    Working fine for me. I pre-ordered and activated online last Friday. Great phone. I predict it will be the top selling phone this year in the US. Device is more expensive overseas.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.
