Nintendo DS hack for SIP VoIP service via WiFi

Friday, September 14, 2007

SvSIPThis January, I began a list of VoIP services for the Nintendo DS, which we know contains a WiFi connection and a microphone headset.

At that time, none of the solutions included support for the popular open SIP protocol. Now, a French developer has released an early version of SvSIP, which lets you make phone calls using your homebrew-enabled DS and a SIP provider. He seems to be actively updating it, and we should see some new versions available soon on his website.

To complete the list, another French developer has been working on DSiP, a rival alpha VoIP client for the DS. The author seems to no longer have time to work on it, but promises to release a working version.

UPDATE 9/19/07: Watch the how-to video if you'd like to see SvSIP in action, courtesy of, the stack upon which SvSIP was ported from:

is there a limit to how much you can call?

Ive seen some voip that offer "free" service- but only for 60 minutes or whatever offer they have going.. which isn't cool at all.

so.. the real question is... is it FREE-FREE (Provided you have a ds, memory cart, and a wifi connection)

Well accourding to my email that I got from Voipbuster, it is free for a minute long call anything else you'll need to buy credits for. While I think it is a good thing, I do need more than a minute lol. Then again I don't think there will ever be a truly Free service even for Voip. I mean they need to make money somehow otherwise they can't provide the service to you.

Cool. I love hacks like this to get voip running on more equipment.

I don't think that my kids are going to let me hack their DS.

I've worked it all out fine and nothing will receive a call from the DS. If I give you the info it's giving back to me, can you help?
