Here’s another good reason to stay in school. Google is giving away Google Voice Invites for everyone with an .edu address. So all you college students and subsequently teachers can head over to Google Voice Student page now and get started.
Usually when you receive a Google Voice invite you can then turn around and invite others, there is no mention of that on the page. This service allows you to receive visual and transcribed voicemail and you can send and receive text messages. It also gives you a new number that you can use right from your Android handset, now you can have a business and a personal line.
Some users have even figured out how to use this service together with other apps to get free calls via their Android handset. This is a really sweet deal, if you’re unfamiliar with Google Voice and its features, here’s a short video on how it works:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBTuOYPwtss&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]
