"Sprint and Google announced today a new integrated Google VoiceTM experience that will allow Sprint customers to set their existing Sprint wireless phone number as their Google Voice number. Sprint customers will be able to take advantage of all the features and benefits of Google Voice without the hassle and fees associated with porting their number. Sprint is the first and only carrier to offer this capability, which will be available soon on all Sprint CDMA phones."
Do you know what Telephone Freedom is? It's putting the same number in all of those spots on forms marked "Home Phone", "Work Phone", "Mobile Phone", etc... That's the fun of Google Voice, and starting soon, Sprint subscribers will have an easier path to use the service. A major score for Google in getting the service adopted, for sure. But really it's a major score for Sprint users. Once you switch to Google Voice, you wonder how you ever got by without it.
