Google Voice Gets Integrated with Sprint

Sprint today becomes the first U.S. national carrier to integrate Google Voice services across its handset line-up. The network operators customers can opt to replace their Sprint phone number with one from Google Voice or if they already have a number with Google, can configure their handset to display that number for outgoing calls and text messages. This optional Google service will be available not only on smartphones, where it is commonly used today, but also on Sprint’s feature phones, as it gradually rolls out.

With full Google Voice integration on all Sprint phones, feature phone users gain the same features that smartphone owners have enjoyed for the past few years. Not every low-end handset has an email client, but they all have text messaging support, so transcribed voicemails can still be routed directly to the phone.( source : Gigacom)
