My only complaint would be not being able to access the dailpad during a call with SipDroid. It makes it hard to check my voice mail or use prompts.

Holy crap this is the greatest thing in the world. I only use my G1 as a wifi only device (no SIM card or service), but I do have Gizmo5 and Google Voice.

Thanks to this BADASS application, I can now use my G1 to make calls anywhere wifi is available.

/you are my new hero.
//tell me how to make the freaking thing actually RING when I get a call and you'll be my new God.

Man I wish GV would open up invites. I'm using ipkall for my DID. I'd really like to use Google so I could get one in a more appropriate area code.

It is a pretty badass app. However, I didn't code any of it. The SIP stack was written by some student and the Android portion was written by an engineer at iptel. Thank them

It's not possible yet. Right now I guess its only really good for calling out. Hopefully some patches to alert on incoming calls will be added soon.

Btw, for those using the non-market version, Sipdroid has updated to 0.9.5. Since it's mostly bugfixes, there is no change to the primer. Those who are using a HTC-specialized build (which has the added "H" connection icon) should upgrade to this version to fix a connection bug.

Btw, adding this atom feed to your rss reader can help keep you updated on new versions (it works with other google-hosted projects too, like w4ru):

Press menu and choose "Send DTMF..." It might not work with all SIP setups though.

Thanks didn't notice that before! Is this your project by the way? I'm a C# programmer but have been looking at alot of source lately for android apps. I don't think it would be too hard to add a ring into the program. It wouldn't use your system ring but could easily access an mp3 to play on incoming. Haven't fiddled with the source yet but might give it a go for fun.

Nope, it is not my project, nor have I contributed any code (I don't know a whit about SIP). The project lead is Pascal Merle, who I believe is an engineer at iptel. Anyway, if you want to help develop Sipdroid, I think the first stop is to svn the source to your computer and take a look. Then you can submit a sample patch to the Sipdroid developers google group. Pascal might give you commit access then.

There is an open issue for incoming call alerts here and some discussion here. However it seems to have been merged with some other related issues so i'm not sure there is heart in it with the current devs for a real fix.

Hi guys! i hope this is the right thread to post this.

i've got a G1 updated to 1.5 and have d/l Sipdroid through Market. i'm only interested in using the calling to the U.S. through WiFi at the moment since i've been having problems with Telcel, my Mexican provider, and i have access to WiFi pretty frecuently.

i also have a Gizmo5 account. i'm still pretty unsure how to set this system up. i'm using my home's router at the moment. In Sipdroid's settings, i've got my Giz username and password but am unsure what Server info to input. i also have the Port = 5060 and use WLAN checked -- hmmm, maybe i should try this with WLAN unchecked. i'd like to call a landline in the U.S. and have Preferred Call Type = SIP at this point.

In my G1's upper right hand corner, i have a orange-red dot at this point.

Any ideas as to what i need to fix? Have a great evening!

Gizmo's server is proxy01.sipphone.com port 5060 and just turn the IP always on if available.
