Google Voice may save a number as a home number, and in that mode it will not allow you to forward messages. In order to change that there's an option in legacy site.

Any way to get incoming GV calls via WiFi on iPhone?

Yes
Is there any other plan that doesn't require a $10 load

Any dealer can do it but it never look good (for the dealer) to do a port without putting on a plan. Most companies pay a small fee to the big ones (the big 4) so its not realy fair to do such a thing

I know it can be done in settings. My question was if forwarding to cell phone needs to be switched off for hangouts to ring on iPhone.

When setting up a Google voice account should I create a new Gmail account or attach it to my main gmail account

On Android you need to enable it from the Hangouts app settings too.

It's enabled in my iPhone hangouts app, but still doesn't ring.
