I have a Google Voice number. My job has a Google voice number. How to get both to forward to my phone, or how to devise an alternative to my current set-up?
I have a Google Voice number forwarded to my personal phone number. My job's general line is a Google Voice number. They now want me to answer the general line - however, since I already have my own Google Voice number forwarded to my phone, I can't have a second Voice number forwarded (or so Google says). Right now, I have our general line ringing in Gchat, which is inconvenient because I miss calls when I'm not at my computer, I can't answer when I'm working in a public place and answering calls on my computer feels awkward.
I work from home and have only the one cellphone.
Is there an alternative I'm not thinking of?
-I read this
, which is a workaround for the forwarding. It didn't work for me, and disconnected my personal Google Voice from my phone.
-The ultimate goal would be to have our general line forward to my phone somehow, while keeping my personal number forwarded, but if there are truly no workarounds, I'm open to any ideas you have. I've considered getting a landline for this purpose, but I can't justify the expense (and my job wouldn't pay for it).
-Everyone uses my Google Voice number to call me personally, so I can't disconnect it from my phone.
Thanks for any ideas.
