How to bypass Google voice country restrictions for free

Did you try to subscribe to Google Voice but where stuck on a message like this:

Google Voice is not available in your country.
Thanks for visiting Google Voice.
We're not yet open for users outside the US,
but are planning to expand our service to additional countries in the future.


Steps:
  1. Register for a google voice invitation. Be patient it can take one year to come https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googlevoiceinvite/
    When you receive your Google Voice invitation, process to the next step
  2. Create a free SIP account with Iptel http://serweb.iptel.org/user/reg/index.php
  3. Configure your VOIP router or Softphone to receive calls from the SIP account you created on step one
    Register a free US DID on your Iptel SIP account.
    [INDENT]
    • SIP Phone number: your IPtel user name (ex: Jonh.Smith)
    • SIP Proxy: iptel.org
    [/INDENT]
  4. Test your US DID. If you don't want to pay for long distance call, you can use iCall http://www.icall.com/free-phone-calls/
  5. Download and install a US VPN (HotSpot Shield) http://hotspotshield.com/
  6. Launch Hotspot Shield
  7. Click on your Google Voice invitation (see, no more country restriction message)
  8. Choose your new US phone number
  9. When requested, enter the US phone number you created with IPKall
Have fun

Now, if only we could get Google to offer those invites a little quicker.

Hey there - I had my Grand Central account switched over to GoogleVoice and it works fine forwarding calls to my Canadian numbers. No charge. You may want to check it out.

Good luck,

hey phantomjt - i researched this and found that before you convert, ensure that you have your canadian #'s saved in the 'phones' in settings. But I have read that several users can't call free canadian # because they're being charged .1 cent a minute.

I got the invitation. That was pretty fast.
How long did it take to receive an invitation? Did you sign up with a gmail email?

True - I cannot call canadian numbers for free (which is silly)...but we have plenty of family in the US so we have google voice call our CND number to connect the call. You cant beat free US long distance. The quality is amazing. They'll probably open it up to canadian calls within the year or so. They did it with Goog411.
