I’m not a telco or IT guru and have some questions. I’m trying to get a better understanding of basic ATA operation and configuration to help decide what other beta tests to run. Others may already know the answers but here goes…
If I do factory reset on ATA will I need to go through activation with new PIN? Assume so since device will basically be just like it came “out of the box”. Not sure if RW stores configuration info and matches that to MAC already activated with previous PIN.
If I’m on a cell call can I pickup analog phone and continue talking. Don’t think so because call in progress is not routed through ATA, right?
If I get new cell phone that is ‘tied’ (cell number is activated) to ATA do I need to go through ATA activation after d/l and installing RW Extend app on new phone or is provisioning done at RW so there are no direct ties to cell phone IMEI or other unique info? Not sure what info RW retains and what is needed after activation.
We have two RW cell phones in the house. If this device works as well as initial test show we’d like to replace the actual landline with ATA and keep landline number. Yes, we would need to transfer landline number to RW. Assume we would we need a third cell phone for that since there is no direct way to provision ATA without linked cell phone? How would I transfer the device from one cell phone to the other?
Hopefully some of the RW experts and others can answer some of these questions.
