    Can anyone confirm that using the a-list you can get both free incoming calls as well as outgoing calls on ATT? I am of course referring to using google voice for outgoing calls, and setting the caller id as "GV number" for incoming calls so everyone falls within the a-list = calls without using your minutes.

    I can confirm that it is working for me.

    That is good news. I hope this loophole lasts for a while before they fix it!

    i wouldnt know. i pay for 450/month minutes and i'm not eligible for a-list. and since i spend most of my time at home, i just pay yearly for a cheap skype number. thats not as expensive as upgrading to 900/month to meet the requirement for the a-list. saves me about $20/month.

    so, i would recomment still using the google voice account, but downgrading to 450/month, and answering all your calls at home with a cheap voip service like skype or magicjack. you can save about $20/month, and still get unlimited calling; just not through your cell.

    Outgoing works, incoming however, AT&T can see the real Caller ID even if you Google Voice # is shown to you

    This is kind of what I was wondering. Have you tested this?
