Additional Notes:

  • Google Voice Number:
    • If you are trying to unlink your Google Voice number itself, keep in mind that you may need to transfer your Google Voice number to another Google account before unlinking it.
  • Alternate Number:
    • If the number you want to unlink is your primary phone number, you might need to set up an alternate number first. Google Voice typically requires at least one linked number.
  • Texts and Voicemails:
    • Keep in mind that if you unlink a number, you might lose access to text messages and voicemails associated with that number through Google Voice.

After unlinking your number, you can still use your Google Voice account with any remaining linked numbers or add new ones as needed. Always be sure to confirm any actions or changes to your account to avoid unintended consequences.
