Google Voice is sucking

Google Voice Goes Down Yet Again, according to TechCrunch. I used to be a Google Voice fan and even waxed enthusiastic over it in a previous post. All over the blogosphere there is rejoicing because Apple has finally allowed an official Google Voice app into the App Store. My enthusiasm dwindled a few weeks ago when I got 10 e-mails from my financial planner, who was unable to reach me by phone on account of she got a message saying the number was unavailable.

It dwindled further when I looked on the Google support forums and found out this is widespread.

I NEED MY PHONE TO WORK. I use an iPhone, so it's unreliable enough as it is. Google Voice has failed enough that I'm just not using it anymore.
