Groundwire: Business SIP Phone
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.

Combining all the features business users need (see below) with intuitive features created with the mobile user specifically in mind (number rewriting, address book matching and more), Groundwire will quickly have you wondering how you survived without it before.

***NOTES - IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ***
SIP - Groundwire is a SIP Client, not a VoIP service. You must have service with a VoIP provider or PBX that supports use on a standard SIP client to use it.
VoIP over 3G - Be aware that some mobile network operators prohibit or restrict the use of VoIP over their network. They may prohibit the use of VoIP or impose additional fees and/or charges when using VoIP over their network.

Excellent app with a killer feature
This is a great app for family or enterprise use. Great voice quality, flexible options, nice integration with iPhone (and iPad), lovely user interface.
And: After some plowing through Acrobits’ wiki and scratching my head a little, I found it supports external provisioning. That’s wonderful: you can set up simple .xml provisioning profiles on a web server (or even in Dropbox’s public web folder) and give your users a click-link that, when clicked on their iDevice, will automatically set this application up. I’ve encouraged Acrobits to improve the description of how to do this, but if I figured it out you probably can too.
Really great app, and well worth the small amount of money it costs… especially considering the massive savings VoIP brings!
UPDATE: after several years I remain delighted with this app. Call quality, ease of use, iPhone-worthy design... first class stuff.
