View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lost my Google Voice account

April 25th, 2011, 10:48 PM
Two days ago, I attempted to delete one group of cookies in Firefox, but inadvertently deleted the entire cookie file!

I was then unable to access my Google Voice account. Going to a backup file from two weeks prior, I copied the whole cookie file plus the Bookmark file into Firefox, thinking that would restore things as they were. However, that did not work. Each time that I attempt to enter Google Voice, it just shows a new account with all of the contacts imported from GMail but no telephone number for me to give out for people to call me!

If anyone has any experience with this and has found a solution, I would greatly appreciate it.

Very un-scientific, but I managed to restore my lost Google Voice account. I just kept following prompts regarding alternate e-mail and alternate logins until my head was spinning.
This is not very helpful to anyone having a similar problem, but it is now solved, even though I did not document what I was doing.:D
