    I am trying to see if I can do that. Not sure I can pull it off though. I think Alli has done it though.

    Yeah I have my google voice as my A list so far so good on this end. I been doing that though since the Tmo days on my blackberry when they use to be known as grandcentral.

    Yup and yup. So far so good. The only ones unhappy about this turn of events are the students, cause I'll now call their parents right in the middle of class if necessary!

    i'm gonna try it for about a month....but as i look through my call history i don't see my google number on there at all.....

    every call i have placed with google voice is listed on my call history as my own number....
    i says incoming for type of call...then my 7 digit cell number as the from #... I am not sure what that means....ill keep an eye on it.....

    Other than that....google voice is a pretty awesome invention....especially if im not getting charged mins for its use...

    EDIT: After a little more research...i found that if i use the internet to make a call, it wont count as an A-List number....but if i call the google number and place a call through them it will....

    it is a little confusing....i will still keep an eye on it though.

    Ok I have google voice now and I downloaded the app. So is it possible to make and receive calls not charged to minutes from AT&T? What is the A list?

    Never mind about the A list I dont qualify for that. So due to that I can't make or receive calls without them being charged to my minutes?

    Correct. Google Voice is not a voip program, it is merely a switchboard.

    Hmmm decision to make. Any other benefits to having it then? Why use it then? Might have to delete this one if there is no use.

    Tremendous benefits for many people. I know sales warriors who use it so that they can answer the same number on the road, at the office, or at home without having to hand out multiple numbers saying "if there's no answer here, try this one, and if you still can't get me there...." You get the idea. I give my GV number to my students so I can control when they can contact me, yet GV's voice mail is more dependable than our office staff when parents call.

    There is no way to call into the google voice, correct. Like if I wanted to forward my work number into the google voice. I guess I'm trying to find a way to use the a list for incoming and outgoing calls.

    You have it backwards. You don't forward your work number to GV, you answer your GV number at work. It, in essence, becomes your every number. The purpose of the jb GV Mobile app is so that you can use it for both incoming and outgoing, and your callers will dial your GV number no matter where you answer it, and when you call them, they'll see your GV number on their caller id, no matter what phone (number) you call them from.

    So this is where I made my mistake? I used my existing number I didn't get a new google number. So Alli the feature you've explained I guess I can't do?

    They gave me the option to use existing number or get a new google number.

    Will it let you change numbers?

    I don't think it will. I read they may let you port ur number in the future but not yet. I was hoping that someone might be able to tell me how to do it. All as I can do now is any phones I have if someone leaves a message on any of them they all go to one location which is google voice mail. But I can't use one number to actually receive or make calls. Do I make sense?

    Yup. You're using GV opposite of the way most people are. Be worth the $10 to change the GV number if you can.

    $10? You know something I don't?

    For $10, GV will sell you a new number. It's in your settings.

    Man I can't find that anywhere. Only thing I can find is buy calling credit for $10. I would spend the $10 though to get a gv number!

    How are you getting free incoming calls using A-list? I get the outgoing ones because my GV number shows up on caller ID, I answer and then it calls who I want. But for incoming calls, it shows the caller ID of whoever is calling my GV number; which are not on my A-list.
