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.

The other improvement I would like to see (I don't know if it has to do with the app) would be to have the voicemails coming from a call to the Google Voice # go only to the GV mailbox, and the voicemails coming from calls made to the cell # go to the cell's voicemail.

Unless this is already doable and I'm missing something?
from which phone do you try to remove the google voice VM? Basic phone or smart phone? for smart phone, when you install google voice it asks you if you want to configure you Carrier VM to Google Voice, you can skip it, but you can still change that by going in the phone app settings, choose yuor VM service provider, change that from GV to your carrier.
from basic phone you can remove the call FWD (this is how it works with VZW)

I'm using an Android (Moto G4).

I'm not trying to remove GV voicemail; what I would like is for calls made to the GV # to never go to my carrier's voicemail.

I'm on Sprint.

how can I regulate the number of times my phone rings before going to voicemail,

online all instructions talk about adjusting it through clicking on advanced settings but I have no such option?

Has anyone had any success in using an mp3 for the Google Voice greeting? I used to be able to do this in Windows with a program that would reroute the sound that would come out of the speakers as a virtual microphone and have Google Voice call my hangouts number to record the greeting, but now they got rid of using the hangouts number to record greetings.
Any suggestions?
