I have seen this asked in other forums but my question is directed at Sprint only. I will be using the Everything data plan paired with my new Evo. I have GV currently and want to start giving out that number when I make the switch to Sprint. Will Sprint be charging minutes for dialing out through GV like other carriers are doing or are the GV numbers recognized as cell numbers?
Any help is appreciated.

When you dial out using GV on an android phone it dials a regional access number to route your call. So outbound GV calls would be seen by Sprint as a landline call.
When someone calls you on your GV number and you answer it on your cell, that incoming call as far as sprint is concerned is just from the originating number, so no change at all with incoming calls.

I called and spoke with the Account Services department and told them I wanted to add pick three on my acct or I would not be able to stay with sprint ( I was within my 30 days ). They added it with no problem, but it does cost $5 a month. So I added my google voice access number to my pick 3 and now I have unlimited out going calling.

Because on android, when you dial out with GV it dials an access number. That is the number you'd need to add to your pick 3, NOT your GV number, unless you plan on manually calling your GV number and making calls that way.

Thanks for the info thus far.
This may be a silly question but how do I find out the correct number to add so I can do this the way you are suggesting?
This could really make or break the whole GV experience for me...

This is a good question. Is the pick 3 still an option or has it been discontinued? I have tried searching on this forum and others and can't seem to find any solid answer.
Spring to home would be a valid option though right?

I've got it but I've been a customer for about 11 years and had to go through their Account services group to get it and if I ever want to make changes to the number have to go through that group. I was able to get it at no charge to all the lines on my account but others have reported they had to pay a fee for it.
