GrooveIP doesn't yield results if you want to call primarily. Also
"The $30 Unlimited Web & Text with 100 min talk plan works only with T-Mobile Phones purchased from a Walmart store or from Walmart.com."

I guess they call it Monthly 4G plan, but don't allow smartphones to be used. Never looked in detail.
You can use any (gsm) smartphones you want on this plan.

I use it on a Note 2 that I bought AND activated in a T-Mobile store. So that requirement is not as rigid as it sounds.

You can also order the SIM kit for $0.99 and activate it yourself on any GSM phone.

Another big fan of the "walmart plan" here. Been using it on my Galaxy Nexus since March I think and it's perfect for me.

I have the MyTouch 4G that I bought off Ebay and use the Walmart plan. So it'll work with phones not bought from Walmart. Just activated it online - never went to any store.

So, do you have to open an app to call? GroovIP or similar? How about when someone calls you? Does the app picks it up automatically or you have to have the app running all the time?

Its pretty seamless. If you dial a number or click on a number from a web page or something, you can have it so theres a popup asking if you want to use the phones dialer or GrooveIP/Talkatone.

The app will run in the background so it will allow incoming calls too. You just have to give people your secondary google voice number and let them know they need to call you on that one so your Tmobile minutes dont get used up.

Is there a way now to see who is calling you, instead your phone showing you your own GV number? been a while i did this for my Obi lol.

Edit: Nvm. It is default

I've played with using a data only sim and voip. I tried many of the voip apps, anything that used GoogleVoice/Gtalk, more often then not, had a 1 second delay. Of the Voip services I have tried, Skype worked the best, I paid for unlimited Skypeout and Skype in phone number. Even though Skype worked the best, it still stuttered often and would have drop outs. Fine for talking to friends but not good for business. All my testing was done using ATT HSPA+ with my unlimited Ipad sim in a Galaxy Note.

Many of the Voip apps allow you to have them running in the background in order to receive calls. For Skype there is a boot app that can automatically launch Skype in the background after a boot up.

I ended up going back to using a service with voice and data, voip was just not cutting for me and I'm a lite phone user.

I'm curious about this new offering because Straight Talk/Net10/Tracfone suck and more competition is needed.

Straight Talk has been working fine for me. I am not a streamer of YouTube on data, but other than that, i have seen no issues.

Need confirmation on roaming but that $35 plan looks killer. Most people have family, friends, and conduct business so that $30 walmart plan with 100min is useless.

Im still happy on my Walmart TMO plan. $30 for unlimited text, 100 mins of talk, and 5gb of data at 4g speeds then throttled to 2g after. Buying refill cards online you can pay like $26 a month tax free on the plan.
$5 says that plan is going wave Probably taking the $30 1500 talk/text plan with it.

I've had similar luck with voip. It seems to highly depend on the 3/4g network speeds / latency, and it always seemed to have issues for me. Wifi always works really well, so I use it only on wifi, and use cell minutes when I'm not within wifi range.

This has worked quite well for me, and since I do most of my talking at home, I've only gone over on minutes once (on the 100 minute Walmart plan).

If you're planning to use voip to supplement your minutes, I highly recommend trying it out for a month or two first, and see how well it works for you. In some areas it probably works really well, but I've never had that great of an experience except on wifi. There's just too much jitter / latency to make it work well.

I'd hardly call it useless. At $30 base, and $.10/min overages, I can still beat most post-paid plans when I need more minutes, and save a ton when I don't. For example, for $70 I have unlimited data and 500 minutes, cheaper than what I was paying on Verizon. Or I can use a VoIP app when on Wifi and have unlimited minutes when in the office or at home.

Forgot about that. At least you are one of the smart ones. Everyone I see posting here just switches to some shitty free voip solution after hitting 100min. Even when never using voice minutes, I still hit 300min.

The majority of people just want something in between those extremes to be useful. 300-500min + 500MB - 2GB. Hell, unlimited extremely throttled 4G for $35 seems great.

Wonder if wifi calling works since this is Tmobile backed? That would be great.

Where are you buying them that gets you $4 off $30? Link? That's a nice chunk of savings.
I bought three $50 cards at $39 each last week from Ebay. Gets me through April.

The $30 plan with the Nexus 4 is just pure joy. I love it.

FYI:

22% discount is below wholesale rates. You are aware there is a 99.9% chance those were stolen? Anything greater than 10% is fraud. When the credit cards get reported, Tmobile will kill your balance instantly.
