Default Google Voice - BlackBerry integration

Got Google Voice...it's awesome!

phonetag and youmail are DEAD...

I have it set up to just be my voicemail system so i get transcribed emails for each voicemail i get.

And, of course, PocketDay (our product) recognizes it and alerts you continuously until you read the email.

Woo hoo!!!

good idea to set it up as your VM. What if people call you on it directly? I assume you do not have any phone forwarding set up? Will this disable SMS forwarding?

I'm green with envy. How were you able to get Google Voice already?

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.

Yes - I think so? I had submitted a long time ago and just got my invite today.

Am researching it right now to see all of the ins and outs.

Just loaded the PocketDay Beta as well and it is pretty badazz so far!

I've had google voice since the first batch of invites to grand central.

At the moment I'm mostly just using it as described, to get my voicemail transcribed and emailed to me. I love it. It works great, and makes things easier for me. I greatly prefer having a transcript of my voicemails, and the fact that they are online is very convienent.

I love the fact that you can create your own custom number just like BEST BUY

Pretty good service: free transcription. I have ditched youmail.

There is a mobile version to change your settings on the go: www.google.com/voice/m

Just waiting for number portability and that will be perfect.

It is pretty sweet,

Im almost done setting everything up. The trascription is more accurate than Youmail for sure. I call to my country all the time and at 0.09 a minute? can't beat that, good bye calling cards.

P.S. It's funny how my upgrade was there when i logged into my old grand central account. It let me choose any gmail for my upgrade too. Loving the call record feature too.

GOOGLE ARE GODS!!!!!

I'll switch permanently when there's a visual voicemail app to delete my voicemails easily on my phone.

Yes it would be nice to have a dedicated app but the mobile site isn't bad. You can read the transcript and mark messages read - oh and listen to them in any order....

Not sure if anyone posted this yet... the Blackberry app is available.

I just wish Sprint wouldn't charge so much for call forwarding! I might actually use it then...
