Review from Kenny Raaymaakers
Worked once, clear sound and no interference like I get on my home phone, closed out and reopened and hasn't worked again. So one star.
This app is bugzilla galore. Just had an incoming call that wasn't answered. After the normal house phone stopped,this poc just kept ringing and would not have stopped without intervention. Other times it won't ring at all so you can miss calls. Pixel XL, Android 7.2.2, Telstra Frontier Gateway. Occasionally still says "no compatible gateway" and that was after the update to fix wifi band steering with the Frontier Gateway.
This app did work on my Samsung Tab S2 for about a week. Then it stopped reacting to incoming calls unless the App was on. Then it wouldn't allow me to use it for outgoing calls. I contacted Telstra but they were no help whatsoever. They didn't seem to know what the app was. They thought it was a handset and wanted to know its serial number. In the end they transferred me to another department that dealt with mobile phones. I gave up exasperated. Decided it might be worthwhile to reinstall the app. Uninstalledo it then went to the app store to reinstall but it indicated that app was already installed which it wasn't. Now can't reinstall it but I guess that has saved me a lot of angst. For an app that promises so much it is a pity that it is such failure.
More bugs than the Bugs Life movie. Won't answer half the time and when it does you can't hang up. Doesn't ring when calls come in unless you're stupid enough to try answering it, then you can't stop it ringing! This is all of course if you can get it to connect to the gateway properly. I ran the setup three times and it kept saying it wasn't connected to a compatible gateway. Then the next day decided it was. Telstra, surprisingly, were absolutely useless with support. DELETE QUICKLY.
Doesn't work anymore. Fir the last week I have had to reset it everytime i wanted to use it. now it is saying calling disabled...not connected to compatible gateway. Uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Same problem. Over it! I have no mobile reception at home. Now have no phone through internet. Great!
Decent app does as described and easily installed and connected up to the local VOIP even through my secondary router. My only issue with the app is that it begins every call in speaker mode and there seems to be no way to disable this. Please fix.
When I tap the number pad button during a call, it only shows me 2 quarters of the numbers! I can't press #, * or 0 It's a little useless...
