Hi Robin

This will be your issue

And, the Yealink configuration app shows “Register failed”.  I have Account 1 and Account 2 Enabled to carry the ported Telkom number and the Freshphone 087 number. 

Your account is the 2787 number and not your ported number. Your ported number points at that 2787 number, so please remove the account on the Yealink that has your ported number as a username. 

The account will be seen as a hacking attempt on our server (due to incorrect credentials coming through, ie your ported number as a username) Our Blacklisting software will block your public IP( the IP address of your internet connection) Every few days that blacklist is flushed, like what happened on Monday night so that its working for you again. But it will soon be blacklisted again

Now it is working.  No intervention by myself. Overnight fix.......?

Device Offline and Register failed


My service is intermittent.  We run for a while and then don’t have a connection. We’ve lived with it from the beginning and become accustomed to an uncertain service.  I offered to share the experience with a neighbour needing to escape from a fixed LTE in a poor service area and realized just how I have allowed it to drift.  I do hope you can help to debug this arrangement.

My exploration shows the SIP Dashboard is showing “Device Offline”.

And, the Yealink configuration app shows “Register failed”.  I have Account 1 and Account 2 Enabled to carry the ported Telkom number and the Freshphone 087 number.

Hardware is a Yealink W60B with a single W56H handset.

Internet is by Axxess over fibre through a Tenda router.

How do I factory reset my Yealink T 21 E2 handset?

Hi Vaughan, 

It shouldn't be as these settings are set on dial out (the cli is collected from our database) so it shouldn't even require a re-registration but its always good to give a device a reboot to be safe.


Would like to thank you for the guide. Was really a simple process to get my Yealink up and running.

The only thing worth mentioning is that the change of Caller id from the VOIP number to the 010 number only seems to take affect on resetting of the connection between the base and freshphone.

Thanks guys. The big telecoms should take note on how to offer a service.

Hi Louise

I found that 3 instances of your account were running at the same time. 2 on your base and one browser phone. After closing the browser phone and disabling the second account of your cordless base station. All is now working.

Have a great day

Look at the email I sent you

I see its online! and now I can see all the details of the phone which I never saw before.

I can call out, but still cannot call in. The latency however is shocking and my fibre connections seems to be very poor, maybe I should try restarting the router again?

I saw on the interface, but it now went back to registered on the Browser phone. This means that you are using 2 devices with your account on and they will clash all the time. You can't use 2 devices at the same time with 1 account shared between them

I did test and it didnt work, but where do you see that it is online? The web interface from freshphone still says offline to me? 

I have emailed you my IP address as requested.

Your phone is online again. test the incoming calls

Hi Freshman

Sorry, but I dont see the screen shot?
