When you went to dial, a popup appeared asking if you wanted to dial from your phone number of your Google Voice number. It often locked the 8330.
    This may be a dumb question, but what is Grand Central and how do you become a member? Or is it a member type thing?

    GrandCentral was the name of the product before Google bought the company. You get a single phone number that when it is called it will ring all the phones attached to your account at the same time (home, cell, office, etc). It also has voicemail, web interface, out calls that originate from the web, and a few other tools/toys. The beta is not open yet but from what I've seen, it should open soon.

    Ohh. Now I get it. I understood what Google Voice was, just didn't put the two together. Sorry, was a duh moment, I guess. Thank you for clarifying for me though.

    Yeah, most of Google's products are good. I hope they release it soon, it looks promising, especially i heard that google voice has voicemail to text for free. Can anybody with an account already, confirm the voicemail to text?

    It's not perfect. The voicemail I left read:

    "test test 1 2 3"

    Close enough though. Screenshot from Google Voice attached.

    Ok. Theattachment doesn't appear to work so hopefully this will.

    Thats pretty bad if it can't translate a simple sentence like Test 123 lol. Looks like it might need some more work.
