The nice this if you have Verizon or T-Mobile would be to make it a favorite number, then, you can call your google number from your phone, and dial any number in your phone book from there.
If you give people your google number, it will forward to other phones including cell and sip.
I use it as the other poster mentioned, just forward unanswered calls to my google number for voicemail as I gave everyone my cell number now and it would be too difficult to change it. Maybe when GV allows porting, I might switch my cell number to it.
