If your device has registered online successfully, the status of your VoIP phone should now show the device make/model and also show its IP address and port. If the device never managed to register successfully, you will see the word "Telephone" and "is not registered".
After setting up your VoIP phone, please place some free test calls to the numbers in the following Help Centre article:
Each team trial comes with one hours worth of UK test calls (50 min to landlines and 10 min to mobiles). Place some off network test calls to a UK landline or mobile.
During your 30 day trial, you'll have three 056 UK non-geographic numbers available to help with call testing.
