**updating review of v2.2.4**
New version works fine; unlike the other reviews mine doesn't crash and I didn't have to re-enter the settings. However, the interface is still amazingly ugly.
After using this for almost one week, Linphone might be the best free SIP phone out there. I'm totally happy with its performance. Thanks for making this and thanks for making it free!
No disrespect, but, I'm puzzled by the complaints. Set-up was easy and the SIP phone definitely works, no problem! The interface, however, is probably the second ugliest interface of the freebie SIP phones on the App Store. Thanks for making this free.

Updated Review for v2.2.4...
This update seems to work about as well as the previous version, which was a nice, freebie SIP phone. One thing though: the update wipes-out your existing settings on the iPad. It's not that big of a deal, just seems stoopid.
To be sure, Linphone definitely works and is much better than many of the freebies out there!
Still not answering calls in the background
Two years later it still cannot answer calls when the app in the background.
Setting Background Mode does not make any difference. It works only if the app in the foreground.
Please fix this essential feature.
