After losing out on the T-Mobile bidding wars to AT&T, Sprint made an exciting announcement in a new partnership with Google. Sprint and Google will be linking your existing cell phone to your Google Voice account. With their unlimited plans in place, this makes a very formidable plan for any carrier, and even more so for one that is so committed to the Android platform.
Some details that are highlighted are the ability to have 6 numbers ring with your Sprint/Google number, plus you can forward them to your PC as well. You can also ring certain handsets when certain people call, block unwanted callers, and screen calls in real time – picking up only when you want to.
Google Voice continues to offer free Voice Mail transcription, push notifications for Voice Mail, Text Messages and call logs, via the Google Voice app.
