Hi

Following the demise of Tesco Internet Phone, the hardware supplier for the Siemens Gigaset DP450 phones, ProVu, have released instructions on how to unlock these phones for use with any VoIP provider, including Soho66.

To unlock this phone, you will need to do the following:

Step 1 - Update your phone with the latest Tesco Firmware. This needs to be done on the handset, and can be done with the following steps:
  • Press the Right arrow key to access the menu
  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Base
  • Select Software Update and enter the default PIN (0000) when prompted.
    The firmware update may take up to 5 minutes to complete.

    Step 2 - Unlocking the web interface for the phone. Once again, on the handset, do the following:
  • Press the Right arrow key to access the menu
  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Base
  • Type the number 94762001 "Eeprom" MUST be displayed on the screen after keying this number in
  • Type the following number sequence. 01778 06183 06191 and press OK to complete the programming. "Saved" should appear on the screen

    Step 3 - Unlocking the phone for use with any provider. Once again, on the handset, do the following:
  • Press the Right arrow key to access the menu
  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Base
  • Type the number 94762001 "Eeprom" MUST be displayed on the screen after keying this number in
  • Type the following number sequence. 04850 04351 04864 and press OK to complete the programming. "Saved" should appear on the screen.

    Step 4 - Upgrade to the latest unlocked firmware. This needs to be done on the handset, and can be done with the following steps:
  • Press the Right arrow key to access the menu
  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Base
  • Select Software Update and enter the default PIN (0000) when prompted.
    The firmware update may take up to 5 minutes to complete.

    Once you have unlocked the phone, you can then configure it using the generic instructions for the Siemens Gigaset models, as provided on the following link:

    Hi there,

    I've got a Tesco Internet Phone, Model: E337 and I have tried to install the software what came with the disk and it says I am not connected to the Internet to download this software.

    I have tried to search for the drivers for this phone and I failed to find them.

    could someone email me the driver (info AT bluego DOT co DOT uk)?

    I understand the instructions I have replied to in this forum, but my first step it to get the Tesco software working on my laptop.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jamie
