    So as most of you know the last GV update causes the app to use random access numbers everytime you call.

    So now I can no longer add the number to my friends and family.

    I have heard there are ways to get around this, for example, there is an app called "google voice dialer"

    Are there any other alternatives to not using my minutes??

    Please post them!!

    You have 3 options that I'm aware of:

    1) Completely remove the app and go back to the previous version, found here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6035817/com.google.android.apps.googlevoice-1.apk

    2) Download this app: GVMyNumber.apk - gvmynumber - GVMyNumber - Project Hosting on Google Code
    Note: You have to have no unread voicemails for the above fix to work

    3) If you call your Google Voice number, press 2, dial the number of the person you want to call, press #, it will connect you.

    I use GV for two reasons. I use the Visual Voicemail because its free and I give that number out to non-friends and family because I can easily block unwanted numbers if it gets into the wrong hands.

    #3 can be automated using Flex Dialer from the Market. Works quite well. I bought the Pro version, which allows for multiple profiles to us different calling methods for different contacts.

    Yeah, this was the motivation I needed to test out hooking up Linphone to the SipGate account I set up :)
