Looks like you can use google voice, gizmo5 and sipdroid to make free landline calls with the gtablet too. I am using CM B2 and was able to set things up using the directions I have used before at h ttp://androidcommunity.com/forums/f4/how-to-free-calls-via-wifi-using-google-voice-and-gizmo5-21836/

Keep in mind this is not perfect and I was only calling some after hours mailboxes since its late here but if you turn it to speaker phone it seems we can use our gtabs as a phone as well.


Edit: When I tried to call someone this morning I could here them pretty good but they said my voice was pretty bad though it may be this crappy hotel wireless doing that.

not sure how a single post thread made it to front page of the portal, lol.....


especially when the method employed uses gizmo5, to which new user application is (and has been for some time) suspended.

getting sipdroid to work through pbxes is a circus too. if you come up with an easy way to get sipdroid to work, that doesn't require gizmo5 (read: another easy way), i'd love to hear more

Not sure why its on the front page of anything to be honest. The post was mainly for the people that had been using this already as I have for some time. I wasn't aware that they had closed enrollment after gizmo5 was purchased by Google. As I see it with this tablet being finicky about what apps it will run too much info is better than none.

Someone actually took the time to give my post a bad rating. Couple of minutes on Google and I found this guide to setting up a sip connection without gizmo5. I doubt I attempt it since I have a gizmoaccount but I wanted to give something additional.

That seems pretty shabby... I got basically the same working only using a Vonage Softphone SIP account instead of Gizmo... so this can be done...

I tried sipdroid + gizmo5 + google voice, but I found that the gtablet doesn't seem to play audio from the other party. The microphone works though.

Any ideas?

Hi

I used the same sipdroid+gizmo5+google voice setup and was able to talk to the other party and hear the other party by using the bluethooth. Conversation was clear on both the sides though i felt that there was some amount of lag to hear each others voice.

Hope bluetooth works for you too
