    Default [Req] VOIP/SIP Client Bounty

    I think one of the killer apps for the iPhone is a SIP client. If you are in a place with wifi you would be able to send and receive phone calls through your asterisk server or voip provider. This would also allow you to have an iphone and not use it as your cell phone but more of a cordless phone for your house or your landlines through SIP converters.

    I will start off the bounty at US$100 via Paypal to anyone who can produce an *open source* iPhone gui app that will log in to a user-defined SIP / Asterisk Server and make an outgoing voice call. It's not much $, but if anyone else wants to add to this bounty, post your contribution in this thread.

    After what I've seen you guys do over the past month, it wouldn't surprise me if there are already several people working on this.

    Other places i'm keeping an eye on:
    http://forum.gizmoproject.com/viewto...ghlight=iphone - a gizmo client for the iphone would be unbelievable.
    http://nerdvittles.com/index.php?p=185 - Bluetooth proximity sensing for iphone with asterisk
    http://www.sflphone.org/ (possible to rewrite the frontend to this open source project to be iPhone friendly?)

    Good luck devs, and let us know if you make any progress.

    Exclamation

    It will be great!!!!!!!
    So if i understood corectly then we can use VOIP like skype or voipdiscount?
    It will be superb, cause i use VOIP every day the same as normal phone.
    Thnaks a LOT for your work, i mean everybody that are working on development of an iPhone.

    One more question, i'd like for example to use VOIP not thru WiFi, but using GPRS or EDGE, it's posible something like this?
    So then i can make calls directly from my iPhone and no need any additional equipment.

    As much as I would like to see an iPhone VOIP application come along, can you really see AT&T or any other carrier with exclusive rights to the iPhone allowing you to make cheap/free calls via VOIP....

    I don't see why not. Currently with some of the wondows mobile phones you can download skype mobile and make free call over wifi. Some people who have Sprint or Verizon can make free skype calls over their wireless provider because they have a fast network. ATT and Tmobile have slow networks so it's not possible. Maybe with 3G you can but definetly not with edge.

    We don't need their permission, someone just needs to make the app!
    I suppose a phone company could somehow block VOIP over their edge network, but it would still work through wifi. Edge is probably to slow for VOIP anyway, right?

    Actually this is happening with T-mobile in the states. They have a few phones that have built-in VoIP. they advertise it alot stating just imagine your calls while in your house or where there is WiFi are all free and when you leave they forward to your cell phone.
    it is a good idea. you see we all use our home or office phones when we have access to them to reduce our cell phone bills. they know that but what they are betting on is fowarding all the home and business calls from your answer-machine/ secretary to you directly and make mor emoney from you also the service is not free think it was $19.99 (but this number can be wrong cause i didnt buy the seervice seeing they needed me to use specific phones).

    this is good business for the providers... if X provider sees this, makes their service, bundles it with plans and promotes it, they will make a load of cash...

    if they do like at&t and "deny" it just means they will eventually lose out on a good business...

    I'll up the bounty. I'll pay $1,500 for a GUI app that does this, I might want to help with the graphics, but I'll pay.

    Hack on!

    Hey guys, I have a Nokia E61 which has a native SIP client and Wifi connection, I always use my E61 and call for free using VoIP over SIP, or Skype or Gtalk.

    I also tried VoIP over Edge, but it sucks big time, over Wifi it's perfect.

    There are a lot of clients that handle SIP for Symbian, and when you try to call any number it offers you the option to call via the cellular network or VoIP, it's a shame that Apple doesn't open the API officially.

    I really believe that an SIP client for iPhone will be THE killer app.

    Voip could work over edge but I think the client/server may need some tweaks to make this work. I believe edge has about a 900ms+ round trip response time, sip normally dies at 200ms or slower. I do know that they do voip over sat links, and those are near 900ms as well so it wouldn't be impossible... IMO.
