    No more invites. Open for everyone! I've been using it over a year and love it.

    That's funny. I just barely got my invite! LOL!

    Does it work with Bluetooth? I've been using YouMail and love it but I can't get it to consistently play back messages through my bluetooth headset.

    Also, how well does the transcription feature work? I've been impressed with the one in YouMail but they charge a fee for it.

    Google voice is great.. But the Transcription feature sucks.. I hope they update it soon.

    Verizon still hasn't fixed the problem with my Google Voice number. Apparently, they aren't redirecting it properly. It sort of pisses me off. The call goes through if I call from our home phone, so its definitely a Verizon problem.

    Mine works fine.. If i dont want someone to know my cell number i call them with the google voice number and it shows up.

    Edit: Whoever im calling that i want to see my google voice number and not my actual cell number has to be on my contact list or it will just show my main number for some reason.

    It does use your minutes i do believe. It just will save you alot of money on international or long distance calls. I just use it for the fact of having 2 numbers.

    It does use your airtime, anytime you make a call to any number (other than customer service or *228 calls) it will use airtime.

    +1, transcription gets things wrong all the time...basic stuff, too. Just depends on how slowly the person leaving the message talks.

    I stand corrected, still seems like kind of a pain in the ass though.

    Any ideas as to why gv force closes on me during setup when it asks for permission to access my gmail stuff? Tried uninstall and reinstall, along with a soft reboot.

    I believe that is correct. GV only does SMS.
