Google Voice Invitation

If you haven't already heard about it, Google Voice is a service that makes using your current phones much better!

Providing one personal phone number that rings all of your existing phones when people call, all of your voicemail in one inbox with unlimited online storage and free voicemail transcripts sent to your phone and email.

There are low-priced international calling to over 200 countries and free SMS, plus other powerful features like the first phone spam filter to protect you from unwanted callers, the ability to ListenInTM on your voicemail messages while they are being left, conference calling and more. I personally like the option to record calls and store them online and the ability to switch phones during a call.

Yesterday I received an email notification that I had been invited to open a free Google Voice account. Having followed this since it was announced in March I was excited about experiencing what's available through the service. I accepted the invitation only to be informed that Google Voice is not available in my country. It's not yet open for users outside the US, but they are planning to expand the service to additional countries in the future.
