    So after googling around a lot I have found nothing. I found lots and lots and lots of people wanting to make VoIP calls from the droid, but I want to do the opposite.

    What I'm looking to do is have the droid run as a VoIP server, so that when my phone is at home, it can connect to my wireless, and my VoIP devices will connect to it and use the droid to make/receive calls.

    Does such a thing exist?
    If not, can it be developed? I can code, just havent done anything for the droid platform so I dont know what is and isnt possible.

    I was thinking something similar..

    A voip "trunk" client, so the local server can use the phone (3g) voice network for calls.

    Though a limited server would be nice (but not what I want)

    I am looking for the same, to be able to pick up a call on my home desktop phone when it comes in through the smartphone.
    Did you find anything?

    A trunk client? 3G can only handle 1 line at a time. Maybe as a 3G or 4G VoIP trunk client. But isn't that like using the end of an elephant's trunk as a feather duster? A dedicated Android (or Linux) device would be simpler, less restricted and a lot more powerful. (A single P7 can run a pretty large PBx all by itself [with a few hardware peripherals].)

    Not a trunk. When I am home I want my incoming calls on the android to ring on my home phone system (which is VoIP). So I can pick up the more comfortable home phone when receiving a call on the smartphone.

    I think GE or AT&T has a cordless system like that. Plug ther phone into the cradle and the cordless phones use the cellphone as their POTS connection.
