It's possible that the time/date is also encoded into the Caller*ID
signal. I haven't had cause to look into that. It's possible that
the DECT phones ignore the local time and use the time provided by the
Sipura (if the Caller*ID signal does indeed supply this information).
Again, I haven't had cause to look into that.
Check whether your ATA device can be configured to use a NTP server.
Also check whether your soft phone, and the phone connected to your
ATA, has a clock you can set.
