Anyway, all is well until I one day we decide to activate the built in voicemail.
The bloody thing is in DUTCH! Now, admittedly, you can re-record most of it, but certain bits e.g. 'end of messages', 'there are no new messages' are factory recordings, obviously.
This is even though every setting is for UK / English etc... and has been since I bought it.
I assume all those years back I got burnt on ebay? I can't see any way of changing the answering machine language which is burnt into the unit (firmware updates don't seem to affect it, nor does there seem to be region specific firmware). What's even odder is that the base of an old IP300 non-A doesn't say 'Intended for UK' (like the older Gigasets used to) nor does the N300A have any indication that it's intended for the Netherlands or anywhere in particular really.
I also can't see / search for anyone else with this issue on any other forum, but just thought I'd ask. Oh dear :(
