Will outgoing calls made via Google Voice be charged as long distance on my phone bill, since they are routed through a long distance number?

With all respect, doesn't the answer depend on what you mean by "made via Google Voice?" If you make an outgoing call by typing it into the Google Voice webpage and ringing back your phone, as far as your carrier (and the recipient's too) is concerned, the call is an incoming call, so there are no long distance charges.

Of course, if you are on a cell phone that is charged for minutes of use, you will be charged regardless.

  1. If you don't have free long distance calling, then yes, these calls will be considered long distance by your carrier. Most cell phone users have free long distance though.
