Perform a Fiber Phone Self-Installation

Follow these instructions to self-install Fiber Phone. Your Fiber service must be installed and active before you can install Fiber Phone service. If you've already self-installed 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 or Mini Network Box is connected and your Fiber service is active.

Connect the Phone Box to either your Network Box or TV Box using the Ethernet cable provided in your Phone Box kit.

Step 5: Set up voicemail

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

Dial *99 from your primary 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 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.

Step 6: Set advanced options

To set additional Fiber Phone options, sign in to Fiber using the name and email you use for your Fiber account and select Phone from the navigation menu to display the Phone settings page. Fiber Phone settings let you:

  • Use Fiber Phone on your mobile phone and other devices using Hangouts
  • Forward your 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!
