It’s been too long since Sprint has done anything to make me a happy customer. I have to admit these last few months at Sprint has been less then thrilling. Well, with the exception maybe of the Evo 3D announcement. Even that was only really exciting to me because I was half expecting another Echo situation, which in my opinion was a complete disaster. I’m happy to report though that Sprint is doing something very cool with Google Voice, the merging of services is just amazing!
First it’s simple to do, login at the Google Voice site and it will give you a couple of options, either transferring your Google Voice number to Sprint or your Sprint number to Google Voice. I chose to keep my Sprint number since I didn’t have a Google Voice number before, and I hate having to change phone numbers. A pop up box will come up letting you choose to get a call then to verify everything. When you get connected to the cal,l enter the 2 digit number into your phone that’s displayed on your monitor……and you’re done!
I also am texting through the Google Voice app on my Evo, which is amazing. I work from home, so I spend more of my day then I care to admit sitting at my computer. It’s so nice to be able to read and respond to at text right from my computer. Or even read the transcription from a voice mail, and listen to the voice mail! It’s especially nice with the Google Chrome extension for Google Voice because an icon sits right on my browser and let’s me know if I’ve got messages! Also you can read transcriptions of your voice mail from the Google Voice app, a service I love.
I am totally in love with this new Sprint and Google fun! Are you a Sprint customer? If so have you taken advantage of the complete set of Google Voice features yet?!
