    I checked cydia and installer and they have apps that alow you to use VoIP. But there is a downside, you need to buy your minites from that particuler app and use their service. I wanted to know if anyone is aware if there is an app that lets you use your own service tht you already have. I have siptalk.

    Digg says fring works with sip and it is in the app store. Is that what you are talking about?

    I'm pretty sure that they are talking about the voip over 3g package in cydia. From what I understand it tricks your phone into thinking its on wi-fi when its actually on 3g. Then you can make voip calls on 3g.

    I like Fring, but wish it would work over 3G.

    On another note, I'm sick and tired of paying AT&T a ton of cash for 3G each month but most solid apps require WiFi. We pay for 3G and we should be able to use 3G for programs like Fring and Joost.

    Bah, I was so hoping to utilize VOIP as it would save on paying £god knows what a month" on PAYG. :(

    Wow , I pay £10 to activate my iphone and I get 1 years free unlimited internet access over 3G + 500 mins free on o2 pay as you go.

    Then after that year is up I pay £10 a month credit top up and I get 500 free mins & unlimited internet access

    But yeah, we should be able to have free VOIP :mad:

    So i just tried fring.. no go.. wont work with my provider(just says that my password is incorrect)... It doesnt have an outgoing proxy option so i think thats why. Also gave siax a try and it dosnt even tell me anything like cant conect or anyother error.

    While ago i used touchmods on my ipod to try VoIP and it work. Now touchmods is only for 1.1.4 ipods. And i have the 2.2 3G Iphone.

    I like fring except for the horrible delay... especially in skype calls (Sinces phone calls go to frings servers first =( ) Other then that, I make calls over 3g once in a while because of the 3-4 sec. lag. Its not a practical solution yet.

    truphone is the only one I found worthwhile...it actually works OK, but prices area bit high...cydia SIP lagged up the wazoo and echo and everything sounded clangy.

    sigh, my BB curve could use wifi to call out and receive calls at no charge to me, or use my minutes.

    The phone just knew that if it was connected to wifi to receive calls through that and send calls.

    VOIPOver3G is made to work with only the few programs that the author has selected.

    I remember reading in the info though, if you want to add a different app to it, you can simply alter the code with a text editer.

    Just hack the hack. :)

    Talkatone lets you make free voip calls with your google voice number.
    Gv connect now integrates talkatone + their usual texting but it costs $3
