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.

That the original GV number is now a reg ( Verizon for example ) number. However it's still not allowing to attach a new GV to it.
what do you mean by that?
 Do you mean the opposite you're trying to use the so-called house number(which was ported from Google Voice) and connect it to your Google Voice account?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I used to have numbe A for GV. Now I ported number A to my cell phone carrier. Now I want number B to be my new GV number and link it to number A (which is now my cell phone number ) to have calls forwarded there..

Which website/service doesn't allow VoIP/Google voice numbers to be used with their services?

Officially WhatsApp doesn't allow, but my number is working fine on there. The same with Uber.

I had an issue using my VoIP on uber and had to make a new account (wouldn't let me log in) so now my uber is a real number. WA is still VoIP and has been for 3 years but was initiated when it was a real #. Others have had issues with WA and VoIP.
I have come across websites which knew it was VoIP and didnt let my number, but I don't remember which websites they were.
I'm not who you think I am.

I ported my GV number to my regular phone carrier. Now when I try to link a GV number to my phone it doesnít allow it because itís a google voice number. Any help?
Did you get an email from Google after you ported it out?

I was actually just asking for myself. I ported out my Google number and now it's in limbo. I can make outgoing calls but can't receive incoming (except through Hangouts). I read that Google sends an email when a number is ported out (which I didn't receive yet) so I was just curious if they still do that.

Anyways how did you fix your issue?

It seems like it's working now. I got the email around an hour ago and now everything is running through the carrier. It took a few chat sessions with support but wasn't too bad.

Total port time was like 3 days (with following up with support).

My house phone is google voice through obihai. As these days my kids have conference calls, is there a way to bypass and dial out?
The regular conference dial out won't work...

Im having issues connecting to a conference call with Google voice. When entering the conference pin it seems to be doubling each digit that is pressed (the system reads back the input when there's an error).

Can this be caused due to some conference calls not being supported on Google voice?
