 Acrobits offers Apple iOS users the option of Push Notifications instead of Backgrounding. Using PUSH Notifications may extend your iPhone or iPad's battery life, but isn't supported by sipgate. 


 Acrobits supports using different codecs for WiFi and for 3G/4G connections. We recommend using lower bandwidth codecs with 3G/4G connections:

Supported Audio Codecs and Nominal Bandwidth

GPRS and EDGE connections may allow Acrobits to register, but won't support VoIP calling.
