Perform a Google Fiber Phone Self-Installation

Follow these instructions to self-install Google Fiber Phone. Your Fiber service must be installed and active before you can install Google Fiber Phone service. If you've already self-installed Google Fiber Phone at your current address and you're moving to a new address where Fiber service is available, you can move your existing phone equipment to your new location and install it there.

Step 1: Check your Fiber network

Ensure that your Google Fiber Network Box is connected and your Fiber service is active.

Your Google Fiber Phone service will become active and ready to use shortly. While you're waiting, set up your voicemail.

Dial *99 from your primary Google Fiber Phone (home landline or mobile phone) and follow the prompts to set up your voicemail.

If you're transferring an existing phone number to Google Fiber Phone, your number transfer will complete automatically within five business days. We will send you an email with a temporary number to use until your number transfer is complete.

  • Use Google Fiber Phone on your mobile phone and other devices using Hangouts
  • Forward your Google Fiber Phone number to another number 
  • Specify the types of incoming calls you'll accept
  • Manage your calls and set Do Not Disturb options
  • Set a ring schedule, and more!
