How to port your home phone number to Google Voice

Post by e440hz » Sat Mar 19, 2011 12:34 am

1. realize you don't need the comcast triple play
2. buy a 12 dollar AT&T Go phone from Walmart
3. activate it using the included instructions
4. call AT&T and request a port (of your home number, it's free)
5. once completed call AT&T and find out your account number
6. register for Google voice
7. port your new new wireless number to GV
8. be happy that for about 35 bucks you can cancel your comcast triple play(just paying for Internet saves about a hundred bucks off your monthly bill) while keeping your home phone number

I got Google Voice activated not with this AT & T number but with the existing land line I was having. I feel this is a cheaper option. It is a nice option to get a free phone connection without spending much from our pocket.
