Google Voice For BlackBerry Updates For Faster Calls

July 24, 2010 | By | 2 Comments

Well, nearly almost all calls. First, Google Voice is only available for the U.S. currently. Secondly, according to their official Google Voice Blog, the update isn’t active at this time for 100% of the calls, but they are planning for it to be effective sometime next week. What’s so great about Google Voice?

I have used it on my BlackBerry, back since it was by invite only. Since that time, it’s been extended to anyone in the U. S. The advantage lies in the fact that you can choose a Google number from anywhere in the U.S. This is great if you’d like family to call you but don’t want them to pay long distance. You can also choose more than one phone to answer the calls. The cell number allows you to have two different phone numbers on one device. I also love that you’re able to screen your calls, because when it comes through it tells you the caller and asks if you want to accept. Before, when it would bring the call through, there would be a lapse and then you had to either accept or decline the caller. I’m pretty excited to think the call time coming through will be at a faster speed. Did I mention it’s free? What are you waiting for? If you haven’t signed up yet, give it a shot. If you have, update your app now.
