Google Voice + Talkatone (or GrooveIP, etc.) + GV Voicemail on phone
So I started using GV Voicemail after giving it a brief spin and ditching it a while back. I had a bit of a hiccup today with it (VM went to VZW VM, but I couldn't access it), but I think I have it set up correctly now.
I've been really curious about GV + VOIP solutions. I followed the sipdroid + PBXes route, but now it looks like the way to go is either GrooveIP or Talkatone, which do almost all of the setting up on their own (versus sipdroid and pbxes). I don't have any real reason that I need to use the setup, but I like to play and I'd like to know how the system works in case I were to get some out of country work out of the blue or to offer advice to associates that travel a lot.
So my question is, is there any kind of interference when you have GV + VOIP set up on your phone and you're also using GV as your voicemail provider for your cell phone number? Is there any special setting that needs to be done, or does it all just work normally on its own?
