Use an ATA instead. Connect your Panasonic cordless to it as a handset
Siiiick!!
I didn't know about those, awesome solution because with the Voip devices with a wireless phone bundled are normally expensive and the handset glitchy/not very good. You can pickup very good Panasonic wireless phones in charity shops for R50 a pop.

Are they pretty hassle free and decent sound quality?
I assuming you need one port per analogue phone that you connect?

Ja. A lot of them are full on VoIP hardware with web server for config, just without the handset and will do echo cancellation and the like.

I used to use the Yeastar TA-100 and Yeastar TA-200 before, but no-one local seems to be supplying them anymore

The Cisco ones are top in terms of quality, but more expensive. Check Cisco SPA-112

I normally get the 2 port. Connect a normally cheapy handset on one port, and a cordless on the other.

For some you can add multiple sip accounts, and choose which port will ring for each. I suggest downloading the manual and checking based on what is available. e.g. Yeastar TA100/200 manual : https://www.yeastar.com/download/Yeastar_TA100&TA200_User_Manual_en.pdf

Thanks for the feedback. Whilst searching the web, I came across a few articles stating ATA devices are a work around however it affects voice quality. The scoop ATA device is R425. The cheapest scoop VOIP phone is R525. I have to say scoop prices are pretty decent. I saw a VOIP phone advertised on makro as an online exclusive for R1200 on scoop for R675. For the fanvil 2sip colour screen.

It's cheaper if you're a dealer

I don't feel decent ATA's are a work around. If you've fiddled with a lot of sip phones you will find that they are a handset with the same ATA in 1 aesthetic box. There are however a lot of cheap ass ones,which give them that rep.

I think he is right. I see Euphoria on my credit card statement when I purchase freshphone airtime.
