Really not true - for one, phone companies aren't exactly anxious to let
you use SIP over 3G, and work has every right to block ports like that.
There are plenty of businesses who use SIP extensively. I'd admit you don't
get the best experience on your phone for any app, but try it at home on
your own router and using your laptop or asterisk or just on your phone -
cabled is also better than wifi. This sort of thing is probably why SIP on
the desktop tends to have fallen to an object that looks and acts
suspiciously like a POTS phone...
