Topic Wiki

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.

how can I regulate the number of times my phone rings before going to voicemail,

online all instructions talk about adjusting it through clicking on advanced settings but I have no such option?

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?

I am in middle of porting from Verizon Landline tp Page Plus, it's already 2 days and it didn't go through, and they said it might take another 3 days. Does that make sense.

It deff could be that long... but call them and try to convince them to do it for you on the spot (they need to call verizon landline to get the number released)... if they claim they can't huca...

I forwarded my GV number to my regular home phone landline. Any way for there to be a distinctive ring for the GV number?

Well if you choose in GV settings, that it should display your GV number as the caller ID for incoming calls, you might be able to set a different ringer in your home phone book settings

How do I find out which google voice number is linked to my cell phone?

I tried to link a google number to my cell phone and it said that my cell phone number was already claimed by another GV number!
I went into the gmail that I thought was linked to the cell and indeed, the GV number appears linked to the gmail account, but no forwarding cell number appears other than the GV number.
