Hi!

I need to be in touch with my family (who sometimes are in Dubai and sometimes back home in Pakistan) and I was wondering if I could get the softphone line on one laptop, would it be able to work in both those countries? Can we use dial-up for this?

Can I have them download the application to their laptop after activating the line from here?

Anyone who has had some experience doing this, please chime in since my parents are not too technically inclined and I will need to simpplify this as much as possible.

Appreciate your time.

Regards,

Kazmi.

found an answer to one question atleast from the softphone use manual....it does have modes to work on both broadband and dialup..so hopefully that should work..

All I need to know now is that can someone in another country download the softphone software after I have activated the line from here in the US and then use it anywhere. Rolling Eyes

thanks in advance....

Kazmi.

As long as the contry they are in does not block the page, it should be able to be downloaded from your Vonage.Com account web page.

Depending on whaere you are, downloading the softphone may not be a problem, but using it may be. Some of the ISPs in specific countries (I believe Dubai is one from other posts here) block SIP Voip traffic. Since downloading the soft phone is a standard http download, that would work fine. Using it, however, would be SIP traffic and may not work.

You can get a soft phone account and try it, or you can download the X-Lite application from xten directly (same as soft phone, but needs broadband as it does not have g.729 included) and then try it with freeworlddialup, stanaphone, sipgate, or one of the other "free" services. If those work, then a Vonage softphone would likely work as well.

howiewifi,

I did not know some countries block SIP Voip traffics. Do they aim to protect local phone companies? So silly ...
Thanks for the info ...
Any chance do you know any good softphone with call transfer, on-hold features... I use express talk business edition and IMS.. But I could not make IMS work more than 2 seconds...

Thanks
Troy
