No need to transfer your number!
A few years back you would need to worry about keeping that number of yours for your friends and family, so they wouldn’t have to worry about updating that number of yours. In today’s time we have a great option for everyone to keep your number where ever you go. You no longer have to tell people to update there numbers for you. After today, you will have a number that you can keep and use where ever you go. It is only available in the USA, so please keep that in mind.
Google Voice Features
Google Voice is the one thing that I recommend to my family and friends, to have a number that you can give out to anyone, and keep your cellphone account private. It is almost like Ring Central but it is virtually free for any Google user. I have had my number for over 2 years and that is the only number I give out to anyone I know. It helps me because I am using prepaid and it allows me to try different phones on different prepaid networks. I also get unlimited calls and text messages when I use this service because most cell providers like Virgin Mobile US gives you unlimited data on all accounts. So you no longer have to worry about how many minutes you have used.
Choosing your Number!
In order to get started with Google Voice, you will need to Choose your Number through Google. This part is free, unless you intend to change the number later on. Which is a 10$ one time charge for everytime you change the number Unlike Ring Central, which cost your a monthly service fee for using their service.
- Number Forwarding
- Number Filtering
- Voicemail Transcription (Experimental)
- One Number for the life of your account!
- SMS to Emails
- Do not Disturb feature!
As you can see there are many benefits to using this service. It is also avail for the Google Android and Apple IOS devices such as Iphones, And Samsung Galaxy Smart Phones. I have been using it on the ZTE AWE from Virgin Mobile USA and it works flawlessly without using any minutes!.
Now that you have seen the benefits of this service, I am sure you are going to go check it out. If you decide you want to keep from giving everything to Google, you can always go to Ring Central and pay for their service which has many to all the same things you can do with Google Voice but that is up to you! It just depends on what you want to do!
