    So I just recently acquired a Droid X and I was wondering if its possiple to use it with Google Voice and not have a plan with Verizon to make calls. I'm able to text with it, but unable to make phone calls currently

    I've done alot of research, but can't seem to find anything that'll work.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance. :]

    No, you would need a voice plan to make any kind of calls. Google voice does not provide you a cellular connection, so you wouldnt be able to make a call.

    Google Voice is NOT a VOIP service.

    It is just a configurable call routing service. All it does is route your calls to an appropriate phone number - it does not provide a VOIP calling service.

    To be clear about the above, it is not using Google Voice to make phone calls. It is using SIPdroid to make phone calls. It uses Google Voice to trick SIPdroid into thinking it's getting an incoming call instead of making an outgoing one.

    If you use Google Chat, then you can route your calls to your Google Chat App via your data connection.

    Not necessarily... Wifi + Skype would handle that.

    As mentioned above, using SIP works great. It turns your cell phone into a wifi phone basically. Google voice gives you unlimited texting. SIP gives you unlimited incoming calls for free. You use Google Voice to send an incoming call to your sip number that connects you with who you want to call. There's many apps you can use such as Fring that will pop up when your sip number gets a call for you to answer. I used this method for a month or so. Call quality was lacking but it was workable and free.
