    No problem, glad to help. Just remember if you do decide to go this route and don't have a Google Voice invite yet, you do need to request one and wait to get one

    I have. I've gone to that site and requested one. Did it Friday. So perhaps by the end of this week. My Android arrives Friday. The co-incidence would be great. Coming from an iphone, this will be a fascinating experience. sherry

    That's great news. I would say a week might be pushing it though, right now as far as I know two weeks seems to be the shortest time to get an number. I could be wrong though, and either way, you need your verizon number set up anyways, so you can get used to the phone and just switch over to google voice when you get the number and set it up, enjoy!

    Using your own current number, you are limited to these things:

    • Google voicemail: voicemail like email
    • Voicemail transcription: read what your voicemail says
    • Custom greetings: vary voicemail greetings by caller
    • International calling: low cost calls to the world
    • Notifications: read voicemail messages via email or SMS
    • Share voicemails: forward, embed, or download voicemails

    and if you use your actual google voice number with your phone you get all the above as well as:


    • One number: a single phone number that rings all your phones
    • Free SMS: send, receive & store text messages online
    • Block calls: send unwanted callers straight to voicemail
    • Record calls: record phone calls and store them online
    • Conference calls: join several people into a single call
    • Screen callers: hear who is calling before you pick up


    Since I was getting a new phone and like to get a new number every few years to clear out old contacts I don't want to bother me anymore, I jumped at the chance to go full google voice. The way you can completely integrate it on Android 2.0 on the droid makes it insanely easy.
    Question about this google voice system:

    Can you select who sees ya mobile number or Google number? Is that something that can be done?

    Thanks to who gave me the invite.
    Works reasonably well. People do mumble and talk fast so no complaints about mistakes.
    But............ if the message is more than a couple of lines it comes up as multiple posts- Not a big deal, but my last message was long and after 2-3 posts it dropped (ended). I don't know if there's a length limit or if there was some other prob.

    If you connect the call using google voice, it will always show your google voice number as your caller ID. You have to set it up from the google voice app to do that in your phone though

    Help!

    I'm having a major problem. Since the google voice to text is far from perfect (people who leave voicemails may speak quickly and not clearly) there are times I would like to check the actual voice mail to get missed information. I can't seem to access the actual voicemail from the links with the text.
    And, when I go to check voicemail via the voicemail icon on the phone keypad (the one to the left that looks like a film cartridge) it conect to my # and my message. If I can't fix this, as much as I like the voice to text, I'll have to delete it.
    Can anyone help?

    Im not getting the texts or emails when i get a voicemail. i tested it and when someone called the phone it said to press pound and then my number, after that a message was left but I got no notification. Anyone know how to fix this? I dont want it asking people to input my number when they leave a message either.

    Are you using the Google Voice Dialer free app? You can play it through there on your phone.
