One suggestion for the interface. For answer options, you should let the user know that "always use Groove IP" will use your mobile phone when a data connection is not available. I like that the feature is built in, but I didn't know it would do that until I tried. It could catch some people off guard, and they will end up with huge phone bills. Maybe even provide three options:
  1. Only use mobile.
  2. Only use Groove IP.
  3. Use Groove IP when possible and mobile when not.

Thanks again!

Edit:
I just noticed that the "Always use Groove IP" option doesn't function with android's built in dialer/contact list on my phone. It only works with Groove IP's contact list. If I dial from the android dialer, it will flash the Groove IP screen and close. When I select "Ask every time", it will provide the options of "Groove IP" and "Mobile Network" and will function correctly.

Wow thanks for that information. Didn't even think of what would happen when your data connection isn't there. Also didn't know the option was broken (will fix it in the next drop).

I guess I could go with 4 options
  1. Only use mobile.
  2. Only use GrooVe IP (call fails when not registered)
  3. Use GrooVe IP when possible and mobile when not.
  4. Always ask between GrooVe IP and Mobile

What do you think? I generally use Only use mobile at work and Always ask when I'm at home.
