Google Voice for Droid

I finally found a substantive use for google voice. There's an app to run it from my Verizon Wireless Motorola Droid. I have tried it using WiFi. Next I'll try it using the Verizon Wireless 3G network. That should work, too.

When using the Verizon Wireless 3G network to make google voice calls, what will be increased:

1. voice plan minutes
2. data plan bytes?

If data plan bytes, it seems that one could use google voice all the time and not incur any voice plan minutes to make outgoing calls. That would be cool.

I bought the Motorola Droid for Verizon Wireless. Best feature, which is also totally under appreciated in formal reviews:


The damn thing does auto sync directly between the Droid and gmail contacts and calendar! No PC! That revolting iPod Touch that I tried for a day required a PC to get it started so that the evil Apple Computers, Inc. could force you to register with its money sucking iTunes software. That's just to get the iPod Touch started. If you simply wanted to connect to the Internet and not listen to music you could not!

Google's FREE syncing works well, although a contact's address is still a one field mess in gmail. In the Droid postal address, as it is known, is broken into discreet fields.
