    Thanks for the info Harsh…

    Is there any way to make free calls from/to UK ;)

  3. Mani Viswanathan says:

    Nice trick. Bookmarked for future reference (Since I will be trying it out when I’m free :P)

  4. Very informative post.
    Just one thing I’m confused about, which number do I give my US friends to call me ?
    The GVoice number or the IPKall number ?

  5. And how do you enter the code on X-Lite ?
    I got the call, I received the call, and I enter the code. Then what ? Should I hang up or should I wait for it to hang up automatically ?

  6. Harsh, Thanks a lot for sharing this post. Really Useful !

  7. It will be disconnected automatically and your GVC account will be activated..!!

  8. @Prabal
    Thanks..I hope you got your GVC account by now.. :)

  9. @Rohit
    GVC number..Watch out for next post where I will be sharing how you can make call it be diverted on your GTalk account instead of that incoming no…

  10. @Mani
    You should try this.. DIY stuff are really fun to do.. :)

  11. @Guna Is your Softphone open.. You are supposed to receive a call on your Softphone number and you have to dial those two codes which you get at last step to verify yourself..!!

  12. Okay.
    Thanks a lot, I finally got myself a number.
    So can I uninstall stop using the proxy after I get the Google Voice number ?
    And when I make calls from X-Lite are they free or are they charged ? If charged, do I recharge the sip account or the Gvoice account ?
    Sorry. I’m just too confused.

  13. That’s cool.
    I was wondering when will this Google Voice be launched in India.
    All thanks to proxy!!
    Nice trick Harsh.

  14. I was stuck there too.
    The trick is, pick up. wait for 14-15 seconds, then dial the code, you’ll be done.
    Do not hang up. Wait for it to auto hang up.

  15. Hey Rohit
    I understand your questions and it was confusing for me at initial point but yes here are things:
    1. You can stop using proxy site/software now.
    2. You can uninstall Xlite but you need to change your Google voice setting to forward call and sms to Gtalk

  16. DUDE , it WORKS for INDIA also .. free :D :D Luv CAG..
    wooooopie.. :) :)

  17. Kunal even I was waiting for GVC to launched in India, but seems like it will take some time, but no worries now you can use it by using this little trick :)

  18. To all, free CALLS to INDIA also .. Enjoy .. :D Luv u CAG :) :)

  19. Thanks a million man.
    Last Question:
    Gtalk with voice would support free calls to US ?
    and one more thing. IpKall and Tpad says inactive numbers are deactivated within 30 days, so wouldn’t uninstalling xlite automatically deactivate the Tpad sip account ?

    Thanks man. You did a great job.
    Looking forward to more such cool posts.

  20. Sorry for wrong information only 1-2 minute balance for india, but still CAG is best. :D

  21. Hi Bro,
    Great trick , keep posting interesting DIY like this they are fun to experiment :)
    And I was luking for some SIP for local calls within country
    Can some SIP provide cheap calls then our local network providers like Airtel etc. ?

  22. That free call is because of free credit of $.10 which you get when you sign up for GVC.

    Harsh ! Really great tutorial. It took lot many time of mine but finally I got the Google Voice number. So Gr8. thanks for sharing such a nice tricks.

  24. Thanks for sharing nice post.it vry useful.

  25. Umm..! I didn’t understand quite of what you did in above tutorial?

  26. Nice post Harsh. But I wonder what happens when Google eventually rolls out Google Voice worldwide – as they must do at some point. You’ve linked a US Google Voice number to your Gmail account. I wonder if in future you’d be able to change this to your local Google Voice number – or if you’re now stuck with the US number.

  27. Akshay Khurana says:

    Google is no God, nicely tweaked Harsh. ;-)

  28. Hey Harsh nice idea to follow this tutorial to use Google Voice but i am wondering what happens when Google know about this trick? Permanently account banned or Permanently IP banned haa??

  29. I got a # from IPKall, but when I try registering it with GVC, I get the following error: This number is already being used on two other Google Voice accounts. Forwarding numbers cannot be shared across more than two accounts.

    Any solution?

  30. Hey harsh,
    What should I put as domain in softphone settings ? sip.tpad.com or sipx.tpad.com ? Please help…

  31. Thanks for sharing nice post

  32. Nasif it would be sipx.tpad.com

  33. Mahesh this is a known error..I would suggest try and try again.. It sounds funny but many people got it done after 19th attempt..Else wait for couple of hours and try again..!!
    This is the same error which my frd got today while I was helping him…

  34. I don’t believe so..We are not hacking into their system..We are just using a part of system which is available..!!!

  35. You can change your number :)

  36. Chetan do let us know which part you couldn’t understand…

  37. That’s great Jaydip. Now don’t forget to read this tutorial and set everything for your Gmail and gTalk:

  38. Mohammed Tanveer says:

    Hmmm let me try using a new account.

    Thanks Harsh and have a nice day!

  39. Can i use my local Indian number?

  40. Nope you cant use your local indian number for now until google voice is released to the international public.

    Btw, Harsh I was wondering if there is any cheap call forwarder service available? Coz it would be great if i can forward that us no. To my mobile no.

  41. i tried all the steps. When i enter the forwarding phone number,the one that I got from ipkall.com, google voice registration shows an error message that says this number is already being used on two other accounts and cannot be shared further.
    WHat shud I do now?

  42. Hey harsh,
    I tried to register on google voice, did everything u mentioned, but when entering the forwarding phone on GVC, it says tht this number is already being used by two other accounts and cant be shared further. You have also mentioned somewhere tht u got it in 19th try, i think i did so many and with a gap of an hour or so, but no luck!!!

  43. Yup, me too.. says that all the numbers are being used on two other google voice accounts.. sigh.. after all that effort.. is there any way around this part?

  44. First of all, thanks Harish for sharing this post. It worked for me well..Yippee I got a GVC at last..but not before the same problem as Chaitanya and Shael..

    @ Chaitanya and Shael: I too faced the same problem, I was able to register it only after signing up for Tpad and Ipkall for 3 different gmail ids which I already had! Luckily , the IpKall number for my 3rd account was free..Try signing up for different gmail ids if you have patience!

  45. Thanks harsh will give a try it!!
    anyways do you any trick to call within india or to hide caller id india?

  46. Q….I want to use my office broadband connection with its username and password at home

    Dear Harsh,
    I am not able to add the forwarding phone number which i got from ipkall and configured on X-lite. every time i get the error message saying that ” There was an error with your request. Please try again.” so i am not able to get the voice number in initial set-up only.
    please help me.
    Regards, Mrinal
