hello everyone!
i just got a verizon galaxy tab last week.
after hours of pulling my hair out and trying everything here is the combo i got phone calls in and out working on my tab!!
here's what i did;
1. "google voice" app download it
2. sign up for "google voice"number and voicemail...
BUT
- here is the prob! google voice needs to verify your cel (lol doh!ughg i cant get calls !!!)SO<<<< i used a friends cel to get the 2 digit confirmation
number to verify the phone>>>>>>.
3. google voice number assignment success...

*******please remember when setting up your google voice to have it set to send calls to google chat not to your cel #!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4. get "groove ip" app. its 4$. it works!!! hey people this apps makes our verizon tabs work as a phone why the hell not pay the people that made this app!!!
5. launch the "groove ip "app sign in and adjust any settings you need to adjust...
6. you cant use verizon # but oh well who cares .. now your tab is a huge freaky phone!!!i can send and rec texts with my "Real" verizon cel # from the beginning but wanted to make calls... skype works fine to make calls but i couldnt get any so thats why i tried "groove ip "...
7. i really love my tab... had eken m001,epads,etc they were such cheap shitty tablets. this thing is solid !
i am not a computer expert so if i seemed too happy about getting this working i am sorry...
the only glitch is sometimes doesnt rememebr my googlevoice password on groove ip but oh well just re enter it!!! and keep it running in background......
i hope this helps someone that wants to make cell phone calls with their verizon tab!!!

Yes. I got this working on my Sprint GT a few weeks ago. Works beautifully internationally. Free calls to and from the US! I've even now got GrooveIP assigned to my phone dock button in Launcher Pro.

Let me just add a word of caution the us carriers do not like you using the tab to make phone calls why I don't know. They might give you some crap about it. If they don't then that is great cause maybe they have relaxed their standards a little bit.

You rock! I just got mine to work with youor instructions ... BIG @$$ phone~!~!~ too bad 1/4 jack does not support mic for a head set. Speaker phone will be annoying until I get used to it.

1/8" jack on mine supports mic just fine. I'm using a blackberry headphone/mic.
