You've done an excellent job of explaining the differences between Google voicemail and texting versus traditional carrier provided services. I still don't understand how the advantages of Google services make carrier services "garbage" by comparison...less advanced, perhaps, but hardly rubbish.

The big advantage carrier based messaging has over Google is it's usually included in basic wireless packages at no additional charge. While Google Voice itself is free, the costly data plans needed to support it are not.

There are still plenty of folks like me who are uninterested in phone Internet plans. Google voice wouldn't benefit me one bit.
