    can i use google voice with virgin mobile?

    Hello!
    I am interested in signing up with Virgin Mobile $25 unlimited data/300 voice minutes.

    What I want to know is if it is possible to use the Google Voice app to make and receive calls under the Virgin data plan, this way I would only need the 300 minutes plan instead of getting the more expensive unlimited plan.

    Thanks in advance for any help! Also, I would be getting the Intercept phone to use with this plan. Would that work to download the GV android app?

    AFAIK, You can use GV, but all voice calls in/out use plan minutes - they are not carried over data

    That's correct. To get "free" voice minutes with Google Voice, you would need to use a VoIP app with Google Voice. There are other threads discussing this, but the bottom line is that it's complicated to set up and use and the audio quality on the calls is fair to poor.

    I do not know if the GV app works for the RT or not.

    This is the thread regarding getting 3rd party apps working on the RT:
