    Anyone have a procedure down for making and receiving Google Voice calls without using plan minutes? From what I can find on the subject, it seems it needs to be tied into sip and have some sort of call back for the outgoing. I want to be able to do this over wifi.

    It is a paid app, but the developer is very open to feedback and posts on androidcentral:

    Excellent tip - I certainly dont mind paying for the solution. Does anyone have experience with GrooVe IP and can tell if it works well?

    I wonder if this would work on wifi it the phone wasn't active? This would give me an extra "google voice" handset at home.

    Edit - looked at the original post and it wont work. Google voice doesn't work over wifi only.

    The app I linked will to will certainly work over wifi only, I've used it successfully that way.

    There are ways, based upon setting up your GV correctly.

    You will need a Friend/Family plan (Sprint@Home add-on or Pick 3/5 will work). You'll also need a calling program (GV CallBack will work; it's on the Market). GV CallBack automates the process.

    Set your GV number as your Fav or Sprint@Home number. You then need to tweak your GV settings to ensure Call Screening and GV as your Caller ID. There is a reason for all this, mostly having to do with having your GV show up when folks call you.

    I can go over each one if you like.

    This works for free calls using Google Voice.

    I bought the GrooVe IP app this morning - although there are a few things that may need a bit of tweaking or improved by the developer, it seems to work pretty well.

    Not quite sure what a previous poster meant by "wifi only", but it certainly works well with wifi.

    gabbott: Thank you very much for the tip.
