Now I know that no offical whistle phone client is officially aviable for android, but i am running android 2.3 gingerbread and i would like to use whistle phone by utilizing the built in VOIP options. I have tried using this guide: http://truvoipbuzz.com/2010/06/use-whistle-phone-any-sip-device-mak... but i keep getting the error "Account registration failed; will try again later". help?

    Austin,

    I'm sorry, but we don't support the use of Whistle with third party services like this. If you choose to do so, I wish you the best of luck, but I'm afraid you're on your own.

    I am just curious why you don't develop your app for Android as well. Seeing as 40% of the smartphone market now uses it I don't think it's that much to assume there is a market for it....

    We definitely working toward addressing an Android solution, but we don't have a release date in the books yet.

    Thanks for checking in. We appreciate it.

    Juan,

    No, I'm not aware of any plans like that at this time. We're focusing on making Whistle as strong as possible on its current platforms before expanding to any others. However, thanks for your interest in the service!

    No, no estoy al tanto de ningún plan como que en este momento. Nos estamos centrando en hacer silbido tan fuerte como sea posible en sus plataformas actuales antes de expandirse a los demás. Sin embargo, gracias por su interés en el servicio!

    For now, we're focusing on making Whistle as strong as possible on its current platforms. We're aware of the interest in Android, but we don't have any solid plans in that direction at this time. I hope that helps.

    Seriously guys.

    Juan and Ron are correct. Get your stories straight. If you really don't plan an Android alternative there is no reason to jerk us around. Just tell us. We are all adults here. We can take it. ;)

    All,

    I apologize for any confusion, but there is no contradiction. We are aware of the interest in Android, and we are definitely looking at possible Android options for the future. However, we do not currently have any solid, set-in-stone plans or information about a possible future release. Please note that Jon said "working toward addressing," not "actively working on" or anything like that. Again, I'm sorry if anything we've said was misleading, and I hope that clears it up.

    Pido disculpas por cualquier confusión, pero no hay ninguna contradicción. Somos conscientes del interés en Android, y definitivamente estamos mirando las posibles opciones para el futuro. Sin embargo, actualmente no tienes ningún sólido información, o establecido en los planes de piedra acerca de una futura versión posible. Por favor, tenga en cuenta que Jon dijo "trabajando hacia la solución," no "trabajando activamente en la solución" o qualquier por el estilo. Una vez más, pido disculpas si he dicho algo que inducía a error, y espero que lo aclara.
