IPv6 support on VoIP / SIP hardware is even worse than most other IT equipment vendors. The only gear I've found that supports it in a dual stack fashion is the Snom M9, the rest of the Snom gear (3xx, 7xx, 8xx) do a half arsed job where it is ipv4 or ipv6 (no dual stack) with static allocations (no SLAAC).
