VOIP on Android (Galaxy S - 2.2)

Been trying to setup VOIP on my Samsung Galaxy S but with no joy.
I have "free" broadband phone minutes with my account.
I have logged in to voip.pus.net and it shows i have 240 minutes.
However it also shows on "Account overview" that my status is unregistered - is this because I have not connected yet?
Whenever I try to connect using either 3CX (forever "waiting for profile") or sipdroid (Timeout) I get no connection.
I've done a port forward of 5060 and 5082 through my LInksys router so that should be fine.
Anyone else tried this with success?
Oh and whenever I tried the fring link that failed as well.
"The webpage at https://reg.fring.com/app/newproc.php might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address"
Thanks

Yes.

You shouldn't need to do any port forwarding , the outbound proxy will handle the NAT traversal.

Not on Android but I've used 3CX on windows with success.
Here's the guide to configuring 3CX for Android http://www.3cx.com/blog/3cxphone/android/configuring/
Referring to that guide the following is needed when configuring for use with PlusNet :-

Username - is your 7 digit SIP ID
Password is your SIP password ( note that this may be different from the one you use to login to voip.plus.net )
External server - sip.plus.net
STUN Server - leave blank
Advanced->Proxy - natproxy.plus.net:5082
Hope that helps, let us know how it goes.
Edit: this http://www.3cx.com/forums/samsung-galaxy-not-registering-with-3cx-18568.html?sid=85206da9d7c29342399... might also have something to do with the problem you are having.

Hi MisterW,
Thanks for asking but I had no joy, tried 3CX, tried SiPdroid, all combinations, all with no luck.
Have now un-installed as too frustrating.
If anyone has any other ideas I might give it a go.
Still concerned that my account on the dashboard says "unregistered"

jono,
Sorry about the delay, i'm on hol and access to the internet is a bit sporadic.
Have you tried your voip account from a softphone on a normal pc, sometinh like x-lite , maybe your account isn't setup properly.
Hopefully if Martin ( Dean) see's this he could check your account...

Hi Jono,
OK had a look and seems like I removed fring, so I can't tell you the settings.
However as I'm about to travel I needed to set up VoIP in the hope that I can use it abroad.
After looking around I settled on CSipSimple and have got it successfully registered and made and received calls.
Use the advanced wizard and it should be pretty simple.
HTH.

update... i've now gone back to fring as CSipSimple doesn't seem to want to use anything but the loudspeaker. however fring is working ok, there are instructions on the voip portal.

podman I'm out of the country at the moment so I can't download it and retry it, i think you had to set it up under advanced and put the sip and proxy servers in.
hope that gives you something to go on.
