I used JAF + Pkey to flash the new firmware in. Great tool and simplifies alot of things as compared to Phoenix.
can you go in further detail what JAF + PKey is and where we can acquire these?

JAF is one of the best tooling and flashing softwares. when you install the firmware pack, with JAF you are able to select from the entire product code available for APAC or EMEA whichever you downloaded. Selecting the product you want, it'll select the corresponding firmware, product pack and language pack.

i personally don't own one, but my cousin does and that's where i flashed my phone. he owns a mobile store, i'll ask him where he got it and will get back to you as soon as i find out

Firmware flash works great, got another 2 N80's todo now.

The VOIP stuff works fine, registers with asterisk through a nat proxy makes and receives calls.

However, if you restore a backup made with the old V4 firmware you loose some of the N80ie stuff , the Wlan wizard fails to work properly.

So have to work out a way of pulling my contacts off the phone - reflash the firmware then just restoring the contacts back on (cant do this via Outlook as I do not use it).

Charlie, which would you reccommend to use VOIP, Truphone or Gizmo.....what are the benefits and differences, and as you have tried Truphone, can you compare the quality and ease of use of both Gizmo and Truphone.

At first look Gizmo (previously I used TIVI but now converted to Gizmo) now gets my vote, especially as it has a PC client.

There both just as easy to use, once set up, both work great, i give the upper hand to TruPhone just because its 100% free to and from landlines, at least at this current point in time, my vote might switch once we get to 2007.

well its 100% free if other N80 users manage to get an account, or its released before the free peroid finishes...which I doubt, its probably the reason why they didnt release it yet....

The big minus for me is that Truphone dont have and are not planning to have a client for the PC....but as long as they allow both in and out calls to other sip clients like Gizmo then Its something that I can put up with (because many of my friends only have VOIP through their PC)....I just tried calling my TIVI account from my N80 to my Gizmo account on the PC and visa versa in all combinations and all calls went through ok ...so I would think that Truphone should allow this...

And gizmo seems to work fine for me....very clear calls and virtually no lag at all...

I quite like the sound of their "all calls free"plan also
http://support.gizmoproject.com/FAQs/freecalls.php

Quite good if I need to call somebody and their PC is off, but its limited to just some countries at the moment, (France and UK are fine which is good for me) but they say they are looking to add more..

I have also noticed that sometimes my Gismo wont connect :( :(....I am trying it now and I cant get it to connect, I have excellent signal strength, Tivi connects ok, but Giszo doesnt .......

Maybe its time to go back to TIVI ...
