Bria iPhone Edition User Guide
2.4 Working with Contacts
Bria uses contacts saved on your device. Bria’s contacts are continually synchronized with your native
contacts; adding, modifying or deleting a contact from one list updates the other list.
On iOS, you can set up multiple sources for contacts (for example, iCloud, Gmail, Exchange, Facebook) and
merge all into the native contact app. If you do this, you can access all contacts on Bria as well.
Updating Unified Contacts
When multiple entries are merged into one entry on iOS, modifying a contact within Bria updates all the contact
sources. For example, if you have set up the contacts from iCloud, Gmail, and Exchange and link three entries
as one entry on iOS, you will see one single contact on Bria, with unified information from three sources.
Editing this contact on Bria updates all three sources of iCloud, Gmail, and Exchange. If you want to update
only one source (such as iCloud), use the native Contacts app.
Facebook Contacts
If a Facebook account is connected on the device, Bria shows the most recent post of your Facebook friends on
the Contact details page.
The following shows how to merge Facebook contacts and view the posts of your friends on Bria.

CounterPath Corporation
Make sure your device is running iOS 6 or above.
Go to iOS Settings >
Facebook.
You do not need to install the Facebook app.
Enter your credentials.
Leave this On.
The entries with the same name
will be merged into one entry.
Tap to sign in.
Follow the prompt.
Tap to add Facebook
Contacts to your
device.
All information coming from
Facebook will be read-only.

Facebook friends. Tap one of them, then Bria accesses your
Facebook account to retrieve the most recent post of this friend.
Tap OK to allow.
Tapping the arrow
takes you to the
contact details
page (shown on
the left) and
updates the friend’s
status message.
If you tap this, Bria does not
access your Facebook
account. You can change
this permission from iOS
Settings > Facebook, then
turn on/off for Bria.
10
Tapping IM allows you to start chatting with
this person if you set up an XMPP account
with Facebook credentials.

4.4 Starting XMPP Group Chat
You can host a group chat using your XMPP account on Bria when the following requirements are met:
•
•
•
Your XMPP server must support Multi User Chat extension as defined in XEP-0045.
All the clients must support XEP-0045. For example, users with the previous version of the app cannot join
a chat room.
All the users must connect to the same XMPP server; in other words their XMPP accounts must have the
same domain.
How it Works
In a group chat, multiple participants can share messages. When a host starts a group chat, an invitation message
is sent to all the selected buddies. The buddies join the chat either automatically or after accepting the invitation
depending on the client they are using. If a buddy is offline or declines the invitation, the buddy will not be
placed into the group chat.
Once a group chat becomes available, the chat remains active until everyone leaves the chat. The participants
including the host can leave the chat and come back later if the chat is still active. If there are undelivered
messages, Bria will download the messages from the XMPP server and display them in chat history. The chat
history will be saved locally on Bria so that the user can look at it even when the XMPP account is unregistered.
Tap the Messages tab, then tap IM.
Tap a conversation to send
messages and see chat history.
Names of current participants.
Tap Details and then their name to
view the contact detail.
Your messages appear on
the right.
The green chat icon
inducates the group chat
room is active.
You can copy a message to
the device’s clipboard by a
long-tap on a message.
If a room appears with No Participants and a
green icon, that means you are the last person in the chat
room; the room will be closed when you leave.
33
CounterPath Corporation
Starting a Group Chat
You can invite up to 10 XMPP buddies; 11 people maximum in one chat including you.
•
Buddies must be online (registered to the XMPP server); if their accounts are unregistered, they will not
receive your invitation and therefore cannot join the group chat.
Once a group chat is held with participants, you cannot add more buddies or remove some of the
participants.
•
Tap IM/Messges, then IM.
Tap the icon to select a buddy.
Tap + to add more
buddies.
A long-tap on a buddy allows you to
remove the person. You cannot remove
anyone once you send the invitation
message.
You will see messages when they join or
leave the room.
Type an invitation
message.
Tap the Send button.
Joining a Group Chat
You might get invited to a group chat. On Bria, the invitation message will come in to your XMPP account as a
regular message. As soon as you receive the message, you are automatically placed into the group chat.
Leaving a Group Chat
Unregistering your XMPP account lets you leave all the active group chats.
Deleting a group chat on the IM/Messages tab also lets you leave the chat, but you will not be able to come back
to the chat or view the chat history.
34
Bria iPhone Edition User Guide
4.5 Viewing Others’ Status (Adding a Buddy)
To view someone’s online status, you need to add this person as a buddy. A buddy must have an XMPP address
or a softphone number. An XMPP address and a softphone number are typically a username. For XMPP
accounts, your buddies are stored in an XMPP server, not in your local iPhone contacts. This means the name
and presence of your buddies appear in your Buddies list (not in All Contacts) while your XMPP account is
connected. For SIP accounts, your buddies are stored in your local iPhone contacts.
XMPP Accounts
Make sure that your XMPP account is ON (connected to an XMPP server). When you add a buddy, Bria sends
a buddy request to the buddy. You will see the person’s status after the person accepts your buddy request. If the
person declines the request, the person will remain in the your buddies list with Blocked status. You can re-send
a buddy request to the person by tapping Unblock Buddy on the buddy profile screen.

4.6 Setting Your Own Status
When you start Bria, your online status becomes “Available”. When you make or receive a phone call, Bria
automatically updates your status to “On The Phone” if your online status is “Available” and no custom status
note is specified. You can change your status from “Available” to other statuses such as “Busy” or “Away”.
Once you change your status from “Available” or specify a custom status note, your status will remain as
specified until you switch yourself.

Busy
On The Phone
When you make or receive phone calls, Bria automatically updates your status to “On The Phone” if
your status is “Available“ and no custom note is specified. When your call finishes, your status goes
back to “Available“.
While you are on the phone, you can still send and receive IMs.
38
Do Not Disturb
No one can call you; the call fails and your call history shows a missed call. Your buddies can send
you IM; an alert comes up on the IM tab without any sound.
Appear Offline
You are able to see presence of your buddies, but your buddies see you as offline. You will actually
receive phone calls and IMs if your buddies do contact you; they are unlikely to do so because your
buddies cannot tell the difference between “Appear Offline“ and you really being offline.

4.7 Responding to Buddy Requests
When using an XMPP account, you may receive a buddy request. You must respond to the request. You have
three options.
•
•
•
Accept: you let the other person see your online status. At the same time, the buddy request will be
automatically sent from your Bria to this person, and you will see this person’s status in your buddies list.
Decline: the person will not see your online status. You will not see this person on your Buddies list either.
Ignore: the person will not see your online status. The buddy request may appear in this session or in a
future sesson.
An alert comes up. Tap.
This person
wants to see your
online status.
Tap to set a display
name.
Tap a desired
option.
When using a SIP account for presence, you will not receive a buddy request. As soon as the person on the other
end registers your softphone number on the client, the person will see your presence without your acceptance.
Similarily, you will see someone’s presence right away without having to wait for the person’s response.

• OFF (default): Bria decides whether to use STUN or not depending on the STUN Wi-Fi setting
under Advanced Settings.
Suppress STUN Mobile
This setting has the same function as Suppress STUN Wi-Fi, but applies only when you are
connected over the mobile network.
Use ICE Wi-Fi
ICE is involved only in media routing (it is not involved in SIP signaling).
ON: Bria will use ICE to discover addresses for media packets. ICE provides a good guarantee of
two-way audio. However, to use ICE successfully, both endpoints in a call must use ICE and
specifically must use draft 19 of the ICE standard.
OFF: Try turning ICE off if you are not using iPhone behind a firewall or NAT.
Use ICE Mobile
This setting has the same function as ICE Wi-Fi, but applies only when you are connected over
the mobile network.
Global IP Wi-Fi
• ON (default): Bria will publish its public IP address at the signaling level. The public address
may not work with some NATs or firewalls.
• OFF: Bria will publish its private IP address at the signaling level.
"Off" represents server-based network traversal, "On" app-based.
Global IP Mobile
This setting has the same functionality as Global IP Wi-Fi, but applies only when you are
connected over the mobile network.
If you set this setting to ON, you must also set Global IP Wi-Fi to ON.

SIP Transport
Tap to display the choices. Contact your VoIP service provider to identify the types of transport
that are supported.
• UDP and TCP do not support signal encryption.
• TLS does support signal encryption. If TLS is selected, a given call will be encrypted if the
other person also uses TLS. You may also need to install a certificate on your iPhone; speak to
your VoIP service provider.
Encrypt Audio
If the transport is set to TLS, you can encrypt a phone call at the media (audio) level:
• Never: Audio is not encrypted.
• If Possible: On a given call, audio will be encrypted if the other person supports and is also
using audio encryption. If not, audio will not be encrypted.
• Always: Audio will always be encrypted. The call will fail if the other person cannot accept
encrypted calls.
Incoming Calls
Typically ON, in order to receive calls. If OFF, you will not be able to receive calls using Bria.
Wi-Fi Refresh Interval
The timer interval between Bria’s attempts to register in order to refresh the account registration.
This value is placed in the “Expires” header field of the SIP REGISTER message.
Change this value only if advised to do so by your VoIP service provider.
Mobile Refresh Interval
This setting has the same function as Wi-Fi Refresh Interval, but applies to registrations made
over the mobile data network.
Keep Alive - Wi-Fi Interval
A “keep alive” message is a mechanism for maintaining a “pinhole” through your firewall so that
the account registration is maintained. The interval specifies how often the message is sent (in
seconds).
If you are experiencing problems (for example, accounts become unregistered when using a WiFi connection), try setting this interval to a lower number such as 20.

Single Register
Applies only if Global IP is ON.
• ON (default): Bria will register using a single register request.
• OFF: Bria will register using an unregister and a register.
Passive Session Timer
Controls the use of session timers on SIP accounts. The session timer is used to determine if the
call is still active. Only choose Off if advised by your VoIP service provider.
• ON (default): Bria will not use session timers in any session, except it is explicitly required by
the remote party.
• OFF: Bria will use session timers in all sessions whenever the remote party supports and uses
it.
Connection Reuse
• ON: Bria uses existing connections by including an “ob“ parameter in a header as defined in
RFC5626.
• OFF: Bria does not reuse existing connections.
Changing this setting might solve problems with dropping or holding calls. The default is On.

can allow your phone calls to be given a higher priority on the network. The default is
OFF.
Codecs Variable Bitrate
This setting applies when the negotiated codec is AMR-WB, SILK, Opus or H.264 (for
video call).
When this setting is turned on, Bria dynamically adjusts the bitrate throughout the call,
based on the current network conditions. For example, when Bria detects many packets
are lost, it tries to lower the bitrate (within the range of a bitrate supported by a specific
codec), in order to ensure the best possible quality under the circumstance.
We recommend that you leave this setting ON, especially when AMR-WB, SILK, Opus

• On: Bria sends notifications when an account fails to register. Bria also notifies the
user after the account is successfully re-registered. Make sure that Bria notifications
are enabled under iOS Settings.
• Off (default): Bria does not send notifications regarding account registration errors.
Enable RPort
• On: the outgoing INVITE message will have an RPort parameter inside the Via
header, which indicates that Bria supports RFC 3581. If the server also supports RFC
3581, the server should respond with the RPort parameter set to the incoming public
IP port and the received parameter set to the public IP address. This is the default
behavior in previous Bria versions.
• Off: Bria does not have the RPort parameter in the Via header.
Enable PRACK
• On: Bria advertises that it supports “100rel” and allows PRACK, as defined in RFC
3262. The outgoing INVITE message will have “100rel” in the Supported header and
“PRACK” in the Allow header. This is the default behavior in previous Bria versions.
• Off: Bria will not advertise these features; there will be no “100rel” in the Supported
header.
Encode # in URI
• On (default): Bria escapes a hash character (#) used in the user part of SIP URI, as
required by RFC 3261.
• Off: Bria does not escape a hash character and sends it as is. Turn this setting off if you

just your public address depending on the ICE settings under Account
Advanced .
• Server Managed: STUN OFF and DNS SRV ON.
Bria will present your device’s private address for SIP signaling and when
negotiating media routing. Choose this option if your VoIP service provider

Description
DNS SRV
• ON: Bria will use DNS SRV to discover the network addresses for your VoIP service

• OFF: Bria will not use DNS SRV for discovery. Only turn this setting off if your system
administrator advises you to do so.
STUN Server
Used only if STUN is ON. The default is stun.counterpath.com but we recommend that you
change this to an address provided by your VoIP service provider. CounterPath cannot
guarantee the availability of their STUN server.
STUN Wi-Fi
• ON: Bria will use a STUN server to discover your public IP address.
• OFF: Bria does not discover your public IP address. Therefore, only the private IP address
will be used. Typically, Global IP should be set to OFF to assure that the private IP address is
used for SIP signaling.

below.
Mobile Audio Codecs
Wi-Fi Audio Codecs
These two screens list the audio codecs that can be used during a Wi-Fi call or mobile data call. Codecs are
programs in Bria involved in transmitting audio; each codec has different characteristics and therefore each
works better in some situations than in others.
In general, it is desirable to have several codecs enabled. Make sure that there are common codecs between you
and the remote peer, otherwise your call will fail with a 488 error.
Novice and Non-technical Users
We recommend you use the default setting/priority and let Bria select the best codec to use in a given situation.
Technically Savvy Users
You may choose to enable one, some or all codecs. If only one codec is enabled, all calls will be made with that
codec. If more than one is enabled, Bria negotiates the codec to use (from among the enabled codecs) with the
other person.
You can prioritize codecs by dragging them up or down in the list. Codecs higher in the list are given a higher
priority in the offer, when negotiating codecs with the other party. Therefore, moving a codec higher should
improve its chances of being chosen.
G.722, AMR-WB, SILK-WB (16kHz), SILK-HD (24kHz), and Opus-Full HD (48kHz) are wideband codecs.
All other codecs are narrowband. When a wideband codec is used, data usage will be higher and audio quality
will generally be better. When a narrowband codec is used, data usage may be lower but audio quality may be
affected.
Data usage for the codecs with a fixed bit rate, from high to low usage, is: G.722, G.711, iLBC, GSM, G.729a.
AMR-WB, SILK, and Opus have a variable bit rate; the data usage will fluctuate depending on the network
conditions.

You can prioritize codecs by dragging them up or down in the list. Codecs higher in the list are given a higher
priority in the offer, when negotiating codecs with the other party. Therefore, moving a codec higher should
improve its chances of being chosen.

AMR-WB Audio Codec
Adaptive Multi-Rate wideband (AMR-WB) audio codec is a wideband codec that provides superior sound
quality due to a wider speech bandwidth.
G.729 Audio Codec
G.729 is a narrowband codec that is intended for low bandwidth use. It is particularly recommended if you will
be making calls over 3G/4G because it provides better audio quality on your mobile data connection.
Presence and Messaging
Presence and Messaging allows you to send instant messages to your buddies and share your online status
(presence) with them. You can use this feature on XMPP accounts (such as Gmail or Facebook) and/or SIP
accounts, depending on whether your VoIP service provider supports this feature for SIP SIMPLE. With SIP
accounts, you can also send SMS to PSTN cell phone numbers if your VoIP service provider supports this
feature.
After the purchase, the IM tab appears on the bottom of your Bria. See page 6 to set up this feature.
Video Calls
With this feature, you can make video calls to softphone numbers over Wi-Fi and mobile data network. The
codecs H.264 and VP8 are supported. Make sure that your VoIP service provider supports video calls before the
purchase. After the purchase, enable video on Preferences and on your SIP account. Then you will see an
option to make video calls on the Contacts or History tab.

B Dial Plans
You can create a dial plan in order to modify a phone number used in a phone call (the “input”), in order to
ensure the call is placed successfully. For example, you could create dial plan to change any number that starts
with “+1613” to just “613”.
Setting up Dial Plans
You can create as many dial plans for an account as you need. A dial plan belongs only to one account. Bria
goes through the dial plans in the order in which they appear on the screen. You can drag dial plans to change
their order.
Go to Settings > Accounts > tap the account. Scroll down.
Tap
Tap
Complete the fields as
required; see below.
Tap to save
The dial plan is added
to the list.

Designing the Dial Plan
A dial plan has two parts:
•
•
A pattern that the phone number (the input) must match.
The modification to make if the input matches that pattern: removing a prefix, adding a prefix, or removing
one prefix and adding another one. Subsequence substitution is also supported.
Example 1
Match number: +1613x.
Remove Prefix: +1613
Add Prefix: 9
If the input starts with “+1613”, then remove the “+1613” then add “9” and dial the number. So +16135550012
is dialed as 95550012.
Example 2
Match number: [2-9]xxxxxxxxx
Add Prefix: 1
If the input is a 10-digit number starting with a number other than 1, then add “1” and dial the number. So
6045550012 is dialed as 16045550012.
The Pattern
The pattern can be made up of any combination of the following:
Element
Description
0 to 9
Any digit
x
A single wildcard
*#+
These symbols
[]
A collection that can include range. For example [6-9] means 6 7 8
9. Or [136-9] means 1 3 6 7 8 9.
.
Repeat the last element 0 or more times. For example, with the
pattern “12.” the following input will match:
1 (The “2” is repeated zero times)
12
122
1222 and so on
The Modification
The modification can add or remove characters, and can be made up of digits, wildcards or symbols.

Advanced Dial Plan: Subsequence Substitution
The match pattern can include a sequence of numbers to match and another sequence to substitute for the match.
This feature is useful if you want to convert a sequence within the input, not just add or remove a prefix.
The syntax is:
<input sequence : substitute sequence>
For example: <604:250> means change the sequence “604” to “250”.
The sequence substitution element can be combined with any other elements in the match pattern. For example:
+x.<604:250>x. would change match +6045551212 and +16135556040 and in both cases change the “604” to
“250”.

3G/4G call
A call made using the Bria screen. Compare to “native call”.
Codecs are programs in Bria involved in transmitting audio; each codec has different
characteristics and therefore each works better in some situations than in others.
Dual-tone multi frequency. DTMF is the system that is used in interactive voiceresponse menu systems such as the menu system for accessing voicemail messages.
The DTMF system allows the user to interact with the menu by pressing keys on a
dialpad or keyboard.
The button at the bottom of the iPhone or iPod touch.
Instant Messaging. A technology that lets users send text messages for near
instantaneous delivery and display on each others’ devices.
Interactive Connectivity Establishment. A method for traversing a firewall.
A unique number that identifies a device. Devices on a network use the IP address to
communicate with each other.
Interactive Voice Response. IVRs use DTMF.
The audio portion (and the video portion if any) of a call. Compare to “Signaling”.
A call made using the phone service that comes with the iPhone. Does not apply to the
iPod touch.
The phone service that comes with the iPhone.
Public Switch Telephone Network. The traditional land-line phone network.
An instant messaging feature that allows users to share information about their online
status.
The information in a call that deals with establishing and controlling the connection,
and managing the network. The non-signaling portion of the call is the Media.
Session Initiation Protocol. The signaling protocol followed by Bria for handling
phone calls.
An account that provides the user the ability to make VoIP phone calls. The account
encapsulates the rules and functions the user can access.
The address used to connect to a SIP endpoint. In other words, the “phone number”
used in a VoIP phone call. For example, sip:joseph@domainA.com.
Simple Traversal of UDP through a firewall or NAT.
A Bria call made over the Wi-Fi internet. To make a Wi-Fi call, you must be in a WiFi zone.
An account that provides the user with the ability to send IMs and view other people’s
presence.
A Bria call that uses the mobile data newtork rather than the Wi-Fi network. If you
start (or receive) a call with an iPhone when you are not in a Wi-Fi zone, the call will
be a 3G/4G call. Not all supported devices support 3G; see page 3.
