Pulse to Tone converter for VoIP lines

Dialgizmo Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions about Dialgzmo. If you don't find the answer to your question here, then have a look around the rest of the website. If that doesn't help, then try the Manual. If all else fails, then you can contact us with your question.

What type of phones does Dialgizmo work with?

Dialgizmo should work with all rotary pulse dial phones. All pulse dialling follows a particular specification and Dialgizmo understands and intrprets this specification, so therefore it should work with all phones. If for some reason it does not work with your rotary phone, then we'll happily give you a refund.

Can I use Dialgizmo on a normal PSTN line?

You can, but you shouldn't. Dialgizmo has been designed specifically to work with VoIP lines and is not approved for connection to the regular PSTN telephone network. However VoIP lines are designed to mimic the types of voltages and currents seen on the PSTN network. So Dialgizmo can cope with all of these. We may look to having Dialgizmo approved for PSTN connecton in the future if there is demand for this.

Can a star or hash be stored as part of a speed-dial number?

Yes, you can use a star or hash in a speed-dial. Just store a speed-dial as usual and insert a star or hash by dialing 2 or 1 and holding for 2 seconds, then release. Then continue saving the rest of the speed-dial numnber.

Can I use a phone with a non-standard dial?

Different rotary dial layouts
Most rotary phone dial layouts are the same, showing the numbers 0,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 clockwise around the face of the dial (type A above). However rumor has it that there are some strange and rare rotary phones which do not have a standard dial layout (types B, C and D). It is said that some of these were used in the early days in New Zealand and Sweden, although we've never seen one. If you are lucky enough to have one of these, then you can get Dialgizmo to change its dial mapping to suit. You will need to open the unit and change some little switches. Check section 6 of the Manual for more information.

Why are your prices in USD?

We are located in Australia, but the prices are in USD because the vast majority of our customers are in the USA, and it's just easier that way and makes for far less confusion about exchange rates. Sorry if we offended you! :)
