Google Voice number porting isn’t exactly new, we wrote about it 5 days ago, but today it became a little more official. The Google team even tossed together a quick little video to help get your number ported over and service back up and running.
We’d like to remind you all though, that by porting over your number, you’ll be cancelling your contract with your current carrier. This could result in some unwanted fees, so proceed with caution. Most of you will want to wait until your contract is up before going this route. If you want to have your same phone number forever though, this is something to consider.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdQmGLjvMGo[/youtube]
