Will Google Voice # show on caller ID?


#1

Planning on switching to RW but I plan on porting my number to Google Voice first and forwarding calls to my Republic #
All my contacts would know me by my GV number and I want to make sure that my GV number will always show on caller ID instead of my RW #. Does the republic app interfere with that at all?

This will work like any other carrier (the setting needs to be set up in the Google Voice app

the routing for a normal carrier

  • when number dialed, the dialer calls Google Servers and Google Servers route the call

on Republic there a few more steps in the background

  • on Cell when number dialed, the dialer calls Republic Servers and Republic Servers route the call to the Google severs which reroutes to the number dialed

  • on WiFi when number dialed, the dialer is already conceded to Republic Servers which routes the call to the Google severs which reroutes to the number dialed
