Android, does have google talk, I figure your trying to make free phone calling through sip right? since your using android as in the your android tablet, with linphone or any other sip client you can make phone calls with,  I use sipdroid, check for it in the android market, also if your smart phone is a android device as well you can try sipdroid on it as well.

In terms of your lag it shouldn't be that bad b/c i use ekiga on ubuntu 10.10 (linux) and for my set up I have people who call me on plain old telephone systems and there is no lag at all.

Hi Simon:
Thanks for your reply and the information.

All this SIP stuff is new for me.  I got an Android tablet and a Chinese knock off of a Smart phone over Christmas.  I do not plan to use the cell phone connection with these so I got interested in this SIP stuff.  Skype for Android does not have either speech or video at the moment, and I cannot figure out if Google talk is available for Android.

I was finally able to access the smart phone running linphone but using Ekiga on my desktop.  The linphone for Windows cannot connect with the Android smart phone, and I spent a long time trying.  I just installed a few minutes ago the latest version of linphone on the desktop, but at the moment I cannot do anything because the server seems to be down.

When I was connected through Ekiga, though, it was very strange.  There was quite a delay from my speaking on the smart phone to the time that I was heard on the desktop and vice versa.  The longer I was connected, the greater was the delay.  After I was connected for 2 minutes for instance, the delay was almost 30 seconds, clearly unusable.   At the outset, the delay was only a few seconds.  But the quality of the voice was awful too.  Very chopped up.   Is this normal?  I use ADSL.   Can you suggest ways I can get a normal phone like connection for the voice, and I will worry about the video at a later time?

Hi Ted,

First did you received the emails with the confirmation links for the
two accounts ?
On the windows version, password is prompted when needed. If it did not
asked for it, it means that it did not succeed to contact the server.
Are you sure of the configuration you entered ?

Now about the contacts on Android app, we use the Android native
addressbook, which indeed does not necessarily make things easy for
entering sip uris.
My recommendation is to type the sip uris manually and then retrieve
them in the History tab (once you made a call to them).

I installed linphone for Android on my tablet, and linphone for Windows
on my base computer.  I got the free sip from, made 2
accounts (i.e. user names) one for the tablet and one for the base
computer, tried to call each other and nothing happens.  I notice there
is no place on the Windows linphone app to put in my password, while
there is on the Android app.  Also, on the Android app, I cannot put in
any contacts: it says to press menu and then go to accounts, but nothing
happens when I press menu.  Cannot put any contacts on the Windows
version either, but I haven't figured out how to go about doing that yet.
Can anyone help?
