    What is the point of google voice exactly?

    how does it work?

    Can u actually use that number to make calls and not get charged on your minutes?

    also is there a monthly charge for the service?

    kind of confused as to what the purpose is and how it works?

    No. Your minutes are still used.

    No. Unless you put a price on Google having all of your call/SMS data.

    It's a web-based PBX. You can forward calls from your GV number to another number to protect your "private" number. You can block certain callers from calling you based on predefined rules. You can send SMS messages through GV over your data plan instead of your texting plan (for example, I don't have a texting plan anymore because I barely use data). These are just a few examples of how GV can work for you.

    I basically use Google Voice for:

    1. unlimited text. save me from paying AT&T 20$ a month
    2. web-based voice mail
    3. give out my GV number instead of my home & cell phone numbers
