    Did you get a Google Voice number from Google? You need to request one from Google first.

    Sorry if you already knew that, just trying to cover the basics.

    They don't do invites anymore, just go to the google voice web site and sign up for Google Voice.

    You should get your number within a few days and then you can set up your Google Voice on line. It needs your Cell number.

    That's why it's not working.

    I had to activate Google Voice for someone today and it seemed like it wasn't working because it just hung up with a tone. We tried dialing the *whatever number a few times. While doing that, I logged onto the google voice web site and poked around, clicking the activate this phone setting.

    Anyway, it started working mysteriously after doing that.
