I *love* using GV for multiple reasons, and while I love doing SMS over it, it's not as complete as native VZ messaging; you can't send texts to multiple people at once, you can't use it for pics/vids, and there is no email -> SMS gateway available for it (eg/ie, someone can't send an email to <gvnumber>@voice.google.com and have it come through as a text message like sending email to <vznnumber>@vtext.com does). For this reason I ended up getting the 500 msgs + unl. m2m plan; I have pages that I have to receive for work that I'm unable to get through GV.
I use GV for the visual voicemail aspect. Works great. If anyone else needs an invite, let me know. I've never invited anyone so I assume I have some. Someone will have to tell me where it is though, I don't see an invite section.
I read somewhere that you cant invite people. But if someone wants an account, go to google.com/voice and click on the request an invite link near the bottom of the page. I received an invite the next day.
