Perhaps the biggest hurdle Google Voice faces is that it doesn't support number porting, forcing potential users to adapt to a new phone number. That's going to change.
Some Google Voice users are finally seeing the option to transfer their existing number over, TechCrunch reports . Google says it's testing the feature and plans to roll it out to everyone before long.
"We're continually testing new features to enhance the user experience," Google said in a statement. "For a limited amount for time, we're making the Google Voice number porting process available to users. We don't have any additional details to share at this time, but plan to offer this feature to all users in the near future."
If you're account's been flagged, you'll find the option in the settings menu. From there, you're just a few mouse clicks (and $20) away from porting your existing number over to Google Voice and sticking it to Ma Bell.
