    Free Google Voice. Free USA phone number. But it is by "invitation" only.
    And is only available for residents of the USA for now.

    You have to go to Google and register to be invited. So go to this link and
    invite yourself.

    Code:
    https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googlevoiceinvite/
    It's another cool service offered by Google...and of course it's FREE.

    It offers most phone services, like voice mail, conference calling and my favorite...you can
    set it up to make up to 3 OTHER phones ring at the same time someone calls
    your Google number.

    That means I can set up my Google number so when someone calls it, my home
    phone, office phone and my cell phone all ring at the same time. So no matter
    where you are, you never miss a call.

    You can make different phones ring based on who the caller is.

    Go to this link and read about the features.
    Code:

    Great little post. The GV app for the iphone has been sitting there waiting for me to sign up so hopefully this will speed that process up. I'm stoked.

    Yeah this is all good, but I've been waiting for maybe a month now and still no replys from google on this. Best to have someone who has an acct to invite you I believe, just like when they had Gmails in the beginning...

    Some I have heard got accepted the next day, some a week. I've been waiting almost a month now...

    yes, i posted this a while back and i can highly recommend it. its just terrific! i also got a number for a local non-profit i am a member of.
    ps. i am a holdover from when it was originally called "grandcentral", so they just put the service in my google account.

    cant imagine how thrilled the original owners were when they found out google wanted to buy them out! i wonder how much it was sold for....

    just google it up and it sold for "$50+ million in 2007"

    http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/03/11/grand-central-to-finally-launch-as-google-voice-its-very-very-good/
    wow, i get such fantasies when i see a story like that, but i digress, yes its a very nice thing to have.

    @theprofitpro: if you took time to look into this you'd have noticed he only posted and shared to the download section.

    posts in this section aren`t added to the post count, same with posts to the lounge section.

    take a litle extra time to investigate before pointing your finger ;)

    EDIT: profitnow beat me to it...

    This is NOT invitation.
    You can go online: http://www.google.com/googlevoice/about.html
    click on Get An Invite, you go to this page
    https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googlevoiceinvite/

    So all he is doing is: letting everyone know that the service is available for US residents.

    But don't be under impression that he is Inviting anyone.

    I signed up 10 days ago and still waiting.

    Thanks for clearing that up. You are right I totally jumped the gun. It looked fishy.
    No finger pointing intended. It just didn't look right.

    Well it adds up perfectly if you understand how this forum works. He has 29 posts, and all but one of them is in the Download section. When you post in this section, your post count does not go up. So, he's posted in the download section and received 125 thanks for his posts in this section and has thanked 359 other posts. This is totally normal. Nothing mysterious going on. ;)

    patience! i have two now, actually one for my biz, which was my grandcentral number, and now i just got one for a nonprofit group i am a member of. i just got the nonprofit number assigned last week. frankly i just forgot about it, i think it took one or two months.
    i am also putting request for another nonprofit and a community web portal.
