You can get a free phone number for personal or business use through Google Voice, which is not yet fully operational. But the question is how to get a free phone number?
You needed an invitation from Google or a user who already uses the service. Google Voice is a service that can direct calls from the Google Voice phone number to your cell phone or private individual as well as connect calls between two or more numbers. It is available only to US residents who have a Google account.
Here is 11 step how to get a free phone number
From the Google Voice settings page, click the blue button that says “Choose a number”, which is located inside the “Get a new Google number” box.
