My official review, to a previous post! This pretty much describes the entire video!
We all love Google Voice, right? Well, I do, and if you head over here you will see that you can now turn your Google Voice number into a land line. This isn't the same thing as forwarding your GV number to another phone, which may still be the best way to go for privacy. You do have more control over your GV number than you would on a cell plan, like being able to block numbers with 2 clicks. We recently eliminated our landline and added another cell phone to our AT&T family network and transferred the number over. Well that being said, we still receive those annoying telemarketers, and there is no way to block their numbers without playing the $5 a month smart limits. Using my Android phone GV has a lot of power( I know I mentioned Android on an Apple blog!). But this is true, I have my calls forwarded to my cell number and whenever I make a call it will call with GV. Plus I get the free SMS support.
But this company will have a phone that is completely dedicated to your GV number. They tell us on that page that you do not need a computer, and this may be the case for their service but you still need a computer or some way to the internet to set up and manage your GV. I am also getting the feeling that it would be like a cell phone since they say that you can "Share your thoughts, pics, and videos" But just like GV offers now, free unlimited calling to anywhere in the US and Canada.
For an extra $5, however, I do not have the problem to simply using my cell phone as my main way of contact and just forwarding the number to my phone and use the built-in calling features for outgoing calls.
That's my opinion, let me know what you think below in the comments!
The application that I used is called "Telephone" and it's free and available here on the Mac App Store
