    But you can do number changes, which may (or may not) allow a way to port your number to Google Voice number with some careful swaps via a temporary added line.

    Why not at least ask Selectel if it can be done? It is a lot cleaner. Just a standard GV Setup. No forwarding back to GV which is not the way GV was designed to work and is error-prone.

    You do not need to have Google Voice on the phone.

    Google voice would just forward calls to it.

    You could see if they would help you port your number to Google Voice to handle voice mail, but keep the account open with a new number.

    Right - come to think of it was for Puppy Wireless which "Kitty" started up after splitting from PagePlus.

    Actually it is.

    This has been a problem ever since the days of Kitty Wireless (actually Puppy Wireless).

    The penalty was exactly the same then, $20 plus a month, as I recall. I recall "Kitty"...

    Boom does not know the whole story because Verizon has not told them the whole story. They are just giving some possibilities that might help.

    Right - I suspect that the device penalty is usually the major one.

    In some cases the penalties are very small, according to what has been said, and MVNO's may absorb them from their profit...

    Thanks for the information! It sounds as the Red Pocket Verizon side does not include non-LTE voice fallback either.
    That is interesting that you do have Visual Voicemail working.
