Hi all, I am a very new NEWB! So be easy with me please!
This is my first cell phone in 10 years. There has long been 0 service in my area here in the woods, and now that there finally is I am ditching my home phone for this lovely Droid X.
I was able to get my Verizon rep to get me this droid for $25 and a 2 year contract, which seemed to be a pretty darn good price. I have spent a few days trying to get familiar with all the features, but there are so many it is crazy. In any case, I love the phone and need some help.
Here's my issue:
It was told to me that using Google Voice I could set my phone up to use VOIP calling so when I was in vicinity of a hot spot I could use that service rather than burning my minutes. It was also hinted to me that I could somehow use my data plan and Google Voice to make VOIP calls as well. Further, they said that there was a way to use that same Google Voice to send and receive free text messages so there was no need for a texting plan.
My problem is just simply I can't figure out how to do it. I am quite sure you guys have already been there and done that, so maybe one of you could be kind enough to help me do it?
Thank you in advance for your help.
