    If I use my GV number to dial a mobile number would that fall under a landline or mobile?

    I'm assuming it'll be counted against my plan's minutes. Anyone have experience with this?

    I just tried and it told me it was a free call.

    Sure that isn't because it's evening?

    I guess it will be free because I am calling my mobile from my mobile and then dialing a number. Right?

    That free call message is actually Google Voice telling you it is free since it was an in US call. They offer cheap international rates for dialling out of the country.

    I have not yet established whether GV numbers are being treated as mobile numbers under the new Sprint Any Mobile plan, so for now treat it as if it is using minutes just to be safe.

    No, Google Voice said it was free. This has nothing to do with what Sprint is charging you for airtime. My Google Voice shows up as a landline number on my billing.
    Your Pre wants Word Whirl from the App Catalog.

    It told me.

    Google Voice is recognized as a land line by cellular carriers. So now, the call wouldnt fall under the new unlimited mobile-to-mobile.

    Is GV # a land line or cell phone number? - Google Voice Help

    If you do a reverse lookup at WhereCall.com using your GV #, it displays it as a land line.

    A little OT, but if someone calls you from outside the country, do you have to pay for GV or is it also a free call?

    I don't really know the answer to this, but I will go ahead & assume that it is a free call. You cannot control who calls you. We shouldn't be penalized for that.

    oooo this is a good point.... now i really do not know
    Sprint sees that your landline is a landline, and does a nifty automagic conversion from text to unintelligible computer voice.

    When you text a GV from Sprint, they don't convert it to unintelligible voice, right? So I'd vote that GV # is a mobile #.

    My google voice number shows up as a Sprint landline. Do you get free calling to Sprint landlines(does Sprint even have landlines)?

    If you're talking about the GV 406 numbers, they must be somehow flagged as being able to receive text messages. Or they were bought as cell numbers. I dunno.

    But your actual GV number shows as a land line.

    Are 406 numbers any different from the others? Mine is a 412.

    There's some other threads about calling Sprint cust serv and adding an option on your plan to get free incoming/outgoing calls with specific numbers you pick, someone called it Pick3 or Pick5. I got this option added and my GV number is one of them, so I'm getting free calls to/from GV. Also have a few mobile numbers that were added that is redundant at this point with their new plan.

    Wait, if this is true, then how come even if you text your actual Google Voice number and not one of those 406 numbers, it still doesn't convert it to that weird voice?

    that is known the point to this thread is to find out if google voice numbers are considered land line or mobile also be useful to know if 406 numbers are mobile or landline

    Mine is a 520-223 #### which is where my parents live, by default all 223 prefixes are mobile numbers, I guess I'll do more research

    Simply everything gets unlimited to mobile or landline, even if you are roaming. You don't have to worry about any national calls
