PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless PureMobile sent us in the GSM version of the HTC Hero, one of the most popular Android-based smartphones out there. There are already a number of in-depth reviews about this phone out there (here's one), but here's my own take on what I liked, and what I disliked.

False alarm! The registration only works once every ~TEN retries. And it unregisters all by itself after a while, and then fails to re-register. I am afraid that SIPdroid just doesn't work properly on my network. I have opened the UDP/TCP ports too, just in case, but no cake. Other iPhone/PDA/PC clients on various platforms don't have a problem registering btw. So I am inclined to believe that this is a SIPdroid bug or incompatibility.

Using the SVN version of sipdroid (http://code.google.com/p/sipdroid/source/checkout) works better than the Market version.
Also if your Asterisk has "qualify=yes" in its configuration, then you probably need to apply this patch also, otherwise Asterisk will mark the phone as unreachable: http://code.google.com/p/sipdroid/issues/detail?id=109#c16

Sorry, I will certainly not pull source code off the SVN and build it, or set up an Asterisk server. If an app doesn't work the way it's supposed to, then it's just doesn't work as it's supposed to. It ends there for me.
