Using Google Voice

Google Voice is a combination of phone service/text messaging program/ voicemail system/long distance carrier, and it's free. Learn about how to set up a completely free local telephone number for yourself that will ring through to your home phone, office phone, cellphone, and vacation home, depending upon what day it is or even what time of the day it is. Voicemail messages are transcribed and can go directly to your email; you can send text messages from a web page, and even make long distance calls for free!
