Google Voice Calls Not Working

Post by cliff86 » Tue May 01, 2018 4:48 pm

So I love using google voice so far. I however only have been able to text with it. Calls error out. I did not care until today when I saw I got a call I did not expect. Do I need the number set to forward to my actual number? Why when I dial a number does the number it dials change?

GV forwards to your phones #. You can also use GV as an VOIP through the web. There is a GV app (I use this) in the play store or you can also use Hangouts to manage the number with your phone.

I've been on Google voice for almost 4 years and it's worked well for me.

The problem was I set it up with my old hobby phone so it was trying to forward to it not my actual cell phone.
