Google Voice now works with your own phone number
Google Voice now works with your own phone number and not just the one the application provides. Unfortunately, this comes at a price, since the program does not feature all available extra features, although Google has not specified what´s missing.

If you´re wondering what Google Voice is, read on. In a nutshell, the telecommunication service provides you with a single US phone number to connect all of your existing ones, plus they can be independently configured (i.e. using different settings), say forward all incoming calls from an annoying neighbour directly to your voice mail. When this happens, you can either to listen to the voice message from your cell phone or computer, or read thanks to a special program that will convert it to plain text.

At this time, Google Voice is available by invites only. The company says the service will become available to everyone soon, although the has failed to mention specific date...

If you really cared about the service you'd already have it, and this is great news to people like me who do have it. Now, instead of taking advantage of the service with the number I made up, I can use my existing number as well. Great news for me. Stop bitching about things when you clearly have no clue what you're even talking about.

not sure if you read this article, especially the link to the google press release, but this is good news for everyone. Google Voice is sick, too bad for those smartphone users that are blocked from using it.
