Anyone out there fix the issue of having your outgoing calls show up as your throwaway/pre-paid number instead of your GV when calling friends?

help please?

send them at text, and when they reply to it, you'll have a new number that google assigns them. Use this number to call them to get it to show up as google number. this might have changed but it still works for me after a year of using it

I think they are referring to the # that shows on their friend's phone. I have the same issue where if I place a call from my prepaid dumb phone it shows that number on the person's caper ID. Some of my friends have saved it but that's a potential problem as I had an instance last month where that # was used as part of a MMS chain of 40 messages which T-Mobile charges at a rate of $0.25/each. All of those were people responding and none from me. It ended up not costing me the full $10 I was expecting so I may only be charged if they download to my phone. As a side note, you can't block text/multimedia messages on prepaid lines per t-mobile's site.
