1. qualify makes no difference - that's just a question of whether Asterisk 
checks whether things are still connected or not.  It doesn't make them 
connect (or not) any differently.

2. check the routers that these devices are connected through and see if you 
can increase the UDP connection tracking timeout.  If a device (phone) doesn't 
send a packet within this time, the router will forget the NAT association 
between the (private IP-addressed) phone and Asterisk (out on a public IP 
address), and that means that when Asterisk sends an Invite to the phone, the 
router fails to send it on to the phone, so the phone doesn't know about it.  
Only when the phone then re-registers, does the router then refresh its 
connection tracking timeout, and all is well again (for a while).

3. Reduce the re-register interval on the phones, so that they refresh the 
connection tracking timeout on the router more frequently than it forgets.
