Google Voice to port US number?
« on: November 26, 2017, 05:20:20 PM »
Hello All!

I was wondering if any of you have used Google to port your US number when you moved. My husband and I really want to keep our US numbers alive and have a way for texts/voicemails to reach us (at least for the first few months). Anyone have any experience (good or bad) with using Google for this? Or another service perhaps?

I'm in the same boat! Someone recommended Google to me though I don't have any 1st hand experience. I've also read about a service called tossable digits that might work, but again, I haven't used that either.

Please report back on how you get on!

We use Callcentric.com.

It's $2.95 a month, and you can set it to go to a VOIP phone (no charge for incoming calls) or forward to another phone (pennies per call). I'd had them as our "home" phone service for years, and simply continued on when we moved overseas. Very happy with the service - plus you can set traps for telemarketers easily.  ;D

My husband and I use an app called magic jack that gives us a local number and my family is able to text and call us on there like normal, since not everyone in my family has I phone or Whats App. Although my 85 year old grandma uses whats app lol
