Hi Liviu,

I understand now better the purpose of that field and is indeed not needed anymore!

If you think about it, they won't work with other SIP servers: no commercial SIP server and no Asterisk, FS, PJSIP, SIP.js, drachtio, reSIPprocate, etc.:  Not a single one of these implement this crazy "ha1b" feature, and none of them give a single damn if the phone is poorly implemented and appends the "@realm" part in the username component: they will happily reply with 401 Unauthorized until the implementor fixes the phone.
