To get started, log into your Voiply port by going to After that follow the steps below to configure your Grandstream Wave softphone:

From your Voiply portal, click Services > Legacy Softphone Setup

Toward the bottom, see the drop down. Here you can choose the extension you wish to configure. In this example we will be configuring extension 105.

After choosing your extension a QR code will be generated. This will be used to configure your GS Wave softphone. Notice the "Send Registration information to email" field, you can use this to email the code to yourself, then select the image instead of scanning the image.
