    Thumbs down Google voice screwed me

    oK guys and gals

    If you make calls with Google Voice and you are on verizon unless you are on an unlimited call time plan then GV will cause you major heartburn on your phone bill.

    GV uses a broker number or an access number to dial out and now it rotates so the broker number is what is going to show up on your phone bill and guess what,, it is not seen as a mobile to mobile number nor is it seen as a friends and family number unless you have all umpteen dozen of them logged so you and I are gonna pay thru the nose

    I did I paid an extra 200 bones for september because i set my droid to make all calls from GV
    FYI

    I stopped using it after the last update or so, when they implemented those codes. That's an expensive lesson.

    Question, Did it cost extra because you went over your minutes using google voice or extra because using the broker number it charges x amount per min?

    Thumbs down Google Voice not anymore

    it may have been known a while ago but, not by all because I did not know it. I also googled before posting to google voice forum and this forum so it is not widely known and that is why i posted so that others will not fall prey to this bullsnot.

    Thanks for the useful "I am so smart I knew that already response"

    That is always an asset in any forum!

    The total talk time sent me over and the fact that the numbers were access numbers not considered

    mobile to mobile or my circle numbers is wat did it!

    Hopefully this info will help others.

    i was unaware of this and tbh was never interested in using GV.

    I'm sorry this happened to you and let this be a lesson to others as well.

    Try researching a bit the next time...

    Google, download, and install GVMyNumber and add your GV# to FnF for unlimited, region/access number outbound calls.

    Append the abbreviation of each contact's carrier to the name suffix field so you can quickly see whether you should use GV or your carrier number before dialing.

    I take it this is because you created a new Google Voice number? What if I still use my Verizon number?
