    And that still would be cheaper than what I'm paying now


    But i guess I'm not that popular and dont need a whole lot of minutes in this 4th quarter

    Verizon is planning on launching the android handsets with this feature. They want you to use things like this, to take the load off the voice network, because data is cheaper for them.

    Any other GV user notice that the dialer uses a different number, an access number, to call with. You will need to add this number to your F&F too.

    Also to reiterate, if you check the box for email, you will still receive a sms message, counting toward your out of network usage.

    And as far as minutes, you have to have F&F, 1400 or 900 minutes respectively, to have the "unlimited minutes." still not unlimited though. The call is still using the voice network, so if you were to go data only, you would be charged $.25 a minute.

    GV is mainly used as a forwarding service, and as an advanced VM box. It was not intended to replace your airtime usage in its design, just add options that you have to pay for or are not available through carriers now.

    I only draw caution to this because a small misunderstanding can cost you a lot of money on a cell phone bill.

    I just started with GV today. I'm really liking it in conjunction with Gizmo5.

    I haven't tried Gizmo5 on my BB yet. I was more interested in using GV with my computer.
