* Pictures and file sharing
* Linphone accounts reachable at any time, even if the app is closed (thanks to push notifications)
* Smart contact list to know whom among your friend is reachable thanks to Linphone

Ratings and Reviews
Best of the free SIP phone apps
There is plenty to love and hate about this app, but the fact is this app has been the most reliable and regularly updated iOS SIP phones I have found. Thanks Linphone!!!
Correction: Bluetooth issue was in iOS not this app.
Hope SIP will running in the background again. This is the only part I don’t like about the app, otherwise this app is perfect!!n
Crashes during SIP configuration
Crashes every time when attempting SIP sever configuration.
We are aware of this issue. We are preparing a new release with the fix.
