It may be awhile I signed up for mine months ago. But the good thing is that they are sending them out so that means things are starting to move and I'm sure ooma won't be far behind.

Actually, I think it is random. I signed up at least 3-4 months ago and have not gotten an invite. However, a guy I work with signed up about a week ago and got an invite the next day. I can only guess they are randomly drawing people out of their pool.

A lot depends on how active you are with google - for example using gmail, etc.

I don't think so. I use gmail a lot and signed for the invite a couple of months ago. Still nothing.

Yeah, same here. Had google mail since day one. Still no invite. But the wait will be worth it.

Just got my invite, signed up, works. I'll pass this number to people I really do not want to have my home number. I had signed up months ago, I do not use any Google stuff much.

I waited about 6 months
I heard about GV back then but they were not creating new accounts at the time.
I got my invitation and signed up about 2 weeks ago

I don't think so. I got into gmail early on when it was very difficult to get invites & use as my primary email. I also use google docs and google reader daily. I think they just dumped everyone's name in a big pool and randomly pick a few out every day or two.

From what my friend, who go got an invite within 24 hours from signing up, it's not that big of a deal right now since they don't have any local numbers for us. They have our area code, but not local.
