What to Know When Deleting a Google Voice Number
Once your number is deleted, you can’t receive calls or text messages on the number. You can still view your call and message history, though.
After deleting a number, if that was the only number in your account, you have up to 90 days to reclaim that number if you want. Then the number is gone forever.
Remember that you can’t delete your Google Voice number if you’re a Voice for Google Workspace user.
