Just log into your account and the upgrade option should be at the top of your inbox page. I'm liking it so far.

So, how is this working for you guys so far? Do you like it? It sounds like it is going to be very useful.
There is a freeze on new accounts at the moment. I'm not sure when they are lifting that and allowing new accounts. I have an account but I still don't have the upgrade option

Great, now they can start storing records of everyones conversations along w/ their searches and email....
can someone please explain exactly what this is

Do I get a phone number from Google that I can call people at and they can leave voicemails?
does anyone have an invite for this. I literally don't even have a cell phone or a lan line so I have to communicate with text messages on GMAIL lol
Awesome. I never listen to my voice messages because of how long it takes for the damn automated voice to let you press "play the message already!"

It literally takes like 2 minutes... and you can't go do something else, because it hangs up on you if you wait more than 10 seconds

What did yahoo! do for email? I actually don't know, not trying to imply they haven't.
