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.

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

When porting out, all you need is your T-Mobile account pin, and then provide it to your new cell phone provider, and they port the number for you.

is there a way to spoof a caler ID when calling out with a google number? I dont want the google number to be displayd.

I am using Google numbers with my asterisk switch and found that you cannot spoof your caller ID.

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

Spoofcard is extremely overpriced. One can easily setup FreePBX, get a sip trunk, and change their caller id, and make calls for a penny a minute.

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?
Did you type in just 6 numbers? Without the G

Im trying to port my (Tmobile prepaid) number to Google Voice but after submitting i got a error asking for a pin and the last  last 4 of my SS after i provided it (i just used my pin also for my ss -as prepaid accounts Don't need any...) i'm still getting this error "Sorry. Your mobile number can not be ported at this time." Anyone know how to get my number ported? Or do i just wait and try again later?
From my experience, just cancel the existing portage, and create a new one

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

Maybe try verification thru a voice call. You'll need to dial in 2 digits they'll provide you. You need to do it on their older site.

That's a bit complicated for the average user. It's much easier to just make a new GV account.

In the slide out menu on the left, there's an option for the legacy site.

It did not work, i chose a phone number from the list they offered me and it gave me an error. It didn't even let me put in my phone # to verify.
