Windows Mobile 6 and SIP Settings for Asterisk

Digg This

New to the Windows Mobile 6, there is a SIP client built-in. It is tricky to set it up, but here goes the details:

1. You'll need a copy of cabarc.exe, grab it at

2. Create your SIP config file, name it as _setup.xml

A sample config is below:

<characteristic type="VoIP">
<parm name="SIPSettings"
value="<provision key='1032ab01' name='ProviderName'>
<provider name='ProviderName' />
<user account='username' password='password'
<sipsrv addr='your_sip_server:5060' protocol='UDP' role='proxy'>
<session party='First' type='pc2pc' />
<session party='First' type='pc2ph' />
<sipsrv addr='your_sip_server:5060' protocol='UDP' role='registrar'/>
</provision>" />

3. From command line, go to folder where cabarc is located, copy the _setup.xml there, run

cabarc N _setup.xml

4. Copy the to your device and run it.

5. If you want to enable SIP client over WWAN (such as GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA or 1XRTT/EVDO), simply go to your registry (you can use Resco Explorer or your favorite registry editor)

Go to the HKLM\Comm\RTC\AdapterTypes
Delete both the "1" and the "2" values that are here
Reset your device and Internet calling will connect over the data connection for your phone service.

That's it.

A freeware Windows Mobile 6 Voip SIP Config Loader utility has been released that allows you to automatically configure & load _setup.xml needed to configure Voip on your mobile device.
You just need to enter your SIP based VoIP provider details from the GUI of the application such as SIP Server Name, Port Number, Username and Password.

Thanks for the info. The only problem so far is that the phone works on the speaker and not on the earpeace.

Unfortunately, that's the case with many phones. You should be able to use a headset at least.
