Google Voice SMS not working

D

I put in my Google Voice number to receive text messages, but when I click the test link, I do not receive a text. Google Voice is not listed as an option so I used "International (Not listed below)".

I don't have a problem receiving texts generally at this number. Is there something that I should be doing differently or can you fix this?

Hi There,

Try testing with both of the Canadian Send From numbers. Let me know if that helps.

Regards,
Brendon.

Google Voice help claims that SMS messages from web sites do not come through because the number is treated as an email address.

It's working. now. The first two test text messages took about 15 minutes to reach my phone. I just tested it again and it took less than 10 seconds. Thanks.
