Anyone familiar with Google Voice capabilities?
I'm trying to set up a second phone number at my home as I only have a cell phone, mostly to give to companies and such. I would really like to have a cordless home phone that would ring when my Google Voice phone number is called, as opposed to something I need to actually be sitting at the computer to use.
I have a HTPC that's pretty much always on and I figure I could use that as the internet connection to Google Voice, but I'm pretty foggy on how (if) I could hook a home phone (standard RJ11) to my computer. I think the main thing I'm missing here is a Spigate like service that offers free virtual phone numbers, right?
I know Google Voice has an Android app, but I would love to set it up so the Google Voice number won't tie up my cell's line. I assume I'll need some adapter or additional hardware, but not too sure on what exactly. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
