Re: Fring/NimBuzz Replacement

Back to ontopic....

I just tried accessing my VOIP mailbox (121) and the exeVOIP application won't allow me to send tones across it to control the mailbox. i.e. Press 1 for new messages. etc

Will the next release fix this issue?

Thanks,

T.

Yes, but the next release is still undergoing testing.

Hi Clive

The version of ExeVOIP that is currently available via this thread is still a demo version - keep watching this thread for news of further releases with bug fixes and more features.

Any estimate of when we can expect a new release. I note development has fallen behind the original schedule and there hasn't been a new release in quite a while. Is Exetel still developing the app? I'm hoping for a release that works with my Symbian based Samsung i560.

Has anyone experienced the 'self echo' problems I described earlier, where the person can hear their own voice in their headset before the receiver hears the sounds in their headset?

I can't imagine that this problem was because I was testing the app on Telstra's NextG network.

Same here on my 6121c (tried it out for the first time tonight). My ear feels very warm indeed! :shock:

I think the battery use issue is a potential show-stopper for me, as it renders the application impractical for real-world use (unless I keep my phone charger plugged in!).

Not much luck with my test calls so far in Melbourne (both to PSTN and mobile). The other person couldn't hear me at all, and I could hear them only intermittently.

Anyway... well done on the demo so far, thanks. Keep up the good work! :)

Cheers

just reporting that I have the demo version working on the nokia 6120classic - tip top reception, good quality, very little lag to both mobile or landline. Installed by downloading the files and bluetoothing them to my phone and then saving the files (I have a mac, so nokia sooftware suite for me - when exetel do user guides, you might want to mention that it can be done by bluetoothing the files)

Minor annoyance that I have is that when you call a landline, it doesn't do the traditional dialing - it is all quiet, and then the other person starts speaking - takes a bit to get used to.

The first time I use it, I didn't close the application properly (just hit red hang up, not options -> close or whatever) and it sucked the battery dry in 4 hours from I assume talking to the internet - won't make that mistake again!

On the point of closing the application - I note it takes a while to close and disconnect from the internet - wondering why? (not really an issue, again more of an annoyance and I guess I need to be patient)

Also would like the ability to search phone's contacts like the colbysms application - maybe the two need to be combined somehow?

and also a six minute phone call to a landline used 1.51mb up, 1.82mb down = 3.33mb per six minutes - and at 1.5c per MB equals less than 5c for six minutes in the data access - bugger all if you ask me (this was a worry for me when I signed up!)

It's coming - see this post earlier in this thread
http://forum.exetel.com.au/viewtopic.ph ... 88#p232988
for the project scope - the timeline for the final release has slipped a little, though (sorry, I don't know when it will be ready).

Where did you put the files? I tried emailing the files to the phone and it saves the certificates as "notes", which they are not.

ehh... from memory now, I had to bluetooth three files to my phone - they came into my inbox, I opened the key gen file, it was like a text file, I just clicked on save attachment. (no idea where it saved). then opened the cer file, same deal - like a text file, and clicked save file. Then I opened the sis file, which installed.

Initially I thought "where have they just saved, and shouldn't it be in the same folder?", but it seems to be working

probably not really an answer to your question!

The application is in the final stage of development. We will send to Symbian for signing next week. Once Symbian verify the application, it will be formally avaialbe for our customers.

Does it now work on the Samsung i560?

Hello Raymond,
I have been playing with v1.0 exevoip.
Is this the latest ?
Where can the latest be found?
Haven't heard from anyone regards why bluetooth connection in cars doesn't work with voip?
Can anyone get their bluetooth voip to operate in a car? (seems as soon as the internet gets connected via the Access Point, the audio and visual on dash part of the bluetooth connection is lost)
thanks.
