At last I received my invitation for Google Voice this morning, and am taking it for a spin as I write this. So far it’s pretty awesome. Registering my iPhone and my work phone was easy. Transcribing voicemails into text works amazingly well. Sending and receiving SMS from the browser is very nice and fast. The one thing I was hoping Google would have ready for me is number porting. As it stands I was unable to port my existing number to Google; instead having to choose from a pool of area codes and numbers (None of which were New York numbers, damn I was hoping for a 212 !).
