Hi. I just got a Droid Eris with Verizon. I'm actually new to data pkgs. as well, being content til now with simply voice and text from Verizon. I consider that I know just enough to be dangerous so I'm hoping someone has already solved my problem and can tell me, yes you can or no you can't! To use my Verizon voice service in the Dominican Republic, it costs $1.99/minute.... I'm tired of paying this. I have a Google voice number local to my Verizon number. My question is this: If I make a call from my Droid while physically in DR to a US number using google voice over either (a) the Verizon data network <unlim kb avail for $2.16/day> OR (b) an existing wireless connection that bypasses the verizon network I should not accrue Verizon cell minutes, right? The same would go if I received a call to the google voice number, right? Also, if I forward my Verizon number to the Google number, would any calls made to the Verizon number accrue as regular (not the $1.99) cell minutes since it's a forward to the local Google number? Any help is appreciated.
