just download it right off this site on to your tab and it should be in your sdcard/download folder install from there
Hi, Sstevens,holy crap, I got it to work, FLAWLESSLY!!!! Max you're THE Man! Thanks for the info!!!
very nice workI have Verison Galaxy Tab, using 3G and Wi-Fi. I was disappointed that Google Talk & Voice on Android doesn't provide the same features that it does on a PC where I can chat, voice chat, video chat and place and receive phone calls. However, after a lot of experimenting, I've pieced together several apps to get much of the functionality.
Google Talk works fine for chatting (IM)
Skype provides voice chat to users with Skype for free.
NetTalk (Market) provides free calling to US & Canada phones (works on Verison 3G too).
CSipSimple provides a free soft phone for VOIP that works with many sip providers.
sipgate.com provides a free (415) phone number and free incoming calls (outgoing calls cost) for VOIP.
Google Voice can be linked to the sipgate phone number to provide a local number to call.
I can now place and receive phone calls for free on my tablet. I haven't experimented with video calls yet.
Here is a quick how to get Skype and Google Voice working on the Tab... This gives unlimited calling out and receiving calls via Skype VOIP..
I have been using it for a day now and it works great via wifi and 3G...
So here is what I did... I now have a working VOIP phone service via my T-Mobile Tab..
-- Get the hacked Skype App (allows 3G calling) MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
-- Get Google Voice from Market
-- Go to skype.com and setup an account
-- Order a Skype Internet Number (it's $30 for a year right now -- normally $60)
-- Add a Skype calling plan ( I went with $2.99 a month for unlimited calling)
-- Set Skype to display your Google Voice Number (Caller ID Settings)
-- Set Google Voice to forward all calls to your Skype number
-- Go into Google Voice App and set it up to use your Skype number for voicemail notifications.
It works and it works pretty darn well...
--Incoming and outgoing voice capabilities
--Unlimited calling in the US and Canada for $2.99 a month
--With 3G data plan you always have phone functions to dial out and receive....
--You will have 2 numbers. The one that came on your Tab that is used for SMS/MMS and a number for phone usage. No worries for me though as I give out the Google Voice number as my home number anyway...
--Price for this to work per year amounts to $66 ($30 for the Skype number and $36 for the unlimited plan) Not really a con if you consider this is the total cost for a year of unlimited cell (VOIP) calls from you Tab
Here is how it works...
When someone calls your Google Voice number it forwards it to the Skype number and the Tab rings...
When you call someone it displays your Google Voice number...
