Google Voice Discovered Allowing Pure VoIP Calls 110

From the article "Google Voice users learned late Monday that the service now has a way of making purely Internet-based phone calls. Making a SIP call with a 'sip:' prefix, the Google Voice phone number and @sip.voice.google.com skips the conventional phone network entirely, saving users cellphone minutes. Disruptive Telephony tested it and found that a call worked 'great.'"

    Unless I'm misreading the chart, it seems like gvoice has SRTP encryption.

    After purchasing gizmo5, they destroyed my home phone service. I was not allowed to renew my call in number forcing me to use google voice to rout my incoming calls. At the same time, they took away my year subscription to modify my outgoing caller id with the purchase caller ID option, they refunded me by giving me $4 of call out minutes (dumb asses!). Every time I call out, the call appears to be coming from a number that has now been canceled for about a year, and cannot be modified. Now, about a week ago, they informed gizmo5 users that they are recalling all call out minutes. I have not been able to contact Google/gizmo5 ever since this all started, about a year ago. This is my home phone service they keep fucking with, and they offered no support (which was originally included in my gizmo5 purchase agreement).

    This is no different to me then AT&T deciding they would quit supporting my land line because there are more profitable things to do with it. I was not even given the opportunity to yell at anyone, and now I am a ticking time bomb because of it. FUCK GOOGLE!!! Sony is the new Microsoft, and Google is the new sonny. I am going to have to resort to bing? What's this world coming to?

    You don't. I cancelled my voice plan with Verizon. I'm at $50 a month right now for my data-only Droid contract.

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
