A couple questions about this.. I have a 416-XXX-XXXX and an identical GV # but with a 415 US area code.proplayer44 wrote: ↑Nov 9th, 2017 10:16 pmYou don't want to use your actual data Sim Fido # for caller ID. Then they will attempt to call you/ text you on that #.
The absolute best option is to take a bit extra time and get a Google voice number from the US.
Then port your current cell number to VoIP.ms and in the VoIP.ms settings you forward all calls to your new GV #. Then use Hangouts for all incoming and outgoing.
Zoiper and fongo are ok but not as clear as GV.
It took a bit of time but everyone I call knows my GV number as my number. They know it's me.
A lot of my texting now is in Hangouts too. Since that's the number they know. And it has MMS.
If I port to voip.ms, do all my outgoing GV calls show a caller ID with 415?
How much are incoming calls to my 416 if they are forwarded to 415?
This would be a great way to only pay for incoming calls. I could even start having people put both my numbers in their phone so my name shows up on their caller ID.
If there is some way make my outgoing caller ID the 416 number i would do this right away.
