What do I need to use IdeaSIP?

  1. Either a hardware or software SIP-compatible phone, or a SIP adapter for your regular telephone (also called an ATA).
  2. A broadband connection to the internet*
  3. In order to make free SIP to SIP calls, you also need the person you're calling to be using the service as well**

* Dialup connections can work under certain circumstances, but they're less reliable and require a more complex setup.
** As long as the party you're calling is using our service, or is using a service with whom we peer, you will be able to make free calls.

What are the differences between IdeaSIP and normal telephone service?

IdeaSIP is far more than a phone service. It's a communications service using the SIP protocol. This means you can use IdeaSIP for phone calls, video calls, conferencing, and even IM, staying in touch with your friends whenever and wherever you can get to the service. IdeaSIP uses an Internet connection instead of regular phone lines, and there are some differences between using IdeaSIP to communicate and using a phone to make calls.
