StatusRequesting source code is a 'feature request' http://twitter.com/voxox/status/9836343137 and is something for customer service to deal with http://voxox.uservoice.com/forums/31101-beta/suggestions/459881-release-voxox-source-code-as-part-of-gpl-requireme?ref=title :s
It's now possible to download their source: http://www.voxox.com/index/help/knowledge-base/how-can-i-obtain-the-voxox-source-code/ The source code available for download is *not* that of the Voxox client software, but of a very old version of Wengophone (now known as QuteCom?) upon which it is based. The archive contains none of their extensive changes.
