Hmmm....googleize my phone calls, makes me wonder...
How much info about me & my activities would this be sharing with the goog monster - and, does it 100% replace my dialer with phone AND GV (wifi-only) capabilities added ??

What impact does this have on incoming calls (eg; seeing contact name)?


When I did the manual *67. It shows private name, private number

I do not understand why it is gone in my phone app settings.

Redpocket. Called Verizon with no fix or manual fix on their end

Try the "Prefixer" app I posted about here:
www.nthcircle.com/forum/general/2969-substitute-calling-app?start=0#42087

Based on the app description, I think it may solve your problem.

GV is free, but you're really handing over data and possibly your secrets to the devil for it. That said, the new GV app can make calls using wifi, mobile data, or use your carrier minutes, so it can almost replace your native dialer.

From the GV app settings: "Making and receiving calls"

1. Prefer Wi-Fi and mobile data
Make and receive calls over Wi-Fi and mobile data when available. Carrier rates may apply if Wi-Fi is unavailable.

2. Use carrier only
Google Voice calls will use your phone's carrier minutes instead of Wi-Fi or mobile data. Carrier rates apply.

"Prefixer" came up in search results:

This would of been a solution to try. But when I click on link it is no longer on gp. I also searched on go. Not there anymore. Shame

I use Google voice for a sperate number. It is a backup. In case I only have wifi area
Don't want to try to mix the two numbers on one app


Thanks tried rp. Att and it sucks in my area. Half time 3g data. Dead area. ECT

TMobile Redpocket is better outside but signal at home bad -120db. Someone got a window booster so TMobile up to -100db. Also TMobile can not use YouMail. For whatever reason

I will test Verizon redpocket cdma outside tomorrow and this week. If signal is better and the fact I can use YouMail I might have to live without the caller I'd block thing

It is just showing phone number and wireless caller not name

2 very good sources if one knows how to side-load apps:
apkpure.com/prefixer/com.tftbelow.prefixer
prefixer.en.aptoide.com/
Just because gp deletes stuff - it isn't necessarily or actually gone.

I'm afraid google already has it's hooks pretty deeply into my data and my secrets. I don't particularly like it, but I also haven't been willing to go to extremes to prevent it. Is there a reason to suspect GV mines more than GMail, Google Search, Google Play, Google Contacts, Google Photo, Google Calendar, etc? (I don't use the last 2, but haven't avoided the others.....)

Ya ty,. Just tried it. Works but notification that it is working for each call is annoying.

I just wished my phone app still had the choice. It worked behind scenes.
