Using Google Voice
Posted on 2014-07-24
I'm setting up a computer for a client, Dell 3010 Optiplex with Windows 7 64 bit. She needs a phone until we can set up Ooma. I installed Google Voice but it isn't doing the trick. When I set up Google Voice on my computer years ago it was simple. I use my computer to make a call. When I set it up on hers they required that we link it to an existing phone. We did so with her cell phone. We don't want to make or receive calls with her phone. (It has lousy reception in this area, which is why I set up Google phone.) Somewhere in her Google settings I tried to tell it not to forward to the cell phone. But that didn't work. Any idea how to set up Google phone like we want to use it? Or should I just try Skype or another phone service that's easier to set up?
