I was checking out the Google Voice service today, and there is an option (if you opted for the google voice "with google number" account) that allows you to place a call through a google number.
Now, with my 1400 minute family share plan, I am given free access to the "10 number list" which i can call without using my minutes.
On the google voice website there is an option to place a call. It says that google will call me, then connect me to the person I want to talk to.
Is it possible for me to add the google number that calls me to this unlimited list, allowing me to basically use google as a "middle man" and get free outgoing calls?
I'm about to go to sleep since I got to get up early tomorrow, but this seems like an interesting idea. Has anyone tried this that has the option to add certain numbers to an unlimited minute list?
My only concern is if the number that calls me to setup the call is a random google number. It wouldn't be useful if the number always changed, since there is a delay when adding numbers to the unlimited list.
I briefy looked over a guide a few minutes ago about a gismo5 + google voice combination that allowed free outgoing calls. It would be interesting if we found a way to do this on our mobile phones.
Honestly, I don't use anywhere near my monthly allowed minutes, but it would be really kool if I ran out of minutes but wanted to make an important call or talk to my friends.
None of this would be breaking any rules, as it uses legitimate services.
Anyway, its something to think about. Feel free to drop a reply and add your opinion on the matter, and give us any additional information on the topic that might be useful.
