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.

I'm assuming you mean there's no option for it?  Because we have a report that it does work from Israel.
When you signed up for Gmail did you choose Canada or US?
