Topic Wiki

Google Voice may save a number as a home number, and in that mode it will not allow you to forward messages. In order to change that there's an option in legacy site.

google voice help
« on: December 14, 2011, 10:29:59 AM »
I downloaded the app for Google.voice on my phone (sprint HTC EVO) and it has this annoying feature that once you press talk then it says to answer press one... Does anyone know how I can get rid of it??

I actually like that feature. It gives me the 3 seconds I need before talking to someone. I use this line my business line.

Unless you want your messages to go to your cellphone's voicemail, then keep the screenig on. I also like to have it so I know if the person calling called my cell or GV.

I believe that in that case, if you don't answer then it forwards to Google voice. Where have you been receiving your voicemails as of late. Do they appear on you GV account?

I find that interesting that your outgoing texts are not there, are you sure?

Take that back, the way it is setup outgoing texts need to be sent from the site or an app to show up as coming from GV. (probably to avoid confusion as it would look like you sent it to a different number - whatever, its complicated; it probably could be done I don't know why they don't /end rant)

Yes it's call screening off besides for when I get a click in middle of a phone call it tells me who's calling
