You can now port your cell phone number to Google for a $20 one time fee:

Unfortunately, you cannot port land lines yet which is what I was really looking for.

Has anyone tried this yet? (they had a beta porting period for the past few months that allowed some accounts to port for free).

Porting landline to mobile first is a really great idea. I did a bit more research on this and found that only certain mobile carriers are supported at this time:

"We currently only support Alltel, ATT, Sprint, T-Mobile & Verizon"

Assuming prepaid for one of the above, it sure sounds like it should work.

What are the advantages to porting your cell number to Google Voice?
That renders your cell phone useless anyway, right?
