Your Questions About Google Voice

September 11, 2012

Laura asks…

How does Google Voice work when you have no cell phone reception?

Can anyone explain in steps? I’m a little lost. But anyways, yeah I’m basically moving to an area where there’s no cell phone reception for calling/texting. There’s wi-fi and I have been suggested Google Voice for texting/calling. Can anyone care to explain?

Administrator answers:

Google Voice is a service by Google (obviously) that gives you a single phone number that you can give to people. Calling this number will forward calls to your home phone, work phone, or cell phone. With this service, Google also offers free texting and calling through internet connected devices.

First, sign up for Google Voice at, then follow these steps to place calls/texts

For free CALLING through Google:
1. On your computer: go to, and simply place a call through the Chat box.
2. On your Android device: use an app such as GrooVe IP ($4.99) to place calls through your internet connection.

For free TEXTING through Google:
1. On your computer: navigate to and start a new text message.
2. On your Android device: either use the official Google Voice app, or GrooVe IP.
