Alternatives to Google Voice

iOS & iPadOS

Are there any services that will allow calls to be made from an internet connection aside from Google Voice? I've found that even though GV Connect is a great accessible app for Google Voice it has limitations that require the use of the main Google Voice site. Unfortunately I find the site to be overly complicated and difficult to navigate. Any resources you can point me towards will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hello There,

The subject line says it all. You can pretty much do everything with Skype that you can do with google voice, except you have to pay(premium services) whereas google voice is free. Personally, I would just continue to use google voice as it is a better option, but Skype is another. -Andrew-

Bah, no need for skype's inbound and outbound call payment cat-dung. Textnow is free, and as long as you don't get the "classic" app, you're fine. Plus, it has area-codes everywhere.
