It says it's for US based users, so change your address to the US if you're not based here.

I guess no more gizmo (as long as this is free, although I get the feeling that if this changes, Gvoice will change as well).

And btw you do not need a google voice number to be able to use this service, although if you do, you will be able to receive incoming calls.
