Fanvil C600 Firmware Upgrade

Fanvil C600 Firmware Upgrade

1. Download the firmware here to your computer.

2. Unplug the power on your phone.

3. Place the file onto a USB flash/thumb drive. Then plug the drive into the phone on top.

NOTE: Make sure the contents on the .zip file are NOT extracted onto the USB drive. The .zip file will need to be intact or else this will NOT work. (Some Mac systems do this automatically.)

4. Press and hold the BACK ARROW and HOME key at the same time.

 

 

5. Power on the phone while the buttons are being pressed. This menu should show up:

 

6. Use the left two buttons on the phone (from the left) to move up and down on the menu. Use the third button to accept a selection. The fourth button will back out of the menu. Make the selection for UPDATE FROM USB EQUIPMENT.

 

7. Update from the USB flash/thumb drive.

 

8. It will now go through an upgrade process.

 

9. Once this is done, it will put you back to the main menu. Select CLEAR CONFIG & REBOOT. The phone will reboot and firmware show now be upgraded.

 

NOTE: Clearing the configuration after a firmware upgrade is necessary as it clears out the old settings. The BLF keys will likely have an issue if you do not do this.

Telstra ISDN Shutdown

We have been getting a lot of calls form customers lately about the Telstra ISDN shutdown that has started in September and what it means for them. A lot of customers are saying sales people are telling they they MUST change their phone system to be NBN compatible at a big unexpected cost to them.

This is not true. While there are benefits to changing a phone system some times there is no need to. If you want to keep your existing phone system with ISDN or even PSTN (Plan old Telephone Network) you can simply use a ATA (gateway) to connect SIP or VOIP lines to your already existing ISDN or PSTN phone systems.

A simple box like the below TB 400 will do 4 ISDN lines (8 channels) and has  a cost of $898.00 or a 2 line ISDN (4channels) is only $598

There are also ATA’s for connecting ISDN / PSTN to 4G simcards.

If you have any questions please email info@screwloose.com.au or call 03 90957290 and we can tailor a solution to your needs.
