Development of VoipCall has been stopped.

VoipCall 0.2.1
In the VoipSMS thread people started asking for a similar program for calling. So here it is :)

It's a first trial. If you've got some suggestions; let me know.

You need the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 to run VoipCall.

In order to use VoipCall, it's important to configure it first.

Go to options and set the following values on the first tab (Application Settings)
Pause sign: p (lowercase, this is default, however unlikely your phone might have a different sign)
Default country code: this is a digit code which will be used when no country code is set.. For The Netherlands it's 0031. For Germany 0049 etc.

Use '#' Sign: set to true.This will add an '#' sign to the end of the number to call. This is needed by VoipBuster.

Accounts (second tab)
Add a new account by tap and hold on the list of accounts. Enter a friendly name and the number.
The number can be retrieved over here:
(Login first and then go to : 'Make VOIP calls from your fixed/mobile phone)
Select your country and a city. The number displayed must be filled in on the VoipCall settings)

Now you can use VoipCall ;)
Just select a contact or type a number in the textbox at the top. and press the call button.
Have fun!

There are two versions available;
- For PDA/PocketPC
- For SmartPhones

The SmartPhone version has some limitations. It does not support favorites and currently only 1 account. Hopefully I can change this soon.

Version 0.2.1 (31-05-2008)
- Parenthesis in numbers will be removed in order to make calls.

Version 0.2 (22-05-2008)
- Move favorite down/up in contextmenu on favorites
- Delete all favorites
- Order favorites fixed
- Phonepad will be visible during call

First attempt...
Hi Mathieu,
Thanks for the app! I tried it but I have few comments:

1. After configuring the app and using a country code where I'm at right now (France) it looks like the app tried to call to my own number...?

2. I saw that VoIPbuster actually has a Java app where you enter your own number and the other party's number and when you click "call" it dials back to you and then connects you to the other party. Can your app use the same method?

The reason I'm asking for (2) is because at least for me, I travel allot and I would like to redirect my call to either a local landline or other mobile phone which is different from the one I registered; doing so will be very useful...

I noticed that the app (also the XP app) using UDP to communicate with VoipBuster so I'm not sure if this is an open interface that they publish or not but it will be very useful!

Again, Thanks allot for the efforts!! Let me know if I did anything wrong and why the app initiated a dial to my own number after selecting someone from my contacts to call to...

Some quick answers.

1. Did you enter the correct number for the account? It must not be your number, but the service number from VoipBuster.
For France it's: 0170909535

2. I've to take a look at that app. I'm aware of its existance. Unfortunately VoipBuster is not giving away a lot of information. :) But I'll take a look at it.
Another option is to configure multiple accounts. You can switch accounts at the bottom of the main screen.

Ok, now it's clear :)
So I will have to enter the local access #. I will try that tomorrow morning...

Let me know if you have more information about phone-to-phone using two numbers (my own number and the number I want to call to) it has lots of benefits when one is abroad and using a pre-paid SIM card... if VoIPbuster will call me instead of me calling out - I will not be charged locally for the incoming call. I will only have to pay VoIPbuster charges which is much cheaper...

The VoipBuster rates for calling to your mobile number and the number you wish to call apply (plus a callsetup fee of 5ct). Costs for the calls will be settled via your VoipBuster account, so make sure you have enough credit.

Example: You are in the USA and wish to call a landline in the UK. You pay a callsetup of 5ct plus a rate of 18Ct/Min + 1Ct/Min = 19Ct/Min

It seems like you also pay for VoipBuster calling you.

I've uploaded a SmartPhone version. :)

Unfortunately I was unable to add favorites functionality as well as multiple accounts. Hopefully I can add this soon.

I've sent you an email with some additional information I've found for better automation of betamax services.

Take a look, let me know if some of these functions can be part of your client, it will be REALLY COOL if it can be implemented and make your program even more complete :)
