How long does it take to set up my phones once I sign up with a VoIP service provider?

If you buy your IP phones pre-provisioned from your service provider, the phones should take only a matter of minutes to set up. Initial provisioning time varies for different phones, but the majority fall in the 1-5 minute range. If you are provisioning your phones yourself, this may take a bit longer, but shouldn’t take longer than 10 to 20 minutes.
