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.

No.  See this post :

No!
That is one of the reasons why I need  to access the inked email address.

ETA:  I know my pin,  but after entering the pin,  I get a message that I'm not calling from one of the forwarding numbers and therfore can't access the account.

New changes GV made a few weeks ago.  You don't know (or have) a forwarding number?

I think I did set one up. 

I tried every number that I think it possibly could have been,  but I still get the same message  :-\

Not ssure how to do that,  but I did look through the auto fill presets to see if I could find any clues,  but couldnt find anything.

I probably opened the email incognito as not to interfere with my other emails.

Anyways,  I don't know the username,  so password wouldn'thelp me.

Did you port in the number and use a CC? Maybe you can trace it that way...

I would imagine that google has a phone number to discuss billing, call them, give them your cc number and billing date, and see if they can pull up your account.

Thanx..  I will research  that option. 
From what I've researched so far,  it seems that doesn't really communicate by phone.
