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.

Some 347 # opened.

 Anyways to get a new number, and delete your existing one?
I think you can transfer your existing gv number to another account that doesn't have any number yet. Then you can request a new number on your main account.

You can use the google hangouts for calls once you link it to that google voice account

When i have a minute i can write a very clear easy to understand basic guide how to set up and use gv, but what you need to do is go to the settings in gv and change forward to phone,uncheck that option. Tell me if that works

You can technically place calls before connecting to gv, but all calls will be coming from private number, and no way to receive calls, i would assume he set up a gv account already.

Mine is also, but only sometimes... If I'm returning a call it's always free. If the number is in my contacts sometimes yes, sometimes not, but dialing a number not in your contacts is never free IME

With Google voice, hangouts dialer, and hangouts all installed you can make calls to the US for free and receive calls for free from the US and Canada, and can set up call forwarding if needed and text as well, you need to dial +1 before the 10 digit phone number.

There are ads on that app.  Hangouts doesn't have any ads. And if a person is in your contacts its usually free to call them
