Whether it’s called a VoIP, voice over IP, IP, or SIP phone, all these terms basically refer to one thing: your phone can make calls over the Internet, to both other VoIP numbers and traditional phone numbers.
So read on to find out how to leverage the Internet to make free international calls through VoIP on IP phones:
Digital phone, Internet phone, VoIP, it’s all the same thing. And you can get it right here at OneSuite for a ridiculously low price, without binding contracts!
The most “advantageous” part of using SuiteAdvantage is BYOD – bring your own device! Sounds like a party? It is, because you get to have fun and choose.
Based on your calling habits and planned budget, you can choose from our suggested usage methods:
I didn’t know that!
But it’s true, OneSuite doesn’t just give you great cheap international calling, we offer so much more as well.
And that’s why we’re here to give you a lightening fast 90 sec run down of what other telecom services we offer. Here’s the video! (Feel free to share our amazing pricing with your friends!)
I’ve found another good application for Android and its called CSipSimple. It’s another popular application for Android OS although not as popular as SIPDroid. I’m writing this article so our readers and OneSuite users have an option when choosing which one to install. Based on my few test calls, I couldn’t find any difference between SIPDroid and CSipSimple. Quality is the same and call volume is similar, too. Both can be integrated with your native dialer which means you can dial straight from your phone dialer and then choose between SIPDroid or CSipSimple if you want to make a SIP call.
CSipSimple though can record call conversation. Just press the record button and the call will be recorded in your SD card. This feature comes in handy especially when you need to record a specific conversation. Okay, without further ado here are the screenshots for setting up your SuiteAdvantage with CSipSimple on Android.
Here at OneSuite Blog we try to help our readers and OneSuite users as much as possible to set up their VoIP SIP devices with OneSuite SuiteAdvantage. We’ve been posting articles and configuration procedures for ATA Devices and IP phones and now we're talking about Linksys PAP2, very similar to Sipura SPA 2002. Both are made by Cisco and the only difference is the light indicators. So the configuration settings are almost the same.
Last week I’ve found out that Counterpath released their latest free softphone, the X-Lite 4.0. I decided to try it and give it a short review and share it with OneSuite blog readers. X-Lite 4.0 is built on the same telephony platform as the previous X-Lite; however, X-Lite 4.0 provides a completely new user interface. While X-Lite 3.0 was predominantly dial pad-centric, X-Lite 4.0 provides a choice of a contact-centric experience, a dial pad-centric experience, or a combination of the two. I am pretty happy with X-Lite 3.0 but like many people, I’m excited when new version comes out so I decided to download, install and use it.
Here at OneSuite blog we continue to provide options for our customers. OneSuite VoIP service can be use with (via sofphone) or without a computer (through ATA device or IP phone). This is a new addition to my series of articles on free SIP softphones that are compatible with OneSuite VoIP service. MiaPhone is one of the easiest softphone I’ve installed and tried so far. Its interface is straightforward and very user friendly. I made my first call 5 minutes after I clicked the download button on MiaPhone’s website.
Last year I reviewed three alternative free softphones for Onesuite VoIP service and Pangolin is one of them. PortSip made an improvement to its softphone and renamed it PortGo. Visually it looks the same albeit for the name change. Features-wise it stayed the same but I think it has less bugs and overall experience is improved.
PortGo is built based on PortSIP VoIP SDK, allowing users to enjoy multimedia communications in a dynamic way.
Although I’ve posted articles about these softphone features and configuration instructions individually, I thought it would be a good idea to put them side by side for easy comparison. Hope this chart is helpful for our broadband access users and SuiteAdvantage subscribers, especially for those with different operating systems!
Have you heard about VoIP? Most of us have but there are still many of us have used it but not know about it. If you ever use the internet to have voice conversations then you’ve used VoIP. Last week I bumped into a college friend of mine who clearly is not too aware of this new technology so we had a quick chat about it. I mentioned about using VoIP because my job requires me to travel and move a lot, and yet I managed to keep the same VoIP phone number in years. If I just stuck to a regular phone line, I might have lost touch with most of my friends.
