Would there be any way to set this up to only call/answer using VOIP for certain numbers(or landlines) and use regular phone for the rest?

I'm on sprint, any calls are free except to landlines.

There is a manual set up for it. Basically, set up a trunk as a SIP trunk, and change the "sip://" to "GMAIL://" I think. Some google-fu will get you the article I came across.

Do you have Google Voice installed? It's needed for the initial setup with pbxes.org and Google Voice tie-together.

lexluthor i sent you a message u never answered me i figured it out on my own but plz help me on this one, so i can get it to ring as long as a regular phone does and if u can help me on the bluetooth situation that would be great also thx all hope to hear some feed back. and thx for putting this up its the best!!!!!
Are you trying it on Wifi or over 3G? 3G is dicey at best.

I was just reading this page:

It says that "Starting today all paid users may register their Google Voice trunks from their PBXes... [cont.]"
Does this mean this will not work unless I am a paid user for PBXes?
Nah, it'll still work (At least it does for me). Is your ring pattern set up correctly in PBXes? It's kind of tricky to get it set up, but for basic you have to have at least one extension, and add that extension to your ring group.

But, according to this, you MUST have Google Voice (The official one from Google) installed: Issue 753 - sipdroid - No menu option appears for google voice/pbxes setup after a clean install - Project Hosting on Google Code

Hm... I've had that on 3G, but not Wifi, unless my wifi signal is really weak.

In google voice, is you timeout set to the max (60 seconds I think is max)?

Actually, it's in pbxes.org. Under your ring groups, in your ring group <1> there is "Max ring time". Make sure that is set to 60.

Also, in your inbound routing, make sure it's set to "Force Regular Hours".

I have a Droid Incredible thru Verizon and Google Voice...how do I forward my incoming calls to my Google Voice #?

Thanks!

I have made an outgoing call over WiFi using Siproid and Google Voice. It's pretty good quality.

I'm going out of the country next month and will be staying somewhere where there's free wifi. Has anybody successfully made a phone call using Siproid, Google Voice from out of the country back to the states? Are there any extra steps since you're calling from out of country? I'm guessing not. Really looking forward to having this available to make calls back home.

From what I have gathered, it is possible to forward your cell number to GV (which will in turn forward to all phones - including your cell), but it is not advised. The ring would be very long and it would be like 9 rings before you even hear it or something along those lines. There are other problems I have read about, such as problems where SMS or text messages never make it through the forwarding process. (Might want to read through this as well before you try it: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/voice/thread?tid=7c63838aae334fe3&hl=en ) You might take this opportunity to just start gradually shifting everyone you know over to your GV number so everyone starts calling it instead, and you can make sure GV always forwards to your cell/etc other numbers in the future (this is the route I am working on taking). Also, there IS a way to port your current cell number over to become your new GV number. If you do that, you will be able to set up GV to forward to all your phones and everyone can call your regular number. Of course, I have heard that if you port your number from an active verizon acct it can cancel your contract and leave you with an early termination fee (if that applies).

About the WiFi calling: As long as you are using a VOIP connection going over WiFi it will be as if you are still in the states (but don't have cell service). You can test this out by going on your phone and setting it to "Airplane Mode". After that, go turn on WiFi connection and make a call. You will see that Airplane mode stays enabled even if you just turn on WiFi. This way you have completely turned off your cell service and you can ensure that you are making a call via WiFi connection instead of 3G or over your cell service. When you have your cell service turned off, you can do the test as if you are in a different country without cell service. All you will need is a WiFi connection. Don't worry about GPS, the phone will not check your GPS to ensure you are in the states. To put this short, there are not any extra steps when you are out of the country (as far as I know), and it should work fine. I will say that I have never made a WiFi call out of the states but I have read many posts about VOIP on Android and I have come to this conclusion.

Google voice is currently unavailable to Canada.

Although, if I connect through a proxy and register my google voice account anyway. Do you think I could use it with my phone? Or it will detect that I'm not in the US and won't allow me to use it?

I'm not sure if it works but try this:
How to: Google Voice Outside the US | wifitalk.ca
Otherwise I have heard of people buying GV accts on ebay.

You set the max ringtime to 60 secs, and calls still do not go through? If so, set up two SIP phones on pbxes.org; and try calling between them to make sure you are configured correctly there.

I guess it's either "Works 100%" or "Fails 100%" with the automated setup

Also, pbxes.org has a forum, where the owner and several staff are on there consistently

I think the only way to forward your cell number to your GV number is to contact VZW, and set up the forwarding. In fact, I am about 99% sure this is the ONLY way to do it.

The best way is to just hand out your GV number instead of your actual cell number (Or home, etc). This way, you can let GV do what it does best: Make people able to hunt you down, with a single phone number.

What two boxes?

Gizmo5 has a already-built interface to Google Voice...

HTC Evo...

Okay, so I got it this to work (Google Voice number and SIPDROID), didn't really encounter any hassles, except for having to go to the Google Voice site settings to forward my Google Voice number to the address assigned to Google Chat. Works like a champ for incoming and outgoing calls.

One big question: will this work outside the continental US? Has anyone actually done this?

I am going to Germany next month, and have a Sprint phone (HTC EVO on CDMA), I need to know whether or not I need to add funds to my Google Voice... At the Google Voice site settings, it says funds are not necessary in the US or Canada, but is needed for international calls.

I'd rather not have to buy a prepaid disposable phone when I get there, if I'm going to have to jump thru hoops to make this whole thing work, I want to make sure it works as advertised... Not meaning to sound like a jerk or anything, as I really do appreciate all the feedback everyone's left so far.

You'll have to go through the "Lost Password" procedure at pbxes.org to get your login information.

Your pbxes.org user name and password will be for the following:

Sipdroid --> Menu -->Settings --> SIP Account (First one):
Authorization Username: {your pbxes.org user name}
Password: {your pbxes.org password}
Domain: {Don't change}
Username or Caller ID: {your extension name, usually pbxes.org username + ext number, ie PSKeptic-200)
Place a tick in "Use 3G" and "Use EDGE" (WARNING: This will cause phone call time to be applied to your data usage, NOT minutes)

You should be all set.

Nothing in Google Chat. In Google Voice, you have to set Google Chat as a forwarding "number".

I didnt lose my password it's just not giving me a place to log in only create an account because I had sipdroid deleted it then reinstalled it. How do I get into the menu for sipdroid? All I show are two lines that say Phone number and called party address.

Well I can grasp pretty much the whole write up but one part that seems it should be easy but I'm stumped on. I've had google voice for ages now but I can't see where my google chat (inside gmail when I log on via firefox) phone number is different. They are the same. I called my cell phone via google chat and the caller id says the same number as my google voice. So I proceeded to put that number in the forward section of my google voice and like I guessed it said...um no you can't do that.

So my hang up now is how can I find/change my google chat number to be different that my google voice so I can forward it and move on with the rest of this? I'm usually pretty savvy with this stuff so I'm irritated with myself for not being able to figure this out. Thanks in advance for any help =)

Well on my Sprint Galaxy Tab, bought and used in the US, I got it all up and running! I'm not sure what I did to make the forward option for google chat to show up on my list of options in google voice...lol but it's showed up and it's working like a charm! Phone service was the one thing that keeping the tab from being perfect in my eyes =) Thanks to the OP for getting this up for us! I completely <3 you!

The ring would be very long and it would be like 9 rings before you even hear it or something along those lines. There are other problems I have read about, such as problems where SMS or text messages never make it through the forwarding process. (Might want to read through this as well before you try it: Top 10 Reasons NOT to forward a phone TO Google Voice - Google Voice Help ) You might take this opportunity to just start gradually shifting everyone you know over to your GV number so everyone starts calling it instead, and you can make sure GV always forwards to your cell/etc other numbers in the future (this is the route I am working on taking). Also, there IS a way to port your current cell number over to become your new GV number. If you do that, you will be able to set up GV to forward to all your phones and everyone can call your regular number. Of course, I have heard that if you port your number from an active verizon acct it can cancel your contract and leave you with an early termination fee (if that applies).

About the WiFi calling: As long as you are using a VOIP connection going over WiFi it will be as if you are still in the states (but don't have cell service). You can test this out by going on your phone and setting it to "Airplane Mode". After that, go turn on WiFi connection and make a call. You will see that Airplane mode stays enabled even if you just turn on WiFi. This way you have completely turned off your cell service and you can ensure that you are making a call via WiFi connection instead of 3G or over your cell service. When you have your cell service turned off, you can do the test as if you are in a different country without cell service. All you will need is a WiFi connection. Don't worry about GPS, the phone will not check your GPS to ensure you are in the states. To put this short, there are not any extra steps when you are out of the country (as far as I know), and it should work fine. I will say that I have never made a WiFi call out of the states but I have read many posts about VOIP on Android and I have come to this conclusion.
OK, I have turned the phone to Airplane mode & turned the WiFi on to make a successful call via Sipdroid & Google Voice. (I called a friend's phone & my Google Voice # showed on his Caller ID.) My next question is how can I get my phone to ring when someone calls my Google Voice # when it's in Airplane Mode & Wifi on? I've tried dialing my GV # several times when it's set up that way but it just goes to my Google Voice Mail. I'm guessing there's a setting I need to fix. Thanks for your help!

i have a samsung fascinate on verizon. i already have GV set up but never used it.

i cannot get this to work.

i am to use the sipdroid to dial out, correct?
i put in a number (it pulls up my contacts) but then tells me it's not a valid number. so i added a 1 before the area code (it's a local number) and then it's just silence. no ringing or anything, just acting like it's an open call.

so i took away the area code and 1 and just dialed the number and then it just hangs up right away.

i have both my cell # and gchat as forwarding for the GV#.

any ideas?

I finally got this working and it works flawlessy. Here are the steps.

1. Create or already have a google voice account.

2. Download sipdroid latest verion.

3. Register your pbxes account with sipdroid. It's built in and pbxes adds gv as a trunk and gives you voip. If you want to manually enter your sip info it. Do this

Open sipdroid and hit the settings button on your phone.
Go into the first sip box and enter your sip info.
Username yourname-200
your pbxes pw
server pbxes.org
domain leave empty
username caller id leave empty
port 5060
protocol tcp
Check whatever internet options you want to use. I have them all checked.

4. Make a call it should work.


Only problem I am having is getting calls I think i have to go into my pbxes account and add an inbound service. Anyone know exactly how to do that with GV?

To enable incoming calls, in your google voice settings you need to forward calls to your google chat (ie google account email address). I can receive and make calls and txt and transcribed voice mail txt using only my data plan via both 3G or Wifi as I have a data only plan/ sim with talk time disabled.

THIS was what I was missing. Once google chat was checked for forwarding I could finally receive calls. Thank you all for the input. Yes send and receive calls even in airplane mode. I love it!!!

Bingo! This answers the question I had on my previous post. Went into my Google Voice page..hit 'Settings' on the top right of the page...selected 'Voice Settings'..then checkmarked the previously unchecked box next to 'Google Chat'. I placed a call from a landline to my Google Voice # and the call went thru on my phone. Like you said--now I can both receive incoming calls to my GV# & make outgoing calls in Airplane Mode over WiFi!

For some reason (& I'm not complaining), the caller ID does not pull from my contacts stored in the phone. The number I called from to my GV# was my work # which is stored in my cell. It just showed the actual # w/ a 1 in front of it. I'm not worried since I can recognize most #'s that call me w/out the name showing.

The instructions to enable google chat were in my original post.

If that was unclear, please suggest how to edit it and I'll be happy to do so if it can help others.

Lexluthor,

Your original quote,

You might need to go into google voice->voice settings->phones and make sure you have a google chat account there and that it's enabled for forwarding.

Maybe I'm a little slow but for some reason this did not sink in. I guess I thought I HAD to forward to my cell number only.

Maybe you should have said, "IF YOU WANT TO RECEIVE CALLS TOO, YOU MUST HAVE GOOGLE CHAT ENABLED." Sometimes I only respond to bold and or yelling. Thanks again for the great information!!!

I have the original setup the OP was talking about.. but apparently it's much simpler now.

My question however is this.. with the new configs.. is there anyway to make it so the calls come through your actual headset.. or bluetooth.. and not through the phone speaker.. so it's not like you are always on speaker phone?

also.. if anyone had the old setup. How is the lag between talking now? with my current setup there is about a 5 second lag on 3g.. and about a 1.5s lag on wifi.. also the caller hears themself echoing with a lag. Did this get fixed?
