After using all available search means it seems that this issue is not yet discussed about:
With most of my former NOKIA devices it was possible to do DIRECT SIP-to-SIP calls from one SIP account to another.
I miss this feature on my N9 a lot, particularly because SIP/VoIP is implemented in this device as so user friendly to manage and SIP-to-SIP calls generally are free of charge.
Unfortunately on the N9 "dial pad" only numbers and the letter "p" can be entered - this does not allow to enter a SIP account ID that normally looks like this:
Even the workaround to create a "contact" registering "firstname.lastname@example.org" is failing because it is not possible to enter letters in the "telephone number" space of the contact.
Anyone knows a solution? Or a workaround?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well there's no way, you can enter "email@example.com", however "firstname.lastname@example.org" is possible.
The way you would do that is to first register your SIP account in 'Accounts' and then open up 'Phone'. Click on the dialler icon (bottom, center) then change "Mobile Call" to "SIP", type in your number (example: 12345). This would dial in as "email@example.com", if the domain that you defined in 'Accounts' was "sip.provider.com"
Hope this helps.

Maybe a misunderstanding. To avoid this here an example:
One of my SIP accounts registered on my N9 (in fact I maintain several accounts with different providers) is "firstname.lastname@example.org".
To make a call to a normal telephone number I simply enter that number (including if necessary country code + all local numbers) on the N9 dial pad, after this change from "mobile" to "SIP"-call - N9 asks me which of my SIP accounts I would like to use - after that uses the chosen SIP account as "outgoing line".
There is no problem with this - it is even the most user friendly procedure to do SIP calls to normal telephone numbers - much, much better than the use of any other SIP client in all my former NOKIA devices (I use NOKIAs for SIP calling with the SW built-in NOKIA-VoIP client since more than 5 years).
The problem is to make a SIP-to-SIP call to another user whose SIP account may be
On my N8 it either wasn't possible to enter directly on the dial pad "email@example.com"as it also accepted only numbers. The workaround was to register a contact whose "telephone number" was "firstname.lastname@example.org".
This does not work with my N9 because even in contacts only numbers are accepted as "telephone number", but no "xxxxxxxxx.@sip.provider.com" - even if "xxxxxxxxx" are numbersbecause neither "@" nor "sip.provider222.com" are accepted as "telephone number".
Taking my example: To make a SIP call from my SIP account "email@example.com" (which is registered on my N9 as (own) SIP account) to SIP account "firstname.lastname@example.org" I registered a "new contact", scrolled down in this mask to the (blue) SIP flag(s) and registered under one of them (no matter which one) "email@example.com".
This registers "firstname.lastname@example.org" as SIP service for "new user". Open "new contact" and you will find a "service" named SIP. Touching this you will be asked through which one of your own registered SIP accounts you want to make the call.
This is something similar to the workaround I used with my N8.
SIP-to-SIP calls would be a lot easier if NOKIA could facilitate dialing/entering a SIP adress DIRECTLY with the caller dial pad!!
Not only are SIP to SIP calls difficult if it impossible to use SIP to contact an Enterprise PABX system such as a Cisco, Samsung, Panasonic etc. This feature is readily available on Android and iPhones but not on the N9. To use this facility you need a User Name which is your extension number not an email style name (i.e. 1234@sip_provider.com) as is the case with the N9. Discussing the problem with Nokia Support resulted in the reply "get your PABX supplier to change their software to suit the N9" - unfortunately the SIP standards for Enterprise PABX's is a universal one that is used by all PABX manufacturers worldwide.
Anybody know of any App that will make the N9 perform the same basic SIP functions that other makes and models of smartphone can do?
Not sure what your problem is - my N9 works just fine with a normal_username@server style user name. I am using freeswitch as my SIP PBX.
I am not trying to use the N9 with a SIP provider service, this feature works OK. I am trying to connect the N9 directly as an extension of our business PABX (Samsung OfficeServ 7200), this requires the User Name to be the extension number only on the PABX not 1234@abcde etc. This feature is readily available on iPhones, Androids etc using software such as Media5fone which are universal in that they allow access to SIP provider services (similar to the one you are using) as well as direct access into business PABX's. At the present time several other personal with other makes and models of phone are already using their phones directly into our PABX without any problems.
I am not talking about a SIP provider service. Freeswitch is a software-based PABX, running here locally. And when you specify a SIP user, you do it using the user@host notation. The user part can be a number, if that's what your PABX iinsists on, and the host should be the address of your PABX - the host name gets stripped off and the user part given to your PABX. I still don't see what your problem is.
I am trying to connect into a large commercial Enterprise PABX system running hundreds of Analogue, ITP & SIP services on an Australia wide basis, not a software PABX like Freeswitch.
Presently many staff of the organisation have SIP access into the PABX using Apple iPhones and various makes and models of Android phones, many of the users are using the Media5fone App on their phonesextension connections providing they are within an internet service area. Unfortunately Media5 have decided not to spend development funds on the N9 for a phone with a very limited number of users particularly as Nokia claims the N9 is capable of performing a similar function
All of these phones allow the following configuration:
Username: 123 (extension number on the PABX
Password: xxxxxxxx (the password allocated to that extension
Address: 123.456.789.012 (dedicated IP address of the PABX)
Post: 5060 etc (for security reasons the PABX does not use this particular port.
SIP Transport: UDP
As previously mentioned the N9 will not allow the User Name to be an extension number as it requires a name in the name@host format.
The service company who maintains the PABX system have indicated that it is not an option to run via an external software program such as Freeswitch.
It is now starting to appear that the only possible option is discard the N9 and purchase either an iPhone or an Android phone .

SIP is SIP, no matter if you are large or small, commercial or non-commercial, Entreprise or whatever.
All you need to do is enter your users as <extension>@123.456.789.012
The N9 works just fine with a SIP PABX.
