Google Voice MMS now works on almost 100 North American carriers (Verizon not included)

According to Alex Wiesen, a Googler who works on Voice, Google has been working with carriers and now can support MMS on "nearly 100 different North American carriers". This number includes big names in the U.S. and Canada, like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Bell Canada, Rogers, and Telus; but, Verizon is notably absent from the list, and testing has shown that MMS still doesn't work between Google Voice and Verizon. This is still a huge update for Google Voice and its users.
Frankly, we're surprised that there are 100 different carriers in North America. That number has to be including much smaller regional carriers that can be hard to keep track of.

They do suck. All they have is good service. Everything else is overpriced garbage.

I use voice most of the time, and have been waiting for this moment for a long.....time, baby. However, guess I'm going to be waiting a little longer, since Verizon is my carrier. Is no big deal to check gmail.

The voice through hangouts now is no where near the quality of Tmobile & now Sprint's! built in wifi calling app, Which is what I am using now. Strange though because before it moved into hangouts. I swear I remember it being usable when in poor cell signal.
