There are three (3) types of call settings you can use when calling via the G3 mobile app:
This default setting is determined by the G3 service or plan you are subscribed in. The G3 app dials your outgoing call and routes it through the G3 network.
Using VoIP WiFi lets you call without using your regular data plan. When choosing VoIP WiFi, ensure that your mobile is actually connected to a WiFi network, otherwise it will count towards you data plan.
To call using VoIP WiFi:
Using VoIP Data will count towards your regular data plan. You may want to disable 3G VoIP Data calls when traveling to avoid expensive data roaming charges.
To call using VoIP Data:
Pause codes are automated and carrier-specific codes that are used to instruct the receiving system to pause before entering the numbers that follow them in a dialing sequence. Most common pause codes are "p", "," (comma) and ";" (semicolon).
The majority of Android phones use "," (comma) to pause when dialing, but a few Androids use "p" (small p). If the G3 app should fail to dial any number, try changing the default Pause Code setting on the application. You may need to update the automated pause code to one that is specific or appropriate for your phone model.
If you have a G3 SmartCard, you may enter the PIN found at the back of the card. This will let you use whatever minutes you have on the card instead of your regular G3 account (if you have one).
By default, it is the first 7 digits of your mobile phone number including Country Code. The access number is based on your Location ID. If you change your Location ID and select 'Update Profile,' the access number will also change according to your new Location ID.
When you Travel
Change your Location ID whenever you travel outside your city or state to ensure that the access number(s) you will be using is local to your area.
For example, if you are traveling to Toronto, you can change your location ID to '1416567':
1416 - Country code + Toronto area code
567 - first three digits of your mobile number (or any 3-digit numbers will do)
Click on 'Update Profile' to edit your Location ID. After entering your new Location ID, click on 'Update Profile' again to retrieve your new local access numbers.
