Google Allows Porting Existing Number to Google Voice

If you like Google Voice, this may be your last hurtle to making the complete stitch over. It is not free with the cost set at a one time fee of $20. Your current carrier may also charge a fee.


"Many of us have a phone number that we've shared with family, friends and contacts over the years and are reluctant to let go.

One of the most frequent requests we hear from people who use (or want to use) Google Voice is that they’d like to get all of Google Voice’s features without having to give up their long-time phone numbers.

Today, we’re excited to announce that Number Porting is available for all existing Google Voice users. This means you can make the mobile number you’ve always used your Google Voice number, so it can ring any phone you want—or even your computer.

  2. Thanks for the info, Mike. I've tried a bunch of free VPN services that are available online, but none of them worked. Some I couldn't log into, and other's just didn't give me a US IP. There was one, but it made a bunch of ADs appear at the top of each webpage. Anyway, I decided to try the solution at the link you provided because it was a one time fee, unlike the paid VPN services. It worked great! I'm in the UK and I'm so happy to finally get my call phone button back.
