How to disable GV?!

    I have Google Voice, which I recently discovered counts against my minutes when it sends me a transcript/recording of my voicemails (this is because VZ forwards calls to GV and charges for the time). I am leaving the country and the cost of calls overseas is $2/minute. I need to avoid charges for calls where people leave me voicemail messages, so I need to disable GV for the time I'm overseas. I can't figure out how to temporarily disable GV. Can someone please help? Thanks!

    I'm not sure if that worked. If I leave myself a voicemail, it does not appear on GV. But I do get a message on my phone to call my GV number to retrieve the message. Doesn't that mean that the message was forwarded by VZ to GV and therefore I'm using minutes?

    I hope it works too :)

    I don't have Verizon but that's all I could find for you.

    Go to google voice (PC) web page settings, and uncheck using your cell phone as forwarding calls to, maybe add your house phone as a forwarding option.

    On your cell phone open the Google Voice App, go menu/settings and check off the option to not use Google Voice, the green light (Button) should illuminate.
