    Do you get a whole new number ?

    Does it get the voicemails that are new that were there before you got google voice ?

    What is the difference between google voice and Verizons Visual voicemail ?

    Anything else i should know before i jump in ?

    .........um , does anyone have a google voice invite?Ebay seems to be my only option , been waiting for a while from google and no one ever answers on here :(

    Have you read this?

    Google Voice

    This forum is for discussing the Motorola Droid. The info you're seeking is readily available at the Google Voice webpage.

    There's a thread floating around for Google Voice invites. Do a search.

    Who said anything about registering for another forum. I didn't know that Google's voice homepage, which contains all the nitty gritty details of its service, required a membership.

    I'll tell you what I'm sick of, people chiming in to complain about how others are being pricks when they tell people to search. I'll get into that a bit more later.

    I agree. Not only is it your friend, you should always do it before you create a new thread.

    Glad you got all that worked out.

    Fabolous has helped so many ... and then he's going to get yelled out by some noob (sonnysideup) who had done NOTHING to contribute to this community. Isn't passed your bedtime?! Dag! :(

    I am often confused by people asking the same question. The search box is really easy to use.

    Tough love maybe? Making someone "self sufficient", one user at a time? Maybe people are frustrated helping about the same issue(s) ad-infinitum, especially on a topic about a company whose sole existense is based around "search"?
