Google talking to carriers about Google Voice integration

i hate how carriers decide whats on our devices… apple, google, microsoft and other major manufacturers should get together and find a way to produce phones without subsidiaries and without carrier restrictions… the carriers are asking for it, although i am not sure if they know what they are getting into for the long run…

Slowly but surely we might be getting to that stage where the Wireless companies are nothing more than dumb pipes and we buy a phone and choose whichever service to use with the phone. LTE will definitely pave the way as all carriers will be supporting it and by default cell manufacturers will probably put in radios that can support all bands which would cut down on having to repurpose phones to support another network. I wouldn't mind buying the phone I want and just getting a nice plan to use it with.

It would be nice to have GV integration on all carriers. I ported my T-MO number to GV with No Issues. GV is nice except the lack of MMS but I can deal with that.
