Can you make and receive calls with the app? it may be worth while to get a BB with international data and use it in Israel

When I place a call it goes through the BB phone. Not sure why. I even tried turning off the mobile network and just leaving the wifi but it would not work.

Why would Google care? The phone companies are already losing money because of Google voice.

But they can restrict how the apps interact with the hardware in the SDK.
When I place a call it goes through the BB phone. Not sure why. I even tried turning off the mobile network and just leaving the wifi but it would not work.
Hence that

the app only dials (through wifi) but does not actually 'carry' the call. for that it needs to ring on either your cell line or another line (unless you can find a VOIP/SIP app for BB)

Thats is correct. There are 2 methods 1) it dials a special Google number/or yur gvoice number 2)it connects to google servers and you get a callback from Google. Either way its uses your cell minutes unless add your carriers free numbers to dial (Fave5 Pick 3, .....)

Can you break it down a bit. What is a SIP Client, and can I use it to speak on Gvoice through data and not minutes?

Any feedback on 3jam? They allow you to port your number to them, unlike GV.

A SIP client is a piece of software that converts voice to data and sends its over the Internet in a specific protocol (called SIP).

If you set your up Google Voice number with this tutorial https://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0Ae8glDUXDsh9ZGR2eG43cjRfMzNkOTM4ZjNjeA&hl=en and then use SIP software you can call out using only your data and not your minutes

Not me rest assured ::)

However if you didnt sign up to Sipgate yet you no longer can (for free) It seems that due to popularity of this tutorial, they ran out of free numbers.

You can however use this desktop client to call out and in through Google Voice. (This cannot be used for cellphones)

if you read through the tutorial- there's alternatives for sipgate. (ipkall.com; useless on it's own but combine with sipsorcery)

(i got sipgate when someone on this forum mentioned it, but just yesterday helped my brother set himself up,sipgate was unavailable-worked out the ipkall route)

Disclaimer: i do not own a blackberry. i don't know if this will work. (i used WM/Fring/SipSorcery.com(currently closed to new accounts)) this is based on info from this forum

Step 1- open a sipgate.com free account
Step 2-install a sip client (for BB- http://www.blackvoib.com/Download/BlackVoib.jad , for Windows Mobile/Iphone use Fring.com)on your phone
Step 3- set up your sip client with your sipgate settings
Step 4- log in to google voice and put your sipgate phone number as your forwarding number
Step 5- dial from google voice website. (you will need to dial from your browser for every call. until sipsorcery reopens)

this should route the entire call through web/wifi with no 'minutes'. report back if it works
