By the way, I don't have call screening on, and my GV voicemail picks up my calls (forwards to cell and office at the same time).

It worked fine for over a year, and recently my cell phone VM was picking up too fast.  I called VZW tech support -- and they lengthened the delay that it takes for the VZW VM to pick up, so that it always gets picked up by GV.  Unless you call my cell directly, in which case VZW VM picks up.

Why not just change your VZW VM number to GV?

BC I have two GV accounts, and my cell phone number is listed as an office phone on both GV lines -- landlines can be shared across two GV accounts, but cell phones can't.  One of my GV lines is a local area code, the other in another state where my company is located

I've been unable to place any calls on my phone, using Google Voice.
Every time I try to place a call I get a message "we could not complete your call, please try again!"

Anyone knows what may be causing this?

I tried "force stop," didn't help.

I thought maybe the problem is with my phone, so I made the call from Google.com/Voice on my PC, and it also didn't go through.

Anyone encounter this before?   Any solutions?

When you call GV does the VM pick up?  If it does, can you make an outgoing call from there?

As of the last time I looked into it (a few months ago), no.

Yes, yes.
So it is not a GV problem, it is a internet / ports problem.  I may have missed it upthread, but how are you using your GV?

Via the official GV app.

How can it be an internet problem, if it's not limited to one single WiFi connection?

I misread your OP.  I did not realize you are using an app.  This is an obvious step, but did you try removing and reinstalling the app?

I'm trying to set up a Google Voice in Lakewood NJ so that I should be able to make free long distance (yes I know it might only last for another few months). Well Google Voice has no local numbers available for Lakewood NJ (848 or 732) any ideas how to get one.
