Does anyone know how long until google starts charging for this service or is it going to stay free forever?

There's a very good chance GV will remain free.  It's likely Google will add professional grade services for a charge and/or some ad based activity.

Google voice is going to remain free for domestic calls and SMS by subsidizing the cost though the money they make on international calls and SMS

An Article from  NYTimes.com

Vincent Paquet, a co-founder of GrandCentral and now a senior product manager at Google, said that fees from Internet calls would probably play an important role in subsidizing the free service, which for now will not carry advertisements.

“We can generate enough revenue from international calling to support the service,” he said, noting that Google Voice was now running on Google’s servers and could operate at very low cost.
