  • Make Free VoIP Calls from Google Voice

    Some pretty big news out today posted on Engadget:

    Link: Google Voice now open to the American public

    That was interesting, but Gizmodo followed up with this:

    Link: Make Free VoIP Calls from Google Voice

    I have used Skype some for VOIP on random occasions, but they charge if you want to call land lines or cell phones. And they make you buy a set amount, like $10 worth of credit. I have had like $8 still sitting in my Skype account for 2 years now.

    But with the Google Voice setup being free, it might convince even more people to dump their land line for good.

      Except that if you do it from your cell phone, it still takes airtime.

        That was my first-glance impression too, Damonte. But the point of this particular setup is that you need a cellphone only to receive the verification sms from Sipgate. Once that's done, you only need your internet connection and a headset.

            I'm aware of what the article is saying.

            I want Google VOIP on my cell phone. My cell phone is my computer.

              Ugh, I have been using the free VOIP for a year now!! Pick a local number as your Google number this way you don't get dinged for long distance on your call.

              Also another positive is, not even Vonage cannot compare to Google when it comes to overseas to most places. So the combination of free stateside and cheap overseas is the ticket. I have 3 Google Voice accounts and actually use them to route all my business calls for my company as well. Save me hiring a employee from answering the phone in the office, I get the call whenever and where ever....

                Gizmodo is having some problems with pics on their site right now, but they just posted a good follow up article;

                Some, like the unlimited cellphone mins looks interesting, and the tweak to get it on your iphone.

                  of course, if anyone in Canada was wondering:

                  "
                  Google Voice is not available in your country.
                  Thanks for visiting Google Voice. We're not yet open for users outside the US, but are planning to expand our service to additional countries in the future. "

                  Odd considering the Gizmodo article says US & Canada. Way to get my hopes up :(

                    They certainly charged call land lines. Google voice is definitely the best alternative for voip. Through this, you can definitely save money unlike the standard calls that we've used.
