I have changed the number on the other account to show as work and I'm still getting the following message. " "is connected to another Google Voice account.
Claiming this number will remove it from the other account, and any forwarding will be canceled."

Hi Kayaderossras, thanks for posting back.
 
It sounds like you are trying to add the cell phone number directly from the cell phone itself.  When added this way, Google Voice will assume it is a mobile number.  You'll need to add the number to the second account on a dekstop/laptop computer (not a smartphone or tablet), if you've already set it as Home/Work on the first account.  Otherwise you can add it to each account in this fashion.
 
When you click the "+ New linked number" choice, be sure to select the option "verify by phone" as you'll see at the bottom, in the following screenshot.
 
Numbers verified this way are presumed to be landline number, and not mobile.
 
Hope this helps, and you're able to get it all set up!

Thank You for the reply.  We change the first account thou legacy setting from Mobile to home and then signed into the 2nd account and went into the setting and added the number thou the exact thing your showing here and then after we click on send code we get the code and enter it and click on verify we get the message (  " "is connected to another Google Voice account.
Claiming this number will remove it from the other account, and any forwarding will be canceled.")

My guess is you have the "old" Voice number programmed in your Android "Phone" Settings under Call Forwarding (three or more times/settings). That will need to be changed to any other number, but probably to the carrier's assigned voice main number for you. Then it should work.

FYI, each Google Voice selected number stays with each unique e-mail address.

If you have an IOS phone, I don't know.
