    When a VOIP app hits that uses 'push' update, I.E. wakes the iPad for an incoming call... I'll be a happy man. Until then, I'm unhappy.

    My coworker is using skype for ipad to make regular phone calls. I haven't used it yet, but he says it works great. No video obviously, but he was able to call all his friends last night and the call quality was excellent.

    I would need the multi tasking as well. I understand you've made it work - which is great - but what use is it if you're asked about an appointment or a piece of data that's on your iPad when you have to quit the call to get the data?
    Most probably tapped on my iPad!

    Nice find robb25j.

    I may switch from fring+sipgate.com to Whistle Phone and adding the local google voice number...

    (Whistle phone) Not bad, had to listen to a short ad before it connected my outgoing call (3G) but the call quality seemed fine. Nice simple interface, looks like you can conference on the 2 lines, will have to try that and see how well that works.

    Yea, I just need a app that supports SIP+PUSH. Maybe not Push, if I can background it. Might be something on cydia.

    I agree with you but I don't want to use my iPad for a phone app unless I can multitask at the same time.. To me, what's the point? My cell phone does just fine and dandy
