Grand Central

For those of you that have been scouring the planet for a Grandcentral invite, look no further. For now (and who knows how much longer) you can sign up for your very own Grandcentral account with no strings attached - and no invite required. Head over to http://www.grandcentral.com/home/blogger_invite before it's too late.

I'm not sure where this popped up from (it looks like our bud Ronen at BerryReview was first to post it!), but I do know that if you don't have a Grandcentral account you really need to get one. For those of you that don't know anything about GC - essentially it gives you a phone number of your choosing (from a list in your area that GC offers) and it's yours for life. Any calls to that number will forward wherever you'd like - cell, work, home etc. You can setup spam filters for those evil telemarketers, address groups that will forward to a specified location, switch phones mid call, listen to voicemail online and even save your messages for eternity (so they say).  The options are immense. Long story short - sign up first so you don't miss your chance, and read about it later.  This is one freebie you don't want to miss.

www.grandcentral.com/mobile is the correct website you need to put in your Blackberry device to access your address book.

I got my GC number yesterday and am pretty impressed with how it works with the exception of no text messaging capability. I think Ill use GC more for work contacts so I can receive calls on my BB, but wont totally convert until SMS is available. There is a lot of overall potential with GC though.

GC has an incredible potential for growth. I'm just worried that they will start charging eventually, and by that time we'll all be too hooked on it... Before I have all my friends change my phone number in their phones, I think I'm going to wait and see..

I was fortunate to learn about Grand Central about 3 months ago. Getting an invite was a little bit difficult but I eventually got one. How can Grand Central work in other carriers for free?

The one bad comment I have about Grand Central is that when I use it for long conference calls, which need a passcode to access, there is a little discrepancy between the internet and the call. For example, if the passcode is 596444, it will read in the end.... 5559996444444444. A little frustrating. Also, telephone numbers which have extension numbers have some trouble.
