    Ever since 2.2 update, my voicemail is being handled through google voice for some reason. I tried resetting the phone and not installing the google voice app but even then it goes to google voice voicemail.

    Anyone else notice this?

    EDIT: Figured it out. I somehow had activated google voicemail for the phone via the google voice website.

    The Google Voice voicemail transcription work as well as Google Goggles; like crap. I've tried both, and don't like either, very disappointing. I never got a transcribed voicemail that made any sense. First one I got, I thought it was a wrong number. But went back the next day and listened to the voicemail and it turned out to be a kind of important call from my doctor. Ridiculous. Glad you figured out the problem you were having, the only use I have for GV is free texting, I love that function! I won't even talk about Goggles in here, that's a different topic.

    jr,

    I had the same problem a while back after installing Google Voice. After struggling with it for a while with no success, I called Verizon.

    The nice lady I spoke with advised this sometimes happens when users install GV, she did not know why. Anyway, the change is made to your settings somehow at VZ and all she had to do was reset the voicemail settings on her end.

    Problem solved! ;)

    Good luck.
