Can I use Google Voice for voicemail without a real phone number?

Another ditch-the-cell-phone-bill/Google Voice question: Google Voice made me give them my cell phone number (800-OLD-CELL) when I signed up, and then assigned me a new number (800-GGL-VOIC). However, I don't have calls forwarded from the Google Voice number to my actual cell phone - Instead, everything goes to voicemail. What happens if I cancel my old cell phone number? [more inside]

I'm looking for a device or setup that will allow me to record calls on a cell phone (preferably using the 2.5" headset jack).

Is there a cheap way to use data on my iPhone in Spain?

I'm going to Spain for a bit and want, if possible, to get a pay-as-you-go Spainish sim card for my (unlocked) iPhone that will allow me to use data at a reasonable price. Does anyone know if such a product exists in Spain? I don't speak Spanish so bonus points if it's possible to buy one over the internet and have it shipped to me in the UK (though I know that's unlikely)... [more inside]

Want to buy/send a cell phone US to EU

A friend lost her phone (ordinary cell, not smart) in Europe (Greece) and is distraught (has no money to speak of). I told her I'd send her one of my old ones, but the chances of getting it to work there (and finding charger) are slim, I suppose. I want to buy a new one and just send over and not worry. However, I don't want her to know it's "new." She'd freak. So. What's the easiest, not terribly expensive, non U.S.-centric option? Any other insight greatly appreciated. (I'm obviously not cell phone-savvy and yes, I googled, but got flummoxed). many thanks.

Cellphone to laptop?

My lady has AT&T cellular with internet capability. She also has a very nice laptop, thanks to me. She live in remote Idaho and has no internet options other than dialup. Can she use her phone to power her laptop? I'm good with computers but know nothing about cellphones. Can this be done? What connectors, etc might she need? Basic, decent speed web access would be all she needs. As she has nothing now to her laptop, I don't think that download limits would be a problem. Just typical surfing with video and audio. Can she port the phone access to a wireless connection to her laptop? If you come up with a reasonable solution, I will probably get laid. Hah! No, I actually just love her and would like to expand her world.

Carrying a kid and an iPhone sover hardwood floors is a bad idea, because you never know when you might have to choose which one to drop

My iPhone has a cracked LCD, and I'm considering sending it to Mission repair, who I found via this ask. Does anyone else have any experiences with them to share before I send away my phone? Are there any steps I should take to make data safe, or am I just being paranoid there? Are there any alternatives I should consider in the Seattle area? Note that the phone is not under warranty.

Did I mess up my phone's reception?

Could I have messed up my cellphone's reception when I replaced its casing? I recently replaced the casing on my phone: taking my phone apart, unscrewing lots of things, then putting the phone into a new case. I just followed online instructions; I don't have a lot of experience with these sorts of things. I can't remember when it started, but my phone seems to say "Emergency Calls Only" or "No Carrier" quite regularly now, and I never noticed it doing this in the past. Is there something I can do to fix it? [more inside]
