Read this How to SMS with Google Voice from Any Mobile Phone via lifehacker It's not their Google voice number it's a number (starting with 406) Google assigns to that person. If they sent that person's phone number, when you replied, it would be from your cell phone number not your Google number. When you reply to the 406 number Google assigned to that ...

You can do it with Sipgate and an asterisk server. I set mine up like this a few weeks ago. There's a pretty comprehensive guide and lots of followup posts here. http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthread.php?sduid=0&t=1480557 There was actually a followup thread on SD where people are running this setup without a local asterisk server, and using a ...

No numbers are inherently "SIP" numbers or any other type of numbers, they are just numbers. Numbers are handed out to VoIP providers and PSTN line providers alike from number vendors (such as 360 or Level 3, they do not generate the numbers themselves - though they can, however this doesn't mean they own the number, it will route only within their network ...

You can use Gizmo as your SIP provider. My understanding (as a gizmo user, but not having used this heavily yet), is that the Gizmo/GoogleVoice 'integration' is really two different things. For outgoing calls (from the Gozmo softphone), it allows you to call out of Gizmo and show your GV number on callerid; however, the calls are routed through Gizmo's ...

Yes. To place a call with Google Voice from a regular phone line, you simply dial your own Google Voice number from any regular phone, press 2 to place a call, and enter the number you'd like to call. Here's more information on this: http://www.google.com/support/voice/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=115079

You can call your google voice number from your phone (if its registered) and it will ask for your pin number then give you the option (option #2 at this time) to make an outgoing call. There is also a way to modify your phone book entry so these steps are automated, here is an article worded for modifying a contact on the iPhone on how to do it but it ...

I think your hypothesis is correct. I set up my number last night, and my wife was able to send me SMS messages without any problems, and I had not sent her any yet. She sent it about 45 minutes after I had activated my account.

I am a avid Google voice user and would recommend it. Of course this would all be based on the assumption he already uses gmail (or is willing to). You can call from either your gmail or Google voice interface, texting and VM will be handled from your Google Voice interface. In Google voice check the setting that sends calls to your Google chat and it ...

At the moment, there is no way to change the ringing tone in the Chrome version. The tone that plays does seem to depend on the version of Google Voice and Video Chat you have installed. If you have the older version (installed in Gmail) you get one version, if you have the Hangouts app in Chrome (newer) you get the other.

You could dial from Google voice and have it ring your skype phone. First you will have to add you skype number to Google voice. From Google voice hit call, enter the number you want to call, select your skype number from the drop down list and hit connect Google voice will call your skype number and connect you with the number you called, they will see ...

Call-backs: Unlike text messages, Google Voice doesn't provide a magic call-back number to avoid re-introducing your "old"/carrier number to contacts. If Voice's mobile or desktop web sites are accessible, you have to call into your Google Voice number, hit 2 to place a call, then enter the number you're calling back. That's a pain in the rear, and even ...

Have you looked into Google voice It uses the contact list in your Google Contacts. It also integrates into cell phones (iOS, Android) if you were to get one later. Google voice allows you to send/receive on a computer. The normal interface is a web interface, but I have standalone software for the Menubar on my mac, I assume there must be a Windows systray ...

Google developed a desktop Google Voice app based on the Gizmo5 software they acquired, but it's likely it will never be released due to Google's strategy and focus on web-based apps. There are a couple of apps that let you make google voice calls from the Desktop. The Adobe Air utility for Google Voice is one that will run on Linux as well as windows. This ...

I don't know if your question still stands anymore, but I've written an app that works (in addition to others) on Linux. Integrates with SIP through telepathy and Skype through dbus. Call out (skype/SIP) and call back. Integration with Google contacts.

Use WinWait command with WinText parameter, as said here

Linksys SP2102 is the one my company provides for itsVoIP customers, but basically any analog to digital device will suffice. Should work in US and Canada fine, but I don't know how well any given adapter would work with skype.

They get installed, so that Google Talk can talk to your Webcam & Microphone subsystems.

There is no way to disable Google Talk status changes by third party apps, so stop using Mo+ GV and start using Google's Google Voice app with something like Sipgate (see this article). If an app doesn't let you stop its shameless self-promotion, stop using it.

Although it's not amplification, it's easy to increase the volume of only one application using the built in Windows 7 mixer. (I'm on Windows 7, but should be similar on 8) Open the Volume Mixer (Click the volume icon) and select the "Mixer" link to see the list of applications. You can expand the window to see all the applications at once. First, lower ...

There was an app called Vocito (http://googlemac.blogspot.com/2008/11/vocito-voe-kee-toe.html), but it hasn't been updated since GrandCentral became GV. The closest I've come to what you want is the Firefox Google Voice Add-on: http://thatsmith.com/2009/03/google-voice-add-on-for-firefox
