    Hi, I don't know if you have heard of the Sprint and GoogleVoice integration, but now you can use your sprint number as your GV number.

    Would Groove IP would still work if I use my sprint number as my GV number?

    Man this was the best $2.99 I have spent on anything in a long time. Does exactly what I was looking for. I have been making and receiving calls over wifi all day. At first, the person on the other end said they heard an echo. I played around with the microphone gain setting and now it's all good. Great app!!!

    Thanks! Glad the gain settings helped you. Just curious, what kind of phone are you using? And can you tell me what values you used for the mic gain / speaker volume. Trying to build up a list of recommended values for phones.

    I haven't tried it, but don't see why it wouldn't work. For incoming calls to work in GrooVe IP you'll have to forward calls to Google chat.

    This is an update for the post I did earlier about Sprint-Google voice integration and Groove IP functionality. Well I played for a while with Groove IP using my sprint number as the google voice number. It worked. But I noticed that when the Groove IP app wasnt actived I would not recieve any calls. The problem is that I have to select forward calls to Google Chat only in order for Groove IP to work, and since my sprint and google voice number where the same if I do not select the option forward calls to my sprint number (even though they were the same number) when not using GrooveIP, I will not be receiving any calls to my phone. So every time I would like to not use GrooveIP I would have to connect online and change the googlevoice settings in order to receive the calls directly to my sprint number. It is too much trouble.

    Another thing I notice is that everytime I exited the GrooveIP app and later started it again, my contacts would receive an email inviting them to use google services. One of my contacts notified me that he received 17 emails from my email address just in one hour, the same email everytime. Apparently the app does it automatically and its very annoying. I dont want to overload my friends emails with requests. I dont know if the developer is aware of this, but he should take a look in to it.

    So my effort to be able to receive calls through WiFi in my home, where I dont have any sprint signal, was a total waste of time. I decided to definitely not use the app, so I wasted $3.99. :mad:

    Dude, we don't send any emails. I wouldn't even know how to do that with the app. I don't know if that's something because of the sprint integration, but my guess is the email is coming from Google.

    You can try having calls forwarded to both your google chat and to your sprint number. Both phones will ring when the app is running. If the app isn't running then just your sprint number will ring.

    Well I really don't know, but I tried it numerous times and every time I exited and then activated again the grooveIp app it sent an email to my contacts.

    I also tried forwarding calls to google chat and sprint number at the same time. When I receive a call, it comes first through grooveIp, I tried answer it with grooveip but it didnt work. Couple of seconds later, the phone would ring again but this time is through the sprint network. So selecting both option of forwarding calls didnt work with groove ip.

    I'll add a setting to ignore incoming calls (someone already suggested it, so it's on our list) if that would help. Can't really do much about the emails, don't believe we're generating them.

    New update is up!

    - Fix DTMF digits not detected when in a call
    - Add a configuration change Google Chat status
    - Proximity sensor support to turn off screen when held to face
    - Add new settings in troubleshooting to fix call quality on some phones (If you have stuttering/choppy voice try the new Audio Processing settings)
    - Integrate with native call log
    - Register as a dialer, clicking on a phone number will now list GrooVe IP as a dialer option

    If you were having the choppy voice issue then try the new Audio Processing settings. If you had choppy voice incoming then enable Incoming Audio Processing. If you had choppy voice outgoing then enable Outgoing Audio Processing. For the LG Optimus, make sure that Audio Routing Hack is OFF before enabling those two settings.

    If you're using your phones data and not wifi make sure that the Allow 3G/4G calling checkbox is checked in GrooVe IP

    I am using wifi and I'm logged out of gmail/voice too.

    Have you logged into google voice and changed the call forwarding settings? In the voice settings there are checkboxes on where to forward calls. You need to check Google Chat. Are you using an @gmail.com email address as the username?

    The only box I have checked off is chat and I am not using the @gmail.com.
    When I try to dial a call, I get a message "Not currently registered with GV"
    yet I do have a GV phone #.

    That message means that the app hasn't been able to log in to google voice using the username and password you put in. Generally the cause of that is either the username or password entered are incorrect. But I've also heard one person say they weren't able to get the app to register when they had a yahoo email address that was registered for google voice. That's why I asked if the email you registered to google voice with was a gmail one or some other type.
  19. mjv5864

    mjv5864 Member


    Yes, its a gmail address. I know it's the correct username and p/w because I've been using the same credentials to successfully log in to GV today as well.

    The only thing I can think of then is maybe it's a firewall issue. I can get you the ports we use. Just curious, what kind of phone are you using?

    I can't get incoming calls to my phone at all, I am on WiFi, not logged into gmail, or Gv, I even created a new GV account with a new number, and it don't work.

    Oh yeah, Optimus V

    This app is now listed at $3.99 :( :(

    I understand that this is an awesome concept and I am really interested in getting it. But I think at this price I will think about it and maybe wait for an alternative.

    Just think that if this gets featured on engadget etc. You will very likely gets tons of purchases, but a more attractive price would definitely help this be featured etc.

    I hope you consider lowering the price.

    Have you gone into your Google Voice settings and checked the forward calls to Google Chat checkbox?
