Awesome minimalistic SIP VoIP app, I cannot wait for the iOS version for my iPad -- but it has to support Push Notifications to be useful, else you cannot get incoming call notifications. I would also like to see Push Notification support for the Mac version!

Only downloadable from the crApp Store, so NOT RELEVANT.

I really hate it when otherwise lovely freeware developers turn evil.

"Well, you can also download here:
https://github.com/eofster/Telephone/downloads"

Well, this lead to an older version (0.15.2 is 2 years old and supports PPC)

You can instead download a newer version following the link below. However, latest available version at this time is 1.1.3 while is 1.1.4 on the App Store.

Unfortunately App Store apps are updated before independent site apps.

This is the best sip/voip-phone for me and Germanys arcor.de-voip.
It works well with my HTC RC E160 Headset on a MacBook Pro.
The sound of my voice is a bit tinny for the person I call.
The Integration on OS X is fine and I like the minimalistic (OS X) Appearance.
I didn´t tested Version 1.0.2 (Appstore), but there is a well working previous Version (0.15.2 / Dec.2010) available to download:

I am a new Mac user. I downloaded Telephone and configured my Voip account successfully since it shows me available. I tried to make calls but the problem i face is that my voice is not getting transmitted over the network nor i can hear the voice from the other side. I don't even hear the tone of the bell but the people whom i call do get bells. They answer the calls but we still can't communicate.

I have tried many networks but the problems stays.
Can you tell me what to do about it.

I had problems like those you describe until I turned off "ICE" in Preferences → Network. Telephone works very well for me since then.

Have tried several "phone app's". None of them has brought me any satisfaction.
To download telephone I have to register on the Appstore?
Mr Developer, why do you want to dissuade potential customers to use your application?

Iquanyin had trouble on 05 Dec 2009
i too don't know what to put for "domain." can you add some info so noobs like me know what to do to set this up? i'm new to everything -- mac, the net, voip -- so while i know what "voip" means (even what it stands for), i haven't a clue what to enter for "domain." nor how to get this integrated with some sort of voip provider.

the useful info would be:

1. what to get (and where) to make this work

2. a list of voip provider urls that work with Telephone

3. a way to contact dev if needed.

it looks great, and i see people like it. hopefully i can join them :D

Dear IQUANYIN,

Thank you for the comment. I'll try to make it more clear for the users to find answers to the similar questions.

In order Telephone to work, you need a SIP provider. You can just search Google for ‘SIP Provider' or choose one from our ‘Providers Tested' page (http://code.google.com/p/telephone/wiki/ProvidersTested).

If you want to contact developers, you can join ‘Telephone Discussions' list (http://groups.google.com/group/telephone-app) and post messages there, or you can write directly to me (eofster@gmail.com).

You can choose any SIP provider you want. For example, we already have a number of them listed here: http://code.google.com/p/telephone/wiki/ProvidersTested
