Sorry, not my area of expertise - I just listed the providers that I
have seen pass by on the list. Perhaps others will be able to assist.
From what I saw at the time, Raul's web posting, let alone his recent
list message to you, was pretty complete.
Don't forget, you can do your testing via wi-fi, and by simply calling
your own house phone (even over wi-fi) or to someone else's cell. And
Also, although not apparent, it is free to register at voip.ms, so you
can explore, and IIRC sip-to-sip calls are free without the $25. The
only time $25 comes in is with the DID. So if you can figure out how
to dial it, you should be able to test voip.ms on your Android for
free. [Figure out how to dial it as in 'normal' phones don't normally
let you enter sip, similar looking to email, phone 'numbers.' A
softphone would. Your pap should do it too, and apparently the way you
do it is to put in a speed dial via the pap web interface, then on the
phone connected to it use the speed dial number.]
So, to start, I expect, register with voip.ms for free, then get your
pap to register to that free account.
I have yet to do this myself, but from what I saw it feels like you
want to enter each individual phone, at voip.ms, as a sub-account.
There seems to be some correlation between 'sub-account' and the idea
of an extension. Allowing, for example, your Android to call home.
Testable by having a home softphone computer call the pap, and vice
versa. This should let you surmount a fair bit of the learning curve,
before moving on to the Android side of things.
