Today Google sent the FCC a letter wherein it disclosed that it will limit the types of calls it blocks with its Google Voice product. Google said, "We told the FCC today that Google Voice now restricts calls to fewer than 100 specific phone numbers, all of which we have good reason to believe are engaged in…schemes." Google said it will no longer block certain rural numbers, which it originally implied were too expensive to connect. AT&T had asked the FCC to investigate the service earlier this month. The FCC said it is reviewing Google's letter, but has not said it will call of its own investigation.

i understand why at&t and verizon and sprint and yada yada do it, but why should google? they aren't offering phone service as defined by traditional standards. block numbers. i don't care. it's free. why the hell are there people complaining about free stuff??? and tell at&t and randall and ralph that if they don't like it, they can do something to their company to get their stock prices as high as google and actually gain respect from consumers............... those two are ruining at&t........... worst. mistake. ever. to the at&t name............

Heck AT&T can't even get good service to the people they serve now, they just can't stand the fact that someone else may just have a better product than they have or maybe provide better quality. AT&T has been in bed with Apple so long all they want ...
AT&T resents Google. No wonder Verizon jumped in bed with Google.
