Students Given Priority for Google Voice Invites

Sick of waiting months and months for a Google Voice invite?  If you are a student, you can now jump to the front of the invite list!  In fact, if you have a school email address, you  can receive an invite within 24 hours.

Just visit this site and enter a .edu email address.

What about a Droid Life reader shortlist Google?  We’ve got people wanting GV!

    This is awesome, been waiting months now since I got my Droid in Feb. when I signed up for it the regular way. See this article, go looks at my school's web portal since I've gone back to school in the last couple years, and sure enough I have a student email hehe. Sign up, less than 20 hours later I have an invite. Still figuring it all out but this definitely amazing.

  • jkim

    I dont understand. THere is a google voice app in the market that you can DL for me. whats the difference between that and this? What invite?

  • Chris Nimon

    Got invite and set up with the new number option. So now that many of us have it, how about a review to show us all the good stuff we do with it.

    • Onodi

      If anyone has an invite to spare I'd be grateful

      • Chris Nimon

  • Zander_206

    Whoaaaaa i finally got a GOOGLE INVITE!!!! i have been trying to get one for so long …. its about time paying for my tuition has gave me something in return other than education .. google voice rocks this definitely should come with the phone :)

  • kaos2flo

    I got the invite for the students. Although I don't have the option to make “all calls” using GV, just all international calls. I have a Droid. Does any other student GV have the option to make “all calls” using GV?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanepps Jordan Christopher Epps

    So has anyone gotten an invite from this yet? I'm still waiting…

    • Michael_NM

      My came through at about 10:00 last night. I set it up today. However, I don't see any invites to give. :(

      • http://www.facebook.com/jordanepps Jordan Christopher Epps

        just checked my mail…an invite!! :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=215301209 Jeff Jackson Jr.

    I'm a college student at a college that doesn't understand the importance of giving their students an .edu e-mail account…could someone please send me an invite? My e-mail address is jeff.jackson.jr09@gmail.com, and I do have several Google Wave invites to spare if you want one of those in exchange.

  • folks99

    I would like an invite to GV. I have 8 invites to Wave if anyone needs one. pfolks at gmail.

  • wgpeter

    I have one invite left for Google voice and like 15 for Google Wave if anyone needs it. Just email me at william @ fourpetersons dot com. All I ask is that if you have invites given to you, you would do the same for others.

    Kellex, I know you hear it a lot but your site is awesome. Thanks for all you do to help us non-tech savvy people with easy to follow tutorials, etc. Totally appreciate what you do as well as all the followers you have that are willing to help.

    • wgpeter

      On there way to you Adam. Enjoy.

    I knew there was some cosmic reason for going back to school at 36.

    Thanks for the heads up, just did mine, Waitn…. ;-)

  • carig

    Yes! Thank you Google! I didn't even bother signing up cause I didn't wanna wait forever, but 24 hours I'm excited. I have 2 .edu accounts too. If only they could do the same thing with Google Wave now.

  • Dom

    Can someone send me and invite domdelatorre@gmail.com

  • Jay

    yay @ still having my edu address

    I think the only thing I ever used it for was initially setting up Facebook back when Facebook was only for college students. Whenever professors emailed me it was to my gmail account.

  • TreHenry

    I have GV and have had it for awhile now. When I go to GV on my PC it says I have 2 invites to send out didn't know so many people wanted it.

  • Josef F

    I've got 3 invites left. If any of you non-students out there want to give it a shot, let me know.

    • Sapko

      Josef I would love an invite thanks in advance, been waiting too long

      • Josef F

        OK, send your email address here (jff@insightbb.com) and I'll send it to you

        • Sapko

          i just did, cant thank you enough

          • Josef F

            You're welcome! I just sent the invite, so hopefully you'll get it soon. Enjoy!

            All invites are gone now, but if they reload me with any more (which they've done once or twice before) I'll offer them up to my droid-life bruthas

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1314742307 Rich Gurska

          Big thanks for the invite :-D

    • dragon19104

      Josef – If you still have one, I would greatly appreciate an invite. Thanks! dragon19104 at gmail

    I am a Student. This will be the most balls-to-the-walls exciting thing to happen to me.

  • zerolozen

    I have had one for about 2 months and have not been getting any invites to send out. And I have been using it ever call I make so I can get the invites to send out to people. Which I will to you guys when I get them, for all of the support I have gotten out of this site. Figure its my time to give back to the community.

    I do have to say Google Voice is pretty nice. I use it as my work phone number for when I am out of the office. I also have it set up that it goes to my work phone if I do not pick up my cell phone.

  • redbar0n11

    I don't get the whole invite, waiting, etc??? I heard about GV, I went into the market, downloaded it, installed it, set it up, and used it? – No ask for invite, no emails, no confirmations, nothing. I have been using it ever since… No more dialing Voicemail for me! Soooo, am I missing something? Why can't everyone just go get it, and then use it?

    • timarnette

      I did the same as you.

  • caphoagie

    Where is the invite for collage drop outs.

    • Michael_NM

      LOL! Is that when one picture falls off of the collection? :P

      • briderx

        First time in a LONG time I've laughed at something posted in a forum.. Ha ha ha. Good one!

  • syntakk

    Hey Kellex, maybe you can try to take up a collection of extra GV invites from people who have a student email but already have GV, then do another contest? If I can get into my old student account then I'll have an extra to get you started.

  • scuzzullbutt

    Im tired of waiting :( when are they going to open it up to everyone?

  • Michael_NM

    Yee-haw!!! I've been waiting a looooong time for an invite. I submitted my student email and if I get more invites I'll give them to my favorite professor (Dr. Droid) to use as he sees fit. Maybe another contest?

  • mcdoogles

    all u need is someone who has it… they can send u an invite

    • Brandon

      How do I send an invite to someone since I already have GV? I can't figure it out.

      • Zander_206

        On the bottom of your left-handed column it should have a link that says “Invite a friend” right under the “calling credit” .. once you click on it, then it should say how many invites you have or if its not there you might not have any….. Unfortunately i only know this from doing lots of searches to try to find a way to get an INVITE myself and remember that's where other people got answered where it is…. So if you do have a extra invite i would greatly appreciate one .

  • http://www.madeofawesome.net JimK

    I'm on it like stink on a monkey. Will report back if I get it. Oh I'm SO glad my FiL set me up on his department email. It comes in handy from time to time. Sad thing is I *am* a student but my community college doesn't give out student emails. Which is part of the uniquely crappy community college experience, I suppose. :)

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/STA37OFVH2B2H2F3NBS5L3F5NM Monkeybut

    I might have an invite I could spare. Maybe some one is willing to help me out by making a boot ani for meh? Just kidding, I have one invite, first person with a convincing story wins it?

    • dylan84

      My girlfriend is going to italy for 5 weeks and I would LOVE to be able to be able to keep in touch with her through google voice!

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/STA37OFVH2B2H2F3NBS5L3F5NM Monkeybut

        your story is the best so far

        • dylan84

          Oh that would be so amazingly awesome if you would help me out with the invite!

        • dylan84

          If you decide to send it my way my email address is captaincanada84@gmail.com

    • keithsmith22

      Because I want it to have it and use it.

    • caphoagie

      I should get it because I thing monkey but is the greatest user name I have never seen. Lol

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/RXFWXDUWRRHCGFV6NP2SDZ7YLU Ray

    My friend sent me an invite so it didn't take that long at all!

  • cpeter753

    This is one of the few advantages of being a starving Engineering student in college. lol

    Still waiting myself. Would love to use the service but not able to.

  • dylan84

    Too bad my college email address expired recently. Damn.

  • poeddroiduser

    I put one request in at least 6 months if not a year ago. NADA Put another in about 6 months ago NADA Put last on in when I got a my Droid in Jan NADA

  • keithsmith22

    I have been waiting months and months and have even applied multiple times. Does anyone know a way to set up a temporary .edu email address until you get the invite and then you can convert it over?

  • StephanC

    I got my GV invite in about a week and that was when the service was brand new! I don't understand why people have to wait so long now!

    • kellex

      I received mine in a few weeks, but the list is 1,000,000 miles long now I believe. People are waiting months now.

      • rebelz13

        It took me 2 months to get it. I actually forgot all about it until I was notified….

        • http://twitter.com/Durrock2000 Derek Weber

          I think it depends on what market you're in. I've been waiting at least 6 months and still nothing. I live in rural Wisconsin and I'm sure that's not an area they're eager to beta test in.

      • Kt

        My mom got it when it first came out for a business line. So im sure she has an invite for me, but i have no idea how to find her account online to send her invite to me any help? hit me up at Dodgesityballer@aol.com
