    How do you use Google Voice to make phone calls on ASUS Transformer?

    The title says it all essentially. I have been using Google Voice since it came out to make and receive calls to and from both from both my HTC Evo as well as my computer. So I just bought an ASUS Transformer, installed Google Voice, and it appears you can't do either from the Transformer.

    So my questions are:

    1) Why? ... why would they limit it's functionality on the Transformer? It should be not different than using it on a computer.

    2) Do they plan to upgrade Google Voice to support calling?

    3) Is there a work around? I saw someone mention a third party app for this ... but stated issues with having to turn off other apps to use it.

    Thanks,
    ZW

    Now that Skype is fully functional why not try that one for your phone calls?

    On the TF, I believe the app is called Chat. I do not have the App on my TF as I live outside the US and the service is not available here
    Check your Apps section for Chat.

    You need to use an app called grooveiP, which costs around 2-5$. Installed it couple days ago and works fine.
    Don't ask me why gvoice doesnt just work on theh tablet itself...

    I installed grooveIP yesterday. It runs Google Voice perfectly. It's definitely the solution.

    I installed grooveip and no call is connecting. Is it because I live in the UK?

    Give sipdroid a try
    Google voice is not for making calls just call forwarding and text messages. afaik
    So you most likely had some other app like sipdroid - sipgate grooveip or something.

    Sipdroid and gv work fine for me. Don't have to give them Google password to synch. Just Google user name and new password for pbxes account
