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.

Have you tried Incognito?

Are you using a mobile browser? If yes switch to desktop site before going to this link.
Using mobile browser.  How do I get to the desktop site on the mobile browser? How do I go incognito?  I will check back for your answers (thank you) in a few hours.

Which browser app? Most browsers would have a Desktop Site option somewhere in the menu after loading a page. (Set it and then paste in this recovery sure link in that tab.)

Does anyone know of a option to have my google voice number which is now my old American mobile number forwarded to israeli phone number? or if anyone knows how to make israeli sim cards into eSim that would work as well.

Flip phone? Get an American/Isreal number and set up call forwarding?
 Though I remember someone mentioning that setting up something with callcentric for a few dollars allowed the number to be forwarded to your Isreal number, as it seems they had the number ring on one of their numbers and then had it forwarded to your Israeli number.

Smartphone, and the only issue is that I use HotMobile for data and they donít offer American numbers and you cant fwd GV # to Israel #. So the other option was to get another sim just with calling and American number and fwd like usual the only issue is that I use a iPhone and in order to do dual sim one sim needs to be eSim and in Israel they donít offer that feature. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated

  What's wrong with having your Google Voice number ring on your Israeli phone? 
 If it's all the same phone why do you care for rings on yours Israeli number versus ringing on your Google Voice?

If you want someone to be able to try to help you, you'd need to give way more details about the issue you're having.

To start:
- What platform/way are you accessing Google Voice and trying those things?
- What happens when you try (for each of the things)?
- You can login to the google voice account online and see your phone number there?

What's this set as? Make sure it's set as mobile data and wifi. Otherwise the phone calls, texts and all won't work.

Here's a pic what it should be set to.

I live in Israel and have been trying to get a GV number.
I'm using a VPN, browsing incognito on my desktop, and even created a new gmail account, and 'somehow' Google always finds out that it's not legitimate and shuts it down within minutes.

Any tips on how I can obtain one that wont be shut down?

If still in need, I used local phone to get an American # on my Israeli phone, until I switched to tripletel that comes with an American #, and did fwding

I also had this issue, the only way it worked for me was by connecting by Team viewer to computer in the US, and then it worked.

It seems like Google voice Stopped recognizing the linked number when calling from it  :( used to automatically go to the menu...
You now have to click * during the message to access the menu and enter your pin like you would do from any phone. you can at least set up the linked number go straight to VM (avoid the ring wait time) by creating a rule for that number in the "Custom call forwarding" option. (if you only have one forwarding number which doesn't have VM/call waiting etc. then your calls will automatically go to the VM right away) or if you only use GV for outgoing calls, just click on the "do not disturb" setting to access VM right away

Any Solution? I've tried everything!!! I own the account, it's under my name, the account number was copy and pasted from my bill, I use the passcode all the time, I even called ATT to confirm all the info.

I try to sound as intelligent as possible.

Your previous service provider's port department should be able to tell you why they didnt approve the port request...
