Ability to get a GV number using FP number
I was wondering if anyone could confirm my suspicion that by only having verified my FP phone number, GV errs when I try to get a GV number. I can verify and everything fine, but when I choose a number I get the same unspecified error continuously. Since I have done this successfully when I had a t-mobile number, and seeing FP is treated differently by GV. I'm guessing I can't get a new number with only my FP one verified. The problem is that my FP number is the only number I have now. If this is the case could someone confirm this? Also, if so, would anyone have any suggestion on how to get a usable number that doesn't involve me awkwardly asking people if I could temporarily borrow their phones long enough to verify it as my forwarding number, and I would then promise to remove it? This is kind of lame because I don't want the forwarding, I just want my phone with a FP sim to use a GV number for hangouts. I need a GV number, though, and the tutorials I see here mostly involve already having one.
