Hi All

 

After some advice on an Android app that I  can use with 2talk on Vodafone mobile n/w. 

 

I have tried a handful of Apps (csip, Adore, etc.) - they all work fine on Wifi, but fail to register the line over the Vodafone mobile network. I was worried that it was the Voda network blocking it, but I tried the 2talk Android app, and it works fine on Voda mobile. Problem is, I can't get the 2talk app to work on the mobile bluetooth in the car (I don't think it supports it).

 

So, I'm hoping someone out there has 2talk working on Voda mobile network using a free app that integrates with bluetooth? If so, are there some special settings that help it work over mobile that aren't required over normal fixed line internet connections?

 

Thanks in advance

I use the free version of Zoiper with 2Talk on 2Degrees (and wifi) with reasonable success.

I used Sipdroid for a while with 2talk over various connections (mostly just wifi) and was pretty happy with it.  I can't recall 100% if I actually had it working over vodafone mobile as it's going back quite a ways, but I think it did...

Hope I'm not too far off topic, but does the 2Talk Android app suck lots of battery power on standby and if so, is there a better option?

You don't say what sort of phone you are operating but my Samsung S5 has a SIP facility built into it (settings>call>internet call).  Being part of the phone and its operating system it works well for me and I am usually unable to tell what service my calls are coming from when on bluetooth in the car unless I look at the screen.

2talk + Zoiper seems to work fine on android (Though I am on skinny mobile - mostly 4G).

 

Phone is a Galaxy Note II. The inbuilt SIP seemed to set up ok - but wouldnt make any ringing noise - so not too usefull.

 

Googled the heck out of this - but couldnt find a resolution.

 

 

 

Zoiper seems quite highly regarded and stable.

 

One thing that is worth playing with -  change the network settings to use TCP rather than UDP.

 

Saw this mentioned elsewhere and its true - not sure if there is a downside to changing it though......

 

UDP uses lots more battery - I would say on TCP I havent noticed any extra drain of battery at all. When I had it on UDP it was going down noticeably quick.

Thanks robj63 - Changing to TCP got it working on CSipSimple. Hopefully the app will play nicely with bluetooth in the car... Cheers!

If you can't get the built in SIP stack in Android working natively then I recommend Bria. It's self-tuning too.
