Ben... this IS the very reason win/mac is more widely used, devs won't make linux software! I don't want my system hacked and crashing all the time, so I avoid Windows. I don't want an over priced foofoo machine only to muck it up with grease and grime, so I avoid Apple. I don't want to spend money on an expensive OS, only to find out a few years later it is obsolete and I have to pay more for all new hardware, which is partly why many people are moving to Linux. Linux is cheap, secure, can run forever even on the crappiest spec'd hardware, and it even runs on my phone and appliances too, why are developers not getting the hint? I'm tired of having to run windows on my linux box via a VM, just because of a select few companies lame business decisions!

What I did was I used the Google Chrome Extension for RingCentral, and run my GMail account from it. So far, I have no problems with my apps.

I cannot get a third party phone to work. Called ringcentral and they said they don't know how either. Before I signed up they said I could! Why did they lie? Can you get me the right help?

I realize this is an old thread and reply, but I hope still monitered. Are there instructions for how to get the SIP info needed for a 3rd party phone? There are several that use the correct codec, but finding the settings for my account is my issue. Can you help?

This isn't quite a full functioning soft phone, but for the Linux users, if you have Chrome installed, you can use the Google Chrome extension.  Our Blog page has an introductory video you can watch.  https://blog.ringcentral.com/2015/01/ringcentral-now-integrates-google-work/

The one big difference, is that it uses the RingOut feature to initiate the call. It's not a full functioning phone, but it's a big step for anybody that uses Google on a Linux machine.
