Board, I received this automated message about our GoogleVoice phone
number (which could still be pointed to in our docs), and have just
logged in, so we will keep the number.
Note that I believe the last Board decided to remove this number from
our docs...but I spent 10 minutes to keep it anyway. Can't hurt.
Background: phoning this number and leaving a voice message
automatically sends an email to a few of us (me at least) with text of
the message and an audio link.

We noticed that you haven’t used your Google Voice number in a while.
Because phone numbers are a limited resource, it is our policy to
reclaim unused numbers so they can be made available to new users.
If you’d like to keep your Google Voice number (801) 896-7436, you will
need to make calls or send text messages by October 6, 2013 by logging
in <https://www.google.com/voice/> to your account or using one of our
mobile apps <http://www.google.com/mobile/voice/>.
If you have been reluctant to use your Google Voice number because you
didn’t want to change your phone number, you may be interested to know
that we recently launched the ability to port your existing mobile phone
to Google Voice. This means that you can take advantage of all of Google
Voice’s features, like one number that rings all of your phones, free
text messages, and voicemail transcription -- without having to get a
new phone number.
To check if your number can be ported to Google Voice, click here.
Better yet, we have also integrated Google Voice with Sprint
so you can use your Sprint phone as your Google Voice number, have it
ring other phones and/or Gmail simultaneously, get online voicemail with
transcripts and more. To learn more, click here
Please remember that your current number will be reclaimed in 30 days
unless you start using it. If the number is reclaimed, your existing
messages will remain available in your account, but you will no longer
be able to receive calls or text messages.
