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.

Afaik the only way is to set your phone voicemail to start before 30 seconds

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.

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
