No disrespect intended, but don't you think if I could change the
behaviour of the phone, I would?  But like most "black box" consumer
devices, I don't have control to do that.

Of course it wouldn't.  The 8-pin RJ45 ethernet cable wouldn't fit into
a standard 6 pin phone jack.  :-)  This is an [S]IP phone with no
configurability of the software.  It's actually sold to be used with a
specific VOIP provider.  I'm just spoofing it to use my asterisk box.

Unfortunately the (consumer) IP phone market is still quite young and
the consumer base small and as such, prices are quite high, which means
having to buy something like what I have and spoofing a little to make
it do what I want.

No can do AFAIK.  It's a closed firmware for a specific purpose.
