Free WiFi Calling

My journey to free WiFi calling using my old G1 (No Cell Service) and Google Voice. It works great with Android 1.6 on the G1.

  • Get a free DID (internet to phone number) from ipkall.com for incoming only.
  • Create a pbxes.com account and set it up to use ipkall, localphone, and other SIP providers.
  • Install SipDroid on your G1 from the Market and use your pbxes extension credentials to login and receive calls.
  • Install Gvoice Callback from the Market on your G1 to route outgoing calls via Google Voice. (As of 12/11/11 it is no longer free $2.99)
  • 3CX works great as an alternative to Sipdroid and works with pbxes.com & localphone.com on windows, Android, and IPAD.

Enjoy FREE WiFi Calling.

I unlocked an old RTP300 Vonage adapter to use for corded phones in the house. I just created another extension in pbxes.com for it to login to the PBX.

An alternative to ipkall, you can use localphone.com which is much more reliable and you get a local San Antonio number $3.00 setup and .99/Mo. with free incoming and .005 for outgoing (Not needed for use with Google Voice when using callback feature). This also works with sipdroid and the RTP300, in case you want to skip the pbxes.com account.

Just added a Callcentric.com number to pbxes.com and it works great ($2.95/Mo. for their dirt cheap DID promo). Sharing pbxes with a friend, WiFi calling over IPAD and G2. One nice feature is dialing a simple extension to reach your friends.

I'm routing the incoming localphone.com number to my extensions and the callcentric.com number to his.
