I have a google number. What app do I use and can I use this in Canada for free? I tried google hangouts but looks like they charge ? Also loaded google voice but can’t access the verification code they want to send.

Thanks

Ya thats what i was talking about the prepaid is always more. Its the month to month plans i want to get on but they always require US ID.
lol what in the US the prepaid is almost always cheaper than postpaid. Plus without a US credit history, they'll ask you to put down a deposit when they check your credit.

Use the Google Voice app. The is wifi/data calling built into it now. No forwarding number or hangouts required. You need to download it from the US play store.

So google voice app is different USA/Canada? Because I downloaded it from Canada and it wants a verification code.

Last time I checked it was not available in the Canadian store. You downloaded a different app if from the Canadian store.

Edit, here is a link to the app in the us store, but you might not be able to access it,

Looks like this? Image

Maybe it's in the Cdn store, but I don't see why it would be if it not available for Canadians.

Yeah I’m really confused now. I have downloaded from both countries.

It seems to want to link to some numbers .

Anyways thing I’ve given up for now. Maybe revisit this tomorrow.

Thanks for your help though :)

Do you mean it wants you to input a US number for verification? Yeah there's no way around that, you'll have to get an Amerifriend to help you, or do it the next time you're in the US and have access to a US phone.

Aww yeah I think it does want that as you mention. I think maybe this needs to be setup while in America.

Then maybe it will work here.

Thanks again.
