How to setup VoIP SIP in Nimbuzz

8 12 2009

I’ve had a few people ask me about setting VOIP SIP up on their Nokia phones. I personally used to setup SIP manually on my N95 8GB, but Nokia for some reason have removed the manual setup method in newer phones and have left it up to 3rd Party developers to handle this now? Strange!

Anyways, I personally use Nimbuzz for SIP along with the SIP provider SIPGATE, I picked Sipgate as they used to allowed you to setup a free regional UK landline number (its now 0845 or 0870 numbers).

Here are the steps to get SIP working:-

1. Install Nimbuzz
Download and install Nimbuzz to you phone and register.
Note: Nimbuzz can also be used for IM Chat and Talk.

2. Register with a SIP Provider
I choose Sipgate as it was FREE and you don’t have to top-up with a minimum amount every month to keep your account active. Its up to you what provider you choose. Whatever SIP Provider you choose they will supply you all the settings you require when you register which you will need for Nimbuzz.

3. Setup SIP in Nimbuzz
Open Nimbuzz, login, then open ‘Options/Settings/SIP providers’ and select from the providers listed or select ‘Other’.

Enter your settings for the SIP provider, for Sipgate you just need your username, password and proxy server settings and select SAVE. If successful Nimbuzz will inform you and your SIP Provider status should change to ACTIVE.
Now goto ‘Options/Settings/VoIP provider settings’ and select SIP as your VoIP Provider and when you goto Calls in Nimbuzz you will see the SIP image and if you select a number to call it will use SIP for the calls.
