    "Pretty good Sip phone"

    July 22, 2010  |   By keisashankara

    Version: X-Lite 3

    Pros

    Better then Zoiper on call quality. Good feature set and good functionality. I am able to fine tune it fairly well and it has been the easiest to register with my Asterisk server

    Cons

    There is some clicking on the line when a call is connected for a very long time. I do not know if there is a solution out there.

    Summary

    I put down 5 stars, really it is worth 4. the 2.5 rating above is totally unjustified. This is a good Voip Phone.

    "Terrible in every way."

    December 7, 2009  |   By rpcutts

    Version: X-Lite 3

    Pros

    You can make and receive SIP calls.

    Cons

    Hideous looking non-standard interface.
    Terrible phonebook.
    Could figure out how to call a phonebook entry, I'm sure you can but the interface couldn't be less obvious if it tried.
    Very poor call quality.

    Summary

    Avoid if possible.
    Has no redeeming qualities.

    "Very good free voip software"

    August 5, 2009  |   By sigmasas

    Version: X-Lite 3

    Pros

    A very good voip software fully functional. I've tried it in Windows and Mac, both work perfectly.

    Cons

    I personally don't like the look of X-Lite and I cannot find a way to change it.

    Summary

    Perfect choise

    "Spyware Activity with this application"

    May 27, 2009  |   By Ferdowsi935

    Version: X-Lite 3

    Pros

    Nice feature set.

    Cons

    Protocol Analyzer shows the first 166 frames are DNS, TCP, HTTP then SSL to/from non-SIP related hosts. This before the DNS query and SIP REGISTER. Who knows what's in the SSL tunnel. Counterpath support said there is no malware. Beware.

    "Hey, it works... that's what I needed"

    April 13, 2009  |   By angelady3

    Version: X-Lite 3

    Pros

    It works and has some cool features. I enjoyed pretty much everything about it, especially that it was free.

    Cons

    The only problem was occasionally the sound got a tiny bit choppy sounding, but hardly noticeable. The quality was usually very impressive.

    Summary

    You can't beat this for free!

    "Looks good, but ..."

    March 7, 2009  |   By Carsto

    Version: X-Lite 3

    Pros

    Vid capability. Nice face.

    Cons

    No auto-sync Outlook contacts (ex Moto Razr V3 P'book). Has issues about accounts not set up. Jabber works like a Telephone - just right. ISP suggested this to solve reception problems. Download that again No help file at fingertips.

    Summary

    The interface is not intuitive. Key features are not available on the face of it. Digging for stuff knocks this one out.

    "Transfer & Conference features are not stable"

    February 26, 2009  |   By sivapr

    Version: X-Lite 3

    Pros

    Video conference, contact info and call list are very nice features.

    Cons

    Conference option is disconnecting one call very quickly (less than one minute). Transfer option is not available on X-Lite 3 and suggesting to upgrade to 1.5..;)
    Does any one face these issues?

    Summary

    With out Video Con Avaya S/W is looking very stable.

    "It has not worked at all in 2 weeks"

    February 2, 2009  |   By mumsey44

    Version: X-Lite 3

    Pros

    It is free. I d/n have $15,000.00 for a land line.

    Cons

    Neither my local guy, nor the folks at Starband can make it work.

    Summary

    It is a great idea, since I only have satellite internet available. No electricity, just a generator. When they first had me download the x-lite, it worked great. Now something, I d/n know what, has happened and it has not worked in 2 weeks or more. No one seems to know what to do to fix it. I can call through MSN and yahoo most of the time. I just liked the idea of having a phone number. When it was working, it was better than the Goldstream equipment that Starband installed. Starband told me I had to sign up for 2 years and pay the top fee to get the best phone service. Well, crapola, good service has not happened. Not even with x-lite. I really wanted the x-lite to work for me. I would pay a monthly charge if it worked properly. But, since the technician that I contact can't fix the phone, I don't have much faith in another service like this one.
