They dont have Canadian numbers either.

So I opted for a phone number in las vegas. (Just had to get someone with a US IP address to register for me) Now if I want to make free calls I just have google voice call my cellphone and their number at the same time.

Most of the people I know in the states have free calling in the USofA so it works out.

I've been considering just getting a Washington state number.

The way google voice will be working is that you can set it to ring certain telephone numbers based on who is calling (its kinda like a routing service) After dropping my cell phone I'd get an iPod touch, since I'm always within wireless internet service at when at school/in my apt, on which I would set-up the Skype App, and get a plug-in microphone (do iPhone earbud microphones work on iPod touches?) or hopefully the new iPod touch will have a mic built in. Then whatever texts/calls I recieved I could manage and respond using that. After about 5 months of not paying cell phone bills, my iPod touch would be payed off, and I could continue to use my skype/google voice services ANYWHERE I receive WIFI, at school, in the US, w/e.

The iPod Touch does not have a built in mic, but any headset or earbud/mic combo will work, as long as it just has the one input/output jack.

Also, you can get both the Skype app, and Textfree, which is an app that lets you send/recieve SMS messages without needing a cell number (works via email). As a handy bonus, you can get an app like Trillian that hooks into your internet text message accounts (Gmail Chat, Yahoo!, MSN, ICQ, etc...).

Yeah, I sort of love my iPod touch.

Would anyone possibly still have an invite to spare? I know it's a long shot and an old post. I would really appreciate it.

This looks pretty interesting. I'm a big fan of what google puts out so if anybody has an invite left (I know I'm reaching) I'd be happy to take it off your hands.
