I'm having issues registering a Google Voice number, can you help?

  • Before attempting to verify a Google Voice number, modify your Google Voice settings to disable "Ask unknown callers to say their name", under the "Settings/Calls" section.
  • Google Voice intercepts DTMF codes, so you may not be able to verify your Google Voice number with babble.ly if the babble.ly verification code includes the number "4". If this happens just reload the babble.ly verification page to receive a new verification code.


  • What if I don't have a smartphone or browser handy?

    babble.ly supports SMS for link information and placing calls. Just text HELP to 415-325-2003 to get a list of commands. Standard text message rates may apply.
