Android :: How Reliable Is The Google Voice Service

Sep 23, 2010

GV was working well for me for several months. But in the last month, most of the GV calls that I've made have not gone through. I use it mostly from the desktop and when I start a call my phone usually does not ring.

Android :: Google Voice - How Reliable Is It?

May 17, 2010

Just ordered my Motorola Droid (yay!) - should be in my hands tomorrow.

I am absolutely going to use my Google Voice for texting (hey, its free). I'm considering using it as my primary number too.

My question: How reliable is Google Voice w/ texting and calls? Any reason NOT to go ahead this route?

I was always going to use it for text (I understand they are instant now), but for ease of communicating w/ my friends and family I'm also considering giving out my number for calls as well.

Android :: Does Google Voice App Need To Be Running For The Service To Work

Jun 19, 2010

I've never quite understood the connection. If you have a Google Voice phone number set to forward those calls to your cell phone, do you need to have the app running on your cell phone for this to work or can it be manually turned off?

I would imagine that the call forwarding would work regardless, but what about the app keeping track of those calls in a call list, or keeping track of the voicemails, etc.? Can you just open the app manually and all of this information will be there, or does it need to be running at all times in order to record the phone calls/voicemail as they come in?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Google Voice / Cancel Service Afet Sign Up?

Jan 9, 2010

I just got my invite to Google voice and I was super excited, but then I found out there were some issues with Sprint playing nice with GV. I have a couple of questions for any of you using GV with sprint network. FYI, I have the any mobile any time plan. Questions:
1. I understand that sprint treats GV as a landline call, does this mean that it will eat my minutes with every call? also, is there a workaround for this? 2. should I get a google number or keep my number 3. if i get a google number can people still call my old number? 4. I read a lot about call forwarding and some *28 and *73 options, but i couldn't wrap my head around what to actually do. I know sprint dropped some 20 cent charge, but I also read that in some situations that charge still applies. 5. can you cancel out of the service after you have signed up.

HTC Desire :: How To Make Google Navigation More Reliable?

Jun 22, 2010

Need some advice, google maps and navigation never quite takes me to the right place, close too it but never quite there. Now near location is okay for something free, but its usually that last wee bit that you need more than anything, instead of you coming to an estate and it tells you its on the left hand side, which is the whole estate. I read in a thread here someplace about another free sat-nav that Im sure was for another phone type, but then someone in one of the other phone forums gave everyone a link into that forum to show how it works. Anyone know what I am talking about ? (most folks never do and they know me lol) or anyone know how to make the google navigation more reliable?

Android :: Use Google Voice For Text And Voice

Jun 16, 2010

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?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Google Voice Voice Mails Only Play Through Speaker Phone?

Jul 29, 2010

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.

Motorola Droid :: How To Set Google Voice / Version Voice Mail?

Jan 23, 2010

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...)

HTC Droid Eris :: Need 2.1 Bugs With Google Voice / Google Listen?

May 16, 2010

I have searched around for an answer to these two issues, but haven't been able to find anything. After doing the manual upgrade to 2.1 OTA, most everything is fine. However, Google Voice and Google Listen are having issues. Google Voice is giving me a Force Close message every time I receive a text message in Hand cent SMS (to my non-GV number). I don't actually use GV on my voice all that often. Google Listen seems to have lost all trace of any of my pod casts, including new ones that have come in since the update. Every episode on every pod cast has, just under the title: "Error (sd card/com.goggle.android.apps.listen/downloads/e55bee71)" The string of letters and numbers on each one is different. I used Astor File Manager to look in this folder and each of those files is not there. Some of these folders were downloaded a month ago (I'm a little slow in getting to some pod casts) and some I have listened to already pre update but still getting the error now. Some that I have listened to are not giving the error. And any that were downloaded after the update are giving the error.

General :: Enable Google Voice Forwarding On Google Hangouts?

Mar 2, 2014

Would it be possible to add a line of code to the Google Hangouts app on Android to receive forwarded Google Voice calls as it does on the iOS app?

There's been apps like Groove IP that are already able to provide this feature. I'd just like to have this functionality without having to install any 3rd party apps that always have to be running in the background. Google Hangouts is already the primary sms app for Android & so it is already able to receive texts, mms, along with video and voice chats. Thus, it should be somewhat possible to receive call forwarding from Google voice.

Samsung Captivate :: Google Voice Without Google Numbers

Jul 26, 2010

I am using Captivate on the AT&T network and looking into goggle voice. Since the main feature I am interested in (for now) is the visual voice mail, I was thinking of getting the option without the GV number and therefore, keeping my cell phone number. I have several questions:
1. Does this work well with the Captivate phone?
2. Is there any delay in getting the voice mails by going through GV?
3. Does this eat into my data plan at all? Currently, I am only on the 200 mb plan per month.
4. If I try to get text messages through GV, would that not use up my data plan and instead come through my Internet connection ( which could at times be free if I am in a WiFi zone)?

Could be a coincidence, but it appears it started happening right after I did the PRL update (*228). I have voice and text, but no email/pandora/weather bug/market. All I get is 'network error...I have done another *228, rebooted several times and did a battery pull.

HTC Incredible :: Google Talk With Google Voice

May 12, 2010

I was wondering if anyone has been using Google Talk exclusively for SMS and ditched their texting w Verizon all together. I mainly ask as I am curious how reliable it is as a replacement for SMS. I'd love to cut my phone bill by $20 a month. My friend (5-6 months ago) said he was having issues w Gtalk in regards to some msgs not sending, or he never actually received them to his phone. He had issues with his N1 on Tmobile. Is anyone still experiencing similar problems? My SMS MUST function and be completely reliable as I use it constantly to communicate with my managers.

General :: Restricted Access Changed - Voice Call Service Blocked

Jan 8, 2012

I purchased a Chinese Android mobile which has the MTK6573 chipset. It is called a Star A3.

Love the phone however I regularly see the alert/error "Restricted access changed" in the status bar and the signal drops off both SIMS. If I pull down the status bar and check details it says "Voice call service blocked".

What is interesting is that it is always the Vodafone NZ SIM card even if I swap cards between SIM slots. Other SIM is 2Degrees.

I've searched the internet but there seems very little info on this subject other than to say that some HD9 users have had the same issue and have Spice Mi 350n users.

It could be a IMEI issue but I'm not so sure.

I've turned off my SIM data connection which was linked to my 2Degrees SIM and now both SIMS manifest the same error. If I re-enable data on the 2Degrees SIM only the Vodafone SIM gives the error ***

Android :: Better Google Voice SMS App?

Jun 10, 2010

Is there a better app that would allow me to send SMS messages through Google Voice than the default one? I have a number of issues with the Google provided app:

* It doesn't thread correctly. It will randomly create a new thread for messages with the same contact
* I can't send to multiple people simultaneously
* I'd like to see a popup when I get a text, even when the screen is locked

Are there other apps that let me do this through the Google Voice service?

Is there a different voice synthesiser that can be used for google maps navigation? To start with her mispronunciations and bizarre inflections were a source of amusement but now it is doing everyone's head in. I think I'd rather have Stephen Hawking than this deranged ladybot.

Android :: Google Voice Apps

Jun 22, 2010

I just got a Google Voice number and had a few questions to ask the experts among you:

1. I understand that it's possible to make free phone calls (meaning, I don't use my anytime minutes) from my Android cell phone using Google Voice and a wifi connection. I also believe that it's necessary to download an app in order to do this (for example, GV Dialer, GV Mobile, GV Callback, etc). Is it necessary to download one of these apps to make free phone calls, or am I mistaken and I can just do this using the Google Voice app? If it's necessary, which app do you think is best? If it's not necessary, what's the advantage of downloading these apps?

2. What's the difference between making free phone calls using wifi and Google Voice versus using, say, Fring or any similar apps out there (other than the additional functionalities of Google Voice, such as call forwarding, etc)? Are there advantages to one over the other?

3. This may sound like a naive question but does this technology (free phone calls using wifi) work while driving or must I remain in one location with a wifi connection?

4. I text and call overseas. Are there ways to text and/or call overseas for free using any of the above mentioned apps?

Android :: Google Voice For Voicemail Only

May 19, 2010

Just got G-Voice and at this point, all I want to do is use it for visual voicemail. During setup, it asked me if I wanted to use my carrier's service or Google's service. I chose Google at which point I had to call a provided number that seems to initiate forwarding?

Anyway, just wondering what would happen if I choose Verizon's service instead of Google? Do you still get visual voicemail?

Android :: Is There Dialer Just For Google Voice?

Oct 25, 2010

i have a google voice number and i installed google voice on my droid with android 2.2 but it dosnt do what I want it to do.I want a dialer that is only used to make calls from my google voice number. I know you can setup google voice to:

-to make all calls from GV

-to make only international calls from GV

-make no calls from GV

-ask if you want to use GV (before every call)

I dont want any of these. I want my normal dialer to use my normal number and whenever I want to make a call from GV I want to click on an APP and have a dialer appear and any calls from that dialer are made with the GV number.my BB worked this way. I would click on GV and then start dialing and it made the call with GV.
