fgmicrotec has become the latest company to offer an expanded VoIP client for Blackberry handsets.
The fgVOIP app for BlackBerry allows SIP-enabled VoIP calls on all Wi-Fi enabled Blackberry devices running OS 4.6 and OS 5.0, including the BlackBerry Curve 8520, 8900 & 9000 as well as the BlackBerry Bold 9700.
fgVOIP’s Click2Dial feature lets callers make VoIP calls in exactly the same way as regular GSM calls.
With Click2Dial, whenever the user makes a call using the standard BlackBerry dialler, the call is automatically routed over VoIP when in range of a Wi-Fi network – no user intervention is required.
Calls made whilst outside Wi-Fi range use the cellular network as normal.
Users can also choose to enable or disable VoIP calls for specific numbers through an exclusion list.
“You don’t have to think about how to use our new app – it just works”, said Robert Mirbaha, CEO of fg microtec. “We designed the fgVOIP app for Blackberry to be easy to use; with fgVOIP you make calls using call history, from an SMS or from an email just as you would any other call on your BlackBerry”.
fgVOIP app for BlackBerry works with hosted VoIP and PBX services enabling businesses to use their BlackBerry devices as extensions on the company PBX.
When staff are in the office calls are automatically directed through the PBX, in effect turning the BlackBerry into a desk phone that can be carried with you.
fgVOIP comes pre-configured with a SIP provider so customers can make calls straight away; fgVOIP can also be configured to work with other SIP providers such as Vonage, InPhonex, Cloudnet, sipgate and Localphone.
