How I became a mobile phone “free agent” by switching to Google Voice
UPDATE, February 2016: The following post was originally from September 2012, shortly after I ported my Verizon number to Google Voice. I’ve since updated it a bit (you’ll see a few “updates” throughout, mainly because I’m too lazy to write a totally new post), but some portions may still be reflective of Google Voice functionality, circa 2012 (again…I’m lazy). I’m still an active/avid user of Google Voice, although Google Hangouts essentially serves as my “daily driver” now (using my Google Voice number).
It’s safe to say my cell provider won’t be sending me a Christmas card again this year. In late 2012, I broke up with Verizon and went to a pay-as-you-go cell plan (also with Verizon, but we were free to date other people…). At the same time, I ported my cell number to Google Voice, and thus gained “free agent” status in the world of cellular telephony.
