Just took a look at the video, looks very good, in terms of setting it up and performance on iphone, it was very smooth also. But I figure a app like that you have to pay for, since its so good.
In terms of early question about advantage of using free pbxes account over linphone free account, there really is only as they both do the same thing in my opinion just that pbxes has been intergrated with google voice to the point that eliminates the use of call backs which is why I feel a lot of people who make calls through sip on android have switched to pbxes. Also pbxes configures the incoming calls to your sip address and outgoing calls from you sip address and is like asterisk server only without having to go in terminal and messing around with codes and other stuff that is apart of asterisk. That way with pbxes you just make and receive calls from a sip phone client, with pbxes doing all the work in background. The problem with pbxes is that if your not a premium member, which u have to pay for there, then there is lack of support for you. I feel that is bad on pbxes part but its there way of trying to make some money, but for the lack of support, thats where trial and error comes in and learning from your mistakes to find out what works, and researching on google to find out a way to get pbxes to work being a free user as you can't post anything in the forums. Also with that pbxes I feel will lose people attention b/c if someone is not really interested they will not want to go through the headache of lack of support.
I spent like 3 months learning about how to do this, b/c i was determined to figure out a way to make free phone calls using just data plan off my phone to try and cut back, in these economic conditions. So i went through a lot of trail and error but you eventual find the way, all this that we are doing would be extremely easier if google voice allowed people to sign up to get gizmo account, b/c google voice bought gizmo 5 and grand central, but they won't. If you had a gizmo account you would have been making free calls years ago, but then google voice wouldn't be accepted by the phone companies on there markets in apps, b/c they would lose money on people just having data plans. But you seemed to have figured out your way of how you will make free phone calls with your iphone so now its just for you to perfect and fine tune it if you have any little problems here and there. If you need anything else or info that might be helpful keep emailing the linphone users mailing list and i am sure someone will reply, or you can drop me an email.

This softphone works really well. Good interface and call quality on wifi.
Integrates GV very much, I think, like you describe sipdroid AND it suppoerts multiple accts. so I have it set up for my localphone acct for non USA calls (Localphone - .009 to EU landlines, some of the lowest rates I have found to the Caribbean and Mid-East).

Well I just can't get Linphone to ring my phone. Calls work fine placed to my GV # and "outgoing" through GV Mobile but no ringing either way!!?? GV Mobil is a jailbreak app BTW, the GV app in itunes won't allow the callback to your choice of # as far as I can tell.
Do you think there is an advantage getting a free pbxes acct. vs. the Linphone free sip acct?
It seems easier with sipdroid than my iphone 2g (for 3g+ there is
talkatone app that seems to do what sipdroid does - dial in / out from a
single app). No automatic setup / configuration for pbxes for iphone app like you
describe for sipdroid. I couldn't find a setup guide on the pbxes site
and much of the discussions were over my head. Did I miss a newbie setup
guide or iphone 2g guide? Currently using the Linphone free sip account
and am curious what is different, better, advantage(s) of using a free
pbxes sip account vs. the free Linphone sip account?
I found this re some help w/pbxes setup

I'm glad you brought up gv mobile it was I think once on the Android market, didn't know it was on app store for apple.
In terms of linphone not ringing, it should ring, when u do a test call to your Google voice number it should ring your linphone sip client. If that happens it should also happen for when the call back is being placed by gv mobile.
In regards to really good sip phones for iPhones, I really don't know that many b/c I am use to Android and the famous sip phone for Android is sipdriod, which is really great, as its been out for a while and they have sipdriod intergrated with Google voice, but in terms of apple and ios I think the best sip phone would be linphone. You might have to just be the enduser that tells the developers, what enhancements and bugs are going on in an iPhone, and what u are trying to accomplish with linphone; in order to improve linphone.
