Or if you have t-mobile use T-mobile digits and you can avoid the whole google voice saga!
 Just make sure to use data only verses cellular mode.

Or with Verizon use Message+ and enable voice calls.

 c)Now on the "Google Voice" App there will be an option which says devices and numbers, that's where your number will ring when someone calls, whether it being a desktop or your phone or phones.
   As well make sure the settings "making and receiving calls" is set to prefer wifi and mobile data Vs use carrier Only.

Oh you mean wifi and mobile data.
 Will need to remove the Hangouts dialer app and see what happens.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

So the answer is no?
Will test the new theory of only needing  one of the Hangouts and report back.
 Best if someone from abroad does the test, vs myself who's in America now.
 Things work differently when abroad.

 To make it easy to understand, you would need to pay for a sim card 19₪ phone plan 29₪ and to activate the line another 29₪ or so, don't remember off hand.
 I've used golan and hot mobile.
 And remember you'll be busy activating the lines, and you need to close the lines, no big deal but just something to keep in mind.
 Vs renting from the people on the forum or wherever, you'll have service when you land and not to worry about activating and closing the lines on your vocation ,or after your vocation.
 But very doable if you want to do it on your own..

 
You can get prepaid plans on all major ideally carriers for pennys.

Correct. They usually last longer than a month.

Where they sell such plans? And I'm assuming no need for a passport and license...

I think any cell phone store. They call them "talkman".
They don't go by month. You refill when you use it up. Like the old fashioned prepaid.
