    Default Statement from Apple

    Not sure if this is new or not but it was certainly new to me. Apple Answers the FCC’s Questions

    Answers a lot of questions regarding Google Voice, then gives the usual answers that you would expect regarding the approval process for all applications.

    and now Google has made another reply by publishing their confidential letter to FCC. You can check myIphoneNewz dot com to get the link.

    (Somehow I am not able to post a link yet)

    you can read it here also instead of your site haha
    The site you suggested is using a free blog php script and has only 4 news articles for the whole month so far... They are averaging almost 1 article every 5 days... Why would I or anyone get my news from there... Mr. Newz, did a 5 yearold come up with that?

    http://www.theiphoneblog.com/2009/09...-google-voice/

    and apples response below, no need to leave this site for the same article

    I have read both the Apple and Google response and this soo feels like he said - she said. I'm thinking that this may have something to do with the fact that Apple has now identified google as a competitor instead of a partner.

    Apple is lying through it's lawyers' teeth. I think if they hadn't denied the app and were still discussing it with Google, then Google would know it. Apple is back-peddling and while other apps get either accepted or denied in a couple of weeks, this app will still be "being considered" well into the next iPhone iteration.
