Google Voice Adds Number Porting - Carriers Cry

I'm a huge fan of Google Voice with it's ability to screen calls, send calls to multiple devices, and voicemail transcription. The Achilles Heel was that you couldn't port your number over. Well my friends, today Google has quietly enabled number porting for Google Voice, which truly is a game changer. (Note: Google is slowly rolling this out, so you may not have this option available.)

Now you can port your home number to Google Voice and then use a service like TELTUB to have unlimited voice minutes to the U.S. and Canada for $5/month!

We've come a long way since my number portability rant back in 2006.
