Google naturally believes the features of Voice, including the integration of Voice with email, free text messages and the ability to read voicemail in a transcript form are ideal for students and their lifestyle. Of course, this claim isn't off base but I think those features are useful for anyone, which is why we find the service compelling overall.
Now when a student signs up for Google Voice with an .edu email address, he or she will be given priority over other applicants for the service. There's even a special page for students to sign up for Voice. Apparently any student who applies will automatically receive an invite within 24 hours. Maybe I should have kept that old college account active after all.
