I found an invite to google voice in my inbox over the weekend. Anyone using it or have any feedback? Did you select a google number or just use the number you already have? I’d like all the features that come along with getting a google number, but I don’t think I’ll convince my family members to use it as everyone has Verizon cell phones so talking to each other is always free.

I have an account which I am going to use to set up a voice mail for guests to call with information about whether we are using the rain plan or not on our wedding day. When you sign up you get to pick which area code you want, and then it offers you several phone numbers in that area to choose from. You can either talk through your computer or you can set that number up to ring to a different phone line. I can see it being good for someone who wants to have a business line that will ring to their cell phone, so they can keep their business and personal numbers seperate, but still use the same physical phone.
I don’t know how well it would work if you wanted to use it to replace your cell phone. The main detrement I see is that you can’t seem to have a phone which works exclusively on google voice, you either have to use your computer to make all your calls, or have a main phone number to tie the google number to. (So when someone calls my google number, Google “calls” my cell number, and then patches the caller through.)

@fifty- I’ve heard about wave and glad I’m not the only one who has no idea what I would do with it. That does not mean I didn’t consider trading my google voice invite for a wave invite though. Maybe those wave people were so willing to trade because they had no idea either!

Wow! Thanks for posting! Google Wave looks amazing. I have used so many things like that but they have so many bugs and flaws. And it’s going to be open source! Very cool.

I LOVE Google Voice!! I use it for my business line :D. The calls are forwarded to my email and a transcript of the voicemail is sent to my inbox. The only problem is the transcripts are crazy lol!! They are transcribed by the computer so names are rarely correct. I love the fact that I can also listen to the voice mail on my computer. I have nothing but great things to say about it. And a colleague uses something similar and pays 50.00 per month for it!! I believe it says you have reached the google voice of so and so but none of my clients have a problem with that.
