Nokia E65 VOIP

I’ve bought a Nokia E65 because I wanted a navigation system (I spend 30 minutes looking for directions in Hilversum, after I found the correct one-way road..) and a TomTom on a phone seemed the best idea. I was up for a phone-subscription renewal anyways and thought that buying a TomTom capable phone would be the cheapest solution. This was not true in the end, but well… I’m happy anyways. The TomTom works and the phone, even though it’s a Nokia, is a nice one.

One of the nice features of this phone is that it’s able to use my XS4ALL VOIP account when I’m connected to a WLAN. This is quite useful, for example for free calls from the wife at home, and being able to be reachable on a dutch number even when I’m in, for example, Germany.

But it has one problem. I’ve selected Internet calling as default and when there is no WLAN in reach, it gives me an annoying message about making a mobile call, but only when I’m voice dialing. And well, I do voice dialing in the car, so I don’t want to have to answer yes every time…

I tried to disable that message with the setting “Internet call alert”, but that has as result that I could not be called on my Internet number. If someone called me, it only said: 1 missed call. Which is quite annoying, if you don’t know what causes it.
Just had to get that off my chest :-)
