  • 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).

      I have not seen any invites except my own - is this something you see when you log in to your phone?

      I want the feature that allows you to see all calls made on a certain day, times the calls were placed and having the ability to send it as an email. Purpose: say your working at home calling people for your sales/music staff and you need to show them the calls, length of time, et-cetera.

      Where can I submit ideas?

      Dark, as soon as I get invites, if you still don;t have one, I'd be happy to invite you. I'll keep checking until I get them. Don't see them yet on my account though.

      What section?

      Looking at my inbox now to GVMobile...

      I see Send feedback | Settings | Help | Sign out

      Then on the left, the

      Is there somewhere I should be looking?

      Thanks.

      As will I....

      Of course the calls are not free unless you add to you A-List, but that's still pricey at 89.00 a month plus data plan, but I suppose if I use it all the time, it would count as free minutes.

      Actually if you spend 59$ on a single plan and $89 for a family plan, you can each add 5 phone lines on what they call A list. Add the gv mobile and all calls are free but with paychecks taking a flat 10% for state and sales tax at 9,25. It might be time to cut the loss with anf pay for mobilePCS. FLAT $50 a month. Thing is, coveage, 3g or 4g and how would I use Internet. Anyone look into. Just woke up. Typing bad on iPhone when just waking up.

      Sooty. Tired meant metroPCS. phone is 3,0 jailbroken not unlocked.

      Yep, working great on 3.1.2. For a while a I was using the webapp since people said it was just as good, but that's rotten advice. I'm finding GVmobile as useful as the native phone APP. Google Voice really rocks on the jailbroken iphone by the way. It works awesome as a SIP solution too. I have rotten coverage in my office and my apartment (yea, AT&T blows) but with google voice I have my office phone ring, so it's no problem there. And I got a free SIP account with Gizmo that integrates easily with google voice (just google gizmo5 and googlevoice for easy setup instructions). Now I run Fring in the background (with backgrounder) and keepawake SBsettings toggle so I can receive google voice calls in my apt over WIFI on Fring (and make google voice phone calls). Pretty sweet.

      You might want to log in to your GV account and disable sms forwarding.......just to make sure it doesn't count toward your plan.

      I love the free unlimited SMS. I'm not sure I am doing it right though. Any thoughts as to how I can SMS without using my plan txts? I am a little confused with this process.

      Thanks for any help.

      I'm glad I finally jailbroke my 3G after procrastinating for a year. It's so much better than before. I was one of those who went to 3.1 then decided to downgrade to 3.0.1 for jailbreaking purposes. I used iPhone1,2_3.1_7C144_Custom_Restore_768mb_Activated .ipsw then used redsn0w to finish the process.



      This must be a bug. This happens intermittently to me also.

      So I have set up Gizmo5 w/ Siphone (found on Cydia) using Google Voice and GV Mobile (also found on Cydia), this thing rocks! I will be traveling to Canada, and unlocked my phone so I could get a SIM. That way I could keep in touch with my kids and such. But with Backgrounder (also on Cydia) running Siphone, I am able to get all of my calls via WiFi and not touch the mobile network in Canada. This will make for a great alternative w/o having to worry about roaming charges or what not... This makes for a fantastic world traveling option. I know that you need WiFi to make it work, but that will be fine for me. And since I have my Google Voice number in my A List I have the best of all worlds, local and abroad.

      Yes I have done that already but thanks for the advice.

      I was just wondering if there was a way to get around sms text messages from counting towards my AT&T plan from my iPhone. I doubt it but some of you guys are very creative out there...

      That's a great idea! Thanks.

      Disabling sms forwarding to phone numbers and enabling sms forwarding to email (push gmail) let's me entirely bypass using text messages.

      Pros:
      - UNLIMITED MESSAGING

      Con (more UI than actual con)
      - No MMS (Google's working on it)
      - Have to use email app so the messaging app is useless.

      To add fuel to the fire, Android phones can integrate GV into most of their functions without having to root/jailbreak.

      I have a question, when I try to make a phone call with GV, it will ring my phone and I have to answer it first before it connect to the person I call. Anyway can disable that?

      I have a lot of Google Wave invites left and I don't really feel like waiting til Google gets around and sends me the invite for Google Voice. So, does anyone have an invite for Google Voice that they want to trade for a Google Wave invite? Let me know ASAP, I'm looking forward to trying GV.
