yes, its absolutely free as long as you dont use outgoing calls. I use that for about 10 years already and is the most reliable VoIP service we have. They also have a UK branch www.sipgate.co.uk but on the UK website i didnt found the VPN stuff.

there is no VPN mentioning on the British site

My assumption is that they preconfigure by default VPN link from customer PC to their server and their VOIP s/w uses this link only, correct?

If correct then i have a newbie question (sorry, never tried it before!) - how would i tell skype app to use VPN link rather than 3G link what is still active.
Thanks

you need to setup the VPN for all internet traffic on your phone or windows PC. you can google for instructions on how to do that (i dont know which OS you are using)... Chris

forgive my newbie-ness, but VPN from my PC to ... whom?
the sipgate does NOT (at least UK branch) provide VPN service for voip customers ...


i'll check free VPN providers mentioned in the article, or it might be much simplier to switch to alternative 3G provider whos coverage is not as good as t-mobile, however there are no voip restrictions ..

i was referring to the VPN from sipgate.de
i dont think there will be a problem signing up from them.

Otherwise you can use any free VPN service like Simply the Best Free VPN | JustFreeVPN.com


For VoIP you can use o2 or eplus (but eplus has so low data rates that you will have about the same result)...

sipgate UK and DE both run on the same servers located in Germany and seem even to share the same software platform as you cannot register to the British service using a username that has already been taken on their German service. That's why I believe should even work with a British account, despite the VPN service is undocumented for UK customers.

postpaid: O2 on Business XL; prepaid: DE: Aldi Talk, Lidl; UK: 3; BG: MTel, vivacom; RU: MTS; RS: MTS; UAE: du Tourist SIM; INT'L: toggle mobile
VoIP: sipgate.de (German DID); sipgate.co.uk (British DID); ukddi.com (British DID); sipcall.ch (Swiss DID); megafon.bg (Bulgarian DID); InterVoip.com

end of the story (2 weeks left in Germany):
kind of advise for any shot-term visitor

go to Saturn shop
get O2 modem pack comes with O2 sim card for i-net
ask them to do registration for you
buy vouchers at their cashier
top up via modem or by your phone (easier option)
plug modem
enjoy

Everything else .... will cost you some time to sort out. Do not waste your time ... pay a bit extra for the service ...

Bye all, it was my pleasure
