Android :: Why I Get Calls To Google Voice On Bill?
Jan 15, 2010
Anyone know why I would get a lot of calls to my google voice number on my bill? I never actually call my voicemail. I always use the gv app to read the transcription of listen to the message play if I can't understand the transcription.
I have Google voice with my own cell #, not a GV #. But when I go to make a call with with the regular keypad or via GV there is no option to place the call with GV. When I go to GV settings the only options it has are never use GV, ask every time I place an international call, or use GV for international calls only. Never a mention of using GV for domestic calls. Anyone know why? Currently using Droid with 2.0.1.
Seems to be a big problem with Google Voice starting sometime last night. Outgoing calls from an Android phone are not working. The phone number dialed just rings and rings and is rarely ringing the other end. When it does ring the other end, it's showing the relay number, not the Google Voice number and when the person picks up, no one's there.Relay number is not letting me make calls with the google voice app.Google Mobile Help Current work around is to either call your Google Voice number directly and use it that way. Or use the web interface to call back. Still haven't found any confirmations from Google about this or if a fix is coming.
Whenever I have someone call my Google Voice number, it rings for a split second, then goes immediately to a missed call icon on my droid. It will then ring for another split second, and add yet another missed call. Every call coming to my number gets around 5 missed calls. The call from their end seems normal, as all they hear is ringing. On my end, I cant even answer the call because it vanishes right away.
I've got the google voice app installed and set to make all calls through GV but finding the phone app isn't making calls using GV. Anyone else running into this? Tried restarting the phone with no change.
I can text, receive text, and also receive calls from my Google Voice #.But when I try to make calls using my google voice # it keeps showing my actual phone number to the people I'm calling.I've set the phone to ask whether or not to use google voice or actual # and I've also tried the use google voice for all calls and I get the same results for both, it keeps calling from my actual #.Hopefully I'm making sense with my problem.
so i was playing w/my google voice, and now all my calls to my Cell number somehow go to my google voice number which is a different number then my cell number. I just want my calls to my cell to go to my cell voicemail but I can not figure out how to deactivate whatever I've done. Can anyone help?
After updating to 2.1 on my X10, I noticed that I cannot use Google Voice to make phone calls (either selecting "use Google Voice for all calls" or "use Google Voice for international phones). It seems that the issue has to do with the SE dialer. Is there a way to go to the stock generic Android dialer? If not, any other suggestions?
I would like to make some phone calls that do NOT appear on my Verizon phone bill. I have a DINC and want to call a cell phone. Both ends are in the US. I don't mind paying a service such as Skype. Is there a way to make this happen?
Looks like the new GV app gives each contact an individual number when calling out.This means that instead of being able to program one outbound number to my Fam and friends list and getting free outbound calls, I am now back to paying for my minutes used on each call, reguardless if it's GV or Standard.
Is there any way to make google voice calls to an international number (from the US to South Korea) for free using the Google Voice app on my Dx? How do I make sure Google Voice is making the call and that I am not being charged international fees?
I've done a bunch of searching on google and elsewhere on this in the past but have not seem to have found anything on the topic, but it came back on my mind today after making a call.
Almost [anytime?] I am speaking on the phone [with anyone?] I will intermittently get a "touch tone" sound blasted in my ear randomly. At first I thought it may have been because my ear/face was hitting a button on the screen, but this happens even when the keypad is hidden. The other odd thing is that it only seems to happen on MY end, the caller on the other end will *NEVER* hear it when I have asked.
I *do* use google voice for all my calls. I do not know if this happens outside of GV or if it has anything to do with it. Any ideas why this could be, or has anyone run into this issue?
Today it was in my mind because it was happening a LOT (every minute or so) when I was talking to one of my friends. I never took note about it happening more often with her vs. other people or not [honestly, I don't use TALK so much on my phone] but we had a longer conversation today and it kept happening randomly.
It's definitely coming through the headset and not out of the speaker (ie: it will drown out the voice on the other end), and I did disable all touch-tone sounds on the phone. It is the sound you would receive through a regular phone system through the headset, not a chinsy "beep" or something the phone itself would make, it's coming across the "line" but again only I am hearing it.
You get the number from Google voice and obviously you can make calls. Why can't you just cancel your voice and text plan and just keep your data package and use it like that? Will T-Mobile allow that?
I used to have the Instinct any when people would call or when I would get a text message my phone would say the name of the person calling out loud. Does anyone know if there is an app for the HTC EVO?
I finally changed the voicemail system on my Hero from Sprint's "visual voicemail" (which is misleading because it doesn't transcribe voicemails) to Google Voice. It's nice to see my transcribed voicemails now. However, when I actually want to hear them (if the transcription didn't work well), it only comes through the external speaker; the speaker on the back of the phone. I went into Google Voice settings and under "Voicemail Playback" I tried the only two options: "Play via Handset" and "Play via Speaker." Unfortunately, both play through the speaker phone speaker. How do I change it to the phone speaker? I also can't adjust the volume, so the whole world hears my voicemails through the external speaker.
Is there a program allowing you to record your calls (both sides) under android 2.1? What about one that modulates your voice in real time, the 1ghz cpu of a nexus should be sufficient to do that real time, right?
I changed the voice mail number from *86 (version default) to my Google voice number. This works when I am not answering the phone and I the caller gets connected to my GV account. But when my phone is not in coverage the caller gets my version voice mail. Appreciate if someone can correct my settings or suggest any app that does it. I am from Windows mobile world and missing those settings when you can define several settings for voice mail (unanswered, rejected, unavailable etc...)
I tried searching for the question I'm about to ask and didn't find any threads so here it goes. Can someone post the steps to setting up Google Voice as visual voice mail for the Captivate? I know it's probably something very simple but I just can't figure it out ( yes, I'm a bit slow ).
we're a group of students and trying to implement some kind of voice cryptography over a gsm connection (without modifing any gsm related codecs, we render pure audio which gets transmitted via gsm). Is it possible to initiate a voice call and transmit our generated audio signal (means bypassing the microphone as the primary audio source for that call)? I write this because I'm slightly worried after reading some posts on this list/group which states that the android.telphony APIs are private and can't be called from processes outside the the telephone subsystem.
I have a question and i am looking for an answer for a very long time.
I am trying to record audio when i call someone and when someone calls me.I am using phonestatelisteners and i am able to record audio from outside (my voice) when i call someone. however when somebody calls me it doesn't record my voice at all .
I am trying to record my voice. Even if somebody calls me. But it works only in one direction :( If i call it records my voice if somebody calls it doesn't record my voice. Do you know if this is possible ?
