    I was wondering can you forward your number to use your Google voice number on the iPhone 4s? I am currently using a prepaid plan and was hoping to use Google Voice forwarding so I do not have to waste money. When I go to settings, phone, call forwarding, and then enter my number, I cannot seem to get my phone to ring and it immediately goes to my voice mail.

    Does anyone have a solution to why I am having this problem?

    No but when I'm cheating on my girlfriend I give bishes my GV number so that way they don't know my real # and I can stay stealthy

    I use Google Voice a lot, in a wide variety of ways. Very flexible, reliable, and efficient I've enjoyed the advantage of all it's features.

    Having a plan with AT&T with unlimited everything, how many minutes I use makes no difference.

    Because the iPhone is expensive. If I buy a cheap flip phone, I can afford my minutes.

    The obvious one is so you're not giving out your cell number to everyone and you have far more control over who calls you and when.

    Bingo.
    GV doesnt mean free cellphone minutes or calls.
    Lots of people selling on Craigslist use GV so they dont post their real number out there.

    I give my GV to people who ask for my number but I don't want to be rude to and tell them no.
