I can't verify my phone number, says it's invalid? I use google voice.

I can't afford a phone number/plan, only internet service. I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII and I can only use WiFi. I'm in rural north Texas and cell phone plans are extremely expensive, so I use Google Voice to text, receive and make calls. How do I verify my phone number?I can't post anything or message anyone. I live by myself in a small trailer in Nevada, TX.

You would have to get a real phone number, and not the Google voice one.

I can't.

With Google voice because it is an internet phone number, you cant verify it. You can get cheap disposable phones from Walmart and use that number. That's the only way.

Hi there, @cletusb - welcome to the community.

 

@aidenholley is correct - currently, it isn't possible to confirm a phone number with a VoIP number.
