Because of this announcement you may need Google credit to make/receive calls outside the US Official Google Blog: Calling from Gmail now in 38 languages, with lower rates to over 150 destinations

So far people we know have been able to use the app without credit outside the US, it may be because their account was created in the US.

First of all - Thanks for a great product!

2nd - all your instructions & support has worked as described!

3rd - not sure if GV credit systems refreshed immediately but tested with my father calling from Vietnam to US & me calling him from US, & it appears no credits were deducted either way.

Will check tomorrow.
Sorry for being a bit unclear with the original question.
But basically it was mobile to mobile call internationally and GIP performed as advertised on both of our EVO's.

Thanks again!

No problem. Glad it worked for you. Our testers are also able to still make calls from overseas. My guess is it's only restricted if your account was originally created overseas.

Well I confirmed today & my father's Google Voice account was not charged for any International GrooveIP calls originating outside of the US.

Most excellent App - free Wifi everywhere!

Thinking about getting a Motorola Atrix 4G running Android 2.3. Does the app support the Atrix?

Yes. It's one of the phones we test and develop with. You'll have to change a few settings in the app. Like turn on echo cancelation and enable audio processing (under troubleshooting). We also increase the mic gain a bit too.

Hi, Just bought the app the other day and I love it but, I cannot receive calls. I can call out and the reception is perfect but no one can call me. I have a Optimus V rooted running the Bumblebee 2.4 Rom and all accounts are logged out.

Hi swann,

It is a great app! Glad it's working well for your outbound calls.

Did you consider searching this thread? See my post here for a possible solution. Are you able to answer calls with Google Chat on a PC?

Bad news - we may have run into some trouble with the outgoing calls/txt from Vietnam.

Just checked the online SPCS billing & noticed some international calls & text were being charged the exorbitant SPCS roaming rates.

I am trying to gather up the info & see what happen.
But on the surface, it appears that I can't originate calls from outside the US without being charged the domestic carrier rates.

Comments?

Only way the carrier would get notified of calls is if the calls went over their network and not over the app. The most likely way this could happen is for incoming calls. If you don't have them forwarded to google chat and they are forwarded instead to your cell number that would use your cell network.

GrooVe IP does not provide SMS, not sure what you are using for SMS. Easiest way to block the native system would be to put the phone in airplane mode and only enable the WiFi.

You are correct on the first point: the billings were only on Incoming calls as of now!
I just checked my father's account & calls were being forwarded to Google Chat, Sprint, & his home phone.

>>> Am I correct in assuming that I have to uncheck the Sprint & home options when traveling abroad?

Sorry about the SMS, they were going thru the native system. Guess I'll have to goto airplane+wifi mode.

Thanks.

He can use the official Google Voice app for SMS if he wants. That will send and receive SMS using his Google Voice number and uses the data connection only. Just set the Google Voice app to never make calls.

In his Google Voice account (google.com/voice) uncheck Sprint & home (if no one's home) when traveling abroad.

I'm having trouble with outgoing audio quality on a Nexus One. All of my testing is over wi-fi with a good DSL connection. I used an Obi100 with Google Voice before, so I think the Internet connection is OK.

I have to keep the earpiece volume high or I can't hear callers. I adjusted the mic gain down to -5 to reduce the echo the callers were getting. Now callers say I'm too quiet, and I'm dropping out on them. I've tried audio processing and echo cancellation, but they didn't seem to help the outgoing audio. Incoming audio seems to be OK no matter which settings I use. I think I may have adjusted some settings too far, and I need to start over.

What audio and troubleshooting settings work well on a Nexus One? If I want to reset Groove IP to its defaults, do I just uncheck everything under audio and troubleshooting and then set the speaker and mic gains to 0?

You can clear the app cache and data from the android application menu. That will reset everything to the default state. I'd recommend setting the keep screen alive checkbox if you're making calls over WiFi.

I have read through and I have seen people with the same problem but I haven't seen a solution to the problem. I have seen people with the same phone and it works for them and then some say it doesn't work. I will wait and see if snrb will reply and see what they say about the problem.

Are you able to receive calls when the screen is on? What happens when someone tries to call you?

I'm assuming you've forwarded calls to Google Chat already in your Google Voice account.

In version 1.2.4 you can try enabling the Partial Wake Lock in the troubleshooting settings.

This was an expensive lesson to learn. ~$200 in international roaming charges in 7 days out of 30 so far(@@!!).
Unchecking these options in our web GV account settings & going to airplane mode. Arghhh, I am so mad I didn't know about this before.

Thanks for the directions!

Just to add to this since my Dad just incurred $200 in roaming charges because we didn't follow the above steps when using GrooveIP overseas:

Turning on airplane will grey out all the Settings>Wireless & Networks>Mobile Data settings.

I cannot receive calls at any point whether the screen is on or not, I have set to stay awake. Yes, everything is set to forward and I'm signed out everywhere too. When someone calls it just rings on there phone and does nothing.

Did you ever have your account linked to a sip service like pbxes.org? If that link still exists calls could be going there. Do you receive calls in Google Chat when you log in to gmail on a pc?

This is the first time I have tried out a voip service. I cannot receive calls through anything-Google Voice or Groove IP. Now for some reason i cannot even call out with Google voice from the PC, I can still call out from my phone with Groove.

Have you completed the registration for a google voice number? Where they call you back and you enter a verification code? If calls aren't forwarded anywhere you'll likely have to contact Google Voice support.

Yea, when I signed up, I got the call and entered the number and everything went through.

If it doesn't even send calls to Google Chat when you log in on a PC then there's little I can suggest. You'll likely have to contact the Google Voice support to see why calls aren't being forwarded properly. Alternatively you can try creating a new gmail and google voice account to see if that fixes it.

Ditto. This is very disappointing. I can make free outgoing calls with GrooVe IP, but incoming calls use my minutes when Google Voice forwards to my T-Mobile number.

Ran over the last few pages and haven't seen this mentioned...

When I'm using this on wifi and get a text message, it disconnects my call. If it matters, I'm on a Nexus One on TMobile.

Hi snrb

Optimus V. - Virgin Mobile.

Is it better to use 'Partial Wake lock' and 'Keep Screen On' in the latest version GvIP settings, rather than the Advanced Wifi lock app ?
Can running them both cause issues?
Thanks in advance

Observation: I have generally found GvIP does not function well on VM's spotty 3G network. The other end can rarely hear me, ending calls is always a problem, I can't get the dialer screen to stay visible.
Using Wifi is the only way
Cheers Z.

Running them both should not cause issues. Multiple apps can always get the same lock.

Over 3G call quality is going to depend on the data connection. I know a few people who use the app fine over VM's network. But it all depends on the speed and stability of the network where you are.

Hi snrb,

In the past amazon does not always show a notification of an update so the only way to get it is to uninstall the app and then re-install the app and then see if they have the new version available. Could you start posting somewhere if possible what version Amazon actually has available being they always seem to run so far behind on updates, not sure why they don't post it like the maket. Maybe thats what makes them feel better then the market, who knows.


Thanks,
Shuttle

If you go on Amazon's website they have the version number listed. Currently they still have 1.2.3.

If you have 1 separate GV# & 1 TMO # then you just need to have the GV Chat option in the web settings checked.
No other # options should be checked there or forwarded to GV.

This will allow you to make/Recv calls via GIP via Wifi.

Do I really need to explain that the reason I have calls forwarded to my phone is because I do not have Wi-Fi available at all times..? I want GrooVe IP to handle calls whenever I have Wi-Fi, and I want to use my T-Mobile minutes when I don't. If I had Wi-Fi available at all times, then why would I even need a mobile phone service?

As furkansahin said, the GrooVe IP call screen does appear... for a few milliseconds before the native call screen appears over it. So GrooVe IP is effectively useless for incoming calls.

Not sure what help I can provide. On all of our test phones when we're connected to WiFi, GrooVe IP rings first. Then the native system rings. 2 seconds later the GrooVe IP screen comes back on top. Do you see the GrooVe IP notification bar change to a phone icon instead of the green circle? It could be something is blocking or killing our activity on your phone.

If the app is still signed in and receiving the call, I could make a change where the screen will always try and come back on top if it's not being displayed.

Probably not the answer you're looking for, but you could solve this issue with Tasker and the Google Voice plugin. When your wifi is connected, route to your Google Chat. When wifi is disconnected, route to your phone.

I just called my mobile phone from a landline >15 times, and I'm basically getting three different results.

#1 (this is the only behavior that I had witnessed before today)
I can sometimes see the GrooVe IP call screen briefly appear, but the native call screen appears over it. The GrooVe IP icon remains a green circle; it does not change to a phone. My Phone shows that I have missed a call -- but not that I have missed a GrooVe IP call.

#2
The call screens switch back and forth a couple times, but the native call screen ends up on top. The Groove IP icon changes to a phone. Two instances of my ringtone play simultaneously. My phone indicates that I have missed a GrooVe IP call.

#3
I get the desired result -- the GrooVe IP call screen appears, and everything behaves pretty much as expected.

I don't know why the behavior is inconsistent.

BTW, GrooVe IP crashes my phone during calls unless I tick the "keep screen on" option. But it seems to work fine when the screen is kept on.

OK, I may try that.

Just curious, which version of the app do you have?

I really don't appreciate your tone esp. when we are all trying to help you including me.

I think YOU are the one that is not understanding how to set & use this app.
So I am glad you are NOT getting results & the black cloud you live under.

I sure am getting what I need from this app. which is:

Free WiFi outgoing & incoming calls anytime, anywhere where WiFi available.
or Use my SPCS # when I don't want WiFi Calling. ha!

I'm sorry if I seemed ungrateful for your tremendously helpful advice to stop forwarding calls to my T-Mobile number, Sunshine. I guess I was "not understanding" that the way to use this app is to forward calls only to Google chat, give two phone numbers to everyone I know, tell people to call my T-Mobile number only when I don't answer my Google Voice number, and use two different numbers to check my voicemail. Is that how people do it underneath the rainbow in Overreaction Land?

Wow, I'm surprised that someone who is so much savvier than I am would make such a colossal mistake. If I was a petty, thin-skinned jerk, then I would probably say something like, "I am glad you did NOT get the results you wanted."

Please keep it civil. Don't want the thread getting locked or things to get too far off topic.

Default Issue "Failed to sign in to Google Voice".Network error: could not reach Google servers...Port 5222

Groove IP Version 1.2.4
Google Voice #? Y
Google Talk Signed Out? Y
Google Voice # with "Gmail" Address Y

Issue:
GTalk and GVoice work on PC's behind Corporate firewall
GVoice works over WIFI on my Optimus V behind Corporate firewall
Groove IP works on Home Wifi and 3G.
Given that GTalk is working behind the corporate firewall, then why can't Groove IP sign in to Google Voice behind the corporate firewall?
Thanks

The app requires port 5222 open. It's likely that port is blocked by your corporate firewall. Gtalk can use port 443, we found we were not able to use that port, only port 5222 worked.

I have an HTC inspire 4g rooted. I can call out, sound quality is not an issue. When I receive a call i get the missed call notification and voice mail notification but will not ring first. I can send and receive text messages through Google voice still. Any thoughts?

Try the partial wake lock in the troubleshooting settings. That may help. Are you using WiFi? Have you forwarded calls to google chat in your google voice account?

I am on wifi with no phone service. I also forwarded calls to google chat, tried the partial wake lock. Still just notifications. I set up my google voice account with a different phone number than was originally used on the phone(using my gf's cell number in gv). Would that matter?

Does it work when the phone screen is on? Many phones put the wifi or cpu into a power saving mode when the screen turns off. HTC phones in particular put the Wifi into a power saving mode when the screen turns off.

Doesn't matter what number you used to setup, as long as calls are forwarded to google chat

Phone screen is on. I disabled power saver in settings. It was going straight to voice mail, now it rings for 30 seconds then to voice mail.

The phone itself is set up with a different gmail account than the one I use for gv but I am logged onto groove with the correct one.

Have you ever had your account linked to a sip service like pbxes.org? Could be calls are still going there. If you log in on a pc do you get the call in gmail?
