As far as I'm aware you must use Google Voice's # for visual voicemail/text logging.
They recently allowed you to use your own number but the features are way limited then using theirs from what I understand. Can someone elaborate?
Thanks Barbara, would you mind sharing your GV settings, so I can make sure I have mine set up correctly?
I have another question again.
1. What number do I use to call and check my voice mail, google number??
2. If I delete them from the GV app on the phone they are deleted from the voice mail inbox correct?
3. Verzion dosen't charge for this correct, guess I can verify that oline in my account.
Thanks again you have been a great help
thanks, I know about the links nd how to play it, I was just wondering if there was a way to call in and listen.
You should be able to activate Google Voicemail on a certain number in your Google Voice settings under Phones. When someone calls my phone number Google Voice transcribes it for me and it goes into my Google Voicemail Inbox. I don't use the SMS or email notifications, when I see a missed call I open my GV app on my Droid and check the message there, no calls to any voicemail numbers or anything.
Yeah, I think I might need to tone it down a bit. I just tested it by calling *86 which called my voicemail. I got a notification on my computer that I had a new gmail message (notifying me of the voicemail), a notification on my phone that I had a new gmail message, a text message on my phone telling me that I had a voicemail and a notification in my notification bar that I had a voicemail. Just a bit much.
ok so i just got my google voice invite...im liking it. but what about visual voicemail? have you guys just dropped it now that you have this? and how can i get all my vmails i have saved on my visual vmail to my gvoice acccount? any way to do that? i am a HUGE fan of google lately. they are awesome. im just trying to decide how i can use these new things that they are making to their fullest capabilities.
