As was suggested, you lose the ability to see who is calling in but at least it will be a free call.

Okay, I now have a gmail number took awhile but finally got it. Here is the problem, I can't make google calls from the app I downloaded from Cydia. If I go to the google voice web site and make a call it works fine. Any ideas anybody?

What is it doing?
If You downloaded the GV Mobile app from Cydia, all you need to do is open it up. Dial a number or choose a Contact. Your iPhone will ring. You answer it then GV places the call. You should here the other phone "ringing" when you answer your iPhone.
Is that happening? Did that make sense?

geez. i have my google voice 'approval' and have the app installed, but after reading all this A-list mumbo-jumbo, it seems a bit complicated. and for me, i don't have a dedicated line to my office right now. so really, my only contact would be my normal cell #. so i guess i'll keep the GV option open for a later date. maybe then i'll really need this feature.

it dials then error pops up and says something like you are trying to call an invalid number. I'll post a screen shot when I get home. It does that error with every number I call. I did download the GV app from Cydia. If I use the Google voice wbsite it works fine.

i just setup my jailbroken iPhone to send and receive calls. I'm using Gizmo5, Google voice and Siphon (via Cyidia)... All free.
I love this.
Sometimes the calls sound a little skype-ie. But, I'm not on the 450 min plan and I've canceled txt messaging.... w00t.

Yes it does work. But you have to remember to change your Settings > Calls > Caller ID (in) to Display my Google Voice number.
For those who don't have Google Voice and have a hard time understanding what's being asked, you set up contacts with phone numbers either via GMail or directly in Google Voice. When you call these numbers or any number you type within the Google Voice webapp phone keypad, it dials those respective numbers but all of them are filtered through a specific central number. Likewise, when you follow the above tips to set your Google Voice number to display, it shows that number when anyone calls you. So if you have this particular number on your AT&T A-List wherein you're allow unlimited calls to and from it for free, you will never be charged for using Google Voice!
MARK MY WORDS: If this becomes widespread on AT&T's or Verizon's network and it begins to make internet buzz and news, they will do all they can to stop it!!!

I do have one question though. Let's say I am NOT JB and I want to use the Google Voice Web App. Do I set it up the same way I have now and as described above by Watcher?
The reason I ask is that I tried the Web App out once and it worked just fine. I did notice though that when I called my son, a different number showed up on my screen that was not my GV number or his cell number. The call went through and my GV number showed up on his Caller ID, but the GV Web App displayed a different # other than his number. Do you think it still did NOT charge me for that call or what?
<Did that make sense?>:o

yes makes sense. I couldn't figure that one out either. You use the cydia app and your gv number shows on the display. Use the web app and a different number than gv number shows on display.
All I did was put my google voice number on my a list and all my out going calls are free. My work phone I forward all calls to my gv number and those calls are all free. No more carrying around two phones.

I have my Google Voice number on my A list. I don't use it very often though since most people that I call have AT&T. Hopefully they will get an app going for the iPhone like they had on my BlackBerry. I could even sent a text message too and from that number from my BlackBerry.

I removed the web app because of that. Plus it was like 3 apps to use all the features. I only use the cydia version GV+ and I love it, use it all the time. All my incoming and outgoing calls are all free due to my gv number being on my Alist.
