    This hacked app is for an Android phone though, while installing it asks for "this phone's number" what did you do there?

    While cool that he got it working, I think what we need is the "Google Voice web page" as an app.

    Thanks though, I'm still going to try it!

    The app is the full Google Voice app. If you have already gotten yourself a Google Voice number, then it can be set up to use that. For more information on getting one you can go to www.google.com/voice. I actually have mine set up so that I can use it for texting on my G Tablet, I really have no need for voice since I have a separate cellphone, but there are ways to additionally configure it to do voice. you will need to set up something like SIP Droid to get that additional functions to work.

    cheers,
    Peter
