    What are your thoughts on buying 50-100 gvoice accounts to avoid paying for SMS's. Is it worth it? Do they have to be regularly maintained or do they go bad?

    i have ~10 and they don't need much maintenance. only 1 ever asked me to re-verify my number and it was my oldest one (5+ years). if you plan on spamming outbound sms they will put a big limit on you. you can also checkout apps like sideline, burner.

    Thanks that great to know they last that long without any issues, yeah I'm using the SMS apps you mentioned, and 1 out of 10 times I buy a phonenumber that is already blacklisted and doesn't work at all on IG... Since a # can be used twice in the same week, that over a year it could be used many times and save having to rebuy #'s constantly

    Create an account & they give you a unique phone number. You can use it to send/receive sms. You can receive calls, not sure about outbound calls: I never tried.

    I do not use them for instagram as I am not into Social media marketing. However I do use it for some other sites and it works really good.

    Awesome. How long have the accounts lasted you? Does google close them if they are inactive (only receiving PVA 6x a year)?

    I think you need to login atleast once every 2-3 months and send a sms.

    I never understood the point of google voice?

    To actually get a phone number with that service you need to connect it to a real SIM number (they block literally all virtual numbers from being able to create an account), so if you need a real SIM to get google voice, why not just use the SIM itself..?
