    that is pretty sweet.

    I hope Google will release GV as voip enabled so we don't have to do something like that.

    Every guy that says it is working is usually a tmobile guy as far as the voice part is concerned.

    I actually got it working... I was asking to see if something was wrong with my device.

    Go into settings
    About device
    Status
    And write down your device number.

    Log into voice.google.com and go to google voice settings.
    Add a phone
    Drop in your device number.
    A verificarion window will pop up... Becuase you can't accept calls... just close this window.

    Launch the google voice app on the tab and the wizard should complete this time.

    The problem seems to be that the tab doesnt send sms messages consistantly if at all, though I receive them consistantly.
    After I got GV working I didnt go back to do any further testing to pinpoint the problem... But its for sure something to do with sending sms messages.

    Google Voice setup is not available on mobile devices.

    That is what I get when I sign in to google voice. Can you help?

    hopefully eventually yes, the hardware is definitely there, as this is identical to the UK version which does work as a phone, however someone has to figure out how to "turn those capabilities on" rooting the device does nothing other than give you "super user" permissions on it. so if you know how to manipulate the software and OS to allow calling then yes, root the device manipulate the software and it will make calls.

    It also says this Please access Google Voice from a desktop or laptop computer to setup your Google Voice account.

    is the account you use for Google Voice already on the Tab?

    all I did to get it working on my VZ Tab was download GV from the market run the app, select my account to sign in with and accept defaults for VM settings, it works fine for me, pretty much identical process as it was setting it up on my Droid Incredible.

    do you already have a google voice account? if not then yes you need to set one up from a pc first and use a real phone number that you can be called on during setup.

    you can not create a new GV account from the Tab

    When I first got on to google voice it did allow the whole phone number part bit I must have done something and now it wont allow me even to enter. I wonder if I reset my device if it would allow me then.

    can you get into the settings of GV? if so there is an option to sign out, which will get you back to the original initiation screen.
