Google Voice Users: Tell a Friend (or Three)


If you didn't invited to sign up for Google Voice, you can now get on the list through a friend.

Google initial will allow three invites per user, although it plans to allow more in the future. The company used the same viral marketing strategy when it launched Gmail. Today, Gmail users today can invite up to 50 people to sign up

Google Voice


Google Voice is not quite ready to take over all of your voice and telephony needs, but it comes very close considering that it's almost entirely free.

A permanent follow-around phone number will ring any phone you want. Records incoming calls. Excellent online voice mail system

VoIP calls not always of high quality. Can't record outgoing calls. Conferencing can be messy. Message transcription far from perfect

Google Voice for Android


For this review, I tested build number 0.1.415.742.2130 on a T-Mobile G1 running Android 1.5. You can download the program from the Android Market.

Plenty of options for managing voice calls. Tighter integration and more features than the BlackBerry version

SMS messages are still separated from the phone's built-in messaging app

Google Voice for Android is the best way to use Google Voice on a cell phone.

Google Voice for BlackBerry


The app has two tabs: the Dialer tab shows your recent Google Voice call history, while the Inbox tab shows messages and recordings. You can quit the app to use the BlackBerry's native dialer. This is useful if certain contacts expect to see your...

Can dial, SMS, or record Google Voice calls from the handset. Plenty of options for managing voice calls

Doesn't use the BlackBerry's built-in dialer. Somewhat buggy

Google Voice for BlackBerry lets you make and receive calls and text messages through Google's new "number for life" service, although it's not as tightly integrated as the Android version.

Speak to me: G2 Phone with Google Voice


I have a couple of disclaimers to make here. The first is that I've never had a smartphone before. A few moderately bright phones, sure, but I've never had

Google Voice Review


If anyone knows me, they know I play with things for no reason, that is my nature. With that said, whenever I find something that I haven't used, haven't heard of, or could find any reason whatsoever to try, I will. That is the case with Google voice....

Google Voice vs. The World


The innovative Google Voice has kicked up a sandstorm of controvery, with Apple, AT&T, and even the FCC seemingly allied against the service. Find out why they're all wrong.

Whatever happens, one thing is clear: The previously innocuous Google Voice service has raised the hackles of industry behemoths like Apple and AT&T that guard their markets quite jealously. The violence of their reactions and the entrance of the FCC...
