Seems like they're not after followers on their Twitter account anymore. I tried to reapply today, opened their site and now they're asking for your phone number.

Has anyone tried it? Does it work?

    Google Voice can receive texts, or does it just direct it to your phone?

  • Thanks for the input guys. I read some posts here that they requested say, HK, but then they got their VKS on another location. Did it happen to you as well?

    Happened to me, but I read somewhere of someone who requested after me for HK and got HK. I got CA instead of HK, not sure what it'll be like now.

    Why don't you submit a ticket and ask them? :D But IMO, they won't let us renew because these are beta test VPS :(

  • which country you choose? When I want to use google voice, I didn't found America or United States in their list

  • also Dallas here, I was hoping to get EU (Frankfurt) to play with, so a little bit disappointed. :p

    What?

  • netomxnetomx Member

    You need to renew esch month, but it doesnt say something about price

    I have renewed mine for one more month today, without problems. But it seems there's no notification as time starts to run out, so you have to remember renewing if you still need it.

    I think that is the point, if you really use the box and have important things there it is likely you will remember. They need ppl that actively use them, otherwise they can make some containers and let them there, no need to put up with the hassle of giving away. M
