The Zoiper app is a softphone that you can use in your Android mobile phone or device to connect to your myPBX phone extension.
Warning regarding using your phone extension on a mobile device
We strongly suggest that you use your phone extension on a mobile device only in special cases and not on a daily basis since there are several drawbacks to consider:
- If you don’t open the App, you won’t get any calls
- If you block your mobile device like you normally do when you’re not using it, you’ll lose the connection to the myPBX business phone system and won’t receive any calls.
- Calls work great on 4G connection but on most 3G connections, connection is lost frequently resulting in call drops and robotized voice. It’s always better to use it on a Wi-Fi network.
- Zoiper and other Softphone applications consume lots of battery since they require a permanent connection to the server.
