    It’s also worth noting that this number works for actual phone calls as well. Calling the (406) number will show your Google Voice number on the recipient’s phone as the caller ID.

    OK that’s cool. So you could create “Google Voice Speed Dial Numbers” for all your friends that would automatically call from your GV account. GV is making using the phone fun again :-)

    Now here is a question I have not yet figured out. If you call a person using their 406 (Google Assigned) number, does it affect your calling plan? For example, I’m on Verizon, if I call someone on their 406 number, even though they are on Verizon, am I charged with calling a non-Verizon user?

    This could be important to people who have low minute plans, and use the “in” calling.

    It’s no different than if you called your fellow Verizon user on their land line at home. Or on their office phone. You may be calling a Verizon user, but you’re calling Verizon to Google Voice to Verizon. “In” calling is only for direct Verizon# to Verizon#.

    And even if it were a gray area, one only need remember that we’re talking about arguably the most restrictive, closed carrier in the U.S. No way in hell are they going to give someone free usage of a potentially competing product…
