Google Voice is currently available by invite only. Get an Invite.

I knew this service because Apple rejected the Google Voice app's submission to iTune App Store. Later, GV Mobile was released to Cydia. Yesterday, I realized that I can request an invitation. I did it and got an email today ...

Quickly, I setup the account and test - things are working as listed below! Now, I have a new phone number.

One number for all your calls and SMS

* Call screening - Announce and screen callers
* Listen in - Listen before taking a call
* Block calls - Keep unwanted callers at bay
* SMS - Send, receive, and store SMS
* Place calls - Call US numbers for free
* Taking calls - Answer on any of your phones
* Phone routing - Phones ring based on who calls
* Forwarding phones - Add phones and decide which ring


Voicemail as easy as email, with transcripts

* Voicemail transcripts - Read what your voicemail says
* Listen to voicemail - Check online or from your phone
* Notifications - Receive voicemails via email or SMS
* Personalize greeting - Vary greetings by caller
* Share voicemail - Forward or download voicemails


More cool things you can do with Google Voice

* Conference calling - Join people into a single call
* Call record - Record calls and store them online
* Call switch - Switch phones during a call
* Mobile site - View your inbox from your mobile
* GOOG-411 - Check directory assistance
* Manage groups - Set preferences by group

I don't have a home phone right now. My work home has an extension which does not support yet. What can I do with it? :-p

Google Voice has a Dialer App for Android and BlackBerry. As for iPhone, only jailbreaked phone can use GV Mobile.
