    I'm not sure of the cause of that, but I know there was an update a few days ago (Sept 25th?). Is that when it started acting strange? I didn't notice anything in the comments for the latest version or searching for similar issues in the last couple of days. My best guess would be something went wonky during the update and an uninstall/reinstall might fix it.

    Edit:

    Stumbled upon this review:

    They removed the ability to make outbound calls! If you have an old version of this app installed, DO NOT UPGRADE. They removed your ability to place an outbound call! You can only now send/receive text messages, or listen to your voicemail, from your Google Voice number. You can't place calls anymore! Unfortunate. The contacts screen, and the dialing keypad for manually entering the phone number you wanted to call, are simply GONE! Why did Google revoke this feature? I had paid money for it....

    I also stumbled across this tidbit of information:
    On August 27, 2013 it was reported that "Ram, Olson, Cereghino & Kopczynski LLP, along with Himmelstein Law Network, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Google, Inc. over an alleged defect in its “Google Voice” application for Android-based smartphones and iPhones which caused users to be billed by their cell phone carriers for international calls that were supposed to go through the Google Voice system at much cheaper international rates. The complaint alleges that users have reported incurring as much as $700 in excess cell phone charges as a result.

    And this on the app description:

    Make cheap international calls with your Google number. Send free text messages. Place calls and send text messages showing your Google number. Listen to voicemail and read transcripts.
    Currently only available in the US.IMPORTANT:
    - You must open Google Voice at least once after upgrading to route calls.
    - When using Google Voice for Android, both domestic and international calls are placed through a US-based Google Voice access number, and will use the standard minutes from your cell phone plan.

    It could be what the previous poster noted, or it could be a continuation of the problems that Google has been having with Gmail, Drive and other services. You can check their status page to see if that's the case.

    Angry Re: Google Voice Not Working Anymore

    I've been a GV user for years? Anyway, I recently loaded the GV Phone app on my Sammy Galaxy IV but oddly, every I attempt to use it, it says that it is unable to connect to the internet ? This is very strange because of course this smartphone has no problem connecting to the internet either via Verizon or via a local wifi connection, AND all of my other Google services on the phone work fine...?!

    What am I missing here?

    I have made several attempts to access GV via the internet and when I type in the URL I get absolutely nothing on my screen. A blank screen is what I am getting. What happeened to the website?

    My google voice stopped working a few days ago before I did the new update...I unroofed and updated to hopefully fix it but it still won't route calls through google voice. I have tried old version of the app so it is not the app...it is something else....

    The doesn't indicate any problems with Google Voice so I'm not sure what the problem could be. Sorry, I don't use GV to compare with you.
