    Just read this article about Mino offering VOIP for cell phones.
    Anyone know if our Treos are capable of this?

    Doesn't look MobiVoIP works too well on the Treo from the posts I read over there.

    Does anyone know if there is any better luck with Mino on the Treo?

    For the curious, here's the site for Mino: http://www.minowireless.com/mino/supportone.wow

    Mark, If you are looking for VoIP app on your regular GPRS connection, you will be out of luck as GPRS does not always have the necessary QoS required for VoIP. EVDO might help!

    However if you are looking to connect via WiFi or BT, mobiVoIP gets you business quality.

    Skype has just introduced a method for the PalmOS...
    Haven't heard how well it works over 1xrtt or GSM.
    It does require that you have a base skype installation on a PC on the internet that is on all the time, as that pc will take care of the call routing from your PC to & from your Palm.

    I think you're talking about EQO:

    I've started to develop another alternative based around Salling Clicker, but haven't gotten very far yet:

    EQO only works via SkypeOUT which IMO defeats the whole purpose of free VoIP in the first place!!

    I want to know if MobVoiP only works via treo to treo only or is there also a desktop client from which you can make Treo to pc and vice versa calls? If no, then I don't like that solution either! What I want is a client from a major VoIP providers like skype, msn, YIM, Google, Vonage etc to support native PalmOS. Or I interoperability via MobiVoIP which would be just as good. (However since Skype does not use standard SIP due to P2P tech) what probably isn't possible)....

    I slightly disagree. For example, while at home in the US I'd like to be able to place a call overseas. If I do this using my cell minutes, what'll Sprint charge me? $2/minute? True, I could whip out a calling card, which would be a simple, non-technical solution ...

    OTOH, using an EQO-like mechanism I could place a call to a Skype correspondant overseas for 2.1 cents per minute (US Skypeout fee). Or I could call them on a landline (say, if they're in the UK) for a net of 4.2 cents per minute.

    I don't like all the network plumbing required by the EQO solution, or my dependency on their network to hold it all together, which is a large part of the reason for my Salling Clicker efforts. Other reasons include the fact that my code will be open, so [while Clicker itself is commercial] I or anyone else can add functionality.


    But yes, a true Skype for Palm would be much better. The idea of needing to subscribe to yet another VOIP network (for MobiVoIP or Mino ... or even a big name like Yahoo or Vonage) isn't very appealing to me either.
