I live outside of the US and need to get a US number mainly for ID verifications usually by text but some might be by phone call. I rarely have to do this so don't want to spend a lot of money.

Best if it is connected to an app that will alert me to the phone call or text.

Is the Satanic Google the way to go with their Voice?

Thanks

Unfortunately, yes.

I have five Google Voice numbers. A separate Google account is required for each.

I use them for my businesses, and for selling stuff on Craigslist and Ebay by having them re-direct calls to my real phone numbers because Voice is very good at filtering out spam.

I used free email addresses at Yandex.com and GMX.com to get the numbers because both work well with my favorite IMAP e-mail client Thunderbird.

Thanks and how about Voice ability to handle text messages?

Since I don't live in the US I don't have a US phone number to route to

TextNow, Talkatone, and 2ndLine are free and work for a lot of things. But if it's for Twitter or something that doesn't allow voip numbers, you gotta go with Google Voice.

Texts work great on Google Voice. It has a web-mail type interface similar to Gmail for reading, archiving, or marking them as spam.

I am almost certain texts can be auto-forwarded to a phone number or email address, but I've not tried it. I do all my texting correspondence on a big computer screen instead of being pestered by them all day. (Which is bad for one's mental health).

I don't know for sure that calls and texts can be routed to non-U.S. numbers, but I'm almost sure they can.

No idea, but I do have a related question. I'm looking for a(n initially UK) phone number/provider which will accept an unlimited or large number of calls and just ring away without giving a busy tone. I kno it sounds like I'm setting up a scam but I'm knot, just a way-out project. A US number would probs work even better tbh.
