Good to know :)

ok, yet I managed to call the phone while it was in suspend. However the
modem was not accessible and the phone could not hang up, as you can expect.

8h use time is enough for me to get a useable phone for work.

I do have an A4 board, I've been experimenting with hardware routing but
so far, no luck. Is the sound routing the same with VoIP? That would
make testing easier. Also, is it possible to modify the
tinyalsa-audio.xml file via ssh (or other remote tool)? If so, how can I
update the changes/reload alsa?

All the best,
