It is possible to do this for free, I did it once. There are a few voip providers out there that offer a free DID, usually in some area code with a high terminantion fee. The one I found offered free incoming calls and paygo outgoing. Perfect! :D I used the softphone but if I recall they allowed hardware devices as well. I forwarded GV to this for a time but decided it was just easier to let GV forward to my cell and a routing scheme in the office phone system.

I've also read about guys building up an Asterisk PBX and configuring it in such a way to set up calls through Google Voice. Seems like an awful lot of work when you can get an unlimited cell phone for 40 bucks.

The google phone can be used by us radio people just have to have a lot of time to set it up. I along with a friend of mine have it setup as well as mix/minus to where we use 2 mixers and 2 sound cards and a compressor. It is a lot of wires but it can be done kids. I think I will take a picture of my studio and show it off here. But it works very clean and just like if I had a phone pot on a studio PC.
