How does Google Voice work when you have no cell phone reception?
Can anyone explain in steps? I’m a little lost. But anyways, yeah I’m basically moving to an area where there’s no cell phone reception for calling/texting. There’s wi-fi and I have been suggested Google Voice for texting/calling. Can anyone care to explain?
