Re: Google Voice App "random number"

I HAVE a smartphone and I don't make calls from the GV app because I need my phone to call FROM my Google Number. Not some random number like the app does. All one has to do is call one's own Google number and make calls from it.

I know what you're talking about, but you concerns about using the app because of the "random numbers" dialed are unfounded.

The unique numbers dialed by GV are internal to Google only. Your Google Voice number always appears on the receiving party's caller ID.

Install the app and do a couple test calls. Your fears are completely without merit; the google-assigned quasi-random numbers are transparent and meaningless. No one will ever know you're using the app instead of a callback feature.

There are other motives to operate outside the official app, but random phone numbers isn't one of them.
