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

this works on computer ? or on blackberry too

so www.blackvoib.com doesn't work?

for BB maybe not, but for Windows Mobile/Iphone/Android you can use Fring (www.fring.com)

To all wishing to use google chat to make voice calls from Israel: Set up a proxy by downloading HotSpot Shield. When it is activated your computer acts like it's in the US and google chat will give you a call a phone option

Hot spot shield installs adware on your computer and changes vital settings including hijacking your browser to go through their affiliate accounts.
I would strongly recommend against it. Their uninstaller doesn't ever remove half the junk it installs into your system. Use revo uninstall to get it out

If you have a computer that is on in the states, google or youtube how to make a VPN, which will allow you to tunnel through that internet connection. You can also google/youtube how to make your own proxy server, which will be a bit complicated, but will allow you to connect through a web server based in the US, although I've found that method to be a bit complicated.

The theoretically simplest solution is to manually set your browser to connect through a free proxy such as one listed here. You can filter by country: US. However there are 2 problems with doing that. 1- it can be hard to find a working proxy, 2- Anyone can post a proxy, and you are connecting through their system, meaning hypothetically they can be collecting any UN/PW or CC/Bank info you put in while surfing through their system.

If someone knows how to set up a fast and fully functional (ie including flash and SSL support) proxy and put in on a descent host, we probably have a few ppl here that would be willing to chip in the $1-2 per month that we'd need to maintain it

Probably be worthwhile for foreign based folks wanting to make free phone calls.

PCWorld featured them a while ago. I wrote them a long letter, which I don't really assume solved anything. But I think it's just ridiculous.

Iv'e never needed a vpn or proxy to use this if the phone icon doesn't come up in gmail just log into google voice in a separate tab and call the number through gmail. your gmail should ring and the call will go thru.
