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.

Is it possible to have a google voice # forward to someone's cell phone, but play the google voicemail recording if the person doesn't answer?
What if you have it set to ring on the other phone, instead of forward?

I'd think that covers what you're looking to do.

I have that by having GV at fewer rings than the VM

I think it's already set like that:

Makes sense. I can't find where to set how many rings GV goes for - any ideas?

Yes,
Fwd the cell phone to the GV #.
For Verizon dial on cellphone *7thenareacodeandphonenumber (like that, don't dial *7 and then dial phone #)

We don't want the cell phone to forward to GV, since the GV number is rarely used and we want to be able to change whose cell phone it forwards to.

The cell phone will still work regualrly. You will just accomplish having the GVmail on your cell phone.

No, verizon.

It's ridiculous that you can't show more than 10 results per page.
Get someone to write a quick script for you to automate it.
