When I try to make a call on my phone from my regular cell phone number from my provider, and not my google voice number, it always redirects to my google voice number to make the call. Is there a way to make calls from my regular phone number without it always going to my google voice number. I had planned only using google voice for only work, and didnt wanna change my number completely. Thanks. 3838

Open your Google Voice app, and tap the three stacked lines in the upper left corner. Then tap "Settings." Scroll down to "Calls" and tap "Calls started from this device's phone app." This will open up the "Outgoing calls" options. Select the "No" option. Then tap the left arrow on the top left of the screen. Now under "Calls started from this device's phone app," you should see "Use your phone's carrier number."
 
Now when you call out from your phone's native dialer, it should go via your cell number instead of GV. If you want a call to go through your GV number, then open the GV app, and then make the call either by selecting the number from your GV contacts, or by tapping on the dial icon in the lower right corner to open up the GV dial pad. Then enter the number, and hit the call button.

I cannot seem to have it not ring on my computer, when I only want it on my cell phone. If anyone could please help me figure this problem out I would appreciate it.
Thank you, Lisa

Lisa Ingels: Try this. On your computer, while signed into your Google Voice account, go to your account's settings, click on "Calls" in the left-hand sidebar, and then scroll to "My devices." Turn off the switch for "Web," and that should stop calls on your computer.
