Configuring iSip (Connects Apple iPhone) for 3CX Phone System
IMPORTANT This guide has been tested with the following firmware versions:
Apple iPhone 2G version 2.2
iSip (formerly SipPhone on iPhone) version 2.0.3
Be aware that different firmware revisions may have different web interface formats and functionality.
iSip (formerly SipPhone on iPhone) is a native SIP/VOIP application for the iPhone. It is available from the iTunes App Store for a small fee (5 euros / 6USD). With iSip (formerly SipPhone on iPhone), the SIP connection is made directly to 3CX, so no ‘middle-man’ such as Fring is involved. This makes the call quality excellent.
This guide shows you how to setup the Apple iPhone as an external extension. If you need to use it internally on your LAN, you must create a separate profile, switch off STUN and adjust the IP/FQDN accordingly. The first SIP Account in the “Account Manager” will be always chosen for outbound calls when activated.
Due to the fact that SIP is blocked by default from the mobile providers the use of a WiFi connection is necessary.Make sure that you have an active WiFi Connection and you can access the Internet over it.
