The folks over at TheAppleBlog have posted a couple of tips to make your user experience easier for those of you who have a Google Voice Account.

Its a little cumbersome and takes time, but with this little tidbit you get the same functinality, no application to install, you have a bit of setup, but works flawlessly. The best part is, when the call is received, they will see your Google number instead of the number of your device!
