Anyway to get one Google Voice account to play nicely with two phones using VoIP?

Two LG Optimus Android Phones. One Google Voice account. Anyway to get both phones to play nicely using sipdroid & GV as the outbound & inbound calling method?

I used these instructions on the first phone, and it works like a charm. However, when I try to do it on the second phone, I don't wanna make a NEW server (and even if I did, they wouldn't let me change what account it was associated to). I want to have it access the old one. I tried changing all of the settings I could find 'till they were the same between the two phones, and still no dice.

Anyone out there gotten this (or something that achieves the same results - using one google voice number to mostly transparently ring an Android VoIP number) to work?

Thanks in advance!

Oh, and I should point out that I have almost NO experiance with VoIP beyond using Vonage a few years ago. Never run Asterisk or anything like that.

Hmmm... Given the lack of answers, can someone at least confirm that this is not a workable solution?

OK, I've figured it out! At PBXes.org, there's a setting under the SIP extension for Device Options. Sipdroid creates a random 8 digit alphanumeric password. THIS needs to be carried over to the second instance of Sipdroid. I had been using my GV password in Sipdroid's configuration. So... problem solved!
