    I use it solely for the VM. I get a transcribed email and a recording...

    I use it for text messages. That way it doesn't go against my 250 free limit. At least that's the way I've used it in the past, if something has changed I'm unaware of it. All I know is that when I had my Storm using Google Voice it worked like a charm.

    I use it for the voicemail also. Great feature.

    I also have a firefox extension for google voice which allows you to click any phone number on a web page and it will automatically call the number from your droid.

    Please read all the other Google Voice threads. This question is very frequently asked and answered. It's really a matter of looking at the features and seeing if any are worthwhile for you. Not everyone uses it for the same reasons.

    If you're going to ask why you should choose anything then you at least need to post what you're looking for or expecting from a given solution.

    I'd start by reading here:
    Google Voice Help

    And then when you are done reading that.. come back with more questions. Google's Online Help is actual quite useful when it comes to answering simple feature questions.

    Visual Voicemail here. It's free and works pretty good.
