How long does the transfer take?

The transfer begins when you activate service on your phone. Transfers from Google Voice can take up to a few business days. In the meantime, you can use your original phone and number for calls and texts. Calls to your Google Voice number continue to be forwarded.
If your transfer takes longer than a few business days, contact a Google Fi expert.

If you can’t transfer your Google Voice number

If you have problems transferring your number to Google Fi, contact a Google Fi expert. Keep in mind that some Google Voice numbers can’t be transferred to Google Fi.

Tip: When you switch from Google Voice to Fi, your previous voicemails remain in Google Voice. Voicemails you receive after the switch to Fi are found in the Fi app or by calling your voicemail.

Important: Some third-party services don’t accept phone numbers that originated from Google Voice. This includes after they’ve been ported to Google Fi. We recommend contacting any affected third-party service providers should this issue arise. You can get a new number with Fi and then set up your phone to make & receive calls from your Google Voice number.

Move your number back to Google Voice while keeping a Fi number

You can have a Google Fi and Google Voice number in the same account. To move your Fi number back to Google Voice and get a new Fi number, follow these steps.

Prepare to move your number:

  • During this process, your current Google Fi number moves back to Google Voice. You get the option to choose a new number for your Google Fi account.
  • The process to move the number back to Google Voice can take 24 hours.
