  • 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).

      This is probably going to get asked over and over so PF feel free to throw a "Google Voice is NOT a VOIP service, you still need an actual phone plan" note somewhere.

      Mine too. I enter my username and password, select remember me and then click done. Shows the signing in icon and then crashes back to my home screen. Saw a post that there is going to be an update due to a protection issue, i just downloaded it so it's possible the update has not came out yet.

      Invites are sent out when google is ready to add more users. If you weren't in the first round of invites, you'll need to get on the list and wait until they are ready to accept more users. Could be a week, a month or longer.

      Lifehacker has a lot of good posts on Google Voice for those who don't have a clue what it is. This should be a spot for the GV Mobile APP related questions, not Google Voice itself, as there is plenty of information on it elsewhere.

      The invites are only being handed out through Google as they can hand them out. People with Google Voice accounts already don't have the ability to send out invites to other people.

      Request Invites through this link, it will take some time, like someone else said - days, weeks or months, no one really knows, it's all up to them. (Mine took a couple of weeks if i remember correctly)

      Be prepared to wait for awhile. If you don't want to wait, there are many invites for sale around $25. I wish we could send invites from our accounts
