Office IP ph's, ok for std domestic voip?

Hi all,
Had a few office IP ph's turn up & need to know if theres any issues with using them for domestic viop services.
From what Aunti Google tells me, they are the same system.
Theres a few different models but all are commercial office IP based desktop ph's.

As long as you have the passwords and usernames or can be factory reset should be fine.

Will depend on if they are true standalone IP phones or if they are propriety and use a similar propriety central router to interface too.

Mmm never heard or seen anyone using an IP office ph that needed a password.
Maybe for their intranet connection to the outside line yes but would have thought that was set up on the office communications server

Depends on the phone. Some are designed to only work with their proprietary system and don't use standard SIP.

Given your lack of knowledge I'll say you'll struggle. Maybe build yourself a FreePBX server on an Intel NUC to start and then play around with provisioning the phones. Use a registered trunk to connect to sip service provider.

LOL, as always a complicated answer to a basic request for information,
BUT
with an added insult this time.

Nice . not.

Anyways, thanks for the instructions but the ph's really aren't worth that much mucking about for the NZ market.

Pyro's comment was much simpler & a simple pointer for more info
