I’ve had a Google Voice number for a little over a year I think, now. My best use for it is it’s awesome Android integration, and really being able to use Google Voice’s voicemail instead of Verizon’s and the voicemail transcription just absolutely rocks.
I’m not entirely sure what this really means as far as breaking an existing contract with your current carrier and what-not, but I can definitely say this looks like this is going in the right direction.The screenshot above was taken directly from my google voice account settings, but when I clicked on the 2nd option, it quickly went to a “Google Error.”
I originally spotted this late on Engadget, and apparently this is still being tested and may not be available to everyone. I’m sure we’ll find out more in the next few days as it doesn’t seem like anybody has a real grasp on this yet, but this was definitely one of my favorite comments from there, with all this talk of 4g as of late:
So what do y’all think? If you have a Google Voice number, would you consider porting your own phone number?
