    The number of my handset is not a forwarding number. Does it matter?

    I recently started using an iPhone with GV and noticed that the number of my iPhone (724 area code) is not listed with my linked numbers.

    Nor is my iPhone number a forwarding number.

    Nonetheless calls are ringing to my iPhone normally, probably because I have it listed as a device. Is there any reason to add my iPhone number as a forwarding number if the iPhone is the device I receive calls on?
    My smartphone is a lot smarter than I am.

    If you're using the GV app over data only, it doesn't matter.

    Relztrah, did you find out if you're using the GV app over data only? That's the only way I can think of that would allow your phone to ring when someone calls your GV # without your phone # being a forwarding #.

    I added my handset number as a linked number and made it a forwarding number. It's on the boom! 250 minutes/250 MB plan with unlimited texts which of course doesn't matter. I'll make wifi calls most of the time but I'll use those 250 mins when I'm out driving around. The 250 MB I will need for texts and apps when I'm not connected to wifi.

    The linked number is not required if you don't want GV calls to be forwarded. I have no linked number and each GV updates, it asks if I want to link a number. I select skip and it works as usual.
