I still don't get your point. Thanks for being patient !!
I mean I think I understand your point but I feel that we're both right. Yes you can use other registars, but when your registar is down, you lose part of your service.
SIP still need you to log in to a registar server. http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/SIP+registrar+server
It is inter operable but within one service provider, you still have to register. As I initially said one must do it with ekiga and openwengo (2 different SIP providers).
So now you tell me, if this service is dead, you can register somewhere else. Yes, but how usable that is ? E.g. I have a Sipura SIP phone at home.
If the registar service (telio) dies,
1- I have to use a browser to change the config and point to a different SIP server (e.g. to ekiga registar)
2- if I change SIP server, I will still be able to call other parties, but
* I may need to pay some new fees that my current SIP service will already have covered in my agreement
* furthermore, people won't be able to call me to my land phone number (because my SIP provider provides me a bridge land phone-SIP).
* people won't be able to call me on my usual SIP address
So yes I can call, but I loose some features.
It looks to me to be the same as with Skype.
So I wonder again. Am I missing something ?
