    I'm going to be without regular cell service for about a month, so I thought I would look into Google Voice. I had it all set up, using Google Voice and GrooVe IP to make the actual VOIP calls with. Unfortunately, I received a notice this morning that GrooVe IP no longer works with Google Voice, and I can't seem to make calls straight from Voice. Does anybody know of a free app that will get me by for a month or so that works with Google Voice? I really don't want to have to resend a new number to everybody so soon.

    My Google Voice + Groove IP still works today (5/16/2014) to send and receive calls over home WiFi.

    Did you update it? Mine popped up with an update today. Once the update finished, it won't accept Google Voice. It keeps trying to push me to use RingTo.

    I've installed the apps listed in the thread and will test them in the morning. Thanks.

    That's because GrooveIp is apparently now setting up with Ring.to since Google will no longer be allowing them, and many other such apps, to tie into their 'network'

    Except that all of those seem to require getting a new number, which I said I don't want to do again. Switching to it doesn't seem to offer any advantage over Google Voice. In fact, at least one of them is a monthly subscription setup, which I don't want.

    I ended up going with GV Phone. While it doesn't seem as fast as GrooVe IP, it still works. If that one stops working between now and when I won't need it any more (maybe a month), then I'll start looking at other options again.

    I'm using
    Google Voice v0.4.2.82
    GrooVe IP Lite v1.4.5.1.1

    Not planning to update anytime soon.

    Update:
    6/10/2014: GrooVe IP + Google Voice (with the above versions) still works.
