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.

Under settings you need to enable to receive calls and you also need to enable notifications under the notification settings in Android.

Is this free from GV or need to pay?

Yes free, make sure to forward all calls from the criket wireless to the Google Voice number.

 Go into the settings in the hangouts app and click allow incoming phone calls and set the notification type if you like.
 As well in the settings of the phone go to the hangouts app and make sure everything is enabled and allowed to be used, if one of the options are not checked and given the right permission then it won't ring on your S7 edge.

 Also make sure you have Google Voice, Hangouts dialer, and hangouts installed.

 And should you want to make phone calls from Israel to the USA/CANADA you need to hold down the 0 sign to add a + sign before the number, for ex. +1917-123-4455

 Hope it all works.
 Report back if it doesn't.

How do I setup GV to call forward to a USA Cricket Wireless  number to GV to actually  receive calls from the USA on my S7 Edge when I'm in Israel of-course as long as I'm on the Internet whether it is via WiFi or an Israeli sim card? not just leaving messages on GV.  willing to pay the google fee (sorry Google and searches on DDF is not my friend right now :-[ )
Very valid Question.
 Hope the answers you received work for you.
 If I get some free time I will try to put together a post explaining the steps and place in the wiki, maybe with some screen shots as well.

Is it possible to get a new number linked to your cell once you’ve already been assigned one?

Are you asking if you can change your Google voice number or if you can have 2 voice numbers linked to one real number?

You are able to change your number but I don't think can have 2 voice numbers linked to one real number.

You can change by transferring out your Google number (setting is in legacy view) to a new account that doesn't have any Google number. Then on 1st account request a new number.

so just to confirm, I can transfer my GV# from my first google account to a second google account, and then on the first google account I can request a new number? CMIIW

(its really moot at this point b/c I already paid the $10 fee, but I guess just for future reference)
