  • GV Mobile Now on Cydia [ ModMyi Repo ]

    Maybe you've seen GV Mobile was tossed out of the AppStore. Apple's "hey, we have apps that do that too... you can't be in here!" attitude is well documented (remember Podcaster? which wound up on Cydia in the MMi repo as well?), and once again a great app has been pushed out of folks' hands so Apple can minimize the competition.

    Well don't you worry, all you folks who still wanted the app - we've got it up in Cydia now and you can download away - completely free. Although, if you're nice, you'll toss Sean a few bucks donation for his work.

    EDIT: If you were having any issues installing version 1.2, grab 1.2.1 which is up now on Cydia - it fixes the issue!

    And for those of you who don't know what GV Mobile is, its brings the power of Google Voice to your iPhone.

    Google Voice is NOT a VOIP service, you still need an actual phone plan.

    GV Mobile allows users of Google Voice to:
    • dial numbers via the iPhone address book or typing on the keypad
    • Full SMS support (view historic, reply, send new)
    • retrieve and delete recent call history
    • playback and delete voicemails
    • take calls from different phones other than your iPhone
    • enable or disable the phones that Google Voice forwards calls to
    • add or delete phones that Google Voice forwards call to.

    Google Voice is currently in beta and invite only, but expect those floodgates to open soon enough when they remove the invite only restriction.

    (GV Mobile is not a product of Google).

      Still a bit in the dark about this app, on one hand Apple says they fear or rather AT&T fears losing revenue from calls made over the internet.

      On the other, I read you still have to have a cell phone plan, so, what is the real scoop on this?

      Asked for my invite a few days ago. Would do the .99 cents but do not have paypal.

      Thanks all.

      PS> I d/l some app that tricks your phone into thinking its running on Wifi when its really using 3G, does anyone know where it goes or is located? I am interested in it for d/l podcasts that are larger than 10MB, or does it just go into effect when its on 3G and there is something that is supposed to be on wifi?

      Also, is there anything out there at ALL that allows me to make FREE internet calls to land lines and other mobile phones?

      Thank you. ..

      when I tried to install from Cydia, it gives a message "Cannot Comply". Any idea why? Any help is appreciated.

      My current iPhone version is 2.2 with 04.05.04_G firmware.

      Read somewhere you can buy invites from ebay - saw none listed. Been three weeks for me, okay, maybe two weeks.

      Also, is there a way to send free TEXT messages without using your ATT texts.

      Send them through GV Mobile? Without a GV Account though, no idea.
