    Thankyou for your instructions for upgrade. I took your instructions 2&3 and my Firmware version is up to date. i.e. vi.0.4.80 and thw IP is ;and DHCP enabled. What now?

    Thanks for that. I don't know if you know or not , the reason I asked for help on upgrading my phone was because that was what one of the other FIXYA experts had said would sort out the problems with my internet phone. Would be interested to hear what you thinkis wrong with the set up. Here is my problem. I purchas3ed my VOIP841 and set it up.It worked fine that evening but by the next morning , on the handset display was the message " setting upsystem " and I was unable to use Skype and could not access contacts unless I first switched off the power to the base unit and the router. After I left the power off for 30 seconds, I turned it back on and reset the power to the base unit. I then could use Skype as per normal but after a few hours of non use the same " Setting up system " message would be displayed and I would have to go through the same routine again to use the phone on Skype. Hope you can iron this one out.

    Yes , thesolution was helpful in as much that Ishall know how tocheck for the most recent upgrade.. the reason I asked for that information was becausew the previous expert that i spoke to reckoned that doing that would solve my problem.

    As I said in an earlier message, the only reason that I wanted to know how to upgrade my phone if I had to , was because it was what one of FIXYA's previous experts had said would fix my problem. cheers for your help

You can upgrade your Safelink phone by purchasing a new/different model, call Safelink but tell them you bought the same original phone you started with and half the time theyll do it. Do not tell them that you upgraded and if a foregin CSR answeres the phone ie,Indian hang up and call again in 2 hour intervals until you get an American SCR.I have never failed to upgrade my Safelink devices. Good Luck....

You may not be successful, ever. Newer hardware cannot be run by outdated Operating System. Restore to Vista, then upgrade to 7 and everything will work.
The newer hardware has features that had not been thought about with XP.

The new hardware should run faster and better, but not with old OS.

Problem with philips voip841

Try retrieve the IP address of your VOIP841, on the handset press the “Menu” button, navigate to the “Settings” menu and choose the option “Network”, then "DHCP", it should give you an IP address, make a note of this. Open your Internet browser and type in the IP Address of the VOIP841 into the address bar. The Internet browser will show the internal Internet page of your device. Login with the following username and password:
Username: philips
Password: voip841

After logging in please navigate to the “Skype” menu option in the left side menu. On this page y ou can type your Skype username and password. Once they are filled in save your settings and test on the handset if everything is working.

VOIP841 will not register

Probably there is typo when entering user name or login. Check and see perhaps there are some unnecessary spaces in user name or password.
Also make sure internet connection is on and working + router is configured to accept new connection.

You only need a router and a DSL connection (with a Philips VoIP841). Have a look to this review: - Review :: Philips VOIP841 PC-free DECT/Skype phone - world's first review : Page - 4/4

Philips VOIP841 Cannot connect to Skype - Adsl problem?

Right. I've fixed it!

Here's what I did.

- You need to upgrade to the latest firmware. This is available from the Philips website. Make sure you select exactly the model of your phone. There are some instructions about how to upgrade the firmware in the manual
- Then you need to perform a reset of the system. ie: get a sharp tool and ram it into the tiny little hole on the black box which comes with the phone. If you don't do this after upgrading, it doesn' t work.
- One other tip is to check the firewall settings on your router allow the traffic in/out as well.

I called the Philips service center, and they were a bit useless, but they said if it doesn't work you could try taking the batteries out of the phone for 4 hours. Hmmmm... only try this if the above doesn't work!

Good luck.
