    If you have an Android phone, you already have SIP client built in to the phone. I can't say all devices have it, but it should be there on most phones running 2.3.4 or better. However, there is nothing that I am aware of built in to Android that will let you use SMS/MMS without an app.

    You do have to have a provider. There are literally tons of them out there!! My company actually resells to other companies (we don't do retail, sorry ) and I did try it on my phone. It works wells as long as you have a stable internet connection. For international calling, I used vBuzzer. No particular reason, I just did a search and they were one of the first ones to come up. You could shop for hours and compare prices, but they are all pretty close. And they are all pretty cheap.

    Some US carriers will let you use it over your phone's data connection. However, I wouldn't count on it lasting for long, as that gives customers a reason to get a nice phone with a data plan and they can't tie you in to a voice contract. Not good for business. I wouldn't plan on it as a replacement for your normal phone, but it does give you the option to lower your phone plan if you do most of your talking near a WiFi hotspot.

    Call > Internet call settings > Accounts (varies by device)
    - - Add Account
    - - Enter the information

    You are now ready to use your phone over a WiFi connection. This won't be the same phone number as your mobile phone. As I stated before, you have to get another provider for internet calling.

    They didn't lie to you, they just didn't explain themselves very well.
