Too Many Rings Google Voice Voicemail on AT&T Phone
I installed Google Voice on my AT&T HTC One X+ (Jelly Bean 4.1.1) and installed the Google Voice App. I disabled the AT&T Visual Voicemail and AT&T Messages apps.
I add the cell number to my Google Voice account. I went through the process to enter the code to forward voicemail on my phone to my Google Voice number.
** I selected the option in Advanced Settings for the cell number to "go directly to Voicemail" in Google voice **
However, when I call my cell, it rings 5 times, then forwards to Google Voice, then rings 5 times before the Voicemail picks up, so it takes 10 or 11 rings to get to my voicemail!
I used a separate phone and called my Google Voice number directly and it takes 5 rings before voicemail picks up.
It seems that Google Voice for some reason isn't recognizing my cell as a forwarded to voicemail call and is treating it like a normal call.
