Mac OSX VoIP Software

Post by jazzyjames » Wed Sep 16, 2009 11:17 am

I'm about to sign up to Exetel naked ADSL, and don't have a VoIP router or phone, at least initially I'll be using my Mac as a phone, and see how that goes. Anyone want to shed some light on the various Mac OSX VoIP clients out there? I'll try a few and document my findings here once I've found something good.

SJphone http://www.sjlabs.com/sjp.html,
Xlite http://www.counterpath.com/x-lite.html&active=4.
But an ordinary cordless handset in an ATA is better.

Gday, Unless you are just wanting to play with voip, you may as well just get an ATA and use a normal phone or cordless phone. Voip is well and truly tried now and lots of people have been using it as there "main phone". Softphones are really a poor mans phone and until you get an ATA and cordless phone you can't really use voip as a "proper useable phone" ...
Panansonic 1.8ghz cordless phones are cheap and work well with voip and wireless routers too . But you most likely already have a few normal phones about...
See ya Jim
