I've just been in Rotorua over the weekend and had full 3g coverage and been stationary.

All my sip calls were really delayed, so I can onlya ssume the latency was terrible.

Most calls I make in Auckland are pretty good.

Anyone notice this in other 3g coverage areas?

I know voda does not guarantee voip over their 3g network.

what APN were you on, and what software?

The only combination I found that worked was the native S60 one and the Internet APN - everything else was either not working, lagged to hell or would have other issues.

But I have not left auckland to try it so perhaps it was a problem with the site you were on. In auckland when not moving and on good 3g signal it was sweet as.

Using the native client in my e61 and www.vodafone.net.nz

It works real sweet in akl when you are stationary and in wgtn.  I've tried it driving a few times and when you get to sylvia park it drops to gprs ! :)

Yes, thats a pain that dropping back - turn it to umts only and that solves it tho.

I would suggest trying the Internet APN, I had problems on the other one with no audio frequently.

that is the internet apn, the other one is for v live!

I've thought about going umts only, but would like to be able to receive calls all the time as I'm constantly in and out of 3g coverage.
