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 Google Fi, your previous voicemails remain in Google Voice. Voicemails you receive after the switch to Google Fi are found in the Google 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 Google Fi and then set up your phone to make & receive calls from your Google Voice number.
