Google Voice Blocked Zenofon?

I am not sure if Zenofon is popular here but it create a US (646) mask number for each foreign number you add into your account.

However when I tried to add this 646 number as a Google Voice forward number, the returns: "This number is already add as a cell phone number in another Google Voice account".

This doesn't make any sense to me because even if the number was in another account, when you add it to your account it is pulled. Also, that number was newly created by Zenofon and shouldn't have been used.

My only thought is that Google Voice blocked Zenofon numbers. Is there any specific reason for this? What I am trying to do is associating a foreign number to GV such that: calls -> GV -> Zenofon Mask -> Foreign Number. This what you cannot do with GV.

Even if you could initially enter your 646 number, how will you verify it on GV?

the 646 number rings your associated number then you could verify. that shouldn't be a problem.
however I kind of understand the problem here:
zenofon numbers are not unique to any user. many real numbers are linked to a 646 number and when you call that 646, the system decide which real number to call according to your caller ID (such as mobile phone).

If that's the case did you try adding your GV number to the Zenofon account?

I know, but you said ZF matches the incoming CID, so you may have to imput the GV number if you want ZF to use its 646 number.
