For what it's worth, I have blueface on my nokia e51, and it works
great. When I'm out and about, I simply join an open wifi -- airports /
cafe's etc, and it always defaults to internet calls (I conf'd it that
way). I simply dial the desired number and it works. Saves a fortune
when abroad - free calls from macdonalds (in France anyway)
It sometimes disconnects the call, although I've just updated the
software and it seems to have fixed that. I've yet to fully test it, but
so far no latency or disconnections.
Note, I only connect with WiFi, and not with 3G as I'm too mean to pay
for data services on mobiles.
