Gigaset A580 IP – more than just making calls
You can use your phone to make calls and send and receive SMS messages both via
the fixed line network and also (cheaply) via the Internet (VoIP) withoutaPC. – Your
phone can do much more besides:
u Make calls with brilliant sound quality (High Definition Sound Performance
HDSP, £Page 9) – for internal calls or calls via VoIP.
u Press a button each time you make a call to indicate whether you want to call
via the fixed line network or the Internet (£Page 39).
u Register up to six handsets on your base station. With your base station, you can
simultaneouslyconduct two calls via VoIP and onecall via thefixed line network.
u Multiline: Create up to six VoIP accounts with different VoIP providers. Together
with your fixed line number and the Gigaset.net number, your phone can then
be reached via up to eight different phone numbers.
u Assign each handset its own VoIP number as a send and receive number. If a
member of your family is called on their VoIP number, only their handset will
ring (£Page 137).
u You can also use the VoIP accounts with different providers for cost control pur-
poses. When dialling, specify the VoIP connection/the VoIP account you want to
use for its lower rates (£Page 39).
u Setting dialling plans for phone numbers or area codes enables you to automate
the selection of the cheapest VoIP account (£Page 140).
u Use Gigaset.net for VoIP calls. Connect your phone to the mains power supply
and the Internet, and enjoy free phone calls on Gigaset.net – without making
any further settings (£Page 48).
u Configure the phoneconnection forVoIPwithout a PC. Your phone'sconnection
assistant downloads general data about your VoIP provider from the Internet
and guides you through entering your personal data (VoIP/SIP account). This
makes it easy for you to start using VoIP (£Page 21).
u If necessary, make any further VoIP settings on a PC. The phone features a Web
interface (Web configurator) that can be accessed via your PC's Web browser
(£Page 110).
u Make sure your phone is always up-to-date. Keep yourself informed about
firmware updates on the Internet and download them onto your phone
(£Page 101).
u You can reduce the transmission power by activating Eco mode (£Page 81).
Have fun using your new phone!
Your Gigaset A580 IP has a protected operating system that offers increased secu-
rity against viruses from the Internet.

VoIP – making calls via the Internet
With VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), your calls are not made via a fixed connec-
tion as in the telephone network, but rather they are transmitted via the Internet in
the form of data packets.
You can take advantage of all the benefits of VoIP with your phone:
u You can make cheap calls in high voice quality with callers on the Internet, the
fixed line network or the mobile phone network.
u VoIP providers will give you personal numbers, with which you can be reached
from the Internet, the fixed line network and any mobile phone network.
To be able to use VoIP, you need the following:
u A broadband Internet connection (e.g. DSL) with flat rate (recommended) or vol-
ume-based price.
u Internet access, i.e. you need a router that will connect your phone to the Inter-
net.
You can find a list of recommended routers on the Internet at:
www.gigaset.com/customercare
From here, go to the FAQ page and select "Gigaset A580 IP". Search for "Router",
for example.
u Access the services of a VoIP provider. You can open up to six accounts with dif-
ferent VoIP providers.
Gigaset HDSP – Telephony with brilliant sound quality
Your Gigaset IP phone supports the Broadband codec G.722.
With your base station and the corresponding handset, you
can thus make calls via VoIP with brilliant sound quality (High
Definition Sound Performance).
If you register further broadband-capable handsets
(e.g. Gigaset S67H, S68H or SL37H) with your base station, internal calls between
these handsets will also be conducted via broadband.
Preconditions for broadband connections to your base station are:
u For internal calls:
Both handsets are broadband-capable, i.e. both support the codec G.722.
u For external calls via VoIP:
– You make the call from a broadband-capable handset.
– You have selected codec G.722 for outgoing calls, £Page 132.
– Your VoIP provider supports broadband connections.
– The recipient's phone supports codec G.722 and accepts the establishment
of a broadband connection.
Please note
The VoIP service Gigaset.net (£Page 48) supports broadband connections.

The base station is designed for use in closed, dry rooms with a temperature range
of +5°C to +45°C.
¤ Set up the base station at a central location on a flat, non-slip surface in your
house or apartment.
The phone's feet do not usually leave any marks on surfaces. However, due to the
multitude of different varnishes and polishes used on today's furnishings, the
occurrence of marks on the surfaces cannot be completely ruled out.
For information on how to mount the base station on the wall £Page 210.
Please note
Consider the range of the base station.
This is up to 300 m in unobstructed outdoor areas and up to 50 m inside buildings.
The range is reduced when Eco mode is activated (£Page 81).

Making settings for VoIP telephony
Before you can use the Internet (VoIP) to phone any other numbers on the Internet,
the fixed line network or the mobile phone network, you need the services of a VoIP
provider who supports the VoIP SIP standard.
Precondition: You have registered with such a VoIP provider (e.g. via your PC) and
set up at least one VoIP account.
To be able to use VoIP, you now need to enter the access data for your VoIP account.
You will receive all the necessary data from your VoIP provider. This will include:
Either:
u Your user name (if requested by the VoIP provider), this is the user identification
(Caller ID) for your account, which is often identical to your phone number
u Your authentication name or login ID
u The (login) password registered with the VoIP provider
u General settings for your VoIP provider (server addresses etc.)
Or:
u An auto-configuration code (Activation Code)
Your Gigaset phone's connection assistant can help you make these entries.
Starting the connection assistant
Precondition:
The base station is connected to the mains power supply and a router. Your router
is connected to the Internet (£Page 20).
Tip:
Leave IP activated as the default line for your telephone (default setting,
£Page 100). The telephone then attempts to establish a connection directly to
your VoIP provider's server after the connection assistant is closed. If incorrect/
incomplete information means that the connection cannot be established, mes-
sages will be displayed (£Page 28).
Please note
Your phone is preconfigured for dynamic assignment of the IP address. In order for
your router to "recognise" the phone, dynamic IP address assignment must also be
activated on the router, i.e. the router's DHCP server must be activated.
If the DHCP server cannot or should not be activated, you must first assign a fixed
IP address to the phone. For information on how to do this, £Page 104.
As soon as the handset battery is sufficiently
charged, the message key f on the handset
will flash (approx. 20 minutes after you have
put the handset in the charging cradle).
¤ Press the message key f.

Completing the VoIP settings
After the entries have been completed, the handset reverts to idle status.
If all the settings are correct and if the phone can establish a connection to the VoIP
server, the internal name of the handset will be displayed: (example)
You can now use your phone to make calls via the fixed line network and
the Internet! Callers can reach you on your fixed line number and your
VoIP number.
Please note
u To ensure that you can always be reached via the Internet, the router must be
permanently connected to the Internet.
u If you have launched the connection assistant via the menu, you will initially
have to press and hold the end call key a once the entry is complete, for the
handset to return to idle status.
u If you try to make a call via a VoIP connection that is not configured correctly,
the following VoIP status message will appear in the display: VoIP config. error:
xxx (xxx = VoIP status code). The various status codes and their respective
meanings can be found in the appendix on Page 165.
You have set up several VoIP accounts ...
You can enter up to five additional VoIP accounts (VoIP phone numbers) via the
Web configurator at a later stage (£Page 121). Together with your fixed line net-
work number and the Gigaset.net number, your phone can then be reached via up
to eight different phone numbers. You can assign the phone numbers to the indi-
vidual handsets that are registered with the base station as send and receive num-
bers (£Page 137).

Server not accessible
The phone has no connection to the Internet.
¤ Check the cable connection between the base station and the router (the LED
on the base station must light up) and the connection between the router and
the Internet connection.
¤ Check whether the phone is connected to the LAN.
– It may not have been possible to dynamically assign an IP address to the
phone
or
– You have assigned a static IP address to the phone that has either already
been assigned to another LAN subscriber or does not belong to the router's
address block.
¤ Press the paging key on the base station. The IP address appears on the hand-
set display.
¤ Press the talk key on the handset to end paging call.
¤ Start the Web configurator with the IP address.

Making calls with VoIP and the fixed line network
Making an external call
External calls are calls made via the public telephone network (fixed line network)
or via the Internet (VoIP). You generally decide which connection type you want to
use for a specific call when you dial the number. You have the following options:
u Select the connection type with the Talk key c (briefly press/press and hold
c), £Page 39.
u Select the connection type via the display key, by assigning VoIP or the fixed line
network to your left display key, £Page 40.
u Select a special connection via its line suffix, £Page 39.
Use the talk key to select the type of connection and make the call
By briefly pressing or pressing and holding the talk key c, you can determine the
type of connection for the call you want to make (fixed line network or VoIP).
Precondition:Youenterthenumberwithouta linesuffix(£Page 39)andhavenot
defined any dialling plans for this number (£Page 140).
~ c Enter number (without suffix) or IP address and briefly press/press
and hold the talk key.
A default line is established on your phone (fixed line network or VoIP £Page 100/
Page 136).
¤ Briefly press the talk key c if you want to make a call via this default line.
¤ Press and hold the talk key c if you want to make the call via the other con-
nection type.
If you have assigned a number of VoIP numbers to your phone, you can define
which VoIP number (VoIP account) is used for external calls from each specific
handset (handset send number, £Page 137).
Please note
u You can conduct three separate external calls via your base station (using dif-
ferent handsets): two calls via VoIP and one via the fixed line network.
u You can define dialling plans for certain numbers or area codes by determining
the connection and therefore the billing method to be used (cost control
£Page 140) when these numbers are dialled.
u Diallingwiththedirectory(£Page 66),shortcutkeys(£Page 68)or rediallist
(£Page 61) saves you from repeatedly keying in phone numbers. You can
modify or add to these numbers on a call-to-call basis.
u If you use VoIP to make a call to the fixed line network, you may also have to dial
the area code for local calls (depending on the VoIP provider). You can avoid
having to dial your own area code by entering it into the configuration
(£Page 139) and activating the Predialareacode forlocal calls through VoIP
option (£Page 139).

§Fxd.Ln.§ / §IP§ Press the display key to select the connection type.
~ / s Enter number or select from the directory.
c / d Press the talk or handsfree key.
The number is dialled via the selected line type.
Exception:
If you have activated the "Automatic Fallback to Fixed Line" option (Web configu-
rator, £Page 136) and the attempt to establish a connection via VoIP fails, an
attempt is made automatically to establish the connection via the fixed line net-
work.
Please note
u If you are using a GAP compatible handset other than the Gigaset handsets
A58H, S67H, S68H, SL37H, S45 and C45, every call will be made via the standard
connection, even if you press and hold the talk key.
u You have activated the Automatic Fallback to Fixed Line option with the
Web configurator (£Page 136):
If the attempt to establish a connection via VoIP fails, an attempt is made auto-
matically to establish the connection via the fixed line network.
Please note
If you have pressed the display key §IP§ before dialling and ...
u ... dialled the number with suffix #1 to #6, your call will be made via the VoIP
account assigned to the suffix. The number will not be dialled if the suffix is
invalid (e.g. no VoIP connection assigned).
u ... dialled the numberwithouta suffixorwith the suffix#0,your callwill be made
via the handset's VoIP send number.
Do not enter a suffix if you have pressed the display key §Fxd.Ln.§ prior to dialling.
Otherwise the suffix will be dialled together with the number via the fixed line net-
work. This may cause errors!

Selecting and dialling a connection via its line suffix
You can configure up to six VoIP numbers on your phone in addition to the fixed
line network number and the Gigaset.net number. A (line) suffix is assigned to each
number (line) of your phone:
u the fixed line network number has the suffix #0
u VoIP numbers have the suffixes #1 to #6 (£Page 122)
u and the Gigaset.net number has the suffix #9
When dialling, you can use this line suffix to specify the connection via which you
would like to call or be charged.
~ Enter the number of the party you wish to call.
~ Add the suffix of the connection (your phone number) from which the
call is to be made and charged to.
c Press the talk key.
The connection is always made via the line with the assigned suffix, regardless of
whether you press the talk key c briefly or press and hold.
Entering an IP address (provider-dependent)
You can also dial an IP address instead of a phone number using VoIP.
¤ Press the star key * to separate the sections of the IP address
(e.g. 149*246*122*28).
¤ If necessary press the hash # key to attach the SIP port number of the person
you are calling to the IP address (e.g. 149*246*122*28#5060).
You cannot dial IP addresses using a line suffix.
If your VoIP provider does not support the choice of IP addresses, each part of the
address will be interpreted as a normal phone number.

If you enter the number 1234567890#1 and press the talk key c, the number
1234567890 will be dialled via the first VoIP connection in the configuration.
Please note
u If you specify a suffix for which no VoIP connection is configured in your base
station, the VoIP status code 0x33 will be displayed. The number will not be
dialled.
u You have activated the Automatic Fallback to Fixed Line option with the Web
configurator (£Page 136):
If the attempt to establish a connection via VoIP fails, an attempt is made auto-
matically to establish the connection via the fixed line network.

Cancelling the dialling operation
You can cancel the dialling operation with the end call key a.
Dialling emergency numbers – defining dialling plans
You can use the Web configurator to block certain numbers or to define which of
your numbers (fixed line network, VoIP) should be used to call specific numbers
(Dialling Plans, £Page 140).
If you enter a number that has a defined dialling plan, the call will be made via the
line defined in the dialling plan – regardless of whether the talk key is pressed
briefly or pressed and held. Any automatic area code will not be prefixed to the
number.
Emergency numbers
Dialling plans for emergency numbers (e.g. the local police emergency number)
are preset for certain countries. Emergency calls are then always made via the fixed
line network.
You cannot delete or deactivate these dialling plans. However, you can change the
connection through which each emergency number should be called (e.g. if the
phone is not connected to the fixed line network). You must make sure, however,
that the VoIP provider for the selected connection supports emergency numbers.
If your phone does not have default dialling plans for emergency numbers, you
should define the plans yourself (£Page 140). Assign them to a connection that
you know supports emergency numbers. Calls to emergency numbers are always
supported by fixed line networks.
Please note: If no dialling plans are defined for emergency numbers and you have
programmed an automatic local area code (£Page 139), the code will also be pre-
fixed to emergency numbers as soon as they are dialled via a VoIP connection.
Ending a call
a Press the end call key.
Please remember
Emergency numbers cannot be dialled if the keypad lock is activated. Before dial-
ling, press and hold the hash key #, to release the keypad lock.

Accepting a call
The handset indicates an incoming call in three ways: by ringing, by a display on the
screen and by the flashing handsfree key d.
You can accept the call by:
¤ Pressing the talk key c.
¤ Pressing the handsfree key d.
If the handset is in the charging cradle and the Auto Answer function is activated
(£Page 94), the handset will automatically accept a call when you lift it out of the
cradle.
To deactivate the ringer, press the §Menu§ display key and select Silent. You can
accept the call so long as it is displayed on the screen.
Calling Line Identification
When you receive a call from the Internet, the caller's number or the name they
have specified is displayed on the screen.
When you receive a call from the fixed line network, the caller's number is displayed
on the screen if the following conditions are met:
u Your fixed line network provider supports CLIP, CLI:
– CLI (Calling Line Identification): the caller's number is transmitted
– CLIP (Calling Line Identification Presentation): the caller's number is dis-
played
u You have requested CLIP from your network provider.
u The caller has requested CLI from the network provider.
If the phone number is identified and the caller's number is saved in your handset's
local directory, the name will be displayed from the directory.
Please note
Only calls to receive numbers assigned to your handset will be signalled
(£Page 137). In particular:
u Calls made to a number that is not assigned to a handset as a receive number
will not be signalled on any handset.
u If you have not assigned receive numbers to any of the handsets, calls to all con-
nections will be signalled on all handsets.
u Calls to your IP address are always signalled on all handsets.
Please note
You can reject VoIP calls by pressing the end call key a. The caller receives an
appropriate message (provider-dependent).

VoIP connections (account), e.g. for specific regional, national and mobile network
prefixes, to be used when calls are made (Dialling Plans, £Page 140). Or define
the VoIP connection to be used when dialling the number ( £Dialling with line suf-
fix, Page 39).
If you are using your fixed line network to make a call, choose a network provider
that offers particularly favourable rates (call-by-call).
Displaying the call duration
The duration of each call appears in the display for calls made via a fixed line net-
work and VoIP
u during the conversation,
u until about three seconds after the call has ended if you do not replace the hand-
set in the charging cradle.

The microphone is automatically switched on again in the following scenarios:
u If, during an external call (you have switched the microphone off), you establish
a second connection, either by accepting a waiting call or by successfully con-
necting to an external/internal consultation call, the microphone is turned on.
If you go back to the first party, the microphone remains switched on.
(If you reject a waiting call or are unable to connect to a consultation call, the
microphone remains switched off.)
u If you have switched off the microphone during toggling, it is switched on
again for both connections as soon as you swap to the other party.
u If you have switched off the microphone during a conference call, the micro-
phone is switched on again when you end the conference call by pressing §Menu§
¢End Conference (toggle).
Please note
