Does Google Voice Light work on Freedompop?

Google has a 'toned down' version of Voice which doesn't require porting a phone number to google voice (or registering for a new one.) It doesn't have all of the fancy features but it has enough that I would consider using it.

Part of the functionality requires call forwarding. Would GV Light work on freedompop?

    @Gregory Vernon I personally used GV light with my phone and I have to say it's been pretty good with FreedomPop. Just be advised they won't be able to text a verification code so they'll have to call it in.

    @Ali Are there any features that are unsupported with FreedomPop? E.g., are you able to use Google's voicemail features (like transcription?)

    Ali, were you able to get voicemail to work with GV Lite? If so, how? When I try to add voicemail to my FreedomPop number, it simply says "Your carrier: BANDWIDTH_US (Not supported)"...

    I believe FreedomPop does not have any conditional forwarding to make Google Lite (Voicemail with you Mobile number) or any 3rd party voicemail work - therefore I am unaware there is a possibility to make it work at all. Ali may know something else... or maybe he was smoking something else... :)

    Isn't there a way to prevent google voice calls from going to your forwarding numbers' voicemail?

    Honestly this is why I just like using Hangouts by itself unless you have an android with unlimited regular talk and text.
    I like me deals and free stuff. Thx, peeps
