    One of the reasons that I kept staying with 0.3.4 was Google introduced that direct number nonsense which broke the whole Friends & Family hack. But it looks like this newest update of Google Voice 0.4.2.8 works again with the bridging number hack.

    I tried it out a few times and so far it seems less laggy too. Yay!

    Really? Mine calls the same bridging number each time, no matter who I'm calling. It's not my Google Voice number, but at least it's consistent so I can add that number to my Friends & Family list for unlimited outgoing calls.

    The bridging number that I have is a 916 area code.

    Just tested the new 4.2.8, much faster that the 3.2 I was using. It does not use the same bridging number over and over though, just random numbers :( I will go back to using 3.2

    That's just so weird! I've rebooted my phone several times and called different numbers over the last few days and always got the same bridging number. :thinking:
