    Hi all,

    I was doing some messing around with my Cell and on my Pc I already use Google Chrome and got a Google Voice add on! In my dabbling (which i should have taken more notice of) I set up GV to use its Voice Message features then after I did so a button appeared asking if i wanted a GV Number in my area code I even put in my first name and now have full functioning GV919 780-4Bob :icon_ banana: !

    Now its possible that because I have so many other Google apps/programs and the fact I requested a GV number about 10 weeks ago it allowed me to do this BUT guys maybe not!!

    I just paid $2 on ebay and didn't worry about the headache of trying to find someone to give me an invite.

    Will not verify phone number

    After verifying your phone number after prompting you for your email address, it verifies your phone number - which it did successfully. It then asks for a four-digit PIN number. You enter it, then enter it once again to confirm the PIN. It then says that it once again is verifying my phone number. After about a minute of working, it then says that phone number can not be verified. Have tried several times and kept getting same response.

    Has anyone else had same problem?

    when I first set up I used to get recordings saying that I had a Vrzn # that was changed or out of service and after confirming this with Vrzn I changed to a different number and its been working as advertised! Maybe a change of number will work correctly?

    You need an invite and then register on their site. I had the same thing happen to me until i got an invite and registered.
