Landline phone with own router on FTTP

Just got FTTP and everything is working fine off the VF router. Phone lines are plugged into the VF router, VF router's WiFi is switched off. 3rd party Mesh has been switched to Bridge mode and plugged into the VF's ethernet port.

However I am shocked at how feature poor the VF router is. e.g. There are no Parental controls at all. I know I can get rid of the VF router and plug my own Mesh router into the Openreach ONT, but what about the Landline. 

Are there any 3rd party routers in the market that have a telephone socket at the back to allow the home phone to be plugged in?

Only certain grandstream devices have managed to get a connection due to the multitude of differences between normal voip and Vodafone's digital voice service. 

Grandstream VOIP devices confirmed to be working with Vodafone's Digital Voice service.

DTMF tones are passed straight through as far as I remember, if that's what your asking (?). Never used an autoattendant. My password was 15 characters.

Thanks Ripshod, autoattendants are commonplace in business environment, used by vodafone when you ring them. 

You would have thought they would support the signalling facility for their business offering for business customers :Sad_face: 

Will order one to try.

I have made six attempts to upload instruction about configuring a Yealink W70B base station to work through a third party router with Vodafone FTTP. Each time the post just disappears. So this is my last ditch attempt.

Screenshots and instruction text file are going here:
