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.

Yep.. it actually happened to me while typing an intense email on my iPad and all of a sudden the screen turned into a full blown iOS incoming call screen.. i wasn’t in front of a mirror, but I’m pretty sure that my facial expression at that moment would’ve become the internets standard “WTF??” meme.. I wasn’t as surprised in a long time.. but yes, you can receive incoming calls on your iPad with google voice!

Does anyone know if you can have Google Voice forward to 2 different numbers at the same time? I somehow doubt it but I figured I'd ask

Of course you can. That was one of the very original primary features of Google Voice.

Thanks. With more and more googling I am seeing that. Trying to work it out. Thanks again!

That's nice? Glad to hear you figured that out.

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Texts from one specific sender to my GV number have not been forwarding to my email since January. All other senders work fine. Any idea how to debug this? When I visit voice.google.com they show up, but not in my email account.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Check spam. The issue may be on your email provider side.

If that being true, why only one sender?

Good one! I searched and found them in Spam. Marked them as 'not spam' and hopefully that'll fix it going forward.
Thanks for your help!

I was wondering the same. Go figure! Maybe they text me too often :)

Clear the cache, and make sure everything is checked correctly.

Is your settings set like this? Maybe uncheck it.
