How would you miss calls with the outgoing call setting? Wouldn't a missed call be an incoming call? If you are looking for a job and need a reliable phone, you should just pop for a $45 straight talk sim for a month. It's a decent plan. unlimited talk/text and 3GB of LTE data.

Though, this topic is for the nexus 7. You may want to check the nexus 5 forum for information on this topic.

Best of luck with the job hunt.

Thanks for the luck with the job hunt. Would you be willing to buy that 45$ sim for me? That's kinda the issue, person.... I can't afford a plan or even the cheapest solution that I've found, 5$ for 500 outgoing minutes, but can't even get that setup because the phone tries for the mobile operator even though it's in airplane mode.. Once upon a time I could use talk/ google voice. Can't do that now and hangouts doesn't have VOip on ze 'droid yet.

The best solution i've found is with a SIP provider, but that gives me only free incoming calls. It's decent and works through the stock dialer, I just for the life of me can't figure out how to get it to use it for outgoing calls too, even when selected as primary phone. I thought I could use google voice, like in the guide, but it didn't work. Missed opportunities due to the way that google voice worked and in conjunction with terrible cell phone service, missed a call today and didn't get the voicemail through google voice till 5:15pm. If anyone has a method for free outgoing calls too, i'd be stoked, haven't found one yet.

Sell your nexus 5 and get a cheaper phone and use the extra money to buy service.

Then get job and make money. Once you have that you can buy stuff you can afford and don't ask people to pay for your basic needs.

Problem solved...Take care of your basics before buying nice to have things.

Thanks for posting this, I would really like to try this but I was wondering if this would still work on CleanRom , I am also using a lot of xposed modules , would it still work or would I get a boot loop? Thanks

I wonder if there's anything that works beside CallCentric. The way it takes you on a meandering ride beginning with innocuous requests for personal information ("your real name, your real address, your .... And how about 911 calls? How about this and that...") before popping up the bait: "how about your credit card number?" Why, "due to abuses, we need to have it on file," so forth... Give me the creeps. Sorry OP, don't mean to appear I'm questioning your good intentions and help.

This is no longer needed since hangouts has google voice calling.
