    You'll use your minutes to make calls with the way google voice is setup (unless you have pick 5 or something similar).

    Personally, I use it as my voicemail. It works the same as visual voicemail but also emails you a copy of the voicemail AND texts you a transcript (sometimes horribly inaccurate and sometimes great) of what was said in the voicemail.

    Just curious, why would you want email and sms transcripts if the app also notifies you with a transcript?

    If I'm at work, I may not be able to take the call and use the text notification (i keep mobile internet off most of the time). If I'm traveling for work to somewhere that doesn't get service, I use the email notification from my laptop.

    I got a Google Voice activation email today...was pretty happy. Thought Canada was finally getting GV...clicked on the link and got this message:

    Why was I sent a GV invite if I can't use it!!! Isn't that pointless -_-;;;

    They must have sent a bunch of invites yesterday. I got one too, although you don't need one to have google voice. I have had it for a month and never had an invite...:D
