Groundwire, Business Caliber SIP for the iPhone

GoogleVoice users:  Though we have integrated GoogleVoice, Groundwire's main use is as a SIP client.  You can set up Groundwire to initiate GoogleVoice calls through other types of numbers, but to get the full functionality of Groundwire, you need to have GoogleVoice linked to a SIP Account.
