SPA112 Notes:

Watch out for Vendors that sell “as new” or “like new” many of these devices had core programming changes and the possibility of issues in the future arise when firmware needs to updated.  Pay the extra $5-$10 and get the device brand new.  Also don’t be afraid to buy OEM White Box as these are much cheaper and the same product.  If you have difficulty know that WireSpeed will pre-configure the device to meet the Hosted PBX or Line Integration from your existing PBX.
