So my wife and I just joined Ting this week. In the process we ported our old numbers to Google Voice to take advantage of that service with Ting. Currently when I receive a call from my wife I see Number Unavailable. So my question is how do I set it up so that other people see mine and her GV numbers in caller ID.
Currently here are my settings:
Google Voice App:
Making Calls: Use Google Voice to Make Calls
Call Forwarding can be set on phone: NO
Can Make Calls: YES
Forward "Busy Signal" Calls" YES
Hide Caller iD from others: YES
Forward No Answer Calls: YES
So I know this question has been sorta asked before, but since I can't glean the answer I need - any help is appreciated. Thanks.
You have to make that change from Google Voice settings (on the web).
It's under that Calls tab of settings.
I also had to Uncheck "Hide your Caller ID from Others" on Ting to get my GV number to show
Dana, Dana, Dana...thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been trying to solve this problem ever since I switched to Ting two weeks ago. Nobody would answer my calls as they came through "Unknown". I followed your advice--Uncheck "Hide your Caller ID from Others" and my Google Voice number now displays to others in my outgoing calls. Thank you again...John K.
I too had this problem when I switched over from Sprint to Ting. I googled this particular problem and found the solution. I also searched the Ting website and found the solution there as well. Thanks to "Community" involvement for coming together to get this solved. Thanks everyone!
So glad the community could help you out Harold!
