I have seen in dicussions here that Nokia VOIP clinet should not register over edge. I do not know what I am doing wrong, but it registers on my e63 without problems, yet (alas) can not accept or make voice calls, it only registers with the server, and shows in status the icon as if it is connected (checked on the server - it really is)
Now, the problem is, when I am in place without 3G coverage, the phone thus registers over edge, and when the server tries to send incoming call, it fails to do it. The call is missed. Is there any way for me to disable registrations in edge newtworks? (it is strange for voip client to register over such edge connection it knows exactly it would not be able to use... but somehow it happens...)
Switching from dual mode to 3G network only mode in phone settings will no do, because in this case I will turn off voice call as well (and the whole idea is - when sip client is not registered, voip server forwards calls to the cell phone, which whole idea is prevented with these fake registration over edge I am having with my Nokia e63). Cell provider says there is no way do disable gprs or edge only separately from 3g, so I am really stuck with the problem...
Hope I have made it clear.
upd: sure, in first paragraph "internet calls", not voice calls were meant (SIP)

up. anybody confirms?
anybody has a solution?
I have got this model for VOIP calls, but have now to carry two mobile phones to make smth that works, have to start syncronizing them etc etc....
Well SIP is not only for making calls, so in general it should be allowed to register on GPRS/EDGE.
Probably there's some setting regarding which connections may be used, but currently I have no SIP configured so I can't check. Have a look at all relevant settings, maybe you find something?

You mean to send short messages?
None of my friends uses SIP for that, but even if so,sorry, your reply does not make sense either.
In this case (if done so by design) the phone should have SIP registered in plain gprs also, but it does not.
As long as nobody in Nokia will be going to address the bug, SIP will remain unusable for me. One month I can not get any solution from them
After some time I will just throw the phone away. It was the last time I bought an expensive phone of this company. (And I liked 1200, yes. That was monochrome with separate dynamics.)
One addition - to make it clear - the icon on the top is seen, indeed, when SIP is really available (that is, in 3G only), but phone keeps registering even when in EDGE (seen in the menu - in SIP status). That is, in EDGE it registers, but no icon shown.
(to the first post)
I guess what's happening is that your phone registers normally but then no common codec is found (between your phone and your server) that would work at the current network (EDGE in your case).
If there's really no way to block registering on EDGE, you could see if your server has support for a voice codec that works on that.

thanks for you input. It is always good to have an expert.
Could you please, suggest, what codec Nokia VoIP client is expecting to get, when it registers over EDGE connection? I would be happy to provide that
Well the only information we have so far is that you have an E63
This, I think, means SIP Settings Release 2.0:
You can download the PDF manual explaining how to configure the VoIP settings that are normally not accessible. There you can (hopefully) see the lists of codecs available.
Now you would need to cross-check with your server (do you have any control over it or is it some commercial VoIP server?), and see if you find a suitable codec.
About the particular codecs that you might try: frankly, I don't know. What I know is that most of them should have no problems with EDGE and even with GPRS (most need 32kbps - OK for GPRS, others 64kbps - OK for EDGE).. even GSM (standard voice) needs about 16kbps..
I beleive I gave enough information to get the idea that there is no need to explain to mehow to set up connection - it works with 3G. But somebody else might find your references useful, that is O.K.
Too bad you do not know about the problem with EDGE I am having.
