    [HOW TO] Sipdroid- Free VOIP using Google Voice ---- Credit to DXF Member Snow02

    Hey guys and gals! It was posted that Sipdroid worked for them on the Xoom. Luckily, Snow02 (a member at droidxforums) put together an easy guide to follow when setting Sipdroid up. Follow the original thread -> HERE for some tips and help from Snow02. Be sure to thank him for the great tutorial!

    Why would you want to make VOIP calls though? First, if you're overseas and want to call the states. This will work over wifi or cellular data. So as long as you have an internet connection you can call anywhere in the states for free. And they can call you for free on your google voice number. I've tried it and it works great. Second, you're out of minutes for the month. Admit it, it's happened to everyone. Now you don't have to not make a phone call or pay ridiculous overage charges. Or, you might happen to be in a place with no cell service, but you have wifi available. Oh yeah...you can also be on the phone and the web at the same time now.

    Be aware that it is recommended that you set up a secondary google account with google voice specifically for sipdroid. The reasons for this are outlined -> HERE. If you do set up a secondary account, follow the steps below as described, then follow the directions in Post #3 to change the pbxes information to your secondary account.


    Correction: Google voice does need to be installed and linked to your account prior to setting up Sipdroid, otherwise the link to pbxes button will not show up. A link to the google voice apk for the xoom is provided in the next post.

    Here you go:

    Steps:

    1. Download Sipdroid from the market and install it.

    2. On initially starting the app, there will be a button at the bottom that says set up a free pbxes account to link with google voice. Press it.


    3. It will automatically fill in a pbxes account name with your gmail account name. Change this if you wish, just write down what you enter.

    4. You'll see right below that, it filled in the name of the gmail account linked to your phone. Again, this is important, and where I messed up, because I had a different google voice account than the account linked to my phone. For the password, make sure you enter the password for the google voice account listed.

    5.Enter a sipdroid password. This can be anything. Press Create.




    Dial, from the sipdroid app by entering the number on the main screen and pressing enter.

    In the main settings screen, press the SIP Account at the top, scroll down and make sure you check 3G and EDGE if you have a 3G plan.

    8. That's it! Make sure you write down or remember your pbxes account name and sipdroid password in case you have to reinstall sipdroid.

    Here's some more info from Snow02:

    To Change Google Voice Account or Password or Find Info to Set up Sipdroid After Reinstall:
    In the event you need to change the google voice account or password linked to your sipdroid, or set up Sipdroid again, follow these instructions.

    1) Access your pbx at pbxes.org. Your username is the pbx name you chose when you set up sipdroid (see post #1 above). Your password is the same as the google voice password you put in when you set up sipdroid.


    2) Do not edit the information in the Extensions tab. This has the information you need to put in sipdroid if you have to reinstall. Click Extensions to expand the category, then click on sipdroid to bring up the information. In the sipdroid app, the authorized username should match the username box (pbxname-200). The password you put into sipdroid is sipdroidpassword. Do not worry about the information in the "dial" box.


    3) The Trunks tab contains your google voice login information. You can edit this information to link a different google voice account with your sipdroid, or correct login information. Click Trunks to expand the category, then click the GTalk entry. Enter the correct information as seen in red. Then click submit. A red bar may pop up at the top of the screen asking you to click it to apply changes - do so. That should be it.
