Can't get call from Google Voice to re-verify number

Post by Stelcom66 » Sun Aug 11, 2019 8:44 am

When I first started using Google Voice (GV) my home phone number was with Frontier, or maybe AT&T. In early 2016 I had it ported to Ooma. GV wants me to re-verify my home number. That's done with an automated phone call that says a number code, which I'd then enter in GV. I never get the call. I have a trouble report going with GV. I even unblocked everything temporarily, Blacklist, Nomorobo, etc. - same. I now immediately get 'Something went wrong...' from GV. The call comes from a 202 area code. Doubt it's something on Ooma's end but thought I'd post it in case anyone else has run into this.

My Ooma numbers ring when I call the GV number.

Update - looks like once the number expires that's it, won't be able to use it with GV. Worked with a GV expert on the forum with no resolution.

I too experienced this issue in August. However, I was just able to link my Ooma number with Google Voice. I would advise you to try it again.

I added the Google Verify phone number to my contact list.

I eventually was able to re-verify my number with Google Voice.
