Update: Since the time of this posting when unlimited calling was allowed, Gizmo5 has instituted a 3 minute call limit while the service is in beta testing mode.
If you already have a Google Voice account than this procedure is quite simple.
Yes there are tons of other great uses for Google Voice, but this one is pretty neat…I’ll definitely be trying it out when I go to Israel next month!
If you don’t have one yet, just request an invite and within a couple weeks you should get one.
Once you have set up your Google Voice account,
-Go to gizmo5.com
-Sign up for a gizmo account and download their VOIP app.
-On the Gizmo site is a “My” tab. In that section is a place to enter your Google Voice login information, enter it and save it.
-On your Google Voice Settings page add your Gizmo phone number (1+10 digit phone number found in your Gizmo account page) and verify the number.
-Use the Gizmo5 VOIP to make phone calls to anywhere in the US and receive phone calls with your Google Voice number for free!
You can also use Google Voice and Gizmo5 to work with any other VOIP device for free nationwide calls. You can use a device like this $53 Internet Phone Adapter to make VOIP phone calls from a real phone for free.
