Phone Number is Locked Into Google Voice and Can’t Access It, Releasing Your Phone Number From Google Voice

I recently signed up for a google voice account. I got a Google voice number and hooked it up to my cell phone. A week ago I canceled that account that I had the Google voice number signed up to. Even though I canceled the account all together, the Google voice phone number is still attached to my cell phone.

Now I cannot access my google voice account at all to get my cell phone number off of it. I have tried visiting the forums, and submitting tickets to Google, but there doesn’t seem to be any solution to this problem. My cell phone number is locked into Google Voice and I Can’t Access It, so i can/t get my cell phone number released from the account.

I am still looking for a way to have google voice release my phone number from an account that doesn’t exist anymore.

I have tried creating a new Google voice account and putting my cell phone number into it, but it just tells me that “the phone number is already being used.” There are no options to overwrite the number that is already being used.

The google Voice Forums have not been any help at all. And the responses from the tickets that I have submitted aren’t even close to resolving this issue.

If you have any information as to how i might be able to do this, please let me know. Feel free to post coments with any suggestins.

Just Trying To Get By in a Bad Economy, Making Ends Meet in a Recession

The Definition of a recession is the reduction of a country’s gross domestic product for at least two quarters (Wikipedia).

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, The United States began it’s current recession in December of 2007.

When our economy will break free from the current economic recession is unknown. The Great Depression lasted roughly 10 years. And we have seen many smaller recessions since then, that did not last nearly that long. I don’t believe that our current recession will last too much longer. Hopefully we can see things turn around for the U.S. Economy in the next year or two. But in the meantime…

In an attempt to offset the decrease in income due to the downward spiral of our economy, I have decided to start a blog with hopes of earning back a little of what has been lost. I’m sure everyone reading this can appreciate our situation and may be able to spread some light on how to be more successful with this. Feel free to post any comments or suggestions on our blog.

Our blog will focus on a variety of subjects, from financial tips and tricks, Health related issues, food and drink recipes, Electronic and gaming information, and a variety of other everyday useful information. All in an attempt to help us get by this recession.
