When my Project Fi Nexus 6 is connected to Wi-fi only, I can receive calls (to my google voice number) just fine... but I can't place them with the Android dialer (when I try, the Android dialer gives me a little alert saying "I won't place any calls until you connect to the cellular network" in effect). Happily, I just discovered I can place calls with the Google Hangouts dialer.
My question is: why can't I place calls with the Android dialer when I'm wi-fi only? Will a call placed via Hangouts dialer hand off to the cell network if/when I reconnect to it?
[EDIT: and here's the solution...
Uninstall the google voice app (key step), restart the phone, and reconfigure the call assistant feature of the dialer (Dialer > Settings > Calls > Calling accounts > Call assistant) and select "Wi-Fi calls with Google" and then Dailer > Settings > Calls > Calling accounts > Configure and turn on the "Wi-Fi Calling" toggle.]
On the plus side, they made it easy to get to support-over-chat.
