I've got this Droid X, it's not activated, and I'd like to use Google Voice as the provider (this means it will be Wi-Fi only; that's OK.)

Problem is, Google Voice needs the phone to have a number before it will let me use it as the provider. I already have a Google voice number set up, but I can't figure out what to do next.

What I'm envisioning is:

  • The phone's dialer will make the calls through Google Voice (absolutely essential)
  • Voicemails will work (would be very nice)
  • I can text from the native texter (not critical at all)

What do I need to do?


Check out the free version of 'GrooVe IP Lite' in the Play Store. The Free version utilizes Google Voice over WiFi only, but that's all you're asking for so you should be golden.

  • Thanks! Would be better if I didn't have to deal with Ads, but this looks like it's what I'm looking for. Will accept the answer once I finish a test call. – JamesTheAwesomeDude Jul 8 '13 at 20:48
  • Perfect! It worked! I'd prefer ad-free, with the native dialer, but those cost money, and the free version works. :) – JamesTheAwesomeDude Jul 8 '13 at 21:40
