This ruined all the sound settings on my computer, and nothing is working right after using this. I'm not sure what this did, but it completely ruined my computer.

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.

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 !

There's an easy solution to the expired message that counterpath don't want you to know (they keep on deleting these messages on their support forum). All you have to do is change the date of your computer to a few months before and it will work. then when u don't use it you can just change it back. simple.

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!

Needs Apple Address Book support, Address Book plugin, Growl support, and it's still not 64-bit! Also, I cannot get incoming call ring audio on this beta 3 or the 3.x version! Anyone know a fix?

Best free SoftPhone for Mac. Ok, the interface is not Mac-like, in fact a bit ugly but that doesn't matter. iSoftPhone is buggy and laggy, Zoiper is just a little but still buggy. X-Lite works well and that's it for me.

i searched all the time for a sip softphone too. i bought the eyebeam software - but there were no updates since a year... isoftphone is a little bit expensive... so i found the sip softphone called "zoiper" last month - it works fine with my sip accounts...
