Google Voice + Hangouts + Hangouts Dialer not working for texts

Hi, I am trying to use Google Voice + Hangouts + Hangouts Dialer to send/receive MMS, but I can't even get it to send simple text messages. I have created a Google Voice account and ported my number to it, then installed Google Voice, Hangouts, and Hangouts Dialer. When I try to confirm my number within the Hangouts app, all I get is a google verification code coming into my FP messaging app. But it seems Hangouts doesn't successfully confirm my number.

Whenever I try to send a message through Hangouts, I get the "You are not allowed to send text messages. Msg 2120" error. Can somebody help me with this please?

    Richard, thanks for your response. It seems like Google Voice can't port my FP number at the moment. I had to create a new number with GV and use that as my Hangouts number.

    @moy12 Google voice can only port numbers from cell carriers. FP because it is a voip is considered a landline. The only way you would be able to port your FP number to google voice would be to first port to a prepaid cell carrier (like straight talk) then port the number from straight talk to google voice.

    There is another company that you could port your number to but they currently do not have MMS. They are working on it and should be turning it on some time in Q2 of this year.
