Default Google Voice won't work for faves, calling circles or favorite numbersfor incoming calls

I noticed that when I receive an incoming call from a Google Voice
number you get the same sort of non-number that you get with Skype on
Caller ID, or "Unknown."

So I guess you couldn't have it forward to your mobile phone with the
Google Voice number set as a faves, calling circle, or favorite number
in order to get unlimited mobile calling for a very low price.

It'd still work for outgoing calling since you call your own Google
Voice number to gain access to the system.

You must have something set wrong. Or it may vary by area code too, I
guess. If you go to the GV "settings" page, about half way down there is
an option to have caller ID display either the caller's number or your own
GV number. I'm in area code 812 and have mine set to show the GV number,
and it correctly indicates my GV number every time someone calls.

Thanks, you're right. That fixed it. I was getting "Unknown" because I
was displaying the caller's number, and caller ID was blocked. Now it
works fine.
