I am attempting to setup asterisk with my google voice account and not having much success. When I attempt to dial out, I get this error:

No XMPP client to talk to, us (partial JID) : asterisk
Unable to create channel of type 'Gtalk' (cause 0 - Unknown)
  == Everyone is busy/congested at this time (1:0/0/1)
    -- Auto fallthrough, channel 'SIP/WalterWhite-00000000' status is 'CHANUNAVAIL'

I followed the documentation from here: https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Calling+using+Google http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ec8nsZORSBw

I am running Asterisk on ArchLinux. I can post my configuration files if that helps.

I finally got it working;however, the call quality is not that great all the time. The first minute is usually good depending on who I call. After that, the call quality may drop off quite a bit.

I set my configuration up using this as a baseline: http://forums.digium.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=79677&p=162610&hilit=google+voice&sid=8568c94ac82b7ab351033c642beefefe#p162610
