I'm new to the trial and I thought that I would share my experience. I have set up the X-Lite software on my home computer without any problem. I already have Fring on my T-mobile N95. I have a Web and Walk extension to my T-Mobile contract and I have played about with Skype, though only using WiFi sites because my T-Mobile package does not allow VOIP calls. I downloaded the Fring software from the PlusNet link but it would not work when I tried replacing the already installed Fring software (it was just as it had been before the download, no SIP capability). I then removed my old Fring software and did a 'clean' install. This has worked fine and I have just finished an 01 call, using the SIP on Fring, using the N95 connected via my home WiFi. I have tried to connect to Fring via T-Mobile, just to see if would log on rather than try to make a call. It would not log on. I guess that T-Mobile are blocking this capability. I resumed the connection via my WiFi without any difficulty. The really interesting thing is when I phoned my VOIP 01 phone number from my home phone. Not only did it ring out on my computer, it also rang out on my WiFi connected mobile. This raises a possibility of being out and about and, if close to a WiFi, of allowing someone to call my mobile on my VOIP 01 number rather than the more expensive mobile number. This presupposes that I can legitimately access a WiFi while out and about and that I am not committing some form of consumer heresy which will bring down the wroth of service providers upon me. Still, boundaries are there to be tested. Stef.
Welcome to the PlusNet Community site! Thanks for sharing your experience, theres more Fring information available at this thread: http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,58951.16.html I know that T-Mobile has been raised before as a potential supplier who have default settings which restrict the resilience/use of SIP calls, might be worth chatting to them directly to see what they can do - it may be that the data transfer allowance is configured in such a way which causes problems. With regards to the connectivity side of things you can set your handset to auto connect where a WLAN/Wifi is available but be careful as this can completely chew up your data allowance.
