Take a long time to make call

    I am using GV by Evan Charlton(amazing app). But I found that it
is really slow to make a call when unchecking "route all the calls
through GV" and choose "dial out" instead of "call back". I check the
source code and found that he use following code to make a call.

        Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_CALL);

The problem is, when you use above and the phone number is really long
( google voice number, 2, actually phone number), it took a long time
to make the call (40 seconds until it connects).
Funny thing is that, if I choose "route all the calls through GV",
then it connects reall fast (10 seconds).

Can any one tell me is there another way to make the call efficiently?
Thank you.

 I have to check out this app :-) ...

If you have the source code try to find out how long it actual takes
from switching from ringing to connected. I could imagine that the
phone does the processing in time but the backend processing might be
pretty slow for the case you described.

Any ideas how many messages are send between the phone and the backend
to support GV?

Hello all,
I am trying to test my activities. I have been using

The reason I am asking is because I have the following in my onCreate
in the activity:
