About my first experiences using Google Voice on the Pre.
I recently got my Google Voice account set up and am pretty excited about its potential. As of now, there is no native application for using Google Voice on the Pre, but it is possible to dial out through your Google Voice account either by going through the web page or calling your Google Voice number from the phone and following the instructions.
My first few experiences making and receiving calls were pretty seamless. Messages I received from others are transcribed into visual voicemail and sent to me almost immediately as a text message and somewhat later as an email (but only because I have my email set to pull every hour). And the transcription was spot on.
As of now, Google Voice does not accept ported numbers, but when that day comes, this user will port away and finally be able to fully own the number I have had for the last decade.
