Actually it was your earlier incomplete sentence that triggered my curiosity.

Another way I plan on using this is to give it out as my cell #, then use my throw away tracfones I get for free with it.
I understand what happened.

Sorry for the ample and confusing usage of prepositional phrases and pronouns!

You get a phone number from Google Voice. You can then set that phone number to ring multiple phones -- like your home phone and cell phone. Whichever phone you pick up gets the call. If you don't pick up the call, it goes to voice mail.
You can basically do this with Vonage...but ended up being a pain. We went on vacation and I set our home phone to ring both my husband's and my cell phone. So one day I wanted to call my son at home so I called home. But, it rang DH's cell phone so we answered. Or he was calling home and I answered. This ringing all phones things is probably fine for a person who lives alone but not for where more than one person is there and that person may want to call another person in the family who is at a particular location.

Google Voice rolls out a new message system

Quote:
After directing your Google Voice account to pick up voice mails, rather than relying on your cellphone provider, Google will transcribe your messages and send an e-mail notification after new messages are recorded.

Previously this feature was only available by signing up for a new Google Voice phone number.

"There's always going to be a subset of people who don't want to change their phone number," says Google senior product manager Vincent Paquet.

I did go to the google voice site and request an invite - took a day or two, but got it and have signed up - haven't really used it yet, but did try out the "read your voice message on the web feature". Don't know what program they use (like Dragon Naturally Speaking maybe?), but it did fairly well even with my mushmouth.

Understand that iphone doesn't play well with it but some other smartphones really make good use of Google Voice.
