Snom Tip - Lost Your iPod or iPhone Mains Charger? Use a Snom 820!


On ProVu's Snom Training Days, we always endeavour to make time for a little experimentation.

During our last session in July, one of our very clever attendees discovered that he could use the USB port in the back of his Snom 820 to charge up his iPhone!

So if your mp3 player or phone dies at work and you haven't got your mains charger with you, or if you're a scatterbrain and have misplaced it - the Snom 820 can step in and save the day!

Simply pop your iPod or iPhone USB lead into the USB port on the back of the Snom 820 and connect your phone to charge up your battery.

Unified Communication :)

Check out the picture taken on our July Snom Training Day to see how it's done!

Siemens Gigaset Tip - Mix and Match: Full Interoperability


Get the best solution for your money. With full interoperability in the range, don't pay for features you simply won't use.

Mix and match a combination of Siemens Gigaset IP DECT handsets and base station.

An A58H works great with a C475IP or S685IP base station, giving you a cheaper handset with voicemail.

Alternatively register a C47H or S68H with an A580IP. Getting a posh handset with colour screen and bluetooth (S68H) and a cheaper base station without the voicemail.

All three basestations allow any combination of up to 6 handsets to be registered, and 3 concurrent calls. (Two VoIP, one PSTN).

  • A58H: Entry level, 3 line B/W display
  • C47H: 128*128 colour display
  • S68H: Top of the range, 128*160 colour display, bluetooth, wideband audio
