For those of you have GrandCentral (now Google Voice) accounts, you already know what a great service it is. Since Google bought them, they’ve revamped the service and added lots of new features. However, having to change your number is a bit of a showstopper, particularly for folks who have lots of contacts and trying to inform them all of your # change would be a major PITA.
The potentially good news is that Google may add number portability to the service later this year, so says TechCrunch who got that info from a Google employee. This would be the single biggest thing that drives new customers Google’s way.
By the way, if you’re interested in helping out the cause, you can suggest to Google features you’d like to see in GVoice.
