gVoice is a $4.99 Android VoIP app developed by guidology that allows you to use your data connection (WiFi, 3G, 4G,EVDO) to place voice calls using a Google Voice Account. gVoice essentially turns your phone or tablet into a free wireless phone when using the application over WiFi.
The phone can also be configured to use a 3G, 4G or EVDo data connection but it must be noted the gVoice app uses approximately 1.2 MB of data per minute during a call which can be very costly if you don’t have an unlimited data plan. From the main gVoice dialing screen, press menu then tap the settings menu. The settings menu will let you configure the application to enable WiFi calling as well as options to enable 3G/4G VoIP calling.
I’ve tried using gVoice with several Android Smartphones and tablets without any major problems. In each case after installing the application and entering my Google Voice credentials the application connected with my account and I was able place and receive calls, even on my WiFi only HTC Flyer tablet.
