I was wondering if there were any good "VoIP" apps? I've used TextPlus Gold and everything. And I was also wondering how would I setup my Google Voice account if my Player isn't a phone? Any help and suggestion is appreciated. Thanks

If you are on the US or Canadia, you can use GrooveIP for free calls for the remaining of this year using your Google Voice account with it.

I think you can find GrooveIP for free on the Amazon App Store.

For text, the same App, or just Google Voice.
To text internationally for free, Heywire.

apps for call/text
Hey iLoveAndroid13,

for calling use Bobsled Calling... its a REALLY GOOD APP... by the way, I use the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 US Version and it works good for me.

and for texting... just use TextPlus, there's nothing bad in it, but its only good use for you if you want to text to US/Canada.

I heard Whatsapp Messenger is good too.. but its not compatible with my device.
Anyhow, I used to use GrooveIP but stopped because the quality is bad.

Hope I helped!

I tried all these apps but they are for USA and Canada only. Heywire is not supported in my country.

You Don't unless you have a GV account. And unfortunately for people living outside North America, there are no "free" options that i know of. You can however, if your country is supported, get a "paid" number from Skype and make very low cost calls.

I'm in Canada and we just got a free app called "Dell Voice" which gives you a free "local" number with which you can make unlimited local calls and unlimited long distance calls to any cellphone/landline to most areas in Canada. And Dell Voice to Dell Voice is always free anywhere in the world.
