I guess we can make a web page with known issues and point to it. But this is hairy subject what should or should not be there? What makes sense for one does not for the other.

Is the lack of dial pad an issue? Well for some is a feature for others is a show stopper. I cannot make everyone happy.

Is this particular problem a bug in Blink? No. Blink simply complies with how SIP works and avoids using an unreliable technique which was originally thought useful but later amended even by the standardization body who made it while it was adopted by some SIP operators in the mean time. 

So why should this not be on 1 & 1 page instead? So their subscribers know which phone to buy that complies with their particular requirement? 1 & 1 could say, hey we are using some obsolete NAT traversal technique than only phone 1 and 2 implements. Sorry for this inconvenience.

Why should Blink feel obliged to say that it does not work with a list of services that are behind our time?
