FCC Investigates Apple’s Rejection of Google Voice Application

FCC Letter It seems the FCC has decided to get involved with the rejection of the Google Voice application by Apple. If you remember, after they rejected the official Google Voice application, they also removed all thrid party Google Voice applications from the App Store (one of which was then released in the jailbreak community). In letter from the FCC, “the FCC asked why Apple rejected the Google Voice application for the iPhone and removed related applications from its App Store. The letter also seeks information on how AT&T, the exclusive U.S. iPhone carrier, was consulted in the decision, if at all.” Below is are the full letters from the FCC to Apple, FCC to Google and FCC to AT&T.

Google Voice App Denied From App Store, Now In Cydia

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

GV MobileApple has recently started blocking applications from the App Store that allow your iPhone to use your Google Voice account with calls, text messaging, and voicemail.

Dev-Team Gets Google Voice (and gives out the number!)

Dev-Team It seems the Dev-Team has some guts! They just posted on Twitter that they have a new Google Voice number… the post includes the number itself. So, if you would like to reach the Dev-Team, feel free to call (347) Dev-Team which equals (347) 338-8326. I’m not sure who you will get (maybe it is forwarding to all the Dev-Team members) or if they will even answer but, they said to feel free to leave a message. I have a feeling they might start to get inundated with calls… we will see if they regret the decision! [Read more…]
