We don't have the Comrex Access, but do have the Telos Z/IP One.  I can tell you that Luci Live Lite sets up and connects nearly instantly with the Telos and works very nicely.  I've not tried it on a long connection yet, but for a short one, it's great.  Of course, you'll get better results using a proper microphone instead of the one built into your phone.  Also, be aware that Luci Live Lite is limited to G.722.  The benefit of Linphone is that it has the Opus Codec and it's FREE.  Luci Live Lite isn't very expensive, though.  The downside to Linphone is that it's actually just a SIP app designed for making phone calls and sending texts.  For that reason, it may not be as well suited for what you're wanting to do as Luci is.  Also, with either app, it would be worth turning all notifications off and putting it in airplane mode in terms of being able to accept calls.  Nothing like trying to do a remote and having it get interrupted by the announcer's phone getting a call.  I've not been able to get Linphone to work with the Telos so I'm merely speculating about this last concern.

Speaking of using a proper microphone, I'm liking the looks of the IK Multimedia iRig Pro DUO.  It works on all platforms and gives you the option of connecting two mics rather than one.  Would love to hear of others' experiences with it or other interfaces.

We have a shiny new Comrex Access Rack unit that I’m working on, and we are thinking about getting the official portable unit to go with it, but are holding off on that because I’ve seen a new unit being promoted from Comrex that I guess will be coming out soon. I’ve been working with Comrex and a local IT guy to try to connect with it via iPhone with the Linphone app, which Comrex recommends, and we’re trying to work out some roadblocks we’re running into. I will probably also get the “Luci Live Lite” app and give that a try soon. Aside from these tools, what other mobile units can be used to connect to the Comrex? Are there lower cost options that you’ve found?
