    Can you just confirm my reading of the article and version information:

    Currently I have: Product: Standard Perpetual Version Number: 15.5.0

    I have my own FQDN and use my corporate SMTP server.

    From reading the Edition Comparison https://www.3cx.com/phone-system/edition-comparison/ it now seems I will loose the ability to have my own FQDN and SMTP server:

    Custom SMTP Server - Only 3CX SMTP
    Custom FQDN - Only 3CX FQDN

    Or have I (hopefully) read this wrong?

    Interesting about Grandstream. I'm not interested in their phones (I'm a Yealink fan), any plans though on their Analog Gateways FXO and FXS being supported again? I still have some customers running the 4 and 8 port gateways that they purchased when it was a supported product. They are 1/2 the price of the Patton and with the Yealink phones they actually sound better on a Grandstream FXO than the Patton FXO Gateways.

    We stand by the deal we made with you at the time, therefore you can remain using them unless fqdn unbound or once switched to our smtp service.

    Let’s say, we look into what we can do and which devices. But it is not just up to us. Tango is danced with two. So no promises...

    Hi Stefan,

    If my current license is:

    Product: 3CX Phone System Standard
    Version: 15.5.50
    Primary Licenses: 8 Sim.Calls

    Then what do I lose by dropping down to the free 16 simultaneous calls license? Is there a comparison between the free and standard licenses anywhere that I can read?

    Currently renewing the maintenance each year but confused whether there's any benefit to doing this.

    Thanks

    Wait what? No custom FQDN or SMTP sever in Standard? What about hosting partners that want to use standard, can we not use our own domains anymore for new clients?

    If you where on the PBXedition you got more. If you where on a regular std edition you keep what you had. Always renew to keep the services up!

    On new customers no. This part needs pro and up. Still less hassle For you,when your provided certs runs out, ours just work as long you have MA. Win Win

    Hmm... so basically the Pro version is the new Standard in terms of FQDN and SMTP.

    I do have to ask why you force the use of your SMTP servers... its not like you want to read the contents of our email being send (including possibly voice mail recordings is it... That would be *most* unfortunate.

    Also, you reveal the truth... regarding the FQDN certificates. "Ours just work as long as you have a Maintenance agreement" - in other words, we give you this free thing, but you have to pay to actually make it work. - If we don't have a maintenance agreement what happens after 1 year?

    I'm interested in the 24 and 48 port gateways. Templates already exist, and grandstream has been known to write templates for 3cx and give them out. I think you will find that GS is very willing to work with you.

    Specifically, the GXW4016, GXW4024, GXW4048.

    I can certainly attach the templates we have.

    "Unable to reach 3CX Updates server. Check your internet connection and try again."

    This system is in production, has internet, and working fine; however, I'm not able to check for updates! Ahhh!

    Several customers on Win Server 2012 and Debian 8 complain that SP3 breaks down the PBX -- either phones (supported models) are not registering or constantly ringing themselves. No complains about Debian 9 installments until now.

    It should be taken into consideration that your hosting partners may do a lot of work to brand their product as well as create customer portals for their products using our own domains and URLs. We need to maintain custom FQDNs because it's part of our branding strategy. Making us pay more for no additional features other than keeping our branding does not feel like a win/win.

    I am guessing that hosting partners generate a good amount of revenue for 3CX and they might also be the most technical partners, which means lower number of support calls. I hope 3CX is thinking about how to help make those partners successful. We're a bit fatigued from some of the unusual surprise changes that occur release to release. We love the innovation, but we also need product consistency. I'm happy to discuss this further if more details are needed.
