    I don't really see what there is to misunderstand about google voice. It works like a calling card would. Obviously that's not considered a mobile to mobile minutes. If you use something without understand how it works then thats your fault, not the carriers.

    Sorry for the stupid question but I am new to cell phones. What is the point of using GV if it doesn't save me minutes?

    Gives you transcribed messages, online voicemail, single number to ring multiple phones, cheap international rates, call blocking, customized voicemail messages by number or group.

    I have google voice using my own number for now. Maybe that will change if the service improves.

    Ah yes, another uneducated GV user talking out of his a**.

    There's nothing wrong with not agreeing with, or personally wanting GV features yourself, but to say there are no benefits other than international calling (which is awesome, but is like 10th on my list of amazing GV features) but don't turn off new users who are legitimately interested in this amazing service just because you don't know anything about it.

    Also, to the previous posters, there have been a million posts on what GV does and it's benefits at this point, so just do a search and you'll find out, and the another poster, no.. GV does not work just like a calling card. Yes, it doesn't use you mobile to mobile minutes (only if you don't do the friends and family hack) but other than that, nothing about it is like a calling card.

    I agree, google voice is the best and most used app on my phone. But you need to do your homework on how to make it work with out using minutes. It is not Verizon's fault you went over your minutes. Pay your overage and chalk it up to a lesson learned the hard way.

    Best advantage for my purposes on GV is the ability to have one number ring multiple devices.

    I love google voice just for the voicemail. Set your default voicemail to GV and you can get free visual voicemail using the app in the market store. It will also send you transcripts of the message (doesnt work so great ATM).

    *please note that when someone leaves you a message it uses your plan's minutes.
