Now you can enjoy crystal-clear phone calls over the Internet using the new Nokia E71 phones. If you have access to a WiFi or 3G connection, you can save money by using the Internet to connect your call instead of using your mobile phone minutes. No roaming or out-of-network fees. Make your calls from anywhere in the world to anywhere for just a few pennies a minute. Simple to configure, inexpensive to use.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN, please note the following:
On the Nokia E71 some of VoIP settings are hidden by default, and you will need Nokia's new VoIP SIP application.
This application can be used to configure VoIP settings on your Nokia. You can create new VoIP profiles and modify the existing ones, and create and modify VoIP parameters and NAT/Firewall traversal settings and that are normally not visible on the device UI, such as codec settings and SIP domain-specific NAT/FW settings. It is also possible to save all the VoIP profile settings to a text file. It also enables VoIP over WCDMA which means you can make VoIP call over 3G Internet connection.
Extract and install SIS file using Nokia PC Suite software on your PC.
Once installation is complete you will be able to see "SIP VoIP Settings" application under Applications menu on your Nokia, which you will need in STEP 5 of this configuration guide for better voice quallity or enabling VoIP over 3G Internet connection.
Here you can find Nokia E71 SIP settings for voip setup and SIP client configuration guide with VoIPVoIP service.
Go to Tools / Settings / Connection / SIP settings. Create the following profile
Profile Name: VoIPVoIP Service
Profile: IETF Default
Access point: (your WLAN AP name)

For better voice quality or in order to be able to make VoIP calls over 3G internet connection you need to use Nokia SIP VoIP Application you installed.
Go to Applications on your phone and click on "SIP VoIP Settings" application. Choose VoIP services/VoIPVoIP (or the name of your VoIPVoIP account Internet profile.)
Click on "Profile Settings" and find "Allow VoIP over WCDMA" option and change it to "ON" This change allows VoIP over 3G connection on Nokia phones.
For better voice quality go to Codecs and delete all codecs except G729. There should be only G729 codec left under codecs setting
Reboot your phone. Once your phone is back on it will automatically register to VoIPVoIP.
Once it is registered you can start making calls.
