What’s GV Dialer? Back to top


GV Dialer will intercept your outgoing call; uses Google Voice to call you back and connect your call for free (in the US).

Unlike the official Voice app, GV Dialer will routes your call through the internet and will not use your minutes.

You can use GV Dialer with Gizmo5/sipdroid; can also use it when not in US.

To use GV Dialer, you need set up a Google Voice account if you don't already have one.

In this time, if you user the official Google Voice application, you will be charged. As the official Voice application will call to a local number (for example 760-576-4664, the number will change irregularly), and connect to your destination through this local number. If you can not call to this number for free or add this number to your myFaves (as this number changes irregularly, so it's hard to add the number to your myFaves), you will still be charged.

You can use GV Dialer to avoid this kind of charge.

If you use T-mobile myFaves (or some similar service), add your Google Voice number to your myFaves.

Set up your Google voice account, and choose the default phone to ring(this is the callback number).
