Google Allowing Voice Users to Reclaim Old Numbers
Google recently announced that users of its Google Voice service can retrieve their old Google Voice number. This applies to users who have changed their original Google Voice number to a new one, or ported in an existing number over their original Google Voice number (including Sprint customers). Google says this way Voice users will receive calls and texts made to their old number. Google is charging $20 to make access to the old Google Voice number permanent. In effect, it will let users keep two Google Voice numbers, though all calls made by the user will be connected through their current/new numbers.
