    ST Dog is correct. SMS yes. MMS no. Probably wouldn't want to go with VoIP.ms if SMS/MMS is very important to you.

    Don't have an answer to your question. But have you considered porting that number to VoIP.ms? That's what I did with my old home landline. Costs .85/month plus minutes used (porting is currently...

    I have noticed a significant uptick in complaints about this issue in the GV support forums. Any idea why the majors have been disabling CCF for MVNOs? I don't get it.

    I should have been more clear. This has nothing to do with Siri. If you have GV set to use WiFi/data only you won't see the shadow number and it won't be an issue. If you have GV set to use "carrier...

    Won't work with texts. You can either send texts in GV or Hangouts, not both. You can make and receive calls in both but not SMS. I use GV for making/receiving calls since I can use Siri in the car....

    How are you initiating a call or text? Directly from the Contacts list or are you starting by selecting either the phone or text icon at the bottom of the screen?

    Fairly certain $30 plan can do autopay. Verizon loves autopay. You just wouldn't get the $5 discount as you would for the higher priced plans.

    Prepaid autopay requires either debit or credit card...

    Fraud. Fraud is easier and much more prevalent in the VoIP world than either the landline or cellular phone worlds. Google used to be much more lenient in what kind of numbers could be used to verify...

    That's the cheapest way I know of to do it if you don't have a friend with a cell phone or landline (like Comcast\Charter, etc) that you can temporarily use.

    In my experience it depends on the particular business sending the SMS. Google Voice works for many but not all businesses. For instance, my local Walmart pharmacy used to send texts to GV but then...

    Both TextNow and Textfree are OTT apps that use VoIP. Neither will work to verify a new GV number.

    Yes. Or a landline you might have access to. You only need this number to obtain and validate a new GV number. Once you have the new GV number you can delete that number from your GV account....

    It's not. Making an outgoing call/sms from Hangouts does not require a working Google Voice number. There is zero chance he could receive a call/sms sent to his old (expired) GV number in Hangouts.
