    Does anyone have experience with VOIP applications for Android? iSkoot for Skype is sort of a VOIP app but the calls you make with it are routed over the voice network and use your plan minutes.

    I just read about Sipdroid for the first time here sipdroid - Project Hosting on SIP/VoIP client for Android.

    It looks like this app will let you make calls on WIFI and 3G. I will definitely be checking this out, although I highly doubt Verizon would let something like this run on one of their phones.

    have to

    They have to let it run, Verizon have convinced people they want to run an 'open network' any device any application.

    If they block voip applications there will be hell to pay.

    I run an asterisk server at home so in about a week i'll be able to let you know if they are blocking SIP or IAX ports.

    Working but...

    Mine is working with my own sip server... BUT... when I make a call through sip, for some reason I loose the 3G connection logo, and gets replaced by the 1X one...

    They might be doing some port prioritization, QoS or something based on the ports???

    Can anybody post comments?

    So this will allow you to make calls on a Wifi network via your Droid.

    But will this also allow you to make calls using the Verizon 3G Data connection?

    Taken from the Android Community link above:

    "If you download sipdroid from the google code site and not the android market, then you can make calls on 3G/Edge in addition to wifi.

    http://code.google.com/p/sipdroid/"


    Does this apply to Verizon Droid users too??
    I currently have Google Voice from the Android market on my phone.

    I'm very interested in this because I have the 450min plan and I'm about to cancel my Unltd Text plan soon. I don't have the 5 Favorite friends plan which is only on 900min and up.

    I don't use the phone that much to switch to the 900 F&F plan.
    Some months I may peek over 450 but not by huge amounts, but that is with the Free Verizon to Verizon calls. Mostly my family have VZW and a couple friends.

    Can you make VOIP calls via the Verizon 3G network?

    Or do I have to be in a Wifi network to use it????

    Someone in that link above said you can do both.

    Great I'm gonna set this up as soon as I get home today!!!!!

    How come everyone isn't running this setup?

    You can make calls from your Google Voice+SipDroid to Regular Cell and Landline phones right?

    You can make outgoing calls, but if you're using Gizmo5 you have to pay to do that. However, Gizmo5 allows free incoming calls. So if you use the google voice webpage to make calls they are free, because when you call from the website they call your phone. You just have to set gvoice to forward calls to your Gizmo5 # and not your cell #.

    I cannot for the life of me get this to work. I signed up with pbxes.org and created an acount and an extension. Left the default settings in sipdroid. entered username and password and i keep getting "No suitable network available" - tried wifi and 3G. i guess i'm not understanding how this works at all. A better error message would be helpful. I even uninstalled sipdroid and installed it from the internet and still same results. tried udp isntead of tcp as well.

    what am i missing? I see there are "Trunks" and inbound routing and outbound routing...do i need to enter those?

    Some guidance would be very helpful, thanks in advance.

    Sipdroid - codec

    Loaded the version from the market and found that my asterisk box was rejecting the call as only ulaw was enabled. Reloaded sip.conf with ulaw & alaw and the calls completed (both 3g & wifi). Probably will reinstall the program from http://sipdroid.googlecode.com/files/Sipdroid-1.1.8.apk and try it again.

    Well, the search function works. Kinda. At least I won't be starting a new thread right?

    Is there any way to get Skype to get work with Sipdroid?

    If you don't already have a Gizmo5 account, are you just out of luck if you get a Google Voice invite as far as tying them together, or are they the same thing now?

    Any info on the above?

    Is there a way to get a Gizmo account if you have a GV account, or do you have to go hunting for someone who has one they're not using who'll trade you?

    Also, I've been looking, but it's escaping me: how can you set up other voip providers with sipdroid? It seems like it should be possible to use your skype account, but I have no idea how.
