    VOIP on Q 9m? (Skype)

    Is there a way to get a VOIP server like skype to work on my phone? There is a skype for smartphones, but I believe its for WM5.

    I would really like this to work with my Wifi, It would save me a lot on international calls...

    All right, since no one else will, Ill try and answer my own question.

    Its seems that wm6 has Voip built into its software, but many companies including motorola have chosen to remove this option.

    It is possible to install a 3rd party support for voip, but the configuration is only set up for pda's at this point.

    Then you will need a SIP like skype. Skype is so far just configured to wm5, there is no support for wm6.

    So long story short, no, the Q 9m does not support Voip.

    Actually I got Skype downloaded onto my 9Qm. I got it directly from the Skype website and installed it. It seems to work ok (I tried the test phone call) but I haven't actually used for a real VOIP conversation.

    Ok, now I feel foolish.

    1. Download skype for smartphones, the .cab file
    http://www.skype.com/download/skype/windowsmobile/
    2. Install it to the SD card. It wont directly install to the device
    3. Move the Skype folder from the SD card to the program files directory
    4. Plug in the Wifi card and open the .exe from the directory. Itll open from there after that.

    Thanks for making me try again...

    skype on motorola q9h

    my skype keeps being disconnected 1-2min after log on. I have the Q9H and a WM 6.1 OS. I just downloaded the 2.5 beta for smartphones and the result is the same. I have got strong 3G signal at site of testing.

    Help anyone?

    Don't use Skype Mobile. It is terrible! I use iSkoot for skype and it has great voice quality. Others have suggested fring, w/c also supports skype. Both are mentioned in this thread:

    Why not try iSkoot? It really does work. I use it everyday to talk to relatives from the Philippines. It's obvious skype is not concentrating on improving their windows apps. It has been terrible from the very first version. Skype mobile requires an enormous amount of data and high speed. 3G is not enough. Wifi is better. But that beats the purpose of having it on your phone.

    VoipSipSdk

    I am now looking for voip solutions. And found information about Voip sdk.
    According to their website www.voipsipsdk.com
    Voip sdk is based on IETF standards (SIP, STUN, etc.), so it should be compatible with other standard based products such as Asterisk, OpenSER other.

    They have all features I need:
    # Dynamically loadable codecs
    # Registrar support
    # Play wav files into conversation
    # Record conversation into file
    # Hold/Retrieve call
    # Forward Call (Blind Call Transfer)
    # Transfer Call (Attended Transfer)
    # Mute Sound
    # VPN support
    # Noise reduction
    # Auto gain
    # Jitter buffer parameters
    # Samples on Delphi, C#, VB, VB.NET, C++ 2005, C++ 6.0, HTML (SIP ActiveX)
    # Windowless samples on C++ and .NET
    # DTMF
    # Adaptive silence detection
    # Adaptive jitter buffer
    # STUN support
    # Comes as ActiveX control

    But before I will download the evaluation version I would like to hear other people experience.

    But it looks like iSkoot makes a phone call not an over the data network connection so you get charged air time.

    I use Skype on my Saga BTW.

    I recent switched to Fring to make data calls for skype. Better voice quality. The downside, you can only use speakerphone or a headset/bluetooth. It would have been nice to be able to use it using the built in phone earpiece.

    Skype client works well on other phones but the Q.
