I'm going to Israel & have Google Voice on my BB.
A. Will I be able to call the US for free from my BB via GV?
B. If a US telephone calls me on my GV # on my BB will I be charged INTL rates from Verizon?
Thanks

no. no.
your blackberry only forwards the calls (so they are incoming rather then outgoing) but INTL roaming still applies. it would only be free if you had some kind of SIP program on your blackberry and were connected to the internet (either Wifi or pay INTL data rates vs. talk rates)

Have you guys tried using US proxies?
I use hotspot shield and it works - when enabled the call button shows up.
I also got gizmo5 but haven't set it up yet - I actually traded for it online with someone for 3 google voice invites
p.s. about two days later google voice went public :P

BTW, I just recently discovered that hotspot shield redirects urls through their affiliate links - even when disabled! Not the worst adware ever, but still pretty disgusting

the only step-by-step IS to set up the proxy (which I'm not familiar with)

Or to try and get a Gizmo5 account.

Looks like this should teach you how to use a proxy and search for a list of proxies:

do you  have a google voice account?
from israel it's probably easier to use GV-sipgate then to force gmail, no?

I would just warn that most free proxies are not secure, so be careful with what you do while using them.

1- open a sipgate free account
2- download sipgate's softphone
3- get a google voice account (does he need a proxy for this?)
4- put your sipgate # as your US number for GV account
5- dial outgoing from GV website- will ring on sipgate softphone
