Could somebody test our SIP connection? 5197490720 at sip05.unlimitel.ca 

You should hear: "Welcome to the Community Voicemail, sponsored by the
Working Centre". 

I can't tell whether Unlimitel allows direct SIP calls or not. I tried
it from another account and got mixed results - sometimes it works,
and sometimes it doesn't.
