Hi all,  after a couple of months I’m happy to inform that I implement a new version of  Call Via Phone app for SNOM device. This version work also for Lync 2013 and obviously Lync 2010.

Step to install this new version :

  • Uninstall any old version of callviaphone   before install this one.
  • Install the latest KB for lync 2013 kb2760512, otherwise it don’t work on lync 2013 and work only on Lync 2010. 

Following all Windows version tested :

  • Windows 7 32/64 bit
  • Windows 8 64 bit

Following is a brief guide:

Unique Installation for 32 and 64 bit :

Download link :  Call Via Phone app

Once installed go ahead with the setup.


  • Start Lync 2013/2010 Client and go to Tools –> Configure Call Via Phone App
  • After that a Message Box appear , and after you fill the field with phone IP address  , Extension or Username and PIN or Password,  click to save.
  •  After that, you are now ready to use the call via phone app.


On your buddy list , right click to a contact and click “Call Via phone” , at this point your SNOM phone must start to call the contact selected from Lync.

Please give feedback and do not hesitate to contact me for any kind of information or problem.

  1. I have a question

    Would it not possible to make Lync believe that your application is a USB device (with a driver?), Then it would appear at the bottom left of the Lync client (such as when connecting a certified USB headset or a phone Aries ), we would just have to configure the IP address of the IP phone, and we could use the click to call as if you had a Lync Phone Edition, but with SNOM phone?

    It would be more intrusive for the system than just Lync plugin, but to use for the user it would be perfect.

    • I dourn , thanks for interesting on call via phone app, your consideration on using driver is a good idea, i’ll check the feasibility , but surely i’ts quite different because we have to consider that you have another “virtual” usb headset that OS can use not only in lync enviroment, so we have to manage a lot of exception to isolate for using it only in Lync client enviroment.

  2. Hello

    we just installed the application.
    It works fine for Lync Contacts, but for Outlook contacts which do NOT have a SIP Address it fails.
    We would be really interested in your commercial version.

    Another topic would be, how we could could directly from outlook 2010/2013.
    Do you have any solutions for this?

    Greetings Michael

    • Hi Michael, thanks for your comment, as you wrote the Advanced version of the app can do this, because when you “call via phone” any contact (lync or not lync) from buddy list you can choose which numbers to call. About using it directly from Outlook i can implement this in the advanced app , that i think it will come out in the next 2 weeks. If you want you can be alerted via email or twitter when it’s available . Feel free to contact me directly for any further question. Thanks , Gianluca
