    well, if you have google voice and are willing to pay $4 for an app, theres an app called GrooVe IP that uses your data (3G or wifi) instead of minutes to call

    This thread amazes me. For you people jumping on the moral bandwagon, keep in mind that assumptions usually get you in trouble.

    And if you have Google voice and you make the call by calling into your Google voice number and then initiating the call from within Google voice, then your Google voice number will be the number that appears in the cell phone call records, not the final number you called.

    FWIW, another alternative would be to consider getting a "throw-away" phone. Essentially a cheap prepaid phone that is paid and activated in cash. Many places will sell these phones for cash and will allow the customer to activate them without needing the verify the name on the account with ID. Then when additional minutes are needed, you just top it off for cash.

    Incorrect, the GV access number is called, not the person's GV number.

    ...as does deception. Threads like this shouldn't be amazing if you've been around for any length of time. Responses are fairly typical from what I've seen.

    You misread and you're actually the one who's incorrect. He stipulated "and you make the call by calling into your Google voice number and then initiating the call from within Google voice" in which case it is the GV number that appears on the bill and not any access number.

    You still need to erase that number within google voice. The the app stores the numbers and text messages sent from the app.

    if you dial directly into your gv number, you don't have to use the app. i know if you send texts through GV, the app will store them, but that's because you're using the app. In this case you don't have to open the app at all. simply dial your google voice number, pick option 2, dial the number you want hidden and connect. when you get your bill, your gv number is the outbound call, as is it in your call log. the app has nothing to do with making the call

    That's all correct but from my own experience it didn't matter what way I used it will always store. I use it mainly to make international calls. Also, if you sign thru the net the numbers will show there. I believe that the OP wants to get rid of any trace.
