Andy says “In marketing, it’s what makes you different that matters.” Andy is right, Michael Robertson should articulate why Gizmo is better! And it is – for many reasons. Open, elegant, simple to use, and it works with many different SIP networks.

Gizmo may be better for many reasons, but open source can not be one of them. I thought they even said that their license with GIPS prohibits them from making it open source; but then I might be confusing it with somebody else.
But more importantly, SIPPhone server and not Gizmo mediates your identity and your buddies. That is the catch.
good point… i meant open in connecting with other services.
Not entirely true. I tried Gizmo and couldn’t find a way to connect it to my own VoIP provider whatsoever.
SipPhone has also removed the XTen Pro product which I was trying to purchase so that I can connect to my OWN VoIP provider.
It seems, just like everyone else in the VoIP industry, they are trying to lock you into using their service.
That just sucks.
