The next release of android os (2.3 aka gingerbread) is supposed to have a SIP client built into the OS and integrated with all the contacts etc. You still must use the SIP provider of your choice. I don't know that it will play well with ooma, but in theory I suspect it should.

Ooma isn't straight SIP. They have some customizations to various sections so it is unlikely to work with Ooma unless Ooma is participating in the process. IMO you are more likely to see a custom Ooma Android app than get a generic SIP client working with Ooma.

For those of you who have had that Ooma Mobile Android app on your Christmas wish list, Santa has arrived... well sort of.

As of today, Toktumi is now offering their Line2 service for Android based cell phones.
http://www.line2.com/index.html

I had originally acquired a Toktumi account so that customers could call me (on a toll free #) without incurring any toll charges. Toktumi also offers regular numbers (non toll free) in many, if not most, area codes. The service works very well and is an excellent compliment to my Ooma service. Well, it turns out that my Toktumi account at $14.95 also provides me with their Line2 service for no additional charge. Alternatively, Toktumi offers a pared down version of Line2 for $9.95 per month. Prior to today, Line 2 was available only on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. As of today, their Android app is available.

If anyone is interested in trying Toktumi or Line2, I think I might be entitled to a free month of their service if my "agent" identification number (170706) is plugged into the system (not sure where). Also, Toktumi offers a free month as a trial. See, http://toktumi.com/

Since I currently have an iPhone, I can use both Ooma Moblie and Line2 (which as stated above, is included with my regular Toktumi service). Thus, in effect, I can have 3 lines (or at least 3 different numbers) on my iPhone.

[OOPS! i might be a bit premature. While Toktumi's web site changed today to reflect availability of Line2 on Android based cell phones, it will not allow the signup to proceed. Probably just putting the finishing touch on their web site.]
