    Simply put, Google Voice is NOT a VoIP service to start with. It never did web call back on any iPhone nor Andriod phones.

    No it's not actually using web data for the call. Android automates the call back process so you can use google voice number just like your regular number. On iPhone, just go to google voice page on safari. You can initiate the call from there. This works with 3GS and iPhone 4.

    I think OP's referring to using GV to call a VoIP number instead.

    Speaking of which, what program do you use for gizmo VoIP?

    I think the OP is asking why doesn't google voice call your number? Instead, you have to call google voice.

    When you are on a computer: you login to google voice - you dial a number in the browser - google voice rings your phone

    When you are on the iPhone: you login to google voice - you dial a number in the browser - you are asked to dial google voice
