    Not through my home gateway, nor remotely using Verizon. I have read the 'help' section on the Echolink site, but none of their suggestions (most of which appear to apply to Windows applications) have been useful. It appears that there are only a few settings on the iPhone version of the Echolink software which allow user modification.

    Any suggestions or help will be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried to use "Public Relay?"

    I uninstalled the software, and re-installed. Now working fine.

    Cool that you have it working. :)

    The app was originally made for Android.

    iPhone is missing important settings and the audio is not as good compared to a Android phone.

    Have Fun.

    Yes sir, I found a small external microphone for iPhone and iPad and that seemed to help the audio a good bit.

    I do not agree. I have been using an iPhone on echolink for quite a while with absolutely no problems in setup or in use.

    K6CID, what mic do you use on your iPhone? Is it lightning connected or through the audio jack. I have an older 5S phone. I’ve tried both connectors with apple ear buds with mixed results.

    Do you have Remote PTT toggled? I will be listening on a site and suddenly get beautiful quality music coming in 59. Disconnect & reconnect from EchoLink and no music

    I just successfully installed Echolink on my iPad Pro (2018, iOS v.12.1.1) and it looks like it'll work; I'll try it in the morning with a USB mic connected to a USB-A to USB-C connector so it'll plug into the iPad directly. If that doesn't work, I have a bluetooth headset...somewhere. : S

    EchoLink was released for Windows, then iOS, then Android. The audio should be similar on all three platforms since they all use the same audio capture parameters and codec. I'm not sure which settings on iOS are missing.
