How to use same cell number for Multiple GV number ?
===============================================

Thanks for replies to my posting.

I had multiple GV numbers and some got expired. I do not have multiple cell number to for verify option.

I followed the steps to use same cell number as link number for multiple GV numbers.


https://support.google.com/voice/th...oice-numbers-linked-to-one-phone-number?hl=en

It is not working. I am able to my one cell number only in one GV number.


Any suggestions to use same cell number across multiple GV numbers?

Thanks for sharing.
 
You can't. The best option is to get a trial plan for $2, or a free plan, with a one-time $4.99 or $4.88 cost. If nobody has used the # to claim a GV # in the past, you can use it to get a new GV #.

I have multiple GV numbers on my phone, but I cannot verify more than one. So the limitation is forwarding, as far as I know, but if I use each stand alone, it still works.
 
Yes you cannot.

Free TextNow, order a SIM, apparently the SIM's "underlying" TMO number can be used one time to verify a gV number.

Not talking about the VoIP # assigned to your free TextNow account.
 
I have been using the three numbers on my phone, and I think I disconnected all three from my sim's number, at least two of them, this I have done for like, a year.
Maybe the reason for why it went expired is because it was not used for a year, like even the gmail needs to be used to keep the account, in opposed to just using it on the GV, you may have to also actually send a gmail email to someone.


Looking forward for an update to see how yours works.

Let us know.
 
I am confused as how TextNow works.

Can I get a free account and still TN's sim, and keep on using my own sim, and just use TN's app just like any other VOIP service (GV, Whatsapp, etc)?

One account can be used on all your devices concurrently, they all ring at the same time.

Yes you can optionally buy one SIM, TMO network, and that does not change the status of the account

but IMO only good as an emergency backup, glovebox phone maybe, their cell service plans aren't competitive
 
Is it possible for me to get multiple text now accounts and numbers so that I could just use one app and have like three or four or numbers on it like you know one for work one for friends the one for family etc etc. Is such a system able to be done? Because that was what it was so special about Google Voice that you can have like multiple numbers on one app one number with this email account onenumber will this email account one number with this email account.
 
Yes each account is just a different email address and number.

You just log the app in and out depending which number you want to use.
 
Put Google Voice I don't need to login and out I just press a button and I switches me between accounts, is that the same with the text now or do I have to actually log out put in type in my other emails username and password and then log back in? I just want to know how quickly I could move between accounts.
 
Yes you need to logout and in to switch

Maybe 5sec even using long passwords with a password manager.

No. That's one of the shortcomings of TextNow. You can only be logged into one account at a time, unlike the GV app, where you can be logged into multiple accounts at any time, and any of the GV #s will ring for an incoming call.

No, it's not the same with the TextNow app. With TextNow you have to completely log out and then log in with a different account to use a different TextNow phone #.

depending on device(or with 3rd party tools on more devices) may be possible to install multiple instances of Textnow app each using different logins.

there is also 2ndline which is essentially a textnow clone(same company) for android without the web access. 2ndline will even work over the textnow SIM data connection if you have a SIM
