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.

You may need to add some credits in order to be able to make the international call.

Anyone here using the sprint+google voice integration?

https://www.sprint.com/landings/googlevoice/?ECID=vanity:googlevoice

I wonder if it works on flip phones and if this will escape the new no text forwarding

From what I found online the integration with Sprint ended a while ago, see https://www.theverge.com/2018/4/17/17246880/sprint-google-voice-integration-ending-date.

Send yourself a text and see which one gets the email?

An SMS - like @whacked1 says -  should do, but you can also try the Google Voice recovery procedure here https://www.google.com/voice/account/recovery this will both email you but also show the first character and the character count of that email address.

login to voice.Google.Com and then you will see the number to that account displayed openly.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Seems he has the reverse issue. He knows the number, not the account linked to it

No app, just flip phone and desktop.  I use GV for a particular group of people.  Yes, I have the number, not the email.  I checked my regular emails and nothing there so I wanted a trigger as to which other obscure email it could be.  I will try some of your ideas above and report back.  Thanks.

bring me to the same Voice login page.  The problem is that page asks for email (I don't remember which one I used) or phone number (Google number or cell number?--but it doesn't recognize either number!).  The recovery page goes on to ask for personal information which I also will not remember what I wrote. 

What I am really after is my outgoing call log from google voice.  Is there any other way to retrieve it?  Incoming calls are logged on my cell phone carrier's itemized bill, but not outgoing calls.  Theose are all listed under my google voice number.

Are you are you currently using your Google voice? Meaning are you making phone calls from your Google voice account or are you trying to log in to an existing Google voice account you once had?

Not sure what you did, but this is what I get when going to the https://www.google.com/voice/account/recovery page:

I type in the 10 digit Google Voice number and press Submit, then I confirm I'm not a robot and it gives me this page (stars in the email address corresponding to my email address):

@srap probably didn't go to the old legacy mode.
 But cool.

I didn't go anywhere, just clicked the link. Tried normal browsing and Incognito, and it's the same.

I am currently using my GV number to make calls on my flip phone.  I can not get into my GV account nor recovery page since I do not remember the access personal info to sign in.

When I click the Google.com/voice/account/recovery URL link it brings me to the voice.Google.com URL and page which asks me for my GV number then my account info.  If it wouldn't automatically switch me over then I would see the pages you have above that would be helpful.

Have you tried Incognito?

Are you using a mobile browser? If yes switch to desktop site before going to this link.
