It's $3:

Unlocking your Google Voice number costs $3, but it's free if your number was originally ported in from a mobile service provider.

Number Barn?

https://www.numberbarn.com
$2 a month and $5 port fee, so lets just say until pesach which is about 8 months that's already $21 so GV would do the same trick.

  long term GV is your best bet, unless there's other options out there.

 IIRC there used to be service plans that stay alive for as long as you have minutes left.

You need the Visible app to activate the service. After that, Iím not sure if it will work in the app.

Unlimited plan for $10-$15 a month. Need 25 lines. I'd do it in a heartbeat if the billing can be arranged somehow

You can sign up for Visible and get a $100 MasterCard if you port in a number and pay for two months. You can get the first month for $5 and the second one for $25, so itís like 4 free months of service.
