I live in Canada and wanted to get a Google Voice telephone number but the Google Voice web site knew that my PC had a Canadian IP address. Because of this, GV allows you to set up an account but will not display the option to get an actual GV telephone number.
I downloaded the 32 bit Tor from https://www.torproject.org/download/dow ... sy.html.en
, extracted it and went into its' directory (tor-browser_en-US ) and edited the 'torrc' file found in the /Data/Tor diectory by adding the following 2 lines:
The first line forces a US IP address.
The second line, I believe, forces a failure if there is no US IP address available. (not sure about this & don't think it is required.
I saved the file and then opened the "tor-browser_en-US" directory & clicked the "start-tor-browser" file. The Tor browser opened and I seached for "Google Voice" and started a new account set up - GV now thought that my PC was in the USA as indicated by the American flag in the "Mobile phone number" entry box.
That is all that I have tried with Tor - it does alot more.
