Blackberry: FgVoIP & BlackVoib

Apart from Linphone Blackberry app, which is free, there are two other commercial VOIP applications: Blackvoib offers a 14 day trial while FgVoIP offers 10 day. We will only show the setup for FgVoIP, though the setup for BlackVoib is similar.

Designed by FG Microtec, this little-known SIP VoIP client is a feature rich soft phone for BlackBerry devices. It can register to any SIP VoIP provider or IP/SIP capable PBX using a WiFi connection in office, campus, home, hotel rooms, public hot-spots etc. They offer a 10 day free trial and there is also a User Guide (PDF).
