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 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!

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.

Does not make much sense. More likely he made "a lot" calls and was either reported or suspected as a spammer.

Apparently it's a false alarm this guy doesn't even know that Google voice was the cause it's just the way he found out that his account was deactivated he could as well have violated the TOS of any other Google service

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!
Interestingly they replicated the iOS design for the calls, it's the same on android

That's more like it!
 Was surprised he didn't give the reasoning that he sent to many emails with his gmail account. ;) Lol

Not near a computer now. But is there an option on a desktop to change the voicemail to a standard greeting with the phone number VS the voicemail saying you've reached this google subscriber, and don't want to create a personal one.
