Bewip: sip softphone for Pocket PC/SmartPhone

BeWip devices from TechFaith, HP & HTC

I first found this softphone on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BeWip.

BeWip is a proprietary softphone which unifies VoIP (based on SIP) and Cellular communications GSM on mobile GSM/WIFI mobile phone based on the Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system like PDAs / Pocket PCs / smartphones.

I was happy to see it because I’m looking a good softphone for my SDA.

Then I checked it’s website www.bewip.com. To download the softphone, we have to subscribe, within 24 hours, we’ll receive an email with the password. Then we’ll be able to log in and get the download link.

It can be use for a lot of different brands of PPC’s and Smartphones. We need choose the phone and the service provider from the available list. I’ll be preset. We cannot set it for any sip service provider.

After we install it, we have to run a patch to activate the account. Then we’ll be able to use it.

Actually I don’t like it although it surprised me at the beginning when I first found it. Because 1. It’s free, but it’s evaluation version which will expire. 2. It’s complicated to get it run. Patch it, activate it, do some modification to registry etc. 3. It takes much space compared to some cute softphones I saw. 4. Actually, I didn’t manage to run it. I didn’t change anything to registry. After I installed and activated it, I tried to start it. Sometimes, It just didn’t start after a long time starting, sometimes, it simply gave me an error messsage.

So I don’t have any result from it. But anyway, good to know it. It may help some poeple.

Other Information

  1. I am using SDA, I actually installed skype(for ppc .cab) and ESCSoftPhone_Demo(IAX). I can install speaQ softphone, but there’s no touch screen with SDA, I can’t switch between the tabs or dial numbers. So I can’t use it. I can install amsip-ppc, but it takes .NET. So I give it up. I can’t install any other softphones, like any version of SJPhone or Xlite/Xten. I use Jeyo Mobile Companion 1.1 from PC to backup and restore contacts or other pim from another SIM card.

    1) go to sjlabs.com and download the PC version
    2) Edit the SIP PC to PC profile and put in your account details for your sip provider.
    3) Make a test call – YES from your PC, to be 100% sure you settings are correct
    4) Extract the files in the zip to your phone. You should have the exe, dll and skin file in any directory you want to put it in, and the profiles (.ini files) in sub directory Profiles. For example:
    Storage CardSjPhoneDefault.skn
    Storage CardSjPhoneSJphone.exe
    Storage CardSjPhoneSJphoneSetup.dll

    Storage CardSjPhoneProfilesH.323 direct.ini
    Storage CardSjPhoneProfilesSIP direct.ini

    NOTE to mods: The cab file is freely available at http://www.sjlabs.com/preview/ce/ (a link from their download page). I’ve extracted the files from it using WinCE manager and put them here. If thats not ok, then just delete the atachment and everyone can just do that step themselves!

    5) copy the .ini file from your PC (c:program filessjlabssjphoneprofiles i think) to the profiles directory on your phone.
    6) launch sjphone on your phone
    7) Hit left soft key and scroll to services. Select PC to PC (sip).

    You may have to hit the left soft key and shutdown, then restart sjphone
    Once its started, you can scroll to the dial box, and dial the number (hold * to change to numbers first), then scroll down to dial. Unfortunately you can’t delete a digit you enter so its tricky!

    Here’s an export of the reg keys from the cab file:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINECommAfd]
    “DgramBuffer”=dword:00000008

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftShellURLProtocolscallto]
    @=””

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTcalltoDefaultIcon]
    @=hex(7):25,49,6e,73,74,61,6c,6c,44,69,72,25,5c,53,4a,70,68,6f,6e,65,2e,65,78,
    65,2c,31,00,00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTcallto]
    “URL Protocol”=””

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTcalltoShellopencommand]
    @=”%InstallDir%\SJphone.exe /callto %1″

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareSJLabsSJvoip ProjectSJphone]
    “App”=”%InstallDir%\SJphone.exe”

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSJLabsSJvoip ProjectSJphone]
    “key1″=”GQVV0-3OUI3-APJB4-TKEJ1-A1EGG”
    “key2″=”GQVV0-3OUI3-APJB4-TKEJ1-A1EGG”

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSJLabsSJvoip ProjectSJphoneOptionsGeneral]
    “AddressBook”=”\%CE5%\SJphone.xml”

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSJLabsSJvoip ProjectSJphoneOptionsCall Logs]
    “CallLogFileName”=”\%CE5%\SJphone.clm”

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSJLabsSJvoip ProjectSJphoneOptionsSkin]
    “SkinDllFileName”=”%InstallDir%\Default.skn”
    “UseSkin”=dword:00000001

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSJLabsSJvoip ProjectSJphoneOptionsProfiles]
    “ProfilesDir”=”%InstallDir%\Profiles”
    “PersonalDataDir”=”%InstallDir%\Profiles”
    “ActiveProfile”=”C0DFB9E1-79A0-4749-844F-18EC3DE3629D”

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSJLabsSJvoip ProjectSJphoneOptionsRTP]
    “RTPService”=dword:00000032

    You don’t need ANY of them to get it to work, but you may want to try to get the skin working by adding this one:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSJLabsSJvoip ProjectSJphoneOptionsSkin]
    “SkinDllFileName”=”%InstallDir%\Default.skn”
    “UseSkin”=dword:00000001

    Of course replace %InstallDir% with where you install sjphone

    Oh and here’s a list of the identifiers in case you’re wondering what they mean:

    CE1 Program Files
    CE2 Windows
    CE4 Windows Startup
    CE5 My Documents
    CE11 WindowsStart MenuPrograms
    CE12 WindowsStart MenuProgramsAccessories
    CE14 WindowsStart MenuProgramsGames
    CE15 WindowsFonts
    CE17 WindowsStart Menu

Google Maps with My Location (beta)

See your location on the map, with or without GPS. Save time and tedious keystrokes finding where you are, what's around you, and how to get there. Watch the video on the right to see how it works.

Press “0″ and look for the blue dot: or

If you have a GPS-enabled device, this blue dot corresponds to your GPS location. At times, or if you do not have a GPS-enabled phone, you might see the blue dot surrounded by a light blue circle (as shown on the right) to indicate uncertainty about your location.

Why the uncertainty? The My Location feature takes information broadcast from mobile towers near you to approximate your current location on the map – it's not GPS, but it comes pretty close (approximately 1000m close, on average). We're still in beta, but we're excited to launch this feature and are constantly working to improve our coverage and accuracy.

The My Location feature is available for most web-enabled mobile phones, including Java, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Nokia/Symbian devices.

Get more info on the My Location feature and supported devices, or discuss Google Maps and My Location with other users.
