Activating a fixed line network connection as a fallback send connection
You can activate the fixed line network connection on your phone as a fallback connection. If a
call attempt fails via VoIP (IP connection or Gigaset.net), an attempt is automatically made
(without prompting) to establish a connection via the fixed line network.
¤ . . . In Alternative Connection, activate the Automatic fallback to fixed line option
A fallback is used in the following situations:
•The IP connections are busy (you can make calls on a maximum of two IP lines at the same
•The SIP server for the VoIP connection cannot be accessed
•The VoIP connection has not yet been configured or has not been configured correctly
(e. g. incorrect password)
•The phone does not have a connection to the Internet, e. g. because your router is
deactivated or not connected to the Internet.
SMS messages that are to be sent via a VoIP connection are not sent via the fallback connection.
You can avoid having to assign connections to certain phone numbers by using a
dialling plan for these phone numbers.
Deactivate option if you are not connected to a fixed line network (default setting).
Otherwise, you will be switched automatically to the fixed line network if no IP
connection can be established temporarily, e. g. if the phone starts faster than the
router. The phone would therefore not be functional.
