    I purchased a Google Voice invite on ebay for $0.99. It worked, got the email, set up my account and chose my phone #.
    Thank you

    What's the catch? How does Google profit from this?

    Very perceptive; you know nothing like this is ever really free. Some of what I've read says that things like transcribed voicemails can be culled for keywords so they can target ads to you better in some of their other services.

    Google's ad targeting is extremely aggressive and google voice is an extension of their offerings. You sacrifice your privacy for features so they can deliver targeted ads to you based on your voicemail messages, for instance.

    I dropped 10$ in my google voice account and use gDial to contact friends abroad, at 2cents a minute it's a bargain!
    Also, I set my google # to ring my office during the day and my cellphone at all other times.
    If any any time I have to give up my cellphone service, I'll likely port my number into google so that I don't ever lose it.

    What is this pick 3 or 5 that I keep hearing about? I called Sprint Customer service and asked them about it and they basically told me that it doesn't exist on any of their plans?

    Contact retentions. An active number is floating around the forum.

    Did those of you that currently have it (Pre owners) get it hooked up get it early and what's a GrandCentral user exactly??
    I was with GrandCentral. Google bought them out a while ago. (I think June or July of 2007). Grand Central seemed to progress faster but as of late google seems to be more focused on the service. It is a great service and better yet it's free! Good luck! hope you get an account soon..

    I have an old grandcentral number that I converted to google voice in May. Am I able to use WIFI to make calls?

    Lets say I am at an airport abroad and would like to call home or another country. Can I use the Pre's WiFi to make calls?

    That is cool. How does that work? Will this still work with the new Sprint Any Mobile Anytime?

    So, you'll port your Sprint number to Google Voice? That would interest me. Then I wouldn't have to tell everyone that has my cell number that it has been changed.

    Pick 3/5 is a list of numbers you can call for free.

    I have Vonage which already gives me the ability to have multiple virtual phone numbers (including 1-800 and international numbers) ring on the same line. It also allows me to have calls from any of these numbers ring on any number of other phones in addition to the main line. It includes unlimited international calls to most countries (except mobile phones in most cases) and transcribes voicemails to text.

    I am not seeing the need for GV.

    You pay for Vonage.
    You don't pay for Google Voice.

    Also, can they text you at your Vonage number? If so, how do you reply?

    If you are walking around with just a cell phone, can you place phone calls FROM your Vonage number?

    You do pay if you call internationally I think.

    No, you can't text (not something I do much though). Its possible to call from a cell phone via your vonage number but its a bit clumsy. I wouldn't bother unless I wanted to make a very long international call.

    I've tried to apply 2 times now and unless the email confirmation is ending up in my junk mail they still haven't gotten back to me.

    Any other ways of getting hooked up?
