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.

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.
No.

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

How do you know that the calls are coming in over data?

very simple, I see the google voice incoming call screen instead of the standard one, nevertheless I figured it out, they now combined place calls through gv with receive so if you set it to on both will go through gv data, while my preference would be to be able to set them individualy

I am trying to port a number to Google Voice that is currently a landline (Biz account). It looks like Google Voice doesn't allow from land lines. Does anyone know what my other options are to keep a landline phone number?

maybe this?
https://www.amazon.com/T-MOBILE-TRIPLE-CUT-STANDARD-UNACTIVATED/dp/B01M7W3AUU/ref=sr_1_19?keywords=tmobile+prepaid+sim&qid=1560354450&s=gateway&sr=8-19&tag=cl03f-20

Disclaimer I take no responsibility re: if this is what you need
I assume he needs one with a plan, this is just an unactivated sim card.


Maybe this.

You could even use any old unused Sprint phone (or even just an unused IMEI) and port the landline to Ting's CDMA service in order to get the number to GV.

Does anyone know how the new commercial Google Voice Enterprise edition available in G Apps compares to the consumer version of Google Voice?
