I have mine set up and working, but my setup may be a little bit complicated. So I'll preface by saying that somewhere I saw an article on how to set up Nexus S. Perhaps in this forum, so look around.
1) I bought an existing membership in Gizmo5, which was acquired by Google and no longer accepts new members, on Ebay. This membership includes a SIP number, which looks like a phone number, but isn't. I funded the account with $10.
2) I have a free Google Voice account, which gives me a legitimate phone number. I attached the Gizmo5 account to the GV account, so that when the legitimate phone number is called, GV looks for any device with the Gizmo5 SIP number.
3) I entered the Gizmo5 SIP number and other parameters into the N1 (Gingerbread), and set it up via Phone and other settings. It works fine. I called a phone number the US from Argentina recently - 17 cents deducted from my Gizmo5 account for 17 minutes.
Another approach, not going through the N1 Phone app, might be to simply use Skype. Pretty cheap when you call a phone.
If you're rooted and have CM7 and are on T-mobile, then you can flash the Wifi Calling app.

Works great for me.

Nexus One: Locked and Rooted
Not rooted. Maybe ill go to my TMobile store and ask what they do for their 4g phones that already have this.
Bump. No luck at tmo. Any ideas?
Anyone have a solution or ideas that can help?
If the above approaches are too messy, there's always a basic solution:
1) Get a SIP account from some provider, such as Sipgate
2) Set up your phone via Settings->Call Settings->Internet Call Settings
Your IP phone number will not be the same as your Cell number.
