    Ok Google Voice rocks - except now it is not working. I set my call options (I have a sprint hero) to always "ask" if i wated to call with Google voice. It worked. Now it doesn't. With the setting still on "ask" I never get the choice as my call is made from my cell phone number. No opitions showing.

    I have uninstalled, rebooted phone, and re-installed. Still not working.

    Anyone have a similar issue? Help please

Suggest you pick one number for testing purposes, & revise accordingly. Soft reboot, then tap the contact, select that number, and see if GV kicks in. At the very least, be sure an area code is present. It *should* revise your numbers into this style on its own, once it's called into play per number, but ...
