N95 as Sipgate VoIP client

OK, I've had my N95 (through T-Mobile UK) for nearly three weeks now, and so far it's meeting or even exceeding my expectations for it - I'm even thinking of starting a videoblog

One of the uses I would like to put the N95 to, is as a 'client' for our account on the Sipgate VoIP service. Currently, we have a hardware VoIP telephone at home (a Grandstream BT101, for anyone interested in such things), which we use almost exclusively for outgoing overseas calls. I was thinking that when we go abroad, and if we can gain Internet access, it would be handy to be able to connect to Sipgate via the N95 (over a WLAN) and call the UK more cheaply than we would be able to otherwise.

I say I would like to do this, as I haven't managed to get Sipgate calls working yet, and wonder what (if anything) I've missed. As per Sipgate's own guidance on configuring a Nokia S60 device for Sipgate use (on their Web site - it's E61i-centric, but apparently it should work with the N95), I've configured Settings > Connection > SIP settings (and "Internet tel") as they suggest, but don't know what to do from there. Specifically, the 'SIP settings' now lists Sipgate as a service, but says it is "not registered", which I take to mean that the N95 hasn't connected and/or logged in successfully.

I've Googled and also searched this forum, but can't work out what (if anything) I'm doing wrong, or missing. Is there something like an Internet phone client or front-end which I haven't found yet, or will the N95 automatically place calls via Sipgate under certain conditions (e.g. if it detects a 'registered' WLAN access point)?

Alternatively, if the built-in SIP software isn't that good for Sipgate (or if T-Mobile has hobbled it in some way I'm unaware of), would anyone suggest an alternative N95 SIP/VoIP application which works well with Sipgate?

Many thanks, and I apologise if I'm missing the mind-numbingly obvious - I'm still somewhat new to the N95

I have Sipgate working perfectly on my N95

Once you haved added your setting under Tools/Settings/Connection/Sip settings, go to Tools/Settings/Connection/Internet Tel (if you haven't already) and create a profile called Sipgate and select 'Sipgate' as your profile.

Exit all the way back to the menu and look for the Internet Tel. application (not the same as the one in settings), should be in Tools or Applications if you haven't moved it (I have so I can't say for certain)

Open the application and it will say 'Discovering Services' and then show the name of your WiFi point, click on the this and it will connect to Sipgate. (click again to disconnect)

TIP: If you set the Internet Tel app as one of your shortcuts on active standby screen it will connect automatically when you click it auto opening and exiting the application, click again to be prompted to disconnect

Ah, that would be the problem... I hadn't realised they were two separate applications (duh). I thankfully hadn't moved the Internet Tel icon anywhere, and found it in Tools > Internet Tel, so I'm now most of the way there.

Unfortunately, I get the error "unable to connect to the connection network", so am Googling and checking my settings in the hope of solving it... except I've got to go out now, so I'll have to come back to it later.

Thanks for helping me find the missing link anyway

Try to use other SIP VoIP clients like Fring. It can use SIP and work on N95. Links to Fring and other VoIP clients here.

I struggled getting Sipgate to work on my N95, having read this thread I configured Fring to use Sipgate and it now works perfectly.

Fring works with other services like Betamax (VoipCheap, VoipDiscount etc.).
