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.
Use a different area code?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Port from an existing number you have (cell, home, etc.)?

I know what # I need either an 848 or 732 #, but none of them are available. I can't get another area code, since then I will be charged long distance every time I use it.

What decides if its long distance is actually the first 6 digits, so in lakewood not every 732 number will be local.

I set up a google voice number a while ago (actually, ported in a number) and now i'm having trouble accessing the voice mail.

The problem is, I have no idea what the email address is that's associated with it  :-\

Is there any way to figure that out?

Thanx, but didn't help

After entering the gv number, it sent an email to the email address associated with the number with recovery information.

My issue is that I dont know what that address is!

You made a new email? Thats why I have all my emails either forwarding to each other, or in thunderbird so I can check them all at once.

Yes. It has its own dedicated email, and I have no idea what it is.

they claim to reload numbers periodically. Alternatively you can port out a local # if you already have one then get a new one to replace (but make sure verizon won't throw on new fees to activate...) , or if you don't have a local # yet open one up with verizon and then port out, but watch out for fees ....
- btw i thought the changes to gv should have no effect on using it this way, just for those using it strictly thru their internet

login into your account and disable call screening that'll solve your first problem
Also you can undo the link, no need to delete any account
