    Default Free Phone Calls WITH NO MOBILE PLAN

    Before I start on my epic adventure, go set up a Google Voice account "with one of your current gmail accounts."
    (Sign in with a current gmail account).

    NOTE: If you are using an iDevice (iPhone). Check out Talk-A-Tone <-- iTunes App Store *FREE*
    And follow those instructions. Still used with a Google Voice Account.


    If you don't have a "working" cell phone to use to "Get Verified". Use a friends or parents. (You can remove this phone from your account later).
    Go through the settings in your Google Voice account, set it all up, and when you are done setting it up.. well, all that you can at the time..

    NEXT.. Connect to any WiFi that you can on your smartphone.. when you are connected.. download the Google Voice 0.4.2.44 apk.
    Install it onto your smartphone that DOES NOT HAVE a mobile plan active on it.
    Set it up with the information from your Google Voice information. Username/Email and Password.

    Once that is done. Continue reading...

    NOTE: Make sure that you are still CONNECTED to WiFi.

    I spent the day figuring all this out.. it was confusing to me at first, until I was researching,
    almost to the point where I was just going to say, SCREW IT!!

    Then, on my last article about "Free WiFi Calling", I read a post that said if CsipSimple and SipDroid
    is too confusing, or just did not work properly for this person (I tried them both myself), then they
    should try GrooveIp.

    I checked on the Market, and seen that it cost more than I was willing to spend to "test" out if
    it actually worked or not. So, being the investigative person I am, I started my search to find an
    available free download for it, so I could try it out myself.

    EUREKA !!

    I found the current release, and added it to my collection. Download: GrooVe IP 1.2.17 apk

    Download and install the GrooVe IP apk and install it onto your smartphone that currently DOES NOT HAVE a mobile plan active on it.

    NOTE: If you move GrooVe IP to your SD Card, you WILL NOT be able to have it "auto start" when your phone boots up.

    Now, once you are at the LOGIN screen of GrooVe IP.. enter your GMAIL username and password. (All things on your phone are sent securely to Google).

    Now that you have it RUNNING. Go into the settings and set them up as you wish.

    ---

    You might have to change a few settings on your smartphone itself.

    I had to go into: Settings > Call Settings > and change the Voicemail Service and Voicemail Settings.

    NOTE: If you have a "working" cell phone. You can FORWARD calls to your working cell phone via your Google Voice number.
    Which means that you can add the Google Voice Widget (inside Gvoice account) to your website, and people can call you for free,
    and you can get their call on your working cell phone.. Or you can just get the call on your smartphone over WiFi.

    I too have a plan. But some might not be able to afford their cell bill.

    Maybe their parents shut their phone off.

    Maybe they don't want to give out their "real" number.

    Maybe they are on limited minutes or texts.

    This can be used for many reasons.
