First, I am a gadget geek. I may be playing with several devices at once. Now I have a CDMA and a GSM ting device. I like the GSM as it has LTE in my town where CDMA does not. However, coverage is poor at work and at home.
What I am considering doing is porting my primary number to Google Voice and having it handle voicemail and forwarding to whatever devices I want. As long a GV stays running I get to keep my primary number and individual devices do not matter anymore. Plus I can use the GV Dialer for VOIP calls I suppose while on wifi, but that is of secondary importance.
Does this plan sound logical? If so, has anyone worked with google to port in a number? How long should I expect to be without a working primary number? Obviously, since I am on Ting, I do not have a contract to worry about when the number gets ported, I just have to reactivate the device with a new number.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.
