So everyone is a twitter about google voice and using the service for all sorts of things. Having it call you and call a contact to make a "free" call. I'm an AT&T wireless customer and do not have a home land line, I dont see how I can benefit from using google voice to make calls for me. Let me explain:
My AT&T plan gives me X minutes of talk time per month and "unlimited" talk time after a certian time and weekends. When I call a friend using google voice it calls me then calls them and we can talk. By doing so it's eating up minutes on my phone since AT&T doesnt provide free incoming calls (unless something changed I don't know about). Lets say I use the GV method and call a fellow AT&T customer, now I'm really screwing myself since we both have AT&T and we're not using our unlimited mobile to mobile talk time.
The only benifit I see here is that if you're calling someone from a land line and want your GV number to show up on caller ID then you'll be able to do so for free.
Am I missing something? Let me know in the comments
