If you are going to pay for a softphone with G.729 support i would suggest and ATA device as it is much better than sitting in front of the computer with your microphone and speakers :)

That is my thoughts anyways.
I have just seen a free softphone which claims to support G729.

Here is the link:

I have not tried this yet, it must be worth a look.

Grab it while you can. This is subject to breach of copyright claims (software and codec) , and gets deleted from this forum when it shows up. G729 has a very expensive royalty fee. See

There is an efficient free codec - speex - but the phone companies pretend not to know. Open source softphones usually support speex.

Xpro is remarkably similar to a well known softphone. You can pay for a version with G.729 included at

Interesting post from John Linton's blog:
We will shortly release a 'perfect' VoIP over mobile application.

I have been using our beta version for a year now with no problems.

I will beleive it when I see it and use it.

There has been no updates on this beta since the start of 2009.

It also has an issue with Samsung Symbian S60 Phones.

xten lite here too.

tried a few mics and headsets.

the one here for $1 and $1.84 postage is hard to beat for the money.

very clear and good mic volume.
