Oh, Google Voice, I wish I could quit you

Goodbye, Google Voice: I'm breaking up with you.

Thinking about doing this myself. GV seems to be abandonware, it’s flaky, and there’s no longer need for it now that my mobile is my only phone.

Indeed, what I really need is the opposite of what Google Voice provides: One number for friends and family, another for work, and a third for potential spammers who nonetheless have legitimate need for my phone number, like airlines.

Too many people have my Google Voice number for me to dump it, but it’s become a pain in the neck. I’d hoped for an upgrade at the I/O conference, but that didn’t happen.
