    So at least in the past there was a loophole with google voice where you could get it to forward to an Alberta number with a 403 area code. Anyway it was working fine when I last tried to make a call with it about 2 days ago, but today it's giving me an error. Does anyone know if Google finally decided to close this loophole or if this problem is just something random that should work itself out in a little bit?

    So this is weird, it says call failed if I try to make an outgoing call with google voice, but I just received and incoming call. Maybe it's just google slowly closing the loophole, but it does give me a bit of hope that it might start working again.

    I'm getting the same message. Although it only started to pop up over the weekend. One difference I have noted is that when you choose the phone to use the formatting of the number is a bit different. Can still text and receive calls. Are we out of luck?

    I read on a couple of forums to try to use 12voip and the app mobilevoip to try forward to the google voice number. Haven't figured it out yet but ill try and see what I get.

    Lets try and figure this out. I rely on google voice quite a bit.
