    google voice

    ok so i just got my google voice invitation and set it up. it's interesting, but what do i need it for? i have my cell on me most of the time so i don't have a problem with people trying to call me. i suppose if i put a widget on my webpage for clients who wanna call me?

    can anyone tell me what this is good for besides just being something new.

    It's useful if you have multiple points of contact and would like to be able manage how people get a hold of you.

    Re: google voice

    Aside from the comprehensive list above, specifically what I like from the list are:

    1) The idea that your cell phone number doesn't need porting, etc, you switch phones you just re-route your google voice number.

    2) You can block calls straight up.

    3) The flexibility with voicemail, listen in and transcribe to text and email it.

    Re: google voice

    I think the feature that I enjoy most is how you can separate how you treat certain callers. So anyone from my side o the family rings the home phone and my cell phone. Anyone from her side of the family rings her cell and our home. You can also record specific voice mails for certain groups or individual people.

    Another big plus is that I don't have long distance on my home phone. I programed a shortcut into that phone that allows me to hit one button and I get free long distance by using my Google number.

    Re: google voice

    i guess one thing that i don't like is that when someone calls my google number, it'll call all my phones. the caller ID on those phones shows up as Unkown. so i have no idea if it's a spam call, or my google number being called.

    Second, i don't like the fact that if i'm not at home but my wife is, when my google number is called, she could answer it since both phones will ring.

    If I have the person who is calling in my contact list it tells me there name before I pick it up. There is a setting "enable screening" along with "caller presentation".

    Second, i don't like the fact that if i'm not at home but my wife is, when my google number is called, she could answer it since both phones will ring.

    This can be changed in the settings. If someone calls me that I don;t have in my contact list than it just rings my home phone.
