How do I port a number from Google Voice to SpectrumVoIP
Google Voice numbers are "locked" by default and must be "unlocked" prior to submitting a port request to move them to another provider. Google provides documentation on how to unlock your number with them here: Google Voice Support Currently they charge a $3 fee to unlock the number but we've had very few problems porting numbers in from them once the unlock is complete.
Once the number is unlocked a normal port request can be submitted as outlined in a separate Knowledgebase article: Porting Telephone Numbers to SpectrumVoIP
When submitting the completed LOA in the step above, please include a copy of the unlocking receipt obtained previously as well as a screenshot of the billing page from Google. Specifically one showing your name and/or company name with address. This will help ensure that the process is completed as quickly as possible.
Once your phone number has successfully ported, it's always best practice to notify the losing carrier (Google Voice) that you've ported your number out. In addition to notifying the losing carrier of the port-out, you should always request that they remove your number from their system on port out. This helps avoid any call translation issue occuring and other customers of the losing carrier not being able to call you at your new service provider.
