A Google Voice Account Is Worth What??

Updated: May 13, 2009

But it is often said among eBayers, "The winner of an auction is the one who pays more than anyone else thinks a thing is worth for something the seller didn't think was worth keeping." You can request a specific phone number from a carrier when you order service, and if it's available you will get it at no additional charge. What are these Google Voice fanatics buying?

"One phone number for all your phones, for life" is the Google Voice marketing mantra. You get a phone number that forwards to all of your phone numbers: business, home, office, the motel you're staying at temporarily, etc. From a Web interface you control what happens to incoming calls depending on who's calling and when they call. You can do tricks like text messaging and voicemail-to-text transcription. 

For business, Google Voice greatly simplifies the complexity of anytime, anywhere communication with customers, suppliers, and coworkers. The IT department can manage everyone's phones and individuals can manage their own. Google Voice is great for telecommuters, traveling sales reps, globe-trotting executives, and the IT guy who's running from facility to facility. And it's free!
