Use a different area code?
Try this https://ebay.us/Db0t6r.
Read the description for how to specify a area code.
Whether you think you can or you think you cannot, you're right.

I have had issues making phone calls directly from my GV app on my phone last day or 2. I can still call via my GV number on my regular phone app.
I'm not who you think I am.
