Google Voice… Invited but not available!

Just got a alert in Gmail “You’ve been invited to Google Voice” and I thought the policy had changed to allow registrations outside of US. Unfortunately scrolling down further stating its only available for sign up in the US.

If you haven’t already heard about it, Google Voice is a service that makes using your current phones much better!
Here’s what it offers:

  • A personal phone number that rings all of your existing phones when people call
  • All of your voicemail in one inbox with unlimited online storage and free voicemail transcripts sent to your phone and email
  • Low-priced international calling to over 200 countries and free SMS
  • Other powerful features like the first phone spam filter to protect you from unwanted callers, the ability to ListenInTM on your voicemail messages while they are being left, conference calling and more

Tried my luck anyway and got this :

Google Voice is not available in your country.
Thanks for visiting Google Voice. We’re not yet open for users outside the US, but are planning to expand our service to additional countries in the future.

I do wonder with e-mail, browsing habits and now voice (leading to Android platform), will Google hold too much information on a person’s habits?
