standard phone[edit]

I would like to see something about how Gizmo is a SIP using standard phone.. It is. You can call to the new SIP enabled gnomemeeting for instance from it. There has been some instructions around.. It's important with Gizmo. They provide their "Gizmo accounts" and stuff, but they do not object bypassing their stuff at all actually.

Addressed by "Since Gizmo5 is based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), it can inter-operate with other SIP-based networks directly..." --IReceivedDeathThreats (talk) 15:29, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Gizmo5 mobile[edit]

This has a different feature set; should have a section on this page. e.g. Do both the destop and mobile app support SIP (i.e. phone calls at data rates from a cellphone)? --IReceivedDeathThreats (talk) 15:29, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Iphox[edit]

Take a look at iphox.com. The site is almost an exact clone of Gizmo Project]. This leads me to believe that they're in the process of changing their name/brand (but I can't write speculation on the main article). - 20px Flag of Ontario.svg Flag of Canada.svg nathanrdotcom (TCW) 19:17, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Security Features?[edit]

Could someone please add a section briefly discussing the security of Gizmo? Are calls encrypted? What algorithms do they use? etc.

Peer-to-peer?[edit]

What is the justification for describing Gizmo Project as a "peer-to-peer VoIP network"? While the voice traffic is transmitted directly between peers, it is certainly not a pure peer-to-peer network since the SIP signaling goes through a central server at company's premises. Unless there are objections, I feel inclined to change the article to reflect this.--Teemuk 07:06, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

I agree that Gizmo is not a pure peer to peer, those are quite rare. Skype is called p2p, but it still needs central servers to work. I don't know if a totally decentralized communications program exists (yet). It isn't a pure client/server model either like Festoon, where all the traffic flows through a central server.

Spin offs[edit]

Does anyone know anything about the spin off www.gizmocall.com and gizmosms.com and any details about them? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 84.92.246.41 (talkcontribs) 19:20, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Here are the initial press releases announcing Gizmo Call[1] and Gizmo SMS[2]. I'm sure someone will do some more research on it. Dancter 19:28, 15 March 2007 (UTC)


Trouble with Call-in/Virtual Numbers?[edit]

Does anybody have articles featuring Gizmo's virtual numbers and customer service at hand? Re: Gizmo Project Bug Reports [[3]]
