I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Having Trouble Setting up Google Voice with your Galaxy Nexus?

Scenario: Google calls you and asks you to verify your code when you are setting up the phone you are forwarding your Google Voice number to.

If it's a Galaxy Nexus, for some reason Google wouldn't recognize the tones when you push the keypad buttons on screen.

So, when the code is on screen that you are going to enter when Google calls, visit this website:

Example: 44 is my verification code. Enter '4  4' to generate that code. There are two spaces there for pauses.

Generate it and have it ready to play. When Google calls, hold your phone to the computer speaker and play the clip.

Yeah, it's a pain in the rump but you shouldn't have to do it much.
