Google Voice Port issue

I ported my Google Voice number to AT&T and now I am noticing errors when I sign my new number up with companies. I am interested in the security verification sms options on a lot of my accounts and for some reason the number is not allowed. It is like it is recognizing it as a VOIP but it is not anymore because AT&T has it now (cellular). Does anyone else have this issue or know of it? I would like to keep the number but if I can't sign up for the sms security option for my bank and many other accounts I have then the number is worthless now.

But to answer the question, a virtual number is going to be seen as a virtual number, and not eligible for a lot of two-factor authentications, long after it is ported to a physical service provider.
