Earlier someone pointed out that Cisco bought Tandberg. That is true. Having dealt with Tandberg for many years, that fact hasn't quite sunk through my thick cranium - I still think of them as Tandberg. Cisco hasn't thoroughly Cisco'fied the Tandberg product line just yet.

My Z-20 and Z-150 have a separate phone number. This is conflict what they said on the video clip - Time: 04:10 to 04:41. Another one, for the address book on each videophone, and again video clip Time: 01:48 to 02:27. The technician said that ZVRS does not have these features yet. I don't understand why they said that in the video clip. They did not mention that they will work on it.
Each Z phone has its own phone number. One Z phone number can become your "1Number" in your profile. You can add up to 3 other phones defined in your profile, including a VP200 (using its iTRS phone number). When someone calls your 1Number, all 4 phone numbers are effectively called at the same time, and thus ring at the same time. Each phone still retains its own phone number and identity. The only behavior change is when someone calls the phone number that you've delegated as your 1Number, all 4 phones ring at the same time.
The limit to 4 phone numbers is reasoned, but arbitrary. I could tell you all of the things I had to work around while designing it, and all of the weird corner call cases that engineering worked through as a team to make it what it is today, but that wouldn't be a short post.
As for your addressbook comment: which technician? DrZ said ZVRS has shared addressbooks. The woman (identity withheld) said that Sorenson does not: she said nothing of ZVRS not having it in that context.
If you are talking about a personal experience with a specific ZVRS technician, if you have an agent number I will happily refer that technician for training and followup coaching.
ZVRS most definitely does have shared My Contacts between all Z phones. My understanding is that Sorenson must assist you in synchronizing your VP200 addressbook when moving to nTouch. As Sorenson isn't exactly historically keen on giving competitors their products, I have no way of verifying that myself directly.
As for working on it: ZVRS shared My Contacts on all Z phones works today.

My understanding is that the nTouch VP has point-to-point videomail when called from another Sorenson product, but not when called from non-Sorenson phones.
As I stated above, however, I have no way of verifying that myself directly, I'm relying entirely on what others have told me. If you have proof otherwise, I would love to be wrong about the statement I made, and would gladly retract it if that is the case.
