Default SIPDroid Set-Up Help

I am trying to set up SIPDROID G1 Application but it is confusing. I registered with 12voip:
SIP port : 5060
Registrar : sip.12voip.com
Proxy server : sip.12voip.com
Outbound proxy server : leave empty
Account name : your 12Voip username
Password : your 12Voip password
Display name/number : your 12Voip username or voipnumber
Stunserver (option) : stun.12voip.com

BUT it is confusing as to how to give this info to http://pbxes.org/

Can Anyone help?

I am sure there are many that want to set up SIP on their G1...

Default direct

Seems you do not need pbxes. Why is it pushed on us? Anyway I configered SIPDRIOD to go directly to sip.voip.com with my user name and password and now it connects with a green light. Now I will go back to sip.voip.com and read up a bit. This website helped me.

Default Working?

I made a free phone call to a US Mobile phone and left some Voicemail. I did it over the EDGE network here in Vietnam. I was charged 1000 vnd for DATA or about 5.5 cents here in Nam. I will try a longer call over WIFI today and see if I get charged anything. I am not sure what made the call over EDGE, the SIP or my phone. If a longer call over WIFI results in no charges to my phone then I will know that its working. So far super easy once I connected directly to the SIP server. The Pbxs website must turn away over 90% of thoses that want to try SIP. Its way to confusing to the normal person.

I read in your other post that you have a magicjack... why are you using 12voip.com instead of setting up your magicjack on PBXes? I've been using sipdroid/pbxes/magicjack all together for several months now and it rocks. In the thread you listed I posted a walk through on how to setup your magicjack and such on pbxes.

All you need to do is get your Sip credentials from your magicjack. You can do that by going to Log in | Unofficial magicJack forum but you will need to sign up for their forums. Its a pretty easy process and I love having a wifi phone as I am also overseas on work but I am in Egypt.

Can I directly link to majic jack with sipdroid? I am at a wifi spot right now. I can not get a call through. With or without my sim in the phone. The call that went through before most likely went through my phone normaly. So far sip not working. I will try tpad.com next and try the magic jack info too. They have online help.

I had no luck using Magicjack directly with SipDroid. I had to run it through PBXes.com to get it to work. There is a write up on the magicjacksupport forums Log in | Unofficial magicJack forum . I've been here in egypt just over a year on work now and lately they have really been cleaning up Cairo.

Last night my time after I failed with wifi I went home and read up. I then tried Gizmo5 over edge but it wiuld not register using sippdroid. I will try them today over wifi. Guess I can not contact mj directly for help as using them with a sip phone will terminate my service agreement. Has anyone been caught doing it?

This morning I went to wifi hotspot and gizmo5 is working ! I can use the echo service and calls to my us number stop at a recording that says I need gizmo5 credits. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to the makers of SIPDROID.COM I no longer have to put up with the FAKE VOIP services ! 2cents a minute to call us phones from Vietnam... 12voip.com is not working for me here but I will try again. I will try tpad.com too but did not have my password today to try it. There are many sip provifders out there. Try them all as some offer free calling. 12voip.com has so called free. Put 10 down and call for 3 months. That's why I went there first. I will play with majic jack too as that's already paid for at 30 a year.

If you follow the link I gave you a few posts up you can get your Magicjack SIP cred in less than 5 minutes. I've had my magicjack running through PBXes for over 1.5years now. The thing is once you setup your magicjack you NEVER plug the doggle back into your computer as magicjack would be running from two places.

Also, the connection issue at home might be a port being blocked. Here in Egypt my ISP blocks port 5060 because they offer their own VoIP service. So I had to switch to port 5061(Not sure if gizmo allows that).

I tried port 5061. Will not register. I signed up at 4 other sip servers. Some will not work at all but some try but no recording to say I need an annount / money. Gizmo5 is the best they have a sample number 18005558355 and if you say travel. Hotels they will connect you to a hotel chain. Talked to a lady at howartd johnsons hotels for a while. Call is a bit choppy but understabdable.

The call should only be choppy if your having connection problems. Sounds like I am talking on a regular LAN line whenever I connect to PBXes. You can use port 5061 if you setup your gizmo or magicjack account through PBXes.

If you want your password to your Tpad VoIP / SIP Account then send me a PM with your personal Tpad SIP Number.

If you need any SIP Settings for Tpad:

Username: Your 7 Digit Tpad Number (e.g. 1126789)
Auth ID: Your 7 Digit Tpad Number (e.g. 1126789)
Password: Your Tpad Password when you created a Tpad Account
SIP Domain: sip.tpad.com
Proxy: sip.tpad.com
Real / Domain: sip.tpad.com
SIP Port: 5060 or 8891 or 8791 or 80
STUN (if audio problems): stun.tpad.com
STUN Port: 3478
Full STUN Settings: stun.tpad.com:3478
Other STUN Servers: stun.fwdnet.net:3478

If you guys need any other help or free testing credit then give me a shout!

I tried the tpad when I was at the hotspot. It registered using sipdroid but call would not go through. But I will keep trying. I am in vietnam so I expect problems but so far I am getting close. I want at least two providers as you need a backup. I am not good enough to get the majic jack configured. I also need the push buttons when using it to deal with the credit card companies. They are always freezing my cards because I am in nam. This is cheap enough for me. But 23 cents a minute with the so called voip services is way too much. The majic jack works fine 4 out of 5 times because internet cafes are too full. I just don't like to talk at a crowded internet cafe. Rather be at the riverside cafe talking on my G1.

So far only Gizmo5 is working but only over WiFi. Any other sip providers that are know to work directly with sipdroid? I will keep trying with Tpad for another week. I want two sip providers in case one is down. I have already tried port 5061 with Gizmo5. It will not register with it. Any other know working ports?

You can setup PBXes to use both your Magicjack and your Gizmo account... then you can use port 50601 if your isp is blocking 5060.

Tpad now working! My mistake for not reading the directions. To call a us number you must put a 900 in front of the number you are calling. I will test it more this weekend as time in vietnam is 12 hr ahead of usa time.

Got back to my hotel and played with tpad a bit. Using port 8891 it will connect and make a call over edge network. Port 5060 works with wifi but over edge it is blocked. call is very choppy but late night it will work better. it will however let a call come through to me I would think. I find it all very interesting.....

Question SIPGATE settings

I have a HTC Hero running android 1.5, I have sipdroid lite as I think thats all I need. I have put in the details for my sipgate account which still has a bit of credit but sipdroid just keeps timing out when trying to register. I have PhonerLite working, can anyone help me solve this issue?

Edit: I have tried the full version with the same results. I have checked my account it is still active.

Sorry to reply to myself but I worked it out, sort of.

I followed the help on Get Sipdroid to work with any SIP provider on your Android phone See This, Now Read This to get pboxs setup then I setup sipdroid to use extension 100 on pboxs to access sipgate.

I would have liked to use sipgate direct but at least things are working now.

Hi, guys
I was wandering if you can answer one of my questions.
You see, I want to use my unlocked android phone (on which I have No cell phone providers) to make calls using Wifi network.
I have an unlimited amount of wifi connection all over the city, so I don't want to sign-on with any cellphone providers. My goal is to use android-enabled-phone to make and receive cell-phone calls.

Now, I am not sure if Tpad - is the stuff that will provide me with this capability.

I posted extensive question thread about this, but alas I am progressing very slowly:
How to use free internet with Android without cell plan? Android And Me Forums

Will sipdroid and tpad give me what I want?

ANY help or point in the right direction is appreciated.

Have you had a look at the help file, link in my post above? All I did to connect WiFi is to access WiFi prefs. under settings under the menu key. Scan for networks and enter any security needed. Thats just my 2 cents, it may not help you though.

Thanks, but all I want to know is...

1. Do i need to have a cell-phone plan/sim card in order to use an Android phone to make land-line calls?"

2. Do i need to have unlocked/special version of the phone, or will any G1/G2 phone that I buy used do, for 1) to work?

What settings do you use in sipdroid to work?

I think i changed something in the SIP Account Settings, and the light is red, and says:"Registration failed. 404 not found."

The 404 makes it sound like you don't have an internet/data connection.

Did you see this link?

Here is a clickable link directly to EasternPA's Google Doc if you don't have Gizmo Unlimited Free Calling with Google Voice - Google Docs

It won't help with PBXes, but it has lots of other options if you don't have Gizmo. It's a great doc. A guy named EasternPA started it.

Post VOIP with Android

Always after set up with VOIP provider, Restart your mobile.
Call the VOIP provider & let him check if your call is getting through his gateways.
VOIP with Droid does not work with all VOIP providers

The 404 makes it sound like you don't have an internet/data connection.
Sure would be nice to be able to add comments on the above mentioned link.... are you the owner of that Blog MountainX?

I just was wanted to have a little more insight on adding pbx.com into the equation. I have sipdroid 1.3.10 beta on my droid, and also have a gizmo5 acct. any ideas?

Thanks!

yes, that's my blog. I apologize, but unfortunately I do not have time to administer the blog to the level required to allow comments (because then I have to deal with spam, registrations, emails, and a bunch of other stuff that is time consuming). But we can discuss it here.

I'm running Sipdroid 1.3.10 on my Droid too. I have used Sipdroid with and without pbxes.com. In the blog post I show how to do it without PBXes.com, but at the moment I'm running with PBXes.com on my Droid. So I can probably help you do that. However, PBXes is a little complex. So you will need to read their help and invest a little time learning how it works. Now that I have it working, there are no problems. I even decided to upgrade to a PBXes paid account (the cheapest one).

So let me know what specific problems you are having and I'll reply here.

Thanks! I kinda figured that may be the case, I have had to do the same on one blog.

OK, I have set up pbx.com free acct, and have gone through the literature online. I think I just about have it "partially" figured out. Perhaps you could fill in a few gaps!

Here's where I am, I now have green light, and was able to place a call from "wifi only - airplane mode" on droid to home number. It showed up as gizmo +number.

Is it posible to change this to show my actual cell number? Have you been able to accomplish this?

and, I can't receive calls on the phone this way. It bumps me right into voicemail. Have you gotten past that yet?

I have green lights on pbxes.com status page also.

OH, here's what my log on gizmo5 is looking like....


and... the trunk settingon pbxes.com:

Thanks again!

Glad to help. I'll try to answer your questions after dinner, if it isn't too late. For now, let me just say that, yes, I can set any caller ID number I want using this setup. And I can certainly receive calls. However, setting up inbound routes on PBXes.com is one of the harder steps to understand. I'll point you to a good tutorial when I come back.

Thanks! I added several snaps of some of my settings, to let you see where I am.

OK, here's the link:
[GUIDE] SIPdroid & Google Voice setup (updated 10-19-09) - xda-developers
This tutorial will help you set up incoming routes at PBXes.com and everything else. Even though the tutorial mentions an IPKall DID, you don't actually need one. I did it without using IPKall. Actually, I've done it a couple different ways, and at the moment I'm using CallCentric. However, the basic steps in the link above will work for any situation. However, pay attention to the updated steps. Some of them don't have screenshots, so you have to read carefully.

Do I need to disregard Gizmo5 altogether then?

(sorry.... jumping the gun... going to read now!!!)

No, the same basic concepts will work with Gizmo5 or any other SIP provider. Gizmo5 does not give you a DID, however. That's where IPKall could come in handy. I decided to buy a DID from CallCentric (Dirt Cheap DID) for $2.95/mo. However, that's not necessary to get this working.

I set up a IPKall acct, and as I go through pbxes.com, here's a couple questions:

ring group:
it asks for my sip ext. Would this be the username? or the "My Droid <100>" not sure exactly how to enter that.

I currently still have my gizmo5 info within my current only trunk. Should I just delete that, and change it to the IPKall info? how did you handle that?

btw, CallCentric does have some great rates. We were looking at vonage to switch from landline in the house; but they have even beter deals!

Well, still haven't been able to get it working for incoming calls. Can you expand a little on that?

I am using the pbxes.com info for the extension and the current SIP trunk has the gizmo5 login info. Do I need to just change the gizmo5 info for the ipkall info? (I know I'm close!)

also....

Quote:
Configure IPKall log into your ipkall account and enter your SIP number and server information.
(updated) to route calls directly to PBXes: Enter your-pbxes-extention as sip# and pbxes.com as the sip proxy.
IPkall won't accept my pbxes-ext as a SIP number... am I missing something obvious there?

The SIP ext is what you defined in PBXes under "extensions". I just used integers (1,2,3, etc.).
BTW, I hope this doesn't make it more confusing,but you do not have to set up ring groups. I did at first because the tutorial used them, but once I "figured out the madness" of PBXes, I decided to do it without ring groups for now. That simplified some things and it works fine. Ring groups are a useful feature and I'll probably add them back later.

Use Gizmo5 (or CallCentric as your trunk). I currently have CallCentric and Sip2Sip trunks defined.

CallCentric has a reputation for top quality. (Check DSLReports, for example.) Get the Dirt Cheap DID which gives unlimited inbound calling. (If you use Google Voice, all calls can be free.)

If you go with CallCentric, I can tell you exactly how I have PBXes set up at the moment because I'm using CallCentric. Here's how to do it:

Extensions: SIP:
Number: 1
Display Name: SIP
username: myusername-1
dtmfmode: rfc2833
audiobypass: yes
connectioncheck: no
handoff: no
callforwarding: if no answer, goes to my GV after 20 seconds

Trunks:
Trunk Name: CallCentric
dtmfmode: rfc2833
audobypass: yes
enter your CallCentric account info ("1777xxxyyyy" & password)
server: callcentric.com
register: yes
outbound caller ID: I use my GV number here. Use whatever you want.
dial rules: (assume your home area code is 543)
1543+NXXXXXX
1+NXXNXXXXXX

Inbound Routing: I made a route called "/" (by leaving trunk blank)
Extension: "1"
Regular hours: "*"

That's it. That should get you working with Sipdroid & CallCentric on your Droid. Inbound and outbound calling will work.

Be sure to check out the PBXes status monitor. It's cool.
Once you have this working you might want to play around with more advanced PBXes features.

I have not tried the call-back feature yet, but that's next on my list.

I didn't use IPkall, but if my memory is correct, you would use your actual SIP number (from Gizmo ("1747xxxyyyy"), CallCentric ("1777xxxyyyy"), etc.).

Answers

1) No. Provided you have access to wifi
2) No.

Note. If you don't have access to wifi, all you need is to get a data only plan from your wireless carrier.
