    Picked up my Droid this afternoon. :icon_ banana: Great phone and I'm having a blast checking out the apps thru the marketplace.

    One question tho, how does someone get a Google Voice number??

    :welcome: to Droid Forums!

    Google Voice is by invitation only. You either have to be invited by someone who has it or request an invitation from Google here

    I think because of the Nexus One, (I think its preinstalled) Google has been rolling out invites a lot faster, I've heard weeks. I upgraded my Google Account awhile back, to have more space for Picasa/Gmail and was invited to Google Voice shortly after...

    Welcome! I'm sure you'll love this phone. And as Sam said, just search for invites and you can generally find some; that's how I got mine. Good luck! :motdroidhoriz:
