I have 2 Google accounts. I want to move my current Google voice account to another one of my Google accounts.

Does anyone know how this can be done?

Earl:

This is what Google Employee Hannie had to say in another post on this topic:

18 March 2009

Hi all,

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you are a GrandCentral user who upgraded to Google Voice before March 18: If you tried to create a new Google account, while being signed into another Google Account, and inadvertently ended up with your GrandCentral number tied to the wrong Google Account, we are allowing a one time chance to change the Google Account your GrandCentral number has been associated with.

If you've upgraded to the wrong Google Account and need to associate Google Voice with a different Google Account, submit your request on the following form:

http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=cjlWRDFTWERkZEIxUzVjSmNsN0ExU1E6MA..

It may take us up to a week to process this request. We will contact you if we need further information or to update you on your status.

Please note that there are a few things you should be aware of if you wish to re-upgrade to a different Google Account:
- Your call history and voicemails since the upgrade will not transfer over upon re-upgrading
- The settings changes you've made will not transfer over upon re-upgrading
- You can only re-upgrade once
- The re-upgrade process may take up a week
- Do not make any international calls or buy international call credit until the re-upgrade process has been completed

This form will only be available for two weeks and will close on April 2, 2009. After this, we are not allowing further re-upgrade requests.

We appreciate your cooperation.

I have a similar problem...

When I upgraded to GV from GC, my GV account got associated with the Gmail account that I was logged-in with at that time; and not my original Gmail account that was associated with GC.

How do I change my GV account to another Google Account?

Thanks.

Thanks. I filled out the form. We'll see how it goes.

@John D0e

Use the link; it still works.
Re: Move Google Voice to Another Account John D0e 6/2/10 4:22 AM
Thanks Box7184. I'll give it a try, but I'm pretty doubtful that it'd still work this far after the "expiration" period. *shrug*
No harm in trying...thanks again!

If you want to transfer your GV account to a different Google account, you can.  GV staff have posted* these caveats
- It may take up to 2 weeks to process (though most of the time it's within 2 days)
- Request will not be processed if the requested target account is a Google Apps account
- Request will not be processed if the pin is incorrectly specified
- Request will not be processed if the target account already has a Google Voice account (unless you explicitly specify that you want the other Google Voice account destroyed)
- All greetings and recorded names will need to be re-recorded after the transfer.

You make the transfer request here
Any way to transfer my Google Voice account to a different Google Account?

Now that the Google Apps accounts and normal GMail accounts are merging, I see that it is possible to get Google voice on my non-gmail account. 

But since I already have my Google Voice on my other account, I wouldn't be able to move it with my number and so forth.

How can I transfer my Voice account from the old one to the new Google Apps account?

If you are the administrator of the Apps account you need to transition your apps account, if you are not the administrator then they'll need to Transition.

If it's been done, you can still use the form
http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=cjlWRDFTWERkZEIxUzVjSmNsN0ExU1E6MA
to transfer the number. I don't see why it wouldn't work.
(at least, that's what the form claims)

Hello,
I tried the form that a few people posted here, but I don't think I have the pin number.  Is there a way to reset the PIN or such?  I think I guessed wrong the first time.  Any help, please.

Thanks
