That's done on some Google products, but not all.  Many actually want to
verify that you own a real business number.  They also won't accept a
prepaid cell for these services.

This is a major metro in LATA 666, one of the cheapest rate centers.

I've had a few discussions off-list with people from the list.  I
especially want to acknowledge the two people from 360 and Zayo who helped
a lot.  We all tend to think that the next step I should try is setting
CNAM and directory listing for a number and have the customer try again
once that's in place.
