    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)

    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?

    He is calling your google voice number. Mine does this as well.

    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! :D

    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?

    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?

    are you using google voice? if so, it hijacked your phone. you can disable this under gv settings

    phone settings
    call screening off

    When you you first signed it you probably click to merge the accounts by mistake

    So how do I fix this?

    DonB ♡ Spidey Sense !! ♡ ™ Moderator

    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

    So do this from the browser, because I don't see those options from the app itself.
