Google Voice Number Porting Made Official

| January 25, 2011 | Reply

Well, we’ve seen news about it.  If you’ve tried to change your Google Voice number, you’ve seen it, but what is it?  Really.  Google Voice number porting has been sent out of it’s “beta” stage and has become official.  Now, for a one-time $20 fee, plus whatever early termination fees your carrier charges you, you can port your current phone number as your Google Voice number.  What this means is that whenever somebody calls you on your current number, it will ring as your Google Voice number, across all of the phones you set it to.  But don’t let me tell you how it’s done!  Let Google tell you all the details in the following video!

Now, this feature isn’t currently available for new Google Voice users.  You must have a Google Voice account already to port your number, but Google says they plan on rolling it out to new customers in the next few weeks.    Have you ported your number yet?  Thinking about it?  What do you think?  Let us know in the comments section below!
