Google Voice Begins Number Porting

Google has begun offering U.S. number porting to its Google Voice service. The porting carriers a $20 fee and is completed in about 24 hours after a request.

Google Voice, which is based on the GrandCentral service that Google acquired in July 2007, provides the user with a single phone number that will ring your home, work, and mobile phones, a central voicemail inbox that you could access on the web, and the ability to screen calls by listening in live as callers leave a voicemail.
