    No you will have to put credit on your google voice account. When you log into google voice look on the left side and it will give your your remaining credit. But if you set your google voice (not the number you set... the number your phone calls) as one of your friends and family then your calls inside the US using your google voice are free

    Edit - Nevermind i just looked at the rates and canada is free. You just have to do like i said and set google voice as one of your friends and family so the calls are free to google voice too

    What are you referring to as an "old" number? are you changing your google voice number or are you referring to your carrier number?

    If they are calling your original number its not gvoice. If you choose a new number and they call your new number (gvoice) number then yes you will be answering through gvoice.

    I added the Google access number (the number google dials to make the call) and the Google number to the friends n family list. There is a whole write up about this somewhere....
