Yeah, but ... since you need the DID, and most providers have the
facility at their end, using it avoids all such in the home. At least on
a 99.9999% up time basis.
Did already suggest this. And, applies regardless - PITA losing phone
and laptop (on battery power) for an hour's power glitch, for lack of a
small UPS on the router / ATA. (Softphone, even.)
But at least in the latter case it's up close and personal (or it
doesn't matter), and the provider will have sent the voice mail to your
e-mail in the mean time - for you to pick up when you come out the other
side of the power failure. (During which you're not going to be doing
much with it, anyways - there will be other priorities on your mind.)
