I've a T-mobile prepaid number I'm switching to Google Voice or a similar service. Can I do so once I'm no longer in the U.S., perhaps no longer receiving SMSs messages on the phone?
If so, how to they authenticate that you own the number? I'd assume Google SMSs you an authentication code which T-mobile pre-paid might not deliver abroad in my remaining questions.
How long does the process take? Could I just do it form the wifi at the airport?
How long does the authentication token last? Could I create it now and enter it online once I reach my destination, giving me a phone at the airport.
Any recommendations for lists of services similar to google voice to peruse?
