    Could it be possible to "modify", instal X-LITE (voip app) on iphone? I use it with my macbook pro, and it's a great app, and over an SIP server, with wifi connection, it could be a great issue to make calls with iphone...

    Not unless you happen to have the source code lying around.

    I 'd be in with another $100. I am uing a Nokia E60 (with integrated WLAN- and SIP-Client) here in Germany. VoIP (Sip) is working perfect over WLAN (just had a vaccation in Greece with free Hotsport at the Hotel). Works over UMTS in Europe aswell, iPhone does not support that but i don`t care.
    Sipgate in Germany (www.sipgate.de) and UK (www.sipgate.co.uk) are providing free account inclusing a landline "real" Phone Number you can be reached through by any Phone. If you wanna call landline phone, you need a prepaid account. I put 50 Euro (65 $) into a year ago, been in the US, Greece aso a lot. Still 42 Euro in my account - perfect.

    Well... I'm feeling charitable, but cheap :-) I'll add $50 for an Asterisk compatible SIP client. While we're at it, Asterisk surely can be ported to iPhone. I've worked a bit with David Rowe at rowetel.com. This guy and his cohorts got Asterisk running on the Blackfin architecture. An iPhone should be easy in comparison.

    This is an awesome idea. I approve of this thread.

    We could definitely use this a lot more than doom for the iphone at the time being.

    Here are some open source projects to get whoever wants to work on this started:

    VOIP:
    http://divmod.org/projects/shtoom
    http://yate.null.ro/pmwiki/
    http://www.freeswitch.org/

    SIP:
    http://www.openwengo.org/
    http://www.sipfoundry.org/sipXezPhone/

    I hope this helps

    While I like this idea and agree it'll be easier to build a SIP client for the iPhone than Skype (which is essentially closed) one thing I've always struggled with is why I would use a SIP softphone instead of Skype.... Any thought from anyone?

    Freeswitch allready compiles and runs on OS X and for Linux on the ARM platform. It was designed to be a voip softphone among other things. The only thing it needs is a pretty gui.

    Skype is a closed protocol and SIP is an open protocol. In a nutshell, Skype sucks because Skype only connects to Skype.

    I get that but most of the people I'd like to chat to are either Skype users or places where my Skype Pro account lets me call them for free.

    Aside from the closed protocol issue I can see a few key benefits for SIP:

    1. I can 'roam' across multiple devices with the same number (home phone, Mac, Nokia E65, hopefully iPhone) - Skype isn't as flexible
    2. I can call for the same rate regardless of the originating region (SkpyePro detects where you are calling from and cheekily charges you for the call if you're not in a SkypePro county - I found this out in Tokyo)
    3. If the softphone supported IAX I could connect to my home Asterisk server and use my real phone line for incoming and outgoing calls as well as check voicemail, etc...

    So I think I answered my own question
