[kwlug-disc] Whats some good Sip providers.

Here are some ideas:

First, don't rely on your data plan. Calling 100% over VoIP may eat it quite fast.  I think it only makes sense  if you have easy access to WiFi.

Setting up a VoIP account with VoIP.ms is a 10 minutes task. No Server to install on your side required.

I wrote this while playing with Asterisk but you don't even need to do that. just look at the bottom section that says "On the Android Phone"


In a nutshell

On the http://voip.ms site
1. Create an account with voip.ms
2. Make a deposit of $25
3. Add a new DID
4. Add a new extension

On your Android phone
1. Install a SIP client (CSIPsimple for example)
2. Configure it with the voip.ms information including the extension id and password

Start calling.

If you want to try before committing, I can set up an extension for you to try so I just need to provide you with the android configuration information.

( I am in no way associated with voip.ms other than being a happy customer)

I'm new to actually using this mailing list so hopefully this works out ok.  Its Colin from the Lug's I'm the guy with the android phone allways trying to make it work long enough to record the meetings...

I need to tell bell to stuff it for my phone plan because they are charging me like 60$ a month for my phone portion of my bill so I'm planning on dropping my phone side of the bill and just stick with my data package for the rest of my contract and the Nexus S supports SIP natively via Gingerbread.  I don't much care for texting but wouldn't mind being able to still do that.  Any ideas or tips/tricks to be able to do this would be fantastic.   

Keep in mind I have no idea how to set up voip and I keep missing meetings that actually teach us how to set them up but demo's of awesome software to do so with keep popping up.
