Invitation to GrandCentral

So after a very long wait, I received my invitation to GrandCentral back in the fall. The service is still in closed beta. GrandCentral, now owned by Google, is a service that gives you a single phone number which rings a collection of other numbers that you define for schedules, people, groups and such. I’ve played with other versions of this kind of service and was always less than impressed by the features. GrandCentral really raises the bar. One feature allows you to transfer a call from your office phone to your cell phone without the person on the other end of the call noticing anything, which is very slick. I’ll have a complete review of GrandCentral once I get a chance to really put it through its paces.

  1. My only phone number is a mobile phone number, and apparently whoever had my number before me had very bad credit and a habit of giving the number to everyone and everything. Although I remind unwanted callers that I’m on the national “Do Not Call” registry, they insist that if a number has done business with them in the past, they’re entitled to call it. When I read the descriptions of the screening and blocking features available through GrandCentral, I got very excited until I found out that I have to have an invitation from a current user. Can you please help me out?

  3. Can You please send me an invite? My email is […]. I would like to use it while I do my tour of duty to keep in touch with family and friends while in Iraq. Thanks!. I have been looking for awhile and I am due to deploy in a couple of weeks.

  5. I wish that I could help you out. Apparently, everyone’s invitations have been turned off for GrandCentral.

    There is a post in the Google Groups about it here.

    You may just want to go to the homepage of GrandCentral and reserve a number.

    You may want to try a SkypeIn number, this way your friends can still make a local call and I believe that you can have it forward to your phone or to voicemail.

  7. I am currently looking for an invite to grand central. The reason for this is due to all the dogs who are homeless or are getting put down. We work with many rescue groups. We also hold and help with lots of fundraisers to help the hounds. 100% of all funds raised goes to get dogs off death row. We as a group feel that this software with grand central will help bring in more calls to help.

    PLEASE HELP WITH INVITE
