    Just out of curiosity. And where do you live?

    Just wondering if anyone got something at least geographically close to them.
    Not I.

    GV 323: Los Angeles.
    Me: 216: Cleveland.

    Google voice (215)
    Verizon (215)

    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania suburb (15 miles west). 215 was THE area code for Philadelphia until perhaps three decades ago when it became necessary to add other areas codes due to saturation. Now it also includes (267), and includes the near Northern and Eastern suburbs.

    The Western/Southwestern and far Northern suburbs likewise were (610), but now also include (484).

    Me 619 San Diego CA
    GV 619 San Diego CA

    Got it in the beginning when I could choose the area code, there were 3 for the area, now 5, and from a large selection of prefixes with last 4 combinations, to make it easier to remember.

    Likewise. I chose (215) on Google Voice to match my main number's area code. Even more poignant I got my Verizon numbers (4 lines total, ending in 000, 100, 200, & 300), in 1993. I've kept all but the 300 number these last 23 years.

    I did the same when I had Cingular, now ATT, but changed when I went to Verizon and got rid of the reason to have consecutive numbers, may she RIP... ;)

    I don't think 216 was available at the time for me.
    Now there are some 216's available, I see.
    GOOG charges $10 to change. Meh, maybe someday.

    Can't you get a GV# for free with each Gmail account?
