    I use a program called Nimbuzz (free IM client) which has support for Gizmo accounts. They recently updated to support multitasking for iOS4.

    Calling out works perfectly via. Google Voice; my Nimbuzz alerts me after I put in the number on an external GV client, and I can chat through VoIP.

    Only thing I'm not sure about is regarding incoming calls though (if someone calls my google voice how will the phone figure out whether to answer via VoIP or through the default phone interface?)

    Ipod touch users who have multitasking can rejoice as well; now with wi-fi you can also VoIP without the need for jailbreaking!

    Update: Looks like incoming calls don't work quite as well. Nimbuzz picks it up, but my phone just takes over...

    Apologies if I was a bit late into the game, this is how I figured one could get outgoing VoIP working w/o jailbreaking but if there was something out there already....oops *sheepish look*

    EDIT: please delete this thread. I obviously did not test this thoroughly enough...outgoing calls only work from an external gvoice client (I tested using my computer to call which alerted Nimbuzz)....sigh
