    So now that Google voice is up and running has anyone set it up? I can't get mine to work. I try to add a number and it tries to call me to verify and I have to input a 2 digit verification code that never works. Wondering if anyone has had any success with it.

    I just set mine up.

    After online phone number selection and entering my cell number, the automated service called me to verify and I entered the two digit number as instructed. The voice prompt stated I was activated and asked if I wanted to record a voicemail message. Simple as that.

    If you look on Gizmodo, there is an article talking about how they are going to be releasing a stand alone app for the iPhone to send calls and texts for Google Voice. It isn't out yet, but it should be coming soon.

    I set up mine on Wednesday. I have to admit it. I really like it. Some of the features are very cool.

    I want to know if the people that downloaded it BEFORE Apple pulled it from the 'shelves', does the application still work?

    Still works for me as well. I had feared that it would disappear when I synced but everything's fine.

    YMMV

    I tend to think of them as the "poor cousins" of iPhone users.

    Just kidding, folks!

    If you've got a GV account you can still access it on your iPhone by going to:
    www.google.com/voice/m in Safari.

    Are you referring to the new GV feature where you don't use a new number but only the voicemail? I haven't tried that because I use the full-featured GV with a new number and such.
