Do you want

1. free calling to any number in US using your cell # (or GV #) without using minutes
2. excellent call quality
3. little battery drain?

Then try out Vonage Mobile app (it's free). It uses Google Cloud Messaging service (push notification) so even if the app is not running in background, it will wake up and ring your phone.

There are 2 drawbacks so this may not be a solution for everyone.

1. You can only receive calls from another Vonage Mobile user. It can't receive regular (PSTN DID) calls.
2. No android integration. It imports your contacts. If the number is not in your contacts, then you need to input the 10 digit # to make a call.

Overall, I recommend this to anyone on $30 Tmo prepaid plan and regularly talks to a small number of people (including iphone users),
