    not sure what you mean here? GV basically calls you back on your network so you are still using your network and your minutes

    GV is not a VoIP service, it uses your network and your minutes.

    My GV # is on my aList so when it calls me back I'm not using minutes. I only use this means to call landlines cause with AT&T we have mobile to any mobile.

    When it calls be back and I'm connected to call the voice call is on AT&T network?

    Unless your phone can connect to one of the other carriers (doubtful), then yes. It's not like GV moves your phone over to TMobile for its call...

    Reason I ask is because quality of call although good enough for voice doesn't seem as good quality as making call direct. I thought maybe it's possible on a different frequency or something.

    It definitely is running through some sort of VoIP network at some segment of the call. The increased latency is very noticeable.
