Save some money, get Google Voice

We like to show you ways to save money on this site and a cool one is Google Voice. You can find it at www.google.com/voice
With Google Voice, you get one number for all your phones, cheap international calls, voicemail like email, and more, for free! (US only)
Definately the people that should really look at this is those with a small business. Here is some reason to check out Google Voice, it is really cool!
1) Be local, even when you’re not: When setting up Google Voice, you have the option of selecting a phone number with the area code of your choice.
2) Phone number for life: If your business moves (perhaps to cheaper digs outside the city), your Google Voice number stays with you. And if you switch to a new office phone provider or wireless carrier, your customers won’t lose your number. Since you can configure your Google Voice number to ring one of more other phones, such as a work, home, or cell number, it’s less likely that you’ll miss important business calls too.
3) Easy voice conferencing: Nobody likes to enter a lengthy pass code and other digit strings to enter a conference call. Google Voice has a simpler approach: Participants ring your Google Voice number; as each call comes in, you follow the prompts to connect them to the conference.
5) Send free texts: Does your wireless plan make you pay per text message? Those nickel and dime costs add up fast. With Google Voice, you can send free SMS text messages from your Google number. You also can configure your account to route copies of texts to e-mail.
6) Different customers, different voicemail greetings: Want a special greeting for your best customers? Google Voice lets you set up personalized greetings for individual contacts.
7) Never miss an order: You can set up your account to ring certain phones based on who’s calling, or on the time of day. Let’s say it’s dinnertime and you’re expecting a big purchase order from an international customer. Google Voice will automatically route the call to the number of your choice.
8) Call screening: Remember how you used to be able to screen incoming calls with answer machines? With Google Voice, you can listen to a voicemail message as it’s being recorded. An automated voice prompt gives you the option of taking the call or letting it roll to voicemail. Call screening is a good way to avoid, well, people you’d rather not talk to at the moment (e.g., bill collectors or irate customers).
And much more!
