I have GV setup on my Note 3 to make ALL of my phone calls. It's been that way for a year and has functioned flawlessly. I place a call on my phone and it connects through GV with very little delay, maybe a second or 2, and otherwise a perfect call. Fast forward to Google Voice being integrated into Hangouts. Now you can opt to receive SMS and GV Voicemail in Hangouts. You can also dial out straight through Hangouts, but this is VOIP and not going through your carrier like the old GV app functioned. So I set my SMS and GV voicemail to go through Hangouts, but I noticed some VERY weird behavior. Now when I go to make a call NOT from hangouts but from my regular Android dialer I get stuck on a screen saying "Calling via Google Voice" with a spinning dial for literally minutes (see first picture). After a minute or two the call fails and it says "Google Voice could not connect"(see 2nd picture). After that I retry and most of the time the 2nd calls goes through although it still takes a long time, sometimes it does fail a 2nd time though. Since then I've uninstalled the Hangouts dialer and turned off SMS/GV voicemail inside hangouts. But the same exact behavior persists. I'm so bummed as I rely on GV every single day for every single call I make. I can only assume either 1) there was some kind of network change that makes calling less reliable or 2) somehow my GV is stuck using VOIP instead of calling through my carrier. Anyhow anyone else getting this? I'm about to uninstall hangouts but I have a lot of SMS in there that I need to backup. I guess I will probably end up going back to a titanium backup and see if that works.
