    just a tip to people who use google voice.. i called sprint and was able to add "sprint to home" service to my account for $5 a month. i put google voice access number as my home phone... so any google voice calls i make do not come out my minute bucket... this would be great for people who use alot of land lines and want to use the $69.99 plan (+$5).. great for those long conference calls..

    Not sure why you are pay $5 a month. I got this deal a few months back when I just "talked about" going with another carrier. I am not sure what they call the program, but basically you can have 3 numbers that don't count towards your anytime minutes. GV was the first one added and since ALL my calls are made to/from my GV number, I use very few minutes. As for the $5 fee, I would be raising hell about that...especially if you are paying the $10 "Evo tax".

    FYI, be careful with Google Voice and watch the number your phone is actually dialing. Google Voice uses access numbers which change periodically. So, just because you have your Google Voice number set as your Sprint to Home or Pick 3 doesn't mean you are necessarily dialing that number.

    The best way to get around this is using a "Callback" app. I use GVoice Callback, its in the market.

    I found an article about the access numbers, do your homework so you don't get hit with over minutes charges. google voice access number - Google Voice Help
