    They can't do that, you can't get it, and it will be used for everything.

    I use grandcentral. They don't offer invites right now. You can sign up at grandcentral.com to be notified when they expand their beta. To my knowledge, there is no iphone app and i can't imagine what one would do.

    They've also discontinued some of their services, but I can't get back into that part of the website.

    Actually, there is an app. It allows you to call someone from your iPhone and have your Grand Central number to show up as your caller ID.

    Thanks for the replies.

    The new app is called GrandDialer. I dont have an account, but I am kind of confused on exactly how it would work. What is the deal with the "in app" phone keypad? Does it use the regular line or does it use VoIP or something? I am aware of all the features but I wasn't able to understand how the service works by the info on their website.

    Interesting. I had no idea. I would note that the app is not made by google (who now own grandcentral) but that's neither here nor there. In any event, I have no use for this app as I only give out my grandcentral number to people that I might wish to screen (that would change if they ever added numbers in the 917 or 212 area codes). I'm sure others use it more extensively so this app would have more functionality.

    I have this application and have used it a few times for work reasons. It is very simple and pretty much is the same functionality as the feature you use on the GC web interface to call someone and then pick which number it dials to connect the call. For a basic functionality its not bad since you can use your iPhone's contact list for calling out on or dial on the pad.

    I've been using Grand Central for around 6 months now. I love it. It's been very useful to me for various reasons.

    GrandDialer looks like a good app- basically, when you call someone through the App's dial pad, your grandcentral number shows up on their caller ID. Good idea.

    The App description states that this wasn't designed by Google of Grandcentral.

    Too funny Skil...

    I've signed up and they said they would contact me regarding registration and a new number. Sounds pretty interesting, but another phone number for the 415 area code; uhh, hello we are running out of phone numbers...

    Did you just sign up now? I know people that signed up a couple months ago and they still haven't received their account yet. Don't hold your breath is all I'm saying.

    Back when I signed up in December, I received an account instantly.

    I just signed up for the "reserve number" and they said they would email me additional information. I put in San Francisco (415) as my area code and that's about it. I think the wait is going to be a really long time...:(

    Security of Granddialer

    I was a bit concerned about the security of this software because I received my first Grand Central spam call shortly after using this application. I emailed the software developer and they were quick to respond and emphatically denied that they collect any user information and provided me with the following explaination:

    It seems like a great application so I will give them the benefit of the doubt and chalk this up to a coincidence.
