Just as a FYI, i'm reading reports that there are (or were) issues registering with the v9 sip firmware, I can't find the v8 firmware for download anywhere! I did find v9.3.1, try upgrading the phone to that if the above doesn't help: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AusdiKa87-PC6f9ZZ-RpAdVn9GkHuQ
To upgrade the firmware, use the XMLDefault.cnf.xml file posted here and the SEP001956A3C492.cnf.xml file posted here.
You will need to find SIP70.9-2-1S in both files and replace with SIP70.9-3-1SR4-1S to upgrade the firmware.
If that doesn't work, throw the thing in the bin and get yourself a native SIP phone.
