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.

Do I need a computer to set up gv or can I do it from a phone?
From the latest Google Voice Android update (I've got it today) you can sign up using the mobile app

You can only have one GV # forwarded to your number. When trying to verify it should give you the option to forward the new # and drop the previous one

Did you check your CC account? What happens when you call the CC number directly?

Use a Spoofcard, same as with a regular phone.
Or just make a new account with a number you don't care about.

You might have to call T-Mobile and have them unlock the number so it could be ported.

HUKA as most reps should know what it means unlock/release a number in a port request

Called multiple times and they either don't know what i'm talking about or they say T-mobile does not lock numbers...

Trying to set up a new google voice account... I put in a phone number to verify, typed in the code, and for some reason verification did not complete. Now I'm trying again and it won't take that phone number :(.

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