Help with VoIP over WiFi on Android
November 25, 2009 12:31 PM Subscribe
I am looking for (recent) experiences with Android options for VoIP over WiFi to deal with places where I have a WiFi signal, but no 3G/voice signal. I'm looking for solutions for two situations:
(1) In one of my labs at work, there is plentiful WiFi coverage, but no cell/data signal. I'd like to be able to make outgoing calls, and I'd also prefer if I could receive incoming calls.
(2) For international travel, it would be nice to have a way of making calls at least where WiFi is available.

The phone in question in a Motorola Droid (on Verizon), and I have Google Voice (and an account), though I haven't yet used it for much. I've seen SIPDroid, though I'm confused at the relationship between SIPDroid, PBXes, and the SIP provider. This confusion is compounded by the recent acquisition of Gizmo5 by Google.
As I mentioned above, I would like a solution for my lab where I can send/receive calls in my lab and also a solution (I'd imagine likely the same solution) that will allow me to place calls when traveling internationally. I realize this will only be an option where WiFi is available, but that's certainly better than nothing.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Firsthand experiences are especially preferred; the info I've found via google all seems slightly vague. If you have a good solution, specific directions would be especially appreciated. Although I prefer free solutions, low cost solutions are also perfectly acceptable, especially for the international travel portion of things.
Many thanks in advance!
