According to a post in a thread available in symbianfreak.com's forum, VoIP is available on E52, as you can install a third party VoIP provider's software to the phone and receive calls, however you cannot call someone. Is that true?? It sounded weird to me. Perhaps it could be a firmware issue which would be fixed, I suppose, eventually. Or may be there is a problem with the third party VoIP provider's software. Although the owner of the post did not disclose the name of the provider, it sounded a bit weird to me that a VoIP software compatible with E52 is currently available by a VoIP provider. For instance my VoIP provider, truphone, does not at least for the time being provide support to E52. This niether has suprised me, because as I said the phone has been very recently released, nor concerns me, because I know that truphone will eventually provide support for E52. The post reads as follows: "I got my e52, not happy! nokia has removed the internet call feature! i can register to my voip provider, i can receive voip calls (by this i mean i click on test call on my voip provider's website, they call me and i receive the call), but i can't make outward calls" It is available in the below link: http://www.symbian-freak.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=504952 Can someone who owns E52 give feedback regarding E52's VoIP capabilities? Although truphone's website does not currently provide support for E52, I will really appreciate if you can try to install lastest truphone software to your E52 and try making an internet call. In fact, any feedback stating that you can initate internet calls with E52 regardless of whichever provider would be sufficient. PS. As far as I understand, the owner of the post of can make internet calls via Wi-Fi but not via 3G. So I will appreciate if you can give feedback regarding E52's VoIP capabilities through (i) Wi-Fi; and (ii) 3G networks.
