I do not know if this will work anymore, because I did this years ago. But this is what I did.TruE SkiLLS wrote: ↑Nov 13th, 2017 1:47 pm@bridonca @proplayer44 Just wondering, is the easiest way to get a GV number to just buy an empty sim from anywhere in the states, then activate it?
Btw FYI to everyone else: I tried adding a US number on voip.ms to verify GV number, but google somehow doesn't allow that.
I got a free US number from a SIP provider. The one I used seems not to exist anymore. But these 2 companies still offer free US phone numbers. https://www.callcentric.com/dids/free_phone_number http://ipcomms.net/freedid I have used both companies free service in the past, but never for GV verification, so your mileage may vary. You probably should say you are not in the US or Canada, if they ask, to bypass 911 red tape.
This is the catch. And I think it is why you had poor luck. Google Voice needs to think you are in the US, You you either need an Amerifriend to register, or use a US based VPN. I do not know of any good, free, US based VPN's, so your on your own there. I strongly recommend you set up a separate google account for this endevour.
