I've now put together a first draft of the steps that I took to register Voxalot on my BlackBerry Bold 9000 fgVoIP client. I hope it helps. Please let me know if there are any glaring errors or confusing commands:

1. Open the application
2. Press Menu, Preferences
3. Select Profiles
4. Press Menu, Copy (this will allow you to create a new profile for Voxalot)
5. Rename the new profile Voxalot
6. Press the BlackBerry back button and save the new profile
7. Select the Voxalot profile and answer No to the option "Do you want to log in to make calls?"
8. Select Setup
9. Select Main Settings and edit as follows:
My name: Anything you like
My id: Your Voxalot id
My Password: Your Voxalot password
My domain: (or regional alternative)
My Proxy IP address: THIS IS IMPORTANT - YOU MUST PUT IN THE SERVER'S IP ADDRESS. (I put in, which is the IP address for
Connection type: (I chose WiFi)
10. Press Menu, Advanced Settings and edit as follows:
Registrar port: 5060
Proxy: Use the same process as for the Proxy IP address above
Leave all the other settings at defaults
11. Press the BlackBerry back button and save the new settings
12. Answer Yes to "Do you want to logout to be allowed to change settings?"
13. Back up all the way until you reach the call screen. You should see "fgVoIP ready" at the foot of the screen. You can now call from here. Alternatively if you call from your BlackBerry dialler or address book the application will force the call over VoIP if required (see Call Handling below).

Now you can fine-tune your call settings. For instance, I don't want Voxalot to be used for national landline and mobile numbers as they are catered for in my provider's bundled minutes. (In the UK national numbers start with 01 & 02 and mobile numbers start with 07).

a. Press Menu, Preferences
b. Select Setup
c. Select Call Handling
d. Select Exclusion List
e. Press Menu, Add number

Here I added 01*(return), 02*(return), 07*. I then pressed the BlackBerry back button and saved the new settings. You can add full or partial numbers in this way. With these settings, 0800 and international numbers will be sent over Voxalot but the excluded ranges will not.
