My Verizon Account - SMS Text Reminders

Message 1 of 3

I am unable to set a Google Voice number to receive the SMS Text reminders in the FiOS My Account Settings. Nor am I able to set the Number as my Mobile number under Personal Information.


It keeps telling me to enter a valid mobile number.  This is my mobile number. I do various contract work who's companies generally provide me with a phone during the contract. At times my number can change more than one a month.  I use Google Voice to prevent from having to give out my number each time. These numbers can receive messages from Short Codes, just not send. I have this set up for my other services that allow SMS reminders/updates. Disappointing that I cannot have it here.

I'm having the exact same problem.  I'm also using a Google Voice number that works for everything else.
