Nokia GSM/VoIP phones

Nokia Dual-mode Installation Guide

Nokia produce a number of dual-mode GSM/Wifi phones that are compatible with the 2talk service. By using one of these phones you can make calls over the Internet through 2talk when in range of a Wireless access point and hence make huge savings on your phone bill. Buying one of these phones could pay for itself in call savings very quickly! The dual-mode GSM/VoIP phone models known to work well with 2talk include:

The instructions below were put together from a Nokia E61 but all the above phones are very similar in terms of their setup and configuration so the instructions should be relevant for all models.

Upgrade the firmware release to the latest version:


The current latest stable release for the Nokia E61 phone is:


Once you have installed the latest firmware release to your phone and you have setup all your personal
information such as date, time, contacts etc. and can successfully make GSM calls via your SIM card
then you are ready to configure your 2talk settings.

Defining an access point for your phone

Before you can setup your 2talk SIP Profile you need first to define and setup a Wifi access point.
To connect to a Wifi access point:

  1. Click on the main menu button
  2. Select ‘Connect’
  3. Select ‘Conn mgr.’
  4. Select ‘Available WLAN’
  5. You should now see a list of available WLAN connections.
  6. Select the access point you wish to use by scrolling to it and then hit the ‘Options’ button
  7. On the ‘Options’ menu. Scroll down and select ‘Define access point’ and then confirm by pressing ‘Yes’
  8. If the Wifi Access point is publically accessible then you shouldn’t need to do anything else and can exit. If your access point is protected with WEP, 802.1x or WPA/WPA2 then you will need to enter the relevant information for your access point in the settings. Available settings are:

Connection Name: This can be whatever name you wish to give the connection. e.g. Home, Office etc.
Data Bearer: This should be ‘Wireless LAN’
WLAN netw. name: This should be left as the SSID name
Network Status: Can be Public or Hidden depending on your Access point
WLAN netw. mode: Can be Infrastructure or Ad-hoc. You probably want Infrastructure.
WLAN security mode: Either Open, WEP, 802.1x or WPA/WPA2. Select the one that suits your Access point.
WLAN security settings: If not Open then here you can define keys, Authentication type, key encryption/format types and more. Refer to your Access point instructions for details
Homepage: The default homepage when connecting. You can set this as

To test that your access point is working you can go to the Main Menu and select ‘Web’:

If you wish for the phone to always prompt you for an access point, then select ‘Options’ and scroll down to ‘Settings’
and then click ‘Access point’. Here you can select ‘Always Ask’ or user defined if you wish to make your new
access point the default when connecting.

Setting up your 2talk SIP Profile

Once you are happy that you can browse the Internet via your defined access point then we are ready to setup your
2talk settings as follows:

1. Go into the main menu and select ‘Settings’
2. Scroll down and select ‘Connection’
3. Scroll down and select ‘SIP Settings’
4. Select ‘Options’, ‘Add new’ and ‘Use Default Profile’
5. Now define your SIP profile according to your 2talk settings.

As an example we assume the phone number is 028890000 and password is abc123:

Profile name: 2talk
Service profile: IETF
Default Access point: (Here select the access point name you defined earlier.)
Public user name: (Replacing 028890000 with your own phone number)
Use Compression: No
Registration: Always on
Use Security: No

Proxy server menu

Proxy server address:
Username: 028890000 (Replacing 028890000 with your own phone number)
Password: abc123 (Replacing abc123 with your own 2talk password)
Allow loose routing: Yes
Transport Type: UDP
Port: 5060

Registrar Server menu

Registrar serv. addr.:
Username: 028890000 (Replacing 028890000 with your own phone number)
Password: abc123 (Replacing abc123 with your own 2talk password)
Transport Type: UDP
Port: 5060

Now click ‘Back’ twice and your profile should appear. If your settings were correct then after a few seconds your should see the status change to ‘Registered’. To make the profile the default profile then click on ‘Options’ and select ‘Default profile’
6. Next go back to the ‘Connection’ menu and select ‘Internet tel. settings’.

7. Next go back to the ‘Connection’ menu and scroll down and select ‘Wireless LAN’

Set Show availability to ‘Yes’ and Scan for networks every minute (instead of every 5 minutes)
This will detect your Wifi and connect to 2talk more quickly when you come in range of your access point

8. Now, go back twice to the ‘Settings’ menu and select ‘Call’. In the call settings set the following:

Internet Call Waiting: Activated (unless you wish otherwise)
Default call type: Internet

9. Now select ‘Exit’ until you are back at the front screen.

Now try a test call by dialing *55. If all is well then you should connect to the 2talk Voicemail Portal.

10. Now login to 2talk live with your phone number and password at Here you can select some settings that will enhance the use of your 2talk mobile service. For example:

NOTE: If you have another access point in another location that you would also like to use to connect to 2talk then repeat the above steps to define the access point and then create a new SIP Profile except when creating the new profile you can say ‘Use an existing profile’ instead of using the default one. Then you should not need to change any of the settings apart from the ‘Profile Name’ (e.g. 2talk Office) and access point selection. Finally, select your ‘Internet tel. settings’ profile and select ‘SIP Profile’ ticking the new profile you created. You should be able to define as many access points in as many locations as you like. The only trick is to define a separate SIP Profile for each access point and to always tick on the Profile in the Internet tel. settings.

You are now ready to start making calls from your Nokia phone via the Internet through 2talk and make huge savings on your calls when in range of a wireless network! You should also try dialing your 2talk number from a landline or another phone to ensure you can also receive inbound calls as well.

You can now roam between access points at home, the office or wherever you have access to Wifi and the phone should
automatically connect to the Internet to make and receive calls with 2talk within a minute of coming in range of the
Wifi. If you leave Wifi range then you may experience a short delay when dialing, but the phone should then switch back
to ‘Cellular’ mode and place the call out the normal GSM number. Follow the instructions below for details on how
you can make all your calls via 2talk even when not in range of Wifi by using 2talk’s callback service.

Instructions on using the 2talk callback service (optional)

You can also make big savings on calls from your Nokia phone by creating a SIP Profile to the 2talk ‘callback’ service. To use the callback service create a SIP profile as detailed above, except change the following settings:

Profile name: 2talk Callback
Default Access point:
VFNZ Internet (or your 3G/GPRS connection)
Public user name: (Replacing 028890000 with your own phone number)
Registrar Server menu

Registrar serv. addr.:

You should also create a new ‘Internet tel. settings’ profile for the Callback service (do not put it under the default one with your wifi access points). In the ‘Internet tel. settings’ menu enter:

Now, login to 2talk Live and under Advanced click on the ‘Remote Call Back service’ section. Enter your GSM number on the phone as the Dual-mode phone callback number. This number will be called-back when a call is made via the callback service. When placing call to the callback service you should see a ‘Busy’ response followed by a call place back to you from your 2talk number, answer the call and you will be connected to the number you originally dialed.

NOTE: If you leave the Callback service as ‘Always On’ and connected then it will re-register with 2talk every 30 minutes. Over whole month the amount of data required to continually register via 3G/GPRS could amount to 6MB or more. Do not use the callback service if you are on a plan which charges a lot of money for data usage (such as on a prepay plan). Check the amount you will likely pay for around 6MB of data per month befor activating this service permanently.

Also, beware that when out of 3G/GPRS coverage the registration to the callback service can occasionally fail. To reconnect you can either reset the phone or go into the Callback SIP Profile, change Registration to ‘When needed’, go back and then enter the profile again and change it back to ‘Always On’. This should force a reregistration.
