    Nokia SIP VoIP client for N78?

    I just bought N78 and noticed that it doesn't have Nokia SIP VoIP client. I also looked the specs of the N96 http://www.forum.nokia.com/devices/N96 and it doesn't have it either.

    Does anyone know if there is going to be support for VoIP in N78 devices in the future? Even Fring doesn't work in this phone. Are there any other VoIP clients that I could use in this phone to contact my operator's VoIP server.

    How come this phone doesn't have Nokia SIP VoIP client like many other older N-series phones?

    I know that my question doesn't have anything to do with developing software but I haven't found any other place to ask.

    Both these phones have PoC feature which can be confirmed from the specifications. So both these should support SIP VoIP client. Please check the Settings>Connection>SIP Settings. Ideally it should be present.

    I can't speak for why it's not there or whether there are plans to implement them later (but I'd guess it's not likely).

    VoIP Support in Nokia Devices
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/reso...a_devices.html
    This page lists all the Nokia phones that have VoIP clients.

    You have to do your research before you make your purchases. Not all S60r3 phones have VoIP support. In fact, only a small minority do. Currently, most of ones that do have VoIP seem to be aimed at the business market (primarily the E series), and not the consumer market (N-series).

    I forgot to address your question about fring.

    Why doesn't fring work on your phone? It should. fring will run on an S60r3 phone. It should run on the N78. It's not listed in the download options, but just choose any of the listed S60 phones and it should work.

    Re: Nokia SIP VoIP client for N78?

    When I bought this phone from my operator it was said on the operator's internet site that this phone has VoIP client. When I realized that it doesn't have this feature I called operator's service and they said that I can return the phone. Now the only problem is that I can't find a phone which would be suitable for me. I would need 900Mhz UMTS, VoIP and Wlan and there isn't a phone that would have all of these. That's why I would like to find some VoIP client that would work for this phone.

    I have tested Fring and it doesn't work. When I ring a VoIP call with it the phone I'm calling to rings but after answering the line is silent.

    For nidhigupta, yes, this phone has sip settings but no VoIP client.

    If fring rings but you have no session audio, it sounds like you have some kind of network problem, likely a firewall issue (NAT). Does your phone receive a public or private IP?

    Session audio problems would be experienced by all VoIP clients. You need to try to configure a STUN server or set up port forwarding properly in your network (if you can). I don't know if fring supports STUN, but if it does, that would be your best bet.

    There is no problem of installing Fring on any S60 phone.
    The problem is the ease of use - it is not integrating well into the phone, gets blocked from time to time (you need to restart the phone).
    Lots of moves (illogical) required to make a SIP call (compared to built-in Internet phone in other models), etc.

    Re: Nokia SIP VoIP client for N78?

    The Nokia N78 and N96, as some of the first S60 3.2 based Nokia Nseries devices, differ in VoIP support from previous models.
    VoIP is still possible with these devices. However, some developer APIs have changed, as follows:

    A new "VoIP Audio Service" (VAS) API has been added for 3rd party standalone VoIP applications, which enhances developer access to VoIP functions, e.g. it improves call quality (e.g. packet concealment) and allows to easily switch between earpiece and hands-free-speaker. Third-party VoIP applications based on VAS API will work fine and 3rd party VoIP applications are expected to be released from VoIP developers soon for S60 3.2 releases.

    The Nokia VoIP application called the Nokia Internet Telephony client is not included in these products, as it has not been available for the S60 3.2 release which these products are based on. Those third-party VoIP services such e.g Gizmo and Truphone which are based on the Nokia Internet Telephony client, will not work.

    Forum Nokia will work with third-party developers to support them in porting their full duplex VoIP applications from S60 3.0/3.1 releases to S60 3.2 (e.g. N78 and N96).

    Link to Forum Nokia information on VoIP technologies and the new VAS API: http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/reso...velopment.html

    Update Aug 27th:
    Please note that the recently announced devices Nokia N79 and Nokia N85 (S60 3rd ed FP2) are equipped with the improved, fully integrated native VoIP client with configurable VoIP tab view in the contacts book and presence.

    Re: Nokia SIP VoIP client for N78?

    This (removal of voip) could be done on purpose - it is not present also on N96 and other S60 V3 feature pack 2 phones.

    The reason for this could be pressure by operators - in UK for example the VoIP functionality is removed from the menu of other phones. In some countries (Greece) operators are blocking VoIP packets over GPRS, etc.

    Fring should work as a work arround, but it is not the true solution (it crashes easily and is not integrating well).

    Hello,

    I have a N78 and I use Fring with no problems. I downloaded it directly from the phone´s web browser.

    elmosafer, this thread is about the Nokia N78. For a Nokia N79 and your question, I recommend to use Nokia’s end-user support channels as here we are in the developer centric discussion boards.
