Get the voice app there's a option that it will automatically use ur gv number ether for all calls or just for internatinal

So when I dial the number, GV will recognize if it's a Canadian area code on its own and make the call instead of my carrier?

But you're still saying the GV will recognize that it is a Canadian number and route it through my GV number?
I find that interesting that GV recognizes the area code.

My friend, maybe just download the app and try it. There's nothing clearer then trial. But yes it realizes when I call Israel and tells me it will charge .10 a min and when I call Toronto it doesn't charge. There is a option that it will ask u every time if you don't feel comfortable to trust the app on its own.... Hope this helps.

But it's probably a matter of time before they catch on and stop it.
I try not to abuse it but every few months I run low on data and do this trick it works perfectly if the catch on so they'll catch on but for now that it works why not use it

Seems nationwide.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I have cricket. Their service is great, but their costumer service is terrible!

There is nothing for anyone to catch on and stop it... The way it works (I think) whenever you call a number through gv, gv calls the number for you. gv somehow assigns a number to every phone number so all the app is doing is calling the number that is assigned to the number you are calling and that number is a US number (once you find out that number.. when they send a text to your gv # a number will come up  and that is the phone number assigned to that number. now you can call or text  directly using that number and they can respond text or call using your reg gv # which will come up by them... This may be an option if you don't have a smart phone you can call or text from the gv. Site a canadian # and find out what the number they r given and from then on you can call from your unsmart phone that designated number or even on your smartphone use that designated number for texting to the Canadian person so you won't have to use their app for texting & ask them to always text the gv number so you can respond to them in the same # so the conversation flows...

i have cricket for a few months already and they are great ! its better from sprint/t-mobile dono about verizon
you get 10GB LTE for $40 per month (with 5 lines) but if you are smart you can do what im doing... i start the month on the $20 plan, after using up the 2.5GB i switch to the $30 plan and i get another 5GB ..! after i use up the 5GB i switch back to the $20 plan and i get another 2.5GB !! at the end of the game i pay only $25 per month for 10GB LTE ! because i was half of the month on the $20 plan and  half on the $30 plan they charge a total of $25!
i dont know how many times you can change plan but 2 times for sure! i do that trick already for a few months
Still works? because a while back when I went to Canada I upped my plan then when I came back I downgraded and my data allowance said 7 however when I went Pesach when I came back and downgraded I went back to 2 which is even worse because I paid for a week of 5gb and once I downgraded they included all my data that I used at 5gb now counted for the 2 even though on their app it said it started over when I came back but I got a warning text @2gb based on the whole month (My cell has its own counter  that's how I know it included everything)

I assume he was referring to Cricket catching on about switching plan mid month not Google voice.
