    FYI, Guys setting call forwarding up. I believe that Sprint charges you some fee if it goes anywhere but voicemail. Be wary.

    if you have a grand central account all you have to do is convert it to google voice. if not i think you're out of luck for the time being. remember gmail? seemed like forever before i could snatch up an account!

    i've got a few ideas for skinning but *very* freakin little free time lately.

    here's a couple things i did while screwing around:

    It's way better. On your desktop, you dial a number (or select one of your contacts). Your landline and/or cell phone rings (depending on how you configure). When you pick up the ringing phone, Google Voice connects your call and dials the other side of the conversation.

    And it transcribes your voicemails.

    (oh, and it's free)

    Wow. Nice adjustment. Now we need an ***** proof way to do this posted on your site.

    For those who don't know... Phwelo created skins for the Palm Centro by modifying files/pic rather than using a skinner. First person I ever saw to do it. Easy but awesome idea. He then wrote a program on centro to install/uninstall it.. Free of charge. Always fulfilling request and responding to peoples question. Good guy.

    Enough of the marketing (my wife still brags her centro is pretty than her friends)...

    haha that's awesome. i'm looking into how ipk's are created. i'm not sure how they work but i'm guessing i'll be able to package skins up like that. if not i'll have to make a script, which for copying files around should be too tough. i'm kind of waiting until the internals folks come up with a way to run stuff from the actual phone before i start to really get into making stuff. there is probably going to be a lot more possible on the pre than on the centro

    The real killer use of GV is to use it as your home phone number. GV works with Gizmo5 which is like Skype but works through SIP. All you need is a Linksys PAP2 or similar router and you have regular home service. It is exactly the same thing you would be getting from Vonage or Comcast's phone service. The only difference is to make an outbound call you need to originate it from a computer or pda which will then ring to your phone and when you pick up it dials your contact. If people realized this feature it would put the phone companies out of business as soon as Google opens up GV to the masses.

    Now, bring on the App! I know Blackberry/Google are on tap and iPhone is on the way. Anyone heard about a Pre app?

    FYI, for those interested, I signed up about 6 weeks ago...

    I just got my invite to GV! So my question is this.when someone texts in GV assigns a 406 #. Does this work when people text in from international #'s? That would same me boatloads of money! how does GV help when someone is overseas? I travel to Peru every month. I would also like to start on a GV app, but I'm still not sure how GV works. Any help?

    So i just got my invite today! very excited! Wondering how everyone likes it and uses it?

    I've had the same Mobile number for about 12 years now and i'm not ready to change.

    Can't wait for an app or for the Pre to integrate VG into webOS!

    GV would actually very cool for people that travel internationally and have sprint or verizon.

    I chose a number different from my cell but started giving that out instead of my real number so I can tell who is calling (Even without caller ID) and record I love using GV!
    Palm History: Palm III>IIIc>CLIÉ NR70v>CLIÉ TG50>Tungsten C>Treo 650>Treo 700p>Centro>Pre!! 6/5/09

    Sorry Timmy, SERO does not work with the Pre.
