    Talking *** how does google voice work -- problem for over a year ***

    Ok, so i just signed up for google.com/voice#inbox and that was easy. when you click on 'call' it has 'Phone to call with' and under that it has 'google talk' or 'mobile'

    i tried calling jetblue 800-538-2583 when they're open with both options and neither worked -- this also happened the first time i tried it last year

    i thought it would just work... like skype.. or other Voips

    do you need a plugin or something? or do you need to download the google talk thing on windows 7?? the number attached to the google voice number is from t-mobile service if that matters



    thanks for your brilliance in helping

    Download the Talk plugin for the desktop to make calls from PC within your browser. Go in settings and add your mobile number as a forwarding phone to receive Voice calls on your mobile.

    i'll dl the Talk plugin for the desktop again but i think it still didn't work last time

    mobile is already a forwarding number upon signing up your number

    actually i alreaady had gogole talk plugin for desktop because i read on the Web that you should install it; well it's still not working

    it says the installation date is 2/21/13 so it must've updated by itself

    i read on the Web the other day that window's UAC, user account control, may be blocking it, which solved it for someone else

    but tried it with the UAC at the lowest setting and nothing

    highest setting and the UAC doesn't give any popup or notification that google talk is doing anything evil, and nothing from the comodo firewall either

    maybe a window service needs to be on? or i should change something else?
