Software recommendation please

Has anyone any recommendations for software to be used for the trial - I just have a cheap microphone and can plug headphones in to the PC speakers if needed. I tried x-lite in the past with the old service and hated the interface - is there anything better I should look at?

Apparently Wengophone is pretty decent.
Although clearly not a patch on Bananaphone!
(Not exactly safe for work if you have any volume turned on)

I'd advise you use XLite V2 - V3 seems to have a few bugs in it which cause problems with outbound audio on incoing PSTN calls.
Link for V2:

Re: Software recommendation please

The gradwell people seem to like SJPhone - http://www.sjlabs.com/sjp.html
I've not tried it yet, but it's supposed to be good.
I think all of these softphones have imperfections. It reminds me of browser and email client wars... Maybe a firefox equivalent for voip softphones will emerge one day and the discussion will go away. Until then, feel free to try them all and tell us which one you like most.

WengoPhone 0.68 will only work with Firefox versions 1.4 to 1.5.0.x
Bit annoying really as i wanted to give this a try!
