    Hello there

    I want to know how can I use my DS as a Phone, OK I got some tutorials, but when I set it up, can I "steal" the Net and can I make some calls?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, first you need a program like SvSIP.

    - Find an open wireless router or a hotspot

    Other than that you would need to crack WEP security ( I don't think you'll succeed at WPA honestly ) and I think that is well beyond the scope. Basically if you cannot find a hot spot you need to go into the realm of hacking at which point you'd need a laptop which could make the calls anyway so it would be self defeating.

    I looked, albeit not to hard and theres no free VOIP providers that support SIP and such. Remember folks, it costs money calling a telephone line. The government in the US alone taxes the hell out of telephone providers.

    Well what I wanted to know if the hotspot need a special program on the PC or not, so I can use a hotspot, or a unprotected Wi-Fi Router.

    Anyways, as for the Provider, there's a free one: http://www.voipbuster.com/

    Voipbuster is only free for a few minutes. They say they give you an hour of free talk time, but they must also count the number of calls you make or something since I got shut off after several 3-minute calls.

    That said though, you can keep making new accounts with no retribution.

    I've tried using this, and I hope this keeps getting developed into something worthwhile. So far, I can seem to talk on the DS fine, but I can't seem to hear the other person's voice clearly. Just comes through as a sst-sst sound.

    Probably my distance from the Wifi Point, or it's just not that great yet, oh well.
