[citation][nom]hellwig[/nom]I think that's backwards, is it not? Wouldn't your old, ported number then be forwarded to your new cell-number? Isn't that the point of porting your old number, so you can continue to give out that old number rather than a new number? That's the whole point of Google Voice, right? Use one number, and have those calls forwarded to any number of other phone lines (cell, home, work, etc...)? I still don't know about giving my number to Google. What happens in a year or too when they never move this service out of beta and shut it down, will I be able to get my phone number back?[/citation]
You're right! Sorry, I got them the wrong way around. Yes, that is the whole point of Google Voice, though I agree with you in not really being sure of Google having my phone number... They already have my name, address and credit card info from when I bought my Nexus One, so it likely doesn't matter at this stage, but still..
