googlevoiceI’ve just upgraded my GrandCenteral account to GoogleVoice while watching an episode of 24 on Hulu. For those of you who may not know GrandCenteral is a service best known for its ability to simultaneously froward calls to a number of other phones which you specify (home, office, mobile, etc) allowing you to answer which ever phone may be most convenient at the time. It also offers a number of other features such as voice mail, call transfer, call recording, and call screening.

The service was brought by Google some time ago which is now allowing GrandCenteral users to upgrade their accounts to the new GoogleVoice Service which adds the long desired feature of SMS messages. Upon upgrade you must change the settings to have SMS messages sent to your phone as well as your GoogleVoice account this setting is disabled by default, other new features include voicemail transcription, cheap international calling rates, the ability to make free US calls, and send free SMS messages from your GoogleVoice account.

One thing to note is that Google Starts you off with $1.00 of free international calling credit, additional credits must be purchased for your account through the GoogleCheckout service.
