Shouldn't this explanation mention the reason for this comic? Google updating Google Voice for the first time in 5 years? [1] 22:14, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes and thanks. I will add this now. --Kynde (talk) 14:55, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

I've definitely seen this comic before. Deja vu? OfftheRails (talk) 20:56, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Yep 1254 has been linked in the explanation. --Kynde (talk) 14:55, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

“Also White Hat never actually answers the question originally posed by Cueball.” – AFAIS he should use the #2 (the Google voice one). --DaB. (talk) 20:58, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

He sort of does answer the question: The Google voice number should be used. This is number 2, since 1 is cell, 3 doesn't do texts (Google voice does), 4 is obsolete, and 5 is work. 06:34, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes as DaB said. I have corrected the explanation and made it clear the Google Voice is #2. --Kynde (talk) 14

"Another reason I never call people." I can't remember any previous reason given, can anyone else? -- 10:33, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Typical Randall to make it a list and not give you all the item. Did it with the bad projection last week, and he has done do in other cases like a long list of reasons for doing something, where you only see a small section of the list. --Kynde (talk) 14:55, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

The statement in the explanation that most cell phones can't save such detailed information is incorrect. Android and iOS both allow setting custom types for phone numbers. 12:09, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Agreed and have corrected this. --Kynde (talk) 14:55, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
