Free Voip
« on: February 28, 2009, 08:05:33 pm »
Has anyone accomplished a free voip setup with Linuxmce.  I have acquired a spa 3102 and was reading the wiki but i would rather use a free or cheap voip. Any suggestions please?  ;D

$9.95 a month for service from Broadvoice is very cheap, imho, and the service is excellent.

True, that is cheap   ;Dand i will have settle for broadvoice, but i was hoping to use a totally free voip provider such as voipcheap due to the fact that i will not be using it to make calls often.  My main intention is to use it to connect to my alarm monitoring since i'm already paying for it in my HOA and seldom calls in linuxmce. so is posible and has anybody done it?

yep, I have got 2 free voip lines from my provider.  Only have to pay a few cents per minute for calling regular phone numbers, almost worldwide except for a few countries which are apparently still suffering from the telecom mafia.

Zaerc, any guidance available in the wiki pertaining to accomplishing that with a company such as voipcheap.....perhaps a guide as to how you did so with your provider?  ;D

I tried to get MagicJack to work, but for something in LinuxMCE was preventing it from fully working... Here were the instructions I used:

yep, I read that guide and wasn't sure if the steps could be applied to a provider like voipcheap. Thanks  ;)
