    Hello all,

    If your like me and have Google Voice and a TouchPad with a paired phone, I have a little Easter Egg for you.

    You can use Shortcut Launcher for TouchPad to create one button dialer shortcuts for calling with your Google Voice to your favorite pal, or Google Voicemail. You can even use this method to call your work voicemail (if you must).

    1. Launch Shortcut Launcher
    2. Choose "Phone Dialer Shortcut" from the drop-down menu
    3. Choose a image for your shortcut (a nice face shot of any size works good. Does not need to be an icon).
    4. Enter in numbers in the following formats:

    If you want to call Google voice mail with the phone setup in your Google Voice account:
    15555551212 < just use your ten digit Google Voice number

    If you want to call someone using your Google Voice number on a setup phone:
    15555551212p*p2p15555551234# < your google number, pause, star, pause, 2, pause, the number to call

    If your paired phone is not setup with Google Voice
    15555551212p*p3333p*2p15555551234# < your gvoice number, pause, *, pause, your pin, pause, star, 2, pause, the number to call

    Work voicemail
    15551234p*p4321 < you work phone number, the button to kick to voicemail (*?) and your pin.

    5. Name the Shortcut
    6. Press the "Add to Launcher" button.

    This has been tested on Veer, Pre3, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3Gs

    Show off some of your icons for Shortcuts. We'd love to see 'em.

    Just tested with paired phone (veer) and my car BT and worked flawlessly. So I hit the shortcut, it dailed through paired phone that was connected to the Car BT to my callee. Cool!

    This is important to me because I have an IPBX that hosts two google numbers which represent my business and home. I can call people and appear to be at those numbers and keep my cell phone number hidden.

    Has anyone else had trouble with certain characters in the dialer? Like '#' or "*'. I've got a veer that is not dialing with these characters in the dialer string. It is killing my app too. It works fine on my Pre3, 4G TP and Wifi TP.

    I'm thinking its just this veer. I am going to doctor it tomorrow but I wanted to know if anyone else has seen this.
