i've had it since last week. i had my wife call me and had my cell phone and home phone assigned . . . they both rang. i answered with my cell and it stopped ringing on the home phone.
you can also press 4 during a call to record the conversation. this is nice if someone is giving you info (e.g., a phone number). something else i like is that when my wife and i finished, i could look up our conversation and see the date and time of the conversation. it had her name (since i had an extension address book already in Google for Gmail, i guess) and number and the length of our call.
i am going to start using this number full time when folks ask for it.
i like that you can choose the number you want. i think i spent 20 minutes finding one that would be easy to remember. i noticed that one prefix available in my area was 843. that spells THE. when i lived in Lawrence, Kansas i had a phone number that was 843-2378 -- THE-BEST. unfortunately, all 843 prefixes started the next for digits with a 1 and 1 doesn't have a letter assigned. so i picked something else. ah well.
