Any one else use google voice on an old 'smart phone'? (free phone service)

My Dh bought an old first generation iphone for $10 and got a google voice account and use the phone for free using a talkatone app. Granted it has it's draw backs... like the app must be open to receive calls but it is working great as a second phone for us! Anyone else do this or something similar?

  • Yes. You can get a phone number from google. If you have a gmail account you can get one.
