Best VOIP App For iPad

What is the best VOIP App for the iPad?
Is the tried and true Skype the way to go?
I have been looking at a retro product called Moshi 01, it is a handset that you can plug into an iPad and make turn it into a giant phone.

Any thoughts?

skype is good if you don't run your own voip server at home... if you do there are a few other products that you can get for your iDevice..

then there's always google voice..

Skype is the best way to go for VoIP. It's the most widely used program.

Google voice + gizmo5 = free phone. Skype out charges. One current issue is that there is not a (fully) working free sip app for iPad yet, but hopefully soon nimbuzz or fringe will work.

Skype all the way for me. It would even get better with the upcoming iPhone OS 4.

I would never buy an account from an untrustworthy scammer.

Selling accounts that they should not be selling.

That doesnt make them scammers. Scammers indicate they dont provide the service in question and I did indeed receive my gizmo account

Making phone calls with the Apple iPad is only possible via a detour over internet telephony (voice over IP or just voip). Providers such as Skype or Sipgate and the software developer Acrobits have released voip apps or clients for making phone calls with the iPhone, the iPod Touch or the iPad. While Apple iPad WiFi users can make voip calls whenever they find a hotspot for connecting to the web, some operators in Germany prohibit voip calls over their GSM and 3G networks. For example, Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile) and Vodafone only allow voip calls over their networks when the subscriber has booked a special tariff option. On the other hand, customers of O2 Germany may use voip services with their mobile device.

+ 1 for Skype. Don't use it much but it's handy to have. Is Google voice still U.S. only?
