Gingerbread comes with a cool SIP / VoIP integration. However, this feature drains the battery quite a bit.

So I'm looking for a shortcut to enable SIP. So far, I always have to go deep into Settings to disable/enable it.

Is there a cool shortcut, widget or app which helps to enable/disable the native SIP/VoIP-Feature of Android 2.3?

From where you have got in-built SIP client? – Evil Angel Apr 2 '12 at 17:56
It's part of Android, IIRC since 2.3. – Bob Jun 26 '12 at 16:12's not. Either you're using custom ROM or it's OEM's work.. – Evil Angel Jun 26 '12 at 16:16
It is. I've got stock ROMs in HTC Desire S and Samsung Galaxy Nexus S, and both have SIP functionality. See also here: – Bob Jun 26 '12 at 16:20

As I did not find any suitable solutions I decided to write my own widget.

It's available on Google Play:

I also made the source code available:
