you have probably heard about Google Voice and you were curious to test this new and exciting service. The first step is to get an invite.  After a while (more then a week) you'll get an email from Google saying that you were accepted to use Google Voice. There is also a notice to the bottom of the email saying:
Please note that Google Voice is only available for sign up in the US.
And, if you click on the activation link you get the following message:
google_voice_notavailable
This means that if you are leaving outside US you have to use a trick to activate your account.
Here are the steps necessary to activate your Google Voice account:
  1. Get a free USA incoming number as described here.
  2. Use HideIPVPN, Hotspot Shield, Ultrasurf or ibVPN to get a US IP address. Then delete your cookies and open the Google Voice invite activation link in your web-browser.
  3. Login using your Google account and you follow the first step to choose a number.
