Ooo ! Ooo ! I want Google Voice really bad, just for this :
The SMS messages that are sent to your Google number will also be displayed on the website. You can reply to the SMS from the Web as well.holy christ it's so retarded that I get texts in my phone and have to reply using my phone keypad when I'm sitting right here at my computer. All forms of my communications should be accessible from any kind of electronic portal.
I pray to god Google puts the predatory incompetent corrupt cell phone companies out of business. Maybe next Google will open a bank?
Actually a Google Bank is not a terrible idea.
... well I got in the Beta for Voice. Hmm.. I'm not sure that it's actually awesome. The problem is that the "read" status for voice mail & text messages is not propagated among the various devices (handset and computer), which means I have to look through things in both locations. That's annoying. Also the texts that are sent through to your phone show up as being from some random Google number, not the original sender, so you can't easily identify the sender in your phone, you have to read them all.
The transcribed voicemail is awesome, but again the result is that my real phone voice mailbox fills up with shit I've already seen on the web, and I have to go through and maintain that all the time. I guess if I had an Android phone and it was actually all kept in sync properly that would rock.
