    I am in the process of installing now, and will report back what I find.

    Yes, you get to pick your own number. I have an account, so I guess I will have to try out this app.

    I wonder if you can have texts only go to this app and not to your phones SMS folder when they are sent to your GV number? Anyone know?

    As far as I know, NOBODY has invites to send except Google themselves. It's not like with Gmail where you had 50 invites to send when it first came out.

    You select which mobile phone you want the SMS to go to, so if you have it not forward to a phone at all that should give you the desired result.

    How does it do it then? The caller ID on the other end shows your GV number.

    This really is an amazing service. I only just received my invite yesterday, so I am still learning what all it can do.

    When you going through the initial setup, it asks you for your area code or zip code to look up phone numbers available to you. The prefixes it gave me weren't really in my immediate locale, but it still has my area code.

    The way the app works is you dial the outgoing number from within the app, and then it uses your phone's radio to dial into Google, which routes it to whatever phone number you are calling. When you use this app, the caller ID on the receiver's end shows up as your Google number.

    The app also shows your "inbox," which is where it stores voicemails and txt messages that are sent to you.

    Seems to be a pretty smooth app so far.

    Now I see where to do that. You have to uncheck the "send SMS to this phone" box. Thanks!

    You can actually take advantage of this and add the google access number as one of your FAVS and guess what? All your outgoing calls will be considered free and not count against your minutes. That is of course dialing through the google app. There I just saved you a ton of minutes

    Can anyone that has been invited to Google Voice confirm how long you have been waiting. I sent a request a couple of months ago, just wondering how long I should expect to wait.

    I originally signed up about 6 months ago, then signed up again about a week ago (figured it couldn't hurt). I got my invitation yesterday.

    So, to really benefit, you have to add the access number (for outgoing) AND your actual GV number (for incoming) to your Favorites plan?

    I signed up 3 months ago and just got my invite last night.

    I still don't understand how it's free. This is kind of cheating the phone carriers.

    That's kind of a leap...

    In theory, if you add the GV number to your Favorites plan (if you have one), any numbers called from or received by your GV number will be free. Now, it isn't as easy as it sounds; the onus is on you to ensure all your contacts use your new number.

    Oh Ok. I just added it to my favorite on Verizon. Yeah I understand the thing about people calling you on the GV number. Now I gotta give my contacts my new GV number.

    I'm loving the feature on listening in on voicemails. This is the best thing for those annoying voicemails that people leave that say nothing.

    I put in a request for an invite about 1 or 2 weeks ago and got it yesterday. I'm still not sure how I feel about it...
