Whoa, this thing even works over 2g! I didn't actually have a conversation, just listened to a pre-recorded message from best buy to test it. Not sure about actual conversational call quality, but its still cool that it sounds pretty good over 2g.
Are you guys just leaving the app on, or are you only turning the app on when you're making calls? For those keeping the app on, how's the battery life with the 3g on? On wifi I expect battery life to be pretty good, so I'm really only interested in results from leaving on the app with mobile data.

I had a little hiccup trying it out this morning. I couldn't get it to register. I finally had to login to Gmail through my phone's browser using the standard webpage interface, then the GrooVeIP symbol finally showed green.
I don't think this has anything to do with the GrooVeIP app, something to do with Gmail not syncing at the time. Just wanted to post how I got it working.

after comparing this app with skype, skype seems to have a more stable voice transmission with fewer drop outs. i tried calling my friend with groove and he couldnt even hear me, it would only transmit the last half of my statement. i did a comparison calling my landline and skype was the winner.
Google voice service without using your providers (VM) minutes
FREE service (-2.99$)
New app with relatively little features
voice drop outs frequently while speaking
Stable voice, reliable
APP is loaded with features
have to pay for a number which is extra ontop of the service
This app is promising, but i will hold off for a while until the devs have a chance to update and polish it. For now i will stick with skype.

TO be fair this app is brand new, skype has been around for a long time and has tons more people developing for their apps.
That said I think each person will get varying results as I called my GF earlier and she could hear me fine but when I called my old man he said it was delayed, but could hear me fine. Give this some time and Im sure it will be a great app. I like how the dev is communicating with us. Hoepfully he sees the optimus v and VM as a great source to gain followers and customers. And its proven some of us are die hard supporters of apps we just love (cough atk cough).

I think this may work. GrooVe IP | Facebook. It may not work, I was reading that you need to have a certain number of people like or follow you before it becomes a real page. I'm actually pretty surprised the people who have followed so far found the page. There's really not much there right now.

This app is awesome and works perfect! I've always wanted a simple, all in one solution for VOIP and this app blows Nettalk outta the water. I won't ever need to use it because I don't use any mins but will come in handy when my wife decides to upgrade to an Android and when out of the country.
My only suggestion would be an option to disable the notification icon in the taskbar always on & maybe smart dialing.

Also, just out of curiosity, why would you want the notification icon invisible? Without it there's really no way to know if your registered or not. Believe making it a toggle is already on our list, just never knew why someone would want it off.
