The Vippie Softphone for iPhone , A iPhone SIP Client from Voipswitch.

Voipswitch iPhone dialer
The Vippie Softphone for iPhone by Voipswitch is specifically designed for iPhone and iPod. It can work with SIP servers and softswitch’s including the Voipswitch Solution.
The iPhone SIP Client supports g729 codec (also GSM, g722 and g711). In addition there is the VoIP tunnel client built-in enabling users to make and receive calls from blocked areas. The app is not yet in the iTunes App Store and until then you can get it if you have access to Cydia, basically for jailbroken iPhones. But I am very intersted about one feature; "Connectivity through WIFI, 3G, EDGE and GPRS"

“When we set out to build the Voipswitch solution, we established a deep understanding of how people really want to communicate through the Internet. With the Apple products gaining so much momentum and popularity amongst the global population, and WIFI enabled zones spreading very quickly, it became apparent that a solution for Apple products needed to be included amongst the Voipswitch Modules.” said Dr.Chris Oglaza CTO Voiceserve Inc. “The Apple dialer is equipped with the tunneling software which decreases the bandwidth usage, hence significantly improving voice quality in weak internet access conditions. The tunnel enables communication in all scenarios overriding possible firewalls.”

The Cydia version could be obtained from here. Jailbreaking could be hazardous to your iPhone.
