Invitations to GrandCentral

[UPDATE: I've given out the invites I could so this offer no longer stands.]

If you’d like an invitation to GrandCentral, let me know. It assumes you’re okay with giving Google your phone number, which is a big if. But if you are then let me know. I have a few to give out, not a lot though so first come first served.

Oh, what is GrandCentral? It’s a service that let’s you give out a phone number that you can then control much better than your direct numbers by filtering and selectively forwarding based on the caller. It’s similar to creating filters for various emails depending on sender.

I’ve used a similar service before for a research project and it worked well. GrandCentral was recently acquired by Google and they’re presumably revamping it a bit. There are, however, other such services out there if you prefer a site that is, for now, independent.

UPDATE: I will only send invites to people who send me an email from an address that has both last name and first name and preferably some Web site. You know my name, you know info about me and what I’m offering here would link us in the eyes of Google. I won’t do that if I have nothing to go on.

    It sounds interesting but I bet it only works with US numbers at the moment (though of course it doesn’t say anything about that on the “about this app” screens!) I hate it when developers produce something for one country and ignore the possibility that other countries’ net users might want to use it!

    David, indeed, I read on the site yesterday that they only support phone numbers in the US for now (and none in Alaska, Hawaii, and Maine). I can’t find this info now so yes, it seems it’s not placed anywhere prominently.
