I'm looking for someone to test VoIP calls using a 3G network on an s60 phone.

What do you want to know? I use it on an an almost daily basis and have spent many hours testing 3G over both Vodafone and XT.

What I am trying to determine is 1) how well does it work, 2) what SIP clients work best, 3) is it the sort of thing that the average business cell phone user could use and would use?

sbiddle - what client / app are you using?

You can't beat the built in SIP support on the Nokia E/N Series. I wouldn't use anything else - It's so seamless

I use the built in Nokia SIP stack and client is the  best. It's not available in all handsets however.

On Vodafone it works reasonably well but is not without issues, it is by certainly no means a replacement for circuit switched voice. Call quality while stationary is typically very good but while mobile their can be some jitter and packet los, primarily during handovers or lower signal strength areas.

Answering question 3 is a hard one. It certainly is an option but as somebody who does do phone system support I'd certainly say that the answer is a most definate no. 

Business telephony NEEDS to be rock solid. It needs to work perfectly every time and needs to be simple to use with minimimal training. VoIP over 3G cannot deliver any of these and also has the disadvantage that maintaining a continual 3G data connection does a fantastic job of sucking battery juice.

Running Nokia handsets as dual mode VoIP over WiFi works very well however and certainly can be easily used in a business environment albiet with some training.

I have mine set at the PBX level to do a call fwd to my mobile number if the Extn is not registered, and only have the handset register to cetain WiFi AP's - No 3G. I have found doing this way is very very reliable.

How has XT been going Vs Vodafone. You mentioned previously you had more troubles with VoIP on XT. Is this still the case after further testing?

I've been overseas for the last month so haven't been able to do any testing. Will be back in a couple of weeks and will be interested to see if things are any better.

if they aren't I'll also run some more tests and find where the issues lie.
