Cool. At least I can make outgoing now.
Thanks for the tip!
oh right. dint think of that i'll try it out.

If you are outside the US, you will likely want to see this before you screw things up: http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2010/08/dont-click-this-button-in-google-voice.html
im still not getting the "call phone" option in my inbox even though my default language is set to english. (im in IL)

yup it  works.
now lets work on incoming. is  anyone else having this issue with having to press 1 to accept even with the option turned off?
there's gotta be some sort of desktop keypad available for download so that you can press 1 to accept when it rings in your inbox. (im talking about out of the US)

I wonder if you use your system sounds as a mic (sound card dependent) and play the sound of a 1 being pressed if that would work

You could try whistle (I downloaded it but never tried it because I realized that I already had gizmo5 but never set it up).

no. but i did do a test by logging in to my family computer back in the US using logmein. I then logged into my gmail remotely - and the call phone option does come up. I'm assuming that using a US proxy would have the same results.

It seems from Google's wording "Make free calls to the US and Canada in 2010" that they may start charging for this soon, perhaps as soon as 2011.

It seems from Google's wording "Make free calls to the US and Canada in 2010" that they may start charging for this soon, perhaps as soon as 2011.
In a blog post announcing the feature, Google would only commit to offering free calls in the U.S. and Canada through the end of the year. Google's Craig Walker, product manager for real-time communications, said the company had no plans to raise rates beyond 2010, but it is still waiting to see if it will make enough margin on international calls to justify the free cost of U.S. and Canada calls. It will cost a little more to call mobile phones in countries outside the U.S., depending on the country."
