I'm learning more about Google Voice every day, especially as I anticipate attending the Family Law Section's Winter Conference in Antigua in February. My cellular service is provided by Verizon and I don't want to change because my cell phone coverage is so excellent in my home / office location. However, I cannot get Verizon cellular service in Antigua. Exploring options for long-distance calling (and preparing my presentation for the conference--focusing on some of the tools in "Jeanne's Toolbox"), I reviewed Google Voice again. My interest had been piqued earlier when I learned about recording cell phone calls with Google Voice. With Google Voice, I can make long distance calls for $0.14/minute!
But Google Voice has much, much more to offer.
