So just the other day I installed Fring on my Nokia E-72 and it worked like a charm
than I wanted to have a go with Skype and installed the newly released Skype for Symbian 1.0, Sykpe also worked out of the box
but guess what, after installing Skype Fring stopped working, it was working for chat etc and application was running allowing me log in but there was no audio when I made calls

I removed and reinstalled Fring and again Fring Started working, but now Skype got corrupt and reached same situation as was Fring, Skype was connecting to the Skype network but was unable to make calls and there was no voice.

So it turned out that there is a component VoIPSrv which both Skype and Fring Use and it is also installed at the time of installation of Skype or Fring
Skype uses the older version of component i.e. VoIPsrv 1.0 while Fring Uses the new VoIPSrv 2.0, now only one version of this component can be installed on the phone at one time as both Fring and Skype require different versions so one of them won’t work
either you can have Skype or Fring.
I decided to stick with Fring as it does allow you to have the Skpye conversations so there is no special need of having a dedicated Skype Client Software on Nokia Sybmian Phones

After I was able to register my VoIP Number on Nokia E-72 I was faced with another daunting task

The VoIP Service won’t disconnect!!! I was not able to de-register, delete, change or edit my SIP/VoIP Profile. whatever if tired to do I kept getting the message that “Unable to edit. Profile currently in use” and there was no option of disconnecting over all the VoIP and SIP setting Menus

You might have a DSL modem and router and wireless access point integrated as one single unit.
This ADSL wireless router is meant connect to the internet via DSL and at the same time provides you wireless connectivity. If you don’t want to use your DSL connection but have some other means of connecting to the internet like Cable or WiMax than the situation can become a bit tricky and these devices might not always work.
Anyway here is the procedure which can be used to connect a TP Link Wireless ADSL2+ Route TD-W8910G to a external WAN.

WARNING
If you just purchased your Nokia E-72 and are trying to use its in built VoIP application and from Control Panel > Settings > Connections > SIP settings
Than rest assured that it won’t Work

To get VoIP working You need to download and install SIP VoIP Settings Application from Nokia Website .
This application can be downloaded from http://www.forum.nokia.com/Tools_Docs_and_Code/Tools/Plug-ins/Enablers/SIP_VoIP_Settings_application.xhtml And you will have to register prior to downloading, to save you from this trouble I have also attached a copy of this application at the end of this post

I was really amazed, shocked and angry when I found out that E-72 does not come with an out of the box VoIP client, after all E-72 is the Nokia’s Flag ship mobile for Business Customers and VoIP is a very basic requirement of such phones.

Nokia really made it really confusing, if the built-in SIP Profile application does not work than why did they include it in Phone, so that everyone’s wastes an hours trying to get their VoIP Numbers registered ?

Please note the 3.1 version is for Symbian devices (S60 5.x) touch screen mobiles and does not work with E-72, I have tested version 3.x which is for S60 3rd edition phones and it is working fine as E-72 which is also carries the Symbian 3rd Edition OS.

After installation you will need to go to Control Panel > Net Settings > Advanced VOIP Settings to configure the VoIP (Note these setting will only appear AFTER you install the VoIP Settings Application 3.x)

Following is the link to directly download SIP VoIP settings App

To utilize Voice over IP (VoIP), you need a high speed Internet connection and an analog telephone adapter (ATA). The ATA is the device that allows you to connect your regular telephone to the Internet. You can purchase these from a retailer or use the one provided by the VoIP provider when you sign up for their plan.

The ATA connects to the broadband Internet jack in your house. Since you likely won’t have many broadband outlets in your home, you’ll likely want to use a multiple handset cordless telephone to conveniently use your VoIP service throughout the house.

There is only one potential downside of a VoIP service compared to traditional dial up services. The VoIP services requires both power and the availability of a high speed Internet connection to operate. If either of these are down, the VoIP service will be unavailable, a limitation not faced by traditional dial up services. On the other hand, most people have a cell phone they can use as a backup so even a power or Internet connection outage wouldn’t be a problem.
