    Google Voice broken

    I just got around to signing up for google voice. Nice service. The android app, however, doesn't work right on my Atrix. It installs and configures fine but I found that I HAVE to have data turned on to dial via Google Voice (even though I'm on wifi) and even if I have data turned on (which I don't normally) I can't place normal cell calls unless I've got set it to never use google voice for calls. If it's set to prompt me, it just doesn't dial. Kind of a bummer.

    I can still use the web interface to place calls, but i would have liked to be able to do that via the app. I have it on my wife's IPhone and that one seems to just be an app interface to the web site (it doesn't require data be on).

    I thought Vlingo was a voice control dohickie, not a calling service. Either way, it no longer seems to be on my phone (I don't recall removing it, but it's not there anymore).

    Yes, this is the way Google Voice on Android works. It uses your cellular minutes. It's not true voip. There are third party apps that do true voip using Google Voice service.
