How can I transfer my Verizon number to google voice number ?
Transfer as in forwarding or port?

Has anyone had any success in using an mp3 for the Google Voice greeting? I used to be able to do this in Windows with a program that would reroute the sound that would come out of the speakers as a virtual microphone and have Google Voice call my hangouts number to record the greeting, but now they got rid of using the hangouts number to record greetings.
Any suggestions?
call your google voice number through gmail website in the side bar from there you have the call placed directly on your computer and can use the program to play in the mp3 recording for your voicemail greeting.

I have a Verizon number, I'm thinking of closing that line, I just don't want to loose my number, what's my best option to save my number ?

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

How can I do it ?

Does it cost money to port a number ?

Can I do it outside the USA ?

Sorry, you're right. It's in the wiki in the Obi thread. I'm in mobile now, so I can't find it.

The front door callbox for my building requires me to program my apt buzzer to a local area code. Being that we only have cellphones in my house, we've been using my cell phone to answer the callbox, setting up a GV number with a local area code and forwarded the GV number to my cellphone and thats how i would be able to answer my front door. This has worked quite nicely for the past 3 years. Two weeks ago it just stopped working. I tried called the GV number directly from a diff phone (my personal cell phone should ring) but after a few rings it just goes straight to voicemail.

Does anybody know whats going on? Was the GV number somehow disconnected? Please help. Thanks!!

Try removing your cell phone and re-adding it.
