EDIT:
After messing with the 3.5 Dash D170 for a while, I've figured out a few fixes that you can do to get the most out of it. Below are the links with pertinent stuff:

Root the device - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2#post40433602

Install Calendar Google Sync (in system/app) - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...yncAdapter.apk
Install GoogleVoice - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...oice-40254.apk

Replacement Batteries - Authorized dealer is: http://www.24hrsdeals.com/
------------------------------------------------------------------

I just got a Blu Dash 3.5, and for some reason Google Play thinks it's incompatible with my phone (same with Calendar, but I can live without that for now.) I tried searching for a Google Voice APK on the forums and was able to sideload install it and run it, but it kept running into mysterious connection errors when logging in.

Is there any way I can get Google Voice running on this thing? Anyone have the latest APK I could try?

The phone is running 2.3.5

FYI, the sideload I tried was 0.4.2.54 , available here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1561786

Some more detailed information on exact things:

Phone has no SIM cards installed currently, only WiFi

Downloaded Google Voice from the link provided above. Application installed, open app.

Welcome to GV -> Next
Select an account (my account is selected) -> Sign In
Access Request -> Allow
Signing in ... (waiting 20 seconds)
We have a problem; Your account status could not be loaded. Please try again.

I have a perfectly usable wifi connection. Why would this be happening? Thanks!

Wanted to give an update.. I seem to have gotten this sideload to work in a strange way.

After installing a SIM card and going into voicemail settings, I changed it from Carrier to Google Voice, which then had no problem signing in. It's possible that this forced it to accept the credentials, or it's also possible that Google Voice will only authenticate on a mobile data network and not WiFi.
