4 out of 5 eggs Good DECT SIP phone 10/08/2008

This review is from: snom m3 Wireless VOIP Phone


- Good audio quality
- Handles 8 SIP accounts
- Base expandable to 8 phones, each of them can use more than one SIP account
- Handles G.711 (alaw/ulaw), iLBC and G729
- Handsfree operation


- Cheap plastic feeling
- No custom ringtones
- Poor ringtone selection
- Unable to define ringtones by caller Id
- Annoying sounds (some can't be disabled)
- Handsfree audio quality could be better
- No paging capability!
- Useless intercom feature (only works between m3 headsets, why don't you implement paging?)
- Limited to 3 concurrent calls (because of DECT limitations)
- RFC2833 DTMF signalling not working, had to use SIP INFO instead (bug?)
- No phonebook provisioning
- No GSM codec (don't care much about this)
- Doesn't use DHCP options 42 (ntp server) 2 (timezone)
- Doesn't include my timezone (GMT-4.5)
- Unable to configure current DST rules

Other Thoughts:

This review was done with firmware 01.16.
At the time of writing, this is the best wirelesss VoIP phone in the market.
I have bought 3 of these phones, and I use them together with some Grandstream GXP2000 and Linksys SPA941 (none of them is wireless).
I really hope they release a new firmware with real paging, phonebook provisioning, DHCP options 2 and 42, and custom ringtones (or at least better ringtones).
I don't consider this phone suitable for office use (yet).
Despite this harsh review, I really like the Snom M3. I'm just frustrated because it could be much better.
I really hope they make it better in next firmware release.
