Google saved my number
By Dave Winer on Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 4:51 PM.

I was writing this post when news of their API came in. #

A picture named mabelllogo.gifPostscript to yesterday's piece about Verizon and my Droid. I bit the bullet and ported the number to Google Voice. A little less than 24 hours later the porting is done, the Verizon account is closed, and the number maps to Google Voice, and through that to a contractless account with T-Mobile that's running on my Samsung Nexus S that I bought in April for my trip to Amsterdam. Whew! #

It worked and I still have the old number. So everyone is happy, except maybe Ma Bell's nasty bitch of a grand-daughter, Verizon. Yeah, actually I think they like it when customers walk. Anyway... #
