Wow, I'm so excited.
In one of my last posts, I asked about making and receiving phone calls on my new Android phone. And today I figured out how to do it! I can't promise that my instructions will work for in all situations, but this is what I did.
1. Get a google voice phone number. I had to do this while I was in the states, because I needed to have a physical phone line to register the number. Don't ask me how to do this. I just found the directions on the Google Voice website.
2. Download Groove IP on your Android phone. You can also google information on how this works. I actually downloaded Groove IP Light from the Amazon.com App store for free! The "normal" app is about USD $5
3. You have to make sure that your Google Voice settings are set to "chat." Again, if this doesn't make sense, do a google search.
4. Log into Groove IP on your phone. As long as you have a data connection (WiFi with Groove IP light, or if you pay the USD $5 I think you can do it over your mobile data network) you should be able to make and receive phone calls.
And I still love technology...
