Using Google Voice Voicemail on MetroPCS. Failed to setup.

    After having Google voice for years, I'm going to try to actually use it.

    Google Voice has an instruction page that says its possible to use their voice system instead of Metro's. Not that I have any particular complaint with the metro VM, but I want to see how it would work.

    The google page says to dial *74(my ten digit Ph#) like a normal call.

    But the weird thing is the phone sometimes responds with a verizion message and other times with a message that the call cannot be completed as dialed.

    Any one know what this means?

    yea i always skip that voicemail setup now the cool thing is if one dayu leave metro and want to keep your number you can port your number to google voice. comes really handy when too many people have your number for years and u dont want to be trying to call each one of them to tell them your new number.
