when I lived in the US, I had a AT&T cell plus a google voice number. Now I moved to Istanbul & stopped the AT&T line.
My android & my iPhone ( which I had activated while in the US ) still continue to work in Istanbul with that old google voice. Which means, I can place calls to US and receive calls from US ( just like I was in the States ) using that old google voice number.
Now my question is the following:
I'm going to be getting the new note 7 by purchasing it here in Istanbul. Will I be able to use the hangouts apps & my existing google voice number on the new phone?
OR WILL IT TELL ME SOMETHING LIKE, I need an active US number, and that they will send me a verification code to that US number? If so, I'm out of luck.
The bottom line is I'd like to get a new phone in Istanbul and continue to use the google voice & hangout apps as I'm doing now. Is it possible?
