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.

 Does anyone know how to disconnect a caller after making a 3-way using Google Voice for me it seems the only way to end the call is to hang up from all the people you're on the call with and call back whomever you need, doesn't seem there's a way to just hang up one of the participants?

In the Hangouts settings is the box that says incoming calls checked?

Google voice will end partnership with Sprint service
This change affects any Sprint customers who use their Sprint number as their Google Voice number, or any Google Voice users who use their Google Voice number on their Sprint phone through Sprintís built-in Google Voice integration features.

yes. Just set it up at Google voice on a computer
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

They still require a forwarding phone number.

But you don't need to ave it actively forwarding to that number.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Which ever way you get a gv number you will need to activate it at least once by using another number.

Under settings there's an option calls and then an option incoming calls, deselect the option to ring on your device.
