Grand central is a service that tries to give one-phone-number-for-life. I signed up only today and I love the features it provides.
This is how it works:
- Basically GC will give you a phone number (Actually you can chose from available numbers).
- You only give out the GC phone number to people.
- You can keep adding / deleting your other phone numbers to your GC account.
- In your GC account, you can select which calls should be routed where.
- The service also tries to save you from the telemarketers by blocking the known SPAM callers etc.
- Other good things include unlimited voicemail box, etc
GC was acquired by Google and the service is still in BETA. So you would need a invite to try it. If you have a Google blogger account you can get a GC account. If you don't have a Google blogger account but still want to tryout GC service, leave a comment with your mail id and I can send you a invite.
