is this google voice on the iphone?
Yes, Google Voice is now approved for iPhone. Apple and Google were clashing over this but that has now been settled.
Google Voice! I have an Android phone right now, and it works great with it. Top 5 advantages:
(1) You will always have one number for the rest of your life, no matter how many times you change your other numbers. If I move, my cell phone # will change but I will just go into my Google Voice account and change my cell # there and the same Google Voice # will forward calls to me.
(2) My Google Voice number is in the NYC area code, so my friends and family there that don't have long distance service (yes, there are still people like that) can dial my number locally and the call will come through to my phone in FL. It's like I am down the block
(3) When someone leaves you a voicemail, it's transcribed into text and you can read right on your phone or computer without listening to it (the transcription is not perfect yet, but helps at a glance to see what the message is generally about). You always have the option to immediately play the message right below the text.
(4) When you use Voice on your cell phone, you have the option of calling the person back with either your cell # or Google Voice # as the caller ID.
(5) It's freaking FREE!
I have never had any problems with Google Voice, and calls are just like any other good connection. There are some very other cool features, but I could go on and on. Let's just say this is the next best thing to keeping your phone number forever!
