    I selected a number that's not long distance for my family 1000 miles away. That's about all I use it for, but you can set that up to ring your Droid AND your home phone.

    Basically, I just use it for the voicemail though...

    What is the advantages to using it as voicemail instead of the Verizon voicemail?

    Verizon visual voicemail costs a few bucks/month. Google is free.

    Verizon charges for texts. Google is free.

    Last I heard, google's voicemail software was better.

    Google has more features too, I think.

    You can get notifications, read, and listen to your voicemail on the Droid with the Google Voice app.

    I know someone with a GV account, but they don't know how to get an invite for anyone. Does anyone know how the invites get passed out?
