Google Phone Verification Too many Attempts? 0 Recommended Answers 24 Replies 45 Upvotes

I've been trying all night to port my Mobile phone number to Google Voice. I was stuck on on the Phone Verification screen. I tried several times to get past this screen but I would get the "Calling Now..." for about a minute followed by the Error message.

I then called my mobile carrier. It turns out that my account had been configured a long time ago to forward calls to a number that doesn't exist. (I don't use this number often, that's why I need to port it to Google Voice.) I finally got that cleared up and confirmed that I can receive calls at this number.

But now when I go to do the Phone Verification screen it immediately fails with "We could not verify your phone. Please try again." No attempt is made to actually call me.

I suspect that the problem is that I've tried too many times and some kind of throttling is in effect. But the error message provides zero information.

Am I being throttled? If so, how long do I have to wait before I can try again?

Is there any way to port a phone number and bypass the cursed Phone Verification screen? Are there Verification alternatives where I call or message Google?

If you try to verify too many times, Google will put a 24 hour hold.
So try again tomorrow.

I had the same issue.  I did successfully get one call from many attempts.  When I entered the verification code, on the only successful call, the automated message said it did not understand the entry.  I entered the code three time with no success and was asked to call again later.  Now I maxed out on call attempts.  How do I avoid this happening tomorrow?

Another problem is that the text with the verification code takes too long to send (quite a few minutes). I had no idea that it was just delayed and I kept asking for a new code until it maxed out.  The screen prompts should warn of this if the delay is so out of Google's control.

Getting frustrated after trying to transfer my number to Google Voice. Now I am stucked with a prepaid t-mobile number with my old landline number attached to it. It always say Could not verify my number-Please try again. Waited for 24 hours then occasionally it will dial it until it times out. I tried everything from resetting my network settings-calling level 3 t-mobile-disabling blocking features. Now my percentages of getting through the phone verification process went from 50% now down to 10%.

You have indeed temporarily banned your phone number from being verified, by attempting it over and over.  Stop doing that.
 
Since you ported over a landline, it can take up to a week for the telephone network's routing tables to all be updated.  Call your now-T-Mobile number from some other phone number.  It must ring on your mobile phone and you must be able to answer that call.  If so, then wait a few more days, and try (once!) to verify it again.
