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.

After you buy a number (or after several days, depending what it says when it'll be available) you'll see under this number in account details the info to use for porting out.
I see the porting info in numberbarn, but when I put the # into google voice, it tells me:
"Ooops! We currently don't support porting from your carrier. We apologize and are working on adding support for more carriers."
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Then you'd need to do the cellphone SIM workaround. As detailed in the wiki.

GV stopped working for my mother on her iPhone a while back. I can't seem to find a fix. It works for incoming calls but she can't make calls out internationally or domestic. Any ideas?

assuming she's paying to make domestic and international calls?
 Unless she's calling from a u.s. number to another u.s number?
  Make sure that the Google Voice number is attached correctly and it's verified sometimes has to be Reverifeid for it to work and be able to make outgoing calls.
   Or try deleting the app and reinstalling it, also in the settings make sure it's set that you allow Google Hangouts to make phone calls.

 Good luck.

Tried to detach it and verify the number again. Tried reinstalling.

Shes's using Google Voice. Not Hangouts.
It says the number can't be completed at this time.

 If you still can't get it to work just download hangouts(hangouts dialer) and connect the two by logging into the same email, as you would be able to place out going calls hopefully.
 Just remember to add the +1 to which ever number your calling if it's abroad to another US number.

It did work in the past. And I've done a bunch of research online and all I can guess is that the update ruined things for a lot of people and they just never fixed it.

The issue with Hangouts (and CMIIW) is that it makes the calls over wifi/data where as GV makes the calls using the service provider. And I prefer it that way. She is currently using Skype for international calls but it too makes calls over the internet and isn't always great.

I did not know that but I can try right now for you and tell you if that's true, I will turn off my data and see if Google Voice works.

GV may still need data to actual work but it def doesn't call over the internet. The question is if it does via Hangouts which I believe it does.

It needs data like you said but shows it won't work unless I have data.

I don't mind it needing data. I just don't want the actual call to be over data.   I've been searching for weeks on and off. If anyone at all has any fixes I'd be very appreciative.

Or does anyone have acess to an older version that I could try downloading ?

I guess I'm not. I use an Android device. While it seems like it is possible on an Apple device it's way too complicated for me.

Any other thoughts ?
