Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

Doing Txt sms is still fine. But I feel the buttons bit flat compared to my Ex-Nokias like E65, etc

Don't have X3-02 (yet), but by visiting Fring and Skype web pages it looks like they are not available for X3-02.

 

Why don't you use the built in VoIP ? if you requirement is just to

then X3-02 should be able to deliver that with the built in VoIP as the previous devices like 6300i could do it.

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

I understand. But can u help me in guiding to set voip. Becos I get Gizmo5 wizard when I open the Internet Phone. How to override it and use other services? I could have used Gizmo5 but the problem is Google has taken over Gizmo5 and they are not allowing to sign up for a new user. But truly I say, this the simplest phone I want. Really cool. Light weight, professional look, no unnecessary applications, clear speakers, etc etc..

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

There has been quite lively discussion in Forum Nokia how to enable your favourite VoIP provider to 6300i if it is not listed in the phones built in configuration tool. If you know the technical details of the provider you can set each of the parameters by following these instructions. For the really easy setup there is even a TOOL available.

 

This works with 6300i and apparently with 6260 slide according to the thread. Not sure if it works with X3-02, but perhaps you can give it a try and report back how things ended up ? (I am considering to buy this model as well when it arrives especially if the above ways work to put your favourite VoIP provider to the phone)

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

I used to have gizmo5 before on my old Nokia E51 which required bit of setup and configuration I went thru 2 or 3 forums before it worked out and it was working fine. With my new X3-02 , it only toke gizmo username & pass , and you are already there! this lil wee is a winner. Only thing bad is , if you went online much , it is tempting to go online on it, battery goes empty in 1 day. Else than battery I can claim that it is one of the best phones Nokia has built.

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

In 6300i you can control when the phone is online for VoIP by changing the menu>settings>call settings>call type settings. If you choose "voice call only" then it does not connect VoIP. Is that setting still there ?

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

Is there any other option for this?
X3-02 is not listed in iSkoot supported devices. Any other option for Skype?
And as someone mentioned gizmo5 is not registering any new users...

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

Why don't you use the tool mentioned earlier, then you can get free VoIP calls. Doesn't iSkoot count against your cellular minutes (or so I have been told) so is it even free ?

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

I have a skype account so skype is more interesting for me and it would be nice to have an option for skype chat also.
When you said tool mentioned earlier you ment n0kvoip? I tried to open the link, but it gives me errors... Maybe they have some problems.
I did a little search and basically found out that skype almost for sure won't be available for X3-02 (Symbian S40). And it seems all other tools that supported skype no longer support it, because Skype asked for removal...
And as for iSkoot, it supports only free skype chat (for example over wi-fi), VoIP calls always go through providers' network so data charges will apply. I found out that on their pages. But in the end X3-02 is not supported in iSkoot also.
Do you know any other solution regarding Skype on X3-02 even if only chat is possible?

Yes, X3-02 supports SIP VoIP (voice).

 

You can either do according to below instructions (copied from earlier post in this thread),

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

Is there any service free, like skype? Those listed there cost money it's pointless to use if you do not need long distance calls.

Re: Nokia X3-02 - Fring/Skype

What cost money ? I haven't had any problems finding providers that are free to use for voip-voip calls, just like Skype.

Can you name some please? Those I did try, ask buy credit. I can't try all of them, there are too many :smileyvery-happy:

 

Example - I try with VoipBuster. I log in with my Nokia and no people see me online. And how can I see from phone who is online from my contacts? Can someone explain me how do I use this voip thing? :smileysad:
