Google Voice-Free LD and messaging

After trying google voice for 3 months, I think it is a great way to save on long distance costs- free calls in the US and cheap international. Only downside is that we log into the google voice account to make the call- but worth the savings for the minute it takes.

We travel each weekend to our cabin, and will spend quite a bit of time there once DH retires in spring. Google voice follows us so to speak to each location, and emails us missed calls and/or messages. Provided family with the google voice number- they do not need to worry about our schedule.

I'm too cheap for an Iphone, and even our cell is noncontract minutes meant for emergencies.

Google voice is worth a look!

Nothing is free!

I am skeptical about google from a privacy angle.

You never know how that data might be used.

Different situation... but it makes the point.

Besides that, paygo phones are dirt cheap and more convenient.
