I have not tried those three, but I have used 12Connect and Weephone and both work well with Asterisk and 2Talk.

Haven't tried those ones either. Since the application has to be running to receive calls (no running in the background), I didn't really want to pay for such a limited feature - though I see iSip now claims to have push applications even when not running - not sure how this will work.


For the odd time I want to make a sip call, Nimbuzz has a built in sip client (it is a social networking / IM client / skype aggregator, but you don't have to use it for that). Seems to work well with 2talk, but I have not tested extensively.

Sweet as long as someone knows a sip client that works with 2talk. I tend to only make outbound calls anyway, so loading it to make a call is no biggie.

With 12 and weephone do you have to sign up with them like nimbuzz or can you setup a connection direct to 2talk?

I'm trying to avoid proxies, i.e. fring

Haven't tried it personally, but ofone is also listed as a freebie. May be worth trying first. Let us know how you get on.

I did not sign up to anything with either 12Connect or Weephone. It looks like the 12Connect product is connected to a service provider (called 12Connect), but they say on Appstore that you can use any SIP provider and I have been using it with my Asterisk box for a while now in addition to 2Talk.

I must admit that I prefer the look and feel of 12Connect and it connected with 2Talk even when my Asterisk box refused to connect just recently. So that is the one I have been using lately.

@mdf: I will try the oFone out. It looks like it could be a rebranding of another model in the appstore. There are quite a few produced by Mailvision i.e. IPico, Witel and oFone. I am not sure just what Push Notification is all about, but I wondered if it enables the SIP phone to be activated when its not the topmost client. If so, then that could be useful.

Edit: Looks like oFone needs an account setup with the OFone service. So not useful really as a general SIP client.

Cheers Mike

Most of the free ones, link to a provider. I just want a sip client. looks like 12 is the go, just waiting to get home and i'll test it with my iphone headset to see if it will use the mic. seem a lot of these sip apps are particular if they will work with a 3.5mm apple mic or not.
