Google today announced that all users of Google Voice will be able to port their existing wireless number from their carrier to Google Voice. The process costs $20 and takes about 24 hours to complete. Google reminds Google Voice users interested in porting their number that doing so will cancel their existing wireless contract, which may leave users responsible for early termination fees. Number porting will be available to new users in a few weeks.

Apple AirPods Pro are the company's new premium true wireless earbuds, adding active noise cancellation (ANC) to silence background noise. 200 times a second, the H1 chip uses an outer microphone to detect outside noise and generate a counter-sound.
While policies can vary, generally it's like pulling teeth getting smaller prepaid carriers to release your number quickly, and with some (Tracfone) it's almost not even worth it.
This way, you use your Google Voice number, so if you decide to switch carriers, you don't have to worry about porting, you just change stuff from google's website.
And if you have a smartphone, this basically means you have unlimited SMS (no MMS yet), which can save you up to $20 a month.
