Given Google’s deep integration with Sprint already, imagine if Google voice powers all the mobile voicemail systems. It becomes a slippery slope until all your communications are tracked by Google and (appropriate?) ads inserted anywhere. Could there be a free mobile service that will let you make and receive calls only after you listen to a 15 second audio ad? Or that you agree to SMS spam in exchange for free service?
