    Has anyone purchased a GV invite on Ebay? They're going for about $1.99 on most of them. I really need an invite since I lowered my texting plan to afford my Droids' data plan. Are these invites that are for sale legitimate? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

    No idea. Maybe they're Devs or admins.

    Maybe they're just super awesome Chinese hackers.

    I believe everyone with a Google Voice account gets them after so long. I got invites after about a week.

    Yep.

    From GV website (on a computer is easiest):

    Settings
    Phones
    For the your mobile number - Edit
    Uncheck "Recieve SMS on this phone"

    Profit
