Does anyone have recommendations for a SIP VOIP provider?

Not sure what SIP is.. but Skype is quite nice for voip stuff?

*goes to look up SIP*

Edity: So after a very brief search I find it's to do with mobile communications. Hum. although the Skype site does say:

"Skype is jam-packed with great features to help you stay in touch with friends, family and co-workers, share your thoughts and views and find the information you need. You can use it on your computer and on both WiFi and cordless phones."

So it might still be useful

Thank you. Skype would normally be the logical choice, but it's proprietory and my hybrid landline/VOIP phone (the very lovely Siemens Gigaset S685IP) doesn't support it. sadly.

We've used Voiptalk from Teleappliant at work for that last few years and they seem pretty reliable and their pricing seems reasonable for a decent quality VoIP provider. You can sign up for free to try the service out (you appear to get an 056 incoming number these days, it used to be an 0871 one, and can buy call credit to make PSTN calls and make VoIp calls for free).
I've also heard Gradwell are OK although I think they're more targeted at the business market.

Skype was going to be my suggestion. But skype is blocked here in Oman, so I've been using vbuzzer. It works fine for me, although I don't know about sip..
