Google Voice Free Services ends for US/Canada by end of the Year? DerrickB 8/26/10 9:20 AM
I was reading on BBC News website about Google rolling out Google Voice over into Gmail. I found this to be a great feature to place in their e-mail services. However, I did notice on BBC News website that Google will be ending their free services for calling the US and Canada for free. I was wondering if anyone has any knowledge of this and can point me into a better direction on Google's website, if this turns out to be true.

I can't say I can complain. I've really enjoyed Google Voice but it's not up my isle to pay for an extra phone line. When I already have unlimited (both cell phone and landline) long distance calling throughout the US, Canada, and all of the EU on select landlines.

If this pans out to be true... I can only give my wishes to Google of a successful service. I don't blame Google either as these telephone numbers they're leasing from Comcast aren't free.

This is where I read about the free Google Voice ending by the end of the year.

I was reading that news article and it does look like they are discontinuing the free US and Canada calls and making GV a fee based service

Looks like they might be going to start charging a fee

This is what I was thinking myself... Until I read that BBC News report about Google Voice (possibly) ending by end of the year. I'm just going to play it safe and let all my family and friends know to start calling me back on my cell phone and landline.

It only has to do with GV in Gmail, not actually GV.

The official Google Voice Blog is the best place to get information about Google Voice.

Here is an interesting thread with a Google employee speaking about Google Voice:
