I just wanted to thank everyone for their hard work. After being nagged to get a home line (my house is the only black hole on the block), I decided to get a CallCentric account. From my limited testing, I can call and receive just fine. Registration works well too, with occasional errors or dropping (most likely due to my router, as my fiance's N8 experiences similar issues).
A few suggestions:
-As others have requested, functionality similar to the native phone app. I would love to be able to call via Just Type and receive calls without having the app open.
-Further to the above point, an option to allow registration for both cell and wifi connections or wifi only. For people like me, with 200 MB data plans, I'll probably need to declare bankruptcy if the app registers on the cell network and I receive a call. Also, maybe allow for registration for a specific WiFi network? Luckily thanks to Mode Switcher, I can get this functionality by setting up a mode but it would be nice to have this built into a future release.
-When there's a registration failure, have it notify the user that it failed and have the app retry to register. I noticed this morning that the app said registration failed and I had to manually reset the service (soft was sufficient). If this is to be a reliable VoIP app, it needs to be reliable/self-sufficient or at least notify the user when errors occur. I understand that it's alpha now, but would like some kind of error handling baked in later on.
I haven't checked voice quality yet (no one wanted to pick-up their phone), so I can't comment on that. Other than that, it is wonderful to have VoIP functioning on my Pre3. Also, what's keeping this from being a beta? Has any further development been done?
