Are you ready for Google Voice

Does it drive you nuts to have to check voicemail on more than one phone?

Have you ever started a call on a land line and then wanted to transfer the call to your cell phone so that you can finish from outside?

Ever call someone, leave a message with your office number, then leave your office and realize that forgot to give your cell number?

Would you like to be able to send text messages from your computer rather than from your cell phone?

Ever wish you could listen in on while someone was leaving a voicemail and then decide to pick up (like those old answering machines allowed) — or that you could read your voicemail as an email or text message rather than having to call into a system (like iPhone’s visual voicemail)?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ll probably want to try Google Voice, a new service that has “future of telephone” written all over it. It’s not a phone service provider, so you’ll still need your contract with whatever company provides your service. Rather it’s a new phone number that can coordinate your different phones and allow you to do a slew of things easily and efficiently. I’ve been playing around with it for a few days to see whether it’s something that will help or complicate life at work. (I’m not the only one on Shine playing around. Daily Grommet just did a post explaining how it works and how to get on the waiting list for a number.)

So what does Google Voice mean for your career? {Read the rest at Yahoo!}
