Can Google Voice be used to make phone calls and how?

Post by n1nj4ofshr3d »

When I try to make a call, it just stops as soon as soon as I press it.
Has anyone got this to work? Or are there other apps that I can download to make calls?

There is Fring - it was preloaded on my Archos 70IT. You can use it to make phone,video calls and to chat.

In addition there is Skype - it should work if you use a compatible headset... don't know exaclty as I never tried this for myself.

I use sipdroid (available in the android market) and if somebody calls me on my google voice number, sipdroid will "ring" on my A70s...

But, since I redid my system I seem to have lost the Android dialer (phone.apk) which would allow for dialing out with sipdroid straight from contacts... now I have to manually input the numbers in sipdroid... i found the phone.apk in root system/apps.old and installed it, but it FCs everytime... any setting that I should be aware of to get it working properly?
