    From the site:

    sipgate brings VoIP to your iPhone. Finally. You can use sipgate to place and receive calls over Wi-Fi using any SIP-based VoIP-service.

    sipgate allows you to

    * save mobile minutes, whenever Wi-Fi is available
    * bypass roaming charges
    * place calls at virtually no cost when travelling abroad

    Looking fwd to trying this one out! Nice to have a choice from the Fring app.

    This is my first post on MacRumors :)

    First, I want to excuse me for my bad English. I'm just trying.

    I installed the app on my iPhone.
    On my browser, I filled in my sip-provider information.
    When I then type in a number on my iPhone and press the call button... it says "calling".
    But I hear nothing, no beep, no voice at the other side, really nothing!
    Also, the phone at the other side is not ringing.

    I have a voipstunt account and I know that is works, because I use it with my mac. There's enough money on it, there are enough freedays left... no problem!

    But when I log into my account at with my browser, I can there set up the "Using sipgate with your VoIP provider" part:

    Remote SIP username: nikolasvoip
    Remote SIP password: ************
    Remote SIP server:
    Remote SIP realm:

    What do I have to write after 'Remote SIP realm'? I just left this blank.
    I think the major part (for not saying almost everyone) doesn't know what "SIP realm" means.
    But ok, I klicked "Save" and my account was set up.

    Back to my iPhone, I filled in my sipgate usernamen and password. All went well. I tried to make a testcall, but it just says "calling"... nothing more, like said before.

    Can someone help me?

    Another question... the 111 free minutes... for what is that? Is it just to phone from sipgate to sipgate?

    I'm just using the 111 free minutes go start. They give you this to make free calls to try their VOIP services.

    I've had no problems making a call using the free minutes. You might want to try dialing the country code with voipstunt... (+11) for example.
