Re: [General] Why don't BYOD providers offer provisioning? Right, Toro. I know how to configure stuff manually.
But, wouldn't it be cool to go pick up an IP phone, pick a BYOD provider, read a web page that tells me WHERE to put my provisioning URL, and go.
BTW, there's no need, typically, for the MAC or the IP address -- that is determined when the phone connects.. Typically the provisioning URL has a macro like $(MAC) in it (but the end user does not need to know that.)
I'm just trying to understand why the BYOD providers don't offer this. It would seem to open the market to a much wider audience. Those of us who know how to set up a phone -- we enjoy the benefits of BYOD, but it seems to limit the market for others.
I'm wondering if this makes them a "phone company" and opens them up to paying more taxes and fees?
