How many years does it take to add access to the native OS X Contacts?! *facepalm* This simple addition would dramatically improve the usefulness of this app!

The latest 4.5 version works really well on the Mac (10.8.3) now! No pop-up with commercial for a service you cannot buy anyway (living outside north america) and generally quicker and very robust in all ways.

Tried it for a while but had to get iSoftphone due to irreparable crackling with VoIP.ms. Such a pity because the price point is unbeatable. Perhaps that also explains the interface.

Explain why this must be 64-bit.

Haven't pushed it too hard yet, but seems to be a passable SIP client for the desktop.

Alerts don't use Growl.

Inline adverts are visually annoying, but it's fair for Counterpath to include them in a free product. It's also fair that I tell Little Snitch to deny all connections to advertising.counterpath.com !

Be carefull with X-Lite Beta for Mac. I used it, but some days ago I got (and other users too) the message that X-Lite has expired - without any warning about this. I downloaded a new version, but then all my contacts were gone. CounterPath Support says: this is beta software, so on your own risk, enter your contacts again or buy another version.
For me reason enough not longer to trust this software. It seems to be a manner to get you buy a payed version. If CounterPath would have warned me before: okay. But this way? Thank you!

Caveat Emptor, if you don't know what a beta is, you should not be using one.

Many years I used a lot of beta software. Never before a supplier of such software did make expire the software without any notice before. If the supplier had warned me before, I could have decided to buy the software and save my contacts. Now I loosed all, without any warning. For me it was a policy of the supplier to make you buy a payed version, without telling you in time about this policy.
Beta software can contain bugs etcetera, and I should accept that. But beta software should not have an expire date included without telling the users.

I agree they should inform you of an expiration. But no sympathy on the contacts situation. However, it is a major deficiency of X-Lite that it has no option to integrate with the Apple Address Book, IMHO! Counterpath has pretty shotty support it seems. Check out the free app Telephone for SIP VoIP -- nice and simple.

While I will agree that they should inform you of an expiration, it is BETA software and loosing your contacts could be a bug or a change in the later version. Of course it could be a sales tactic too, but if that turns out to be true, they would have a hard time selling their software upgrade version.

As to Beta software expiring, that is the norm. Most beta versions of any software I have seen are all time limited. So if you don't like these negative aspects of the software, do 2 more things:

1. Tell the software developer of your experience and that you are going to share it with others.

2. Don't use the software.

Except that X-Lite is FREE software... ;-)

While it is FREE software they do have a paid version called eyeBeam and of course want you to upgrade to it. That is what the OP is talking about when he says that you can buy the paid version to get contacts that won't disappear...

Well X-Lite 3.0 (free) is STILL downloadable...

I have figured this out about the expired dialog box thing. Just change your clock a month before July 2010 before everytime you load the program and back to the correct date when its fully loaded and it should be fine. Signed up with macupdate just for this LOL
