All I got was calls in areas that I would have never serviced like north tulsa, I'm a good 45 min drive away from there. They got a lot of kinks to work out before I turn it back on. I did like how you don't have to have a contract, you can change your budget anytime and turn it off at anytime. To me, I'm too small a company to deal with it. Probably 1 out of 6 calls was a job, but to get that one job you had to paid 20 bucks a call.....not worth it to me.
Nobody wants to service north Tulsa, ergo you get someone (Google) trying to find someone to go there.

In Washington State the law says you cannot record a phone conversation without notifying the other party that the call is being recorded. I am sure Google makes an announcement before connecting the call. We have not had any issues the call recording by Google. Also, unlike the Tulsa person we have not had out of area problems. Google lets you define a service area which is what we do for our Sewer repair service.
