Wanting to get some voip love happening on my apache.

Already running Skype and SJPhone (configged for Gizmo), and using Skype to Skype is fine, Gizmo to Gizmo is fine, but Skypeout is virtually unusable (broken up, jittery, bad quality).

Is anyone using a SIP provider on an Apache/Harrier and getting good SIP to PSTN quality?

Incoming is of no concern to me, I only need outgoing.

A standard mobile phone headset provides good functionality for these clients, or turn your device volume down, and hold it back it to front, so the speaker is by your ear... (watch out for anything that might make a loud noise through it!)

I have posted a similar topic but noone seems to know. I also bought some skypeout credit but the quality is impossible.. at least with the old harrier, the earpiece is also the speaker though using a headset helps incredibly.

Does anyone know of a standard SIP client that WORKS (even at cost) and has a smallish footprint? The few I have tried are all hopeless (never gotten to work) and come in at 5-10 Megs a pop.

SJPhone works fine, and gizmo to gizmo calling is fine, but before i plonk down some $$$ to a SIP provider, I want to know that call quality will be okay.

Hmm, I did a few SkypeOut calls to Telecom employees who said it sounded fine, but haven't tried it recently.

on a cdma connected pda?

ive a feeling its the pda causing the problem, because connecting via WiFi at home yields poor results too, but my Skype dualphone on the same connection works fine...

Using the PPC Skype client on the Apache, but on EV-DO, not CDMA 1xRTT. Skype also works fine over the T3G card, again with EV-DO.
