Say Goodbye to Google Voice

Count me as not pleased, unless I can keep my Google Number.
If the integration goes smooth, then I'm fine.

Too many come and go
I just use my real phone number
sock monkeys at www.OurSockMonkey.com and of course everything at www.FilthyRichFashions.com

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why we call it the present!

I hope they don't completely eliminate it and don't make it where can't use an android app to make calls using it.  Though I seldom make calls using it, I do give out the number quite a bit.   I really like, not only the privacy, but also that it will ring both the house and my cell at the same time.

Gosh, I've had Google Voice since before it became Google Voice.
Around 2004?
Yep..I think it was about that long.
Further research has shown that our numbers will still be available and be used in conjunction with Google + (which I don't use but if it's tied to it....ok)

I love the service.
It's my contact for everything.
Family and friends have my cellphone number (no land line for close to 7 or 8 years and it's heaven) which they call/text but everything else goes to my Google Number which forwards to my cell phone. 
When a call comes thru on my Google number I have a choice of answering or letting it go to voicemail.
Depending on what I have going on or if I'm in the middle of "life" it's a great asset to me.
When a call comes thru and I don't/can't get to my phone, I get a text with the transcript of the voicemail along with access to the voicemail.

If need be and Google Voice transforms to a service that won't work for me, I'll just port that number over to Magic Jack.
That's been on my list of considerations for a year or so anyway.
Our member, Suze loves Magic Jack and her thumbs up with the service has made me think about this option for a quite sometime.
