    what do you use it for? you don't seem to like the idea of Visual Voice Mail, which is what I use it for. I know it does other things but I've never experimented. My friend said something about having an extra number or something?

    Are there any negatives to using Google Voice?

    I love GV. It's free and it's getting better and better. When I first began using it in April when I got my Dinc, the text of the VM was so inaccurate about 60% of the time that you had to use it to listen to the VM rather than read it. I'd say it's close to about 20% of the time that I am forced to listen rather than just read it. I've even signed my son up with a GV account for his Chocolate Touch.

    it always comes out as useless gibbersih that only vaguely resembles your voicemail

    Is Verizon's paid VVM (or iPhones' for that matter) any more accurate? I havent had GV properly transcribe a message since I became a member.

    I don't understand seeing as their voice-to-text feature on android is impeccable (99% of the time).

    probably because you purposefully enunciate properly when you use voice-to-text while people leaving you a voice mail don't know they're going to be transcribed by GV.
