I called & talked for 2-3 minutes but I charged me more then 2cent per minutes
Ok, so bad news and good news.
The bad news is our rates arent cheap in every country, there are surcharges across some borders due to agreements between different phone companies (IE minimum surcharges per minute).
The good news is our rates are still cheap in 50 countries.
So lots of changes need to be made to still create a Phone company for BBP without too much red tape.

First change is I published a rate sheet (once you all upgrade your unchained node again, click Unchained), see the "Phone" | Rates menu.  This breaks down our charge per minute per country.  To understand this, if the phone country code + prefix you are dialing matches exactly, its that rate, but if not, there will be an entry for the Country code and its that instead (IE it falls back).  So take the US for example, there are only 3 possibilities:  If you dial 1-888 (see the 1888 prefix?), its the .032 per min rate, but otoh, if you dial 1-972-123-4567, it will be the .017 rate.  So we have  very good rate across the whole US.  (And a pretty good rate in many other countries also).  China is not on the list because they are .07 cent per minute, but we have a way for users to go around that problem below.

Another change I made is if you attempt to call a country that is > .05 cent per minute, our robotic voice will jump on the line and tell you how much it costs and not allow the call to go through unless you put in a BBP exception (we will have an override page soon).

So now its a lot safer to use as all of our rates are below .05 cent per minute. 

Moving on to the Charges page, I made it perform billing once every 12 minutes, and it now shows you the duration of each call.  The charges should now be accurate (according to our price list) going forward; just ignore the ones we did the other day as they had a slight network inaccuracy in them (fixed).

One more change that I made is the BBP network now keeps track of what the user owes outstanding and if a person runs up a bill causing them to go negative, the robotic voice will jump on and tell them to top up their balance and prevent them from making more calls.
You will also see an error message on the screen.

This is really cool for our hardware phone (as I use one now from BBP) and this way you dont need to be on the BBP wallet to hear that your balance is zero, it also works on the hardware to hardware phone.

My goal is to stop adding features and release this in the next couple days so we can have v1.0 out there as we need to get the sancs upgraded and the exchanges so they can start Sanc mining and work out the "investor sancs" that will replace Portfolio Builder.

I sent 150K to your BBP phone address for extra testing funds.

TESTING PROGRESS FOR BIBLEPAY PHONE AND TESTNET IN GENERAL



Great news:  All of the core wallet test cases from last month passed in testnet, clearing the way for our June release to be release some time this month.
Our phone system has a couple glitches but no show stoppers.  My plan is to have these bugs fixed this weekend, and schedule a release.

If all goes well, we should theoretically have a BBP mandatory upgrade on June 18th, 2023.

Fantastic work my friend. Cant wait for the new features.

Thanks for being here Prof Budinga.  Its always nice to have loyal support for biblepay that actually cares.

Btw, Budinga and I have discovered HOTMAIL blocks the biblepay forum emails.  That explains the user a few pages back that was not receiving our FORUM Emails.  All other domains, to my knowledge, are getting through From the Forum.


I also Tested hotmail, I created a hotmail account and sure enough if I send myself an email from my biblepay address, it does not go through.

So my suggestion is Anyone using hotmail here, please change your email address to something else, anything but Hotmail.


I opened a ticket with Hotmail yesterday asking them to fix it and they autoreplied: DENIED without a real reason.  Ill try again another way asap.

Yeah, I got a couple suggestions to expose "Duration" on the charges page, and also a suggestion to make it bill faster (not be so delayed).
So I will take a look at this today and once that duration is available we will easily be able to see if you actually got overcharged, or what the real problem is.

Checking...

The good news is there are only a couple test cases left to pass, so it looks like we are ready to start preparing a release this weekend (as we need to give about a 20 day notice to everyone).

The phone actually works in Linux, so that makes me very happy.  It theoretically also works in MACOSX, as it compiles, but I havent actually made a call in mac yet.

it's finally working gonna make the promo now.. thanks...

also is there any possibility of this feature coming in the android os?
Well not to sugar coat it, yes and no.  The no is while we have just one developer, we dont have the resources to code it (as I have a list about 50 cool things that we should do already) however on the other hand, the localhost:8080 code that the phone runs does work in apple and android (but the core wallet code does not).

So what might be possible in the future is we could make an android/ios wrapper app for unchained and put an app in the android store, probably take about 200 hours of work.

Good morning.

 I have this issius with the test wallet,i have to reinstall evry time i turn it on.

 Mvh. Akkin4.
Please clarify what you mean:  you have to reinstall the MSI, the biblepaycore-qt exe, or does the web site "upgrade" and paste detailed information step by step of what leads to the problem?
Also be sure you install it by saving it to your machine the first time locally and installing it as admin, verify it installs in the place you chose like c:\program files\biblepaydev by going to command prompt and checking to make sure windows didnt shadow it as a non admin user.

Ok v5.55 is out, so heres how easy it should be to upgrade (you dont even have to close the core wallet if its running).
Just click on Unchained from the left menu and it should automatically upgrade and you should see 5.55 on the main home page.

When you launch Phone, you should see v1.2.
Now you can dial up to 17 digits.

Ok, I did some testing and we can definitely call any number globally (I called a Poland number by using 44) and I just called a Europe number.

Heres a good test number to call Europe:


Numbers for Testing

VoIP University
https://voipdocs.io articles 245-numbers-for-testing



NOTE:
To dial another country with the BBP phone, start with the country code then dial the phone number (do not dial the "011" prefix as you would at home):


Dial 44 207 499 9000. The US Embassy in London will ring.




NOTE2:  The keypad does not allow us to dial the full length, standby for the upgrade.........

I also called China:  86 139 1099 8888

Yea that worked well,got my us number,but i have this test wallet in an other PS,without speaker and mic,so have to wait to test if it work.

Mvh.akkin4.

Thats great, yeah you can actually call other household members if you dial yourself and run two biblepay wallets.

Also since I have two hardware phones both of them ring when I receive a call.

Ill look into this 10 digit limitation.

I've emailed you ,,, problem is i have the us number but I can't dail all the digits of my phone number to test it... theres a limitation,,
I've tested it with other us number services and yes it was able to receive calls but I can't call my self because I can't input all the number ,,,
You can check the email that would be  helpful for me..

Yeah something to the effect of not being able to dial back to Norway because you can only dial 10 digits from the US?

Could you paste the whole question for benefit of everyone who wants to learn what we are doing?

In the mean time Ill debug the issue.

This will also help us demonstrate a web release in prod.

Yes im in to  :) Looks like the phone are only fore US users,dont find a option fore Norway  :( Can someone make a video how to make that sanc when testing are done?(step by step)//I let this testnet wallet solomine.Nice so fare:)
Hey thats great!  Glad to know it can whitelist you with a sanc, upgrade the software and get you in.  Later this week we can try pushing an upgrade to one of the web pages, and verify that your node upgraded itself.

So even though we are currently only giving out US numbers (thats because we do have the ability to give out other Countries numbers but the coding for that is pretty complicated) you should still theoretically be able to dial anywhere in the world even though you will have a US number.

Try dialing in e164 format (no need to type the +).
Try CountryCode + PhoneNumber
It should dial.

Btw, Im sure people will ask, phone charges appear on the charges tab for Completed call 15 or so minutes after they are completed (we can improve that also) and I know I need to add the duration asap as well.

Hi Akkin,

Can you please delete your %appdata%\biblepay\bms\bms.log so that we can start fresh again.
I am compiling v0.17.3.6 now.
Honestly I am not 100% sure if this solves it because this is a peculiar one.
But, I did find a bug that might be the problem; I tested this by simulating a connection to a sanc and it appears to work, so lets try this release.



Ok v0.17.3.6 is out there, please try this one.




Rob

PS:  Yes, I think we got the bug, this one works from a clean windows install.

Ok, were getting a little closer, because this shows that your MSI did successfully extract the Unchained BMSD bootloader and ran it (that explains why it looked like it was spinning or doing something).

But then it failed inside your big log post with some type of firewall issue.

(Meaning in essence it could not upgrade itself from the bad version from 2 days ago to the new 5.1 version of the web site), meaning its hosed.

So let me look into those firewall errors in detail next.
