"Hi, I plan on using the Fido data plan with voip.ms & GV #. I’m in a process of porting a Fido Cdn # to voip.ms. Is it possible to use the voip.ms call forwarding to GV #? I am already calling out using GV app on android phone, but some people don’t want to make a LD call to my US GV #. I thought this way my Canadian friends can call the voip.ms Cdn #, but I can still receive those calls in GV app as well. Is this possible or best way to use both GV and voip.ms, using the Fido data plan? I am hoping that I don’t have to install a third telephone app (in addition to the native dialer app and GV app). Also wondering app conflict issues, e.g. what happens if I receive 2 calls at the same time (1 to GV #, 1 to voip.ms #).
How is the call quality between GV app and other apps that other voip.ms users are using? Is it worth having the third softphone app?
Also is it possible to block all data usage on my smart phone except for 1 or 2 phone apps most of the time (so that I can answer calls), then turn on data for other things as needed? I’ve read some articles on how to control data usage, but I have not been able to find what I am looking for.
BTW I also have a FPL # (not a Fongo #), which I only use for vm & to receive fax.
note - voice & text are disabled in the Fido data only plan.
Is this the main voip.ms discussion thread?
