I can't get the link to work, but can I use Handcent in place of the Google Voice app even if I still use a regular number as well? (I use my cell number and GV)

Default "Press 1 to accept this call"? [Google Voice]

Hey all. Got my EVO 3D recently. I received a phone call from my friend asking to play Call of Duty with him. However, upon picking up the phone, I received a "Press 1 to accept this call" thing. This happened on my Samsung Intercept as well. I don't know what's causing this, but it's really bothering me, as many times I will get the phone to my ear in time to hear the message, then pulling away to press 1, then getting it back to my ear to hear them hanging up for not answering.

TL;DR What's making it give me the "Press 1 to accept call" message, and how can I fix it?

IF you log onto your Google voice account online, you can go into the options section and disable the call screening feature, which is what the press 1 to accept call choice is. If enabled it lets you listen as the person leaves the voicemail and gives you the choice to pick up the call just like a home answering machine does. It's easy to disable from your Google voice account. At least that's what worked with my Evo, and my wife's Evo Shift, and my son's Optimus. I personally love Google voice.

I had the same problem at first with GV taking over my text messages. It's because of the Sprint integration with GV. All you have to do is go to your google voice account, Settings, and then phones. Click 'Deactivate Google Voice on your Sprint phone." Then click "Activate google voicemail on this phone" and follow the instructions.

This will let you go back to only getting transcribed voicemails without the whole SMS takeover, or having to press 1 when you receive a call, though that can be turned off under "screen phonecalls" setting.

I love you. That has been bothering me for weeks now. Finally, I have more than 10 seconds to answer the phone!

Default google voice needs to leave my texts alone...

I'm probably just whining about my own inability to get the settings right. But im surprised at how unintuitive this is being; and I don't seem to he alone.

I just want:
1) a simple notification from gv when someone leaves a vmail, no text
2) handcent, and only handcent, to notify me of and deal with texts

Is that too much to ask?

Still trolling for the answer...

yea that is weird. I would prefer to get a notification in the status bar or something, but the text is overkill. Maybe I will get used to it.

In Google Voice (in the PC browser) you should be able to disable text notifications for voicemails. Do you not see this option?

Default Phone not answering calls directly

Whenever I answer a phone call, I have to use the dial pad to accept the call after pressing answer. Is there any way to disable this?

Can't change it now, all you can do is as the last member mentioned you have to go log into GV and go to settings and phone settings, calls, call screening off

There are tons of advantages, for me anyway, for using GV and they are listed below... but, if you just want to disable the call screening or the text messaging you can go into your GV account from a browser, preferably a PC browser, you can click on the Cog in the upper right hand corner to access the voice settings.




To disable the "1" to answer call screening feature:




To enable/disable texts for calls:



I personally think there are several advantages to using GV.
  • I can log into my GV account at work and I don't even need to touch my phone to text, or listen to voicemails.
  • I can archive text messages and not use any of my phones memory,
  • I can set the do not disturb and I won't receive any calls for the amount of time I set it for,
  • I can screen calls by pressing 2 (instead of 1) and then stay on the line and listen them leave the voicemail, and if I want to pick up while they leave the voicemail, I just hit *, this lets me choose to take the calls I want,
  • I can also record calls if I need to just by pushing 4 and stop recording by hitting 4 again.

Of course, some people will like this others don't.

You can do all of this without having to have Google Voice take over the Android phone. I use Google Voice, but I keep a clear line of separation from my Sprint number. I still have these benefits because for most calls I give away my GV #.

I agree. I did that as well before the GV + Sprint integration. Personally, I like the integration better. I like having just the one number.

Welcome to Android Forums! You must have activated Google Voice to your phone.

    2. Search for the contact you want to customize, and select the checkbox next to the name.
    3. Click the Edit Google Voice Settings link.
    4. Under 'When this contact calls you:' select the phones to ring by clicking the Edit link.
    5. Click Save.
  • To record a custom voicemail greeting for a specific contact:

And this is for Groups if any want wants to know.

For groups

  • There are two ways to adjust your group phone settings:
    • Click the gear icon at the top of the page, click Voice settings, and select the Groups tab. To set what phones should ring for each contact group, click the Edit button each group and view the When people in this group call you section. Click Save if you make any changes.

Click Edit Google Voice Settings, and click the Edit button under the group you wish to customize. In the When people in this group call you section on the page that appears, view the phones that ring when someone from the contact group calls your Google number and edit your settings, if needed. Click Save if you've made changes.
  • To record a custom voicemail greeting for a specific contact group:
    1. Click the gear icon at the top right of any page, and click Voice settings.
    2. Select the Groups tab on the Settings page.
    3. Click the Edit button under the appropriate contact group.
    4. Click the Record New link in the When people in this group go to voicemail section.
    5. Enter the name for the greeting you're going to record and click OK.
    6. A Record Greeting box appears. Select the phone you want to call to record the greeting, from the Phone to ring drop-down menu.
    7. Click Connect.
    8. Pick up the call and record your voicemail greeting when prompted to do so.
    9. Once you've recorded your voicemail greeting, make sure the voicemail greeting you want to play is selected from the Greeting drop-down of the selected contact group.
    10. Click Save.

If you want to disable the GV integration here is how.


To disable carrier integration:
If you turned on integration and changed your mind, follow these steps to disable it:
  • Log in to your Google Voice account
  • Click the gear icon in the top-right corner and click Voice Settings
  • Under “Phones” click “Disable integration” next to your integrated line.
Mind you, carrier integration is NOT number porting (I was nervous about this myself) but rather a mutual hand-off of who is routing and handling the incoming/outgoing call path.

I rooted my phone a few days ago and noticed that when Sprint had to refresh my account I had lost the call forward for no answer transfer to the Google Voice mail, now I want to activate that again and I forgot the *28 number does anyone know it, when I log online it does not show those options anymore, I do not want to integrate my phone with GV.

OK researched Hi and Dry and could not find that number anywhere, so I called Sprint and explained to her that I did not want to integrate with sprint and GV, she told me there was another way to do it, use *74 followed by your GV number and it does the same thing. to deactivate hit *740 Hope this helps others not wanting to integrate there service with GV

OK from researching more looks like *28 does still work, instead of using a number that was assign,you now use your own GV number, so they both work now, *28 and *74, here is more info below

  1. Busy (*74/*740)
  • Turn on just Conditional Call Forward - Busy
    • Dial *74 plus the 10-digit number you are forwarding your calls to (e.g. *555-555-5555).
    • Press Talk.
    • You should hear tones, then the call will disconnect. Your calls will now forward to the 10- digit number you entered for when your mobile number is busy.
  • Turn off Conditional Call Forward - Busy
    • Dial *740
    • Press Talk
    • You should hear tones, then the call will disconnect. All your calls will begin ringing on your phone again.
  1. No Answer (*73/*730)
  • Turn on just Conditional Call Forward - No Answer
    • Dial *73 plus the 10-digit number you are forwarding your calls to (e.g. *555-555-5555).
    • Press Talk.
    • You should hear tones, then the call will disconnect. Your calls will now forward to the 10-digit number you entered when you do not answer your phone.
  • Turn off conditional Call Forward - No Answer
    • Dial *730.
    • Press Talk.
    • You should hear tones, then the call will disconnect. All your calls will begin ringing on your phone again.
  1. Busy/No Answer (*28/*38)
  • Turn on BOTH Conditional Call Forward - Busy and No Answer
    • Dial *28 plus the 10-digit number you are forwarding your calls to (e.g. *555-555-5555)
    • Press Talk.
    • You should hear tones, then the call will disconnect. Your calls will now forward to the 10-digit number you entered when your mobile number is busy or you do not answer your phone.
  • Turn off Conditional Call Forward - Busy and No Answer
    • Dial *38.
    • Press Talk.
    • You should hear tones, then the call will disconnect. All your calls will begin ringing on your phone again.

Found this thread and hope I can get some feedback by posting at the end of it.

Over the last few days, I have been getting phone calls from a cell number that is exactly 1 digit off from mine. I don't pick it up; it goes to voicemail. The message says "to accept the call press 1." I called the number coming through on my caller ID and the guy was clueless as to why his cell number showed up and he claimed he didn't call me.

I do not have and have never had Google Voice.

Is what I describe indicative of this other guy being one digit off in some of his Google Voice settings? Is he forwarding calls from his cell to mine because of some profile setup errors?
