So I set up Google Voice to be my voicemail provider on my phone.
The first time I did it directly on the site and followed the instructions.....THEN I went to the phone and actually changed it in the Voicemail provider settings (there is a spot for it)
When called it still made me put in my voicemail #.
So I started the process over again.
This time I set up my verizon voice mail with the phone number and the ",****" for the pause and the password. Then i told it to use google voicemail.
Then I went into google voicemail and set up the phone again.
Voila....it automatically puts in my password for me now. Although on the phone it doesn't show that its there at all.
There doesn't seem to be a reason to switch the setting on the phone as the voicemail indicator in "messages" doesn't change.....and also It doesn't seem to be able to set up the true visual voicemail through it.
You have to use the Google Voice app to get them and just search through your mails. (If anyone has a way around that one I'd be grateful - for both the message indicator and the visual voicemail)
Change the voicemail number in the settings. E.g. if your password is 1234 put *86,,,1234#, (, is pause - you must put a pause after the # - otherwise it won't work) I have tried that advice and still cant get it to work. I have put from 1 to 4 pauses inbetween the 86 and the passcode. That still isnt working. I hear no attempt for the phone to put in the passcode.
When I attempt to set my voicemail greeting, it first asks me to set a 4-7 digit password, then hit #. If I hit # without entering digits, it says "# is not recognized". The user manual clearly states "Sprint recommends you set a password, otherwise anyone who finds your phone can access your voicemail." That implies you don't have to set a password. So how do I tell it I don't want a password, and let me move on to the greeting recording?
I can not find a way to enter my voicemail password for the Call Voicemail button on the phone dialer. I have the password set in the voicemail settings and it works fine from contacts and by voice command. Where does this button get set from?
I got the Droid yesterday, and I'm trying to use Google Voice *just* for voicemail. However, it seems like I never get notifications about new voicemail, unless the app is open. Also, recorded voicemail is very soft when it's played back, almost too soft to hear.
In my notification bar at the top of my screen it says i have 1 voicemail. This notification also pops up when i turn my phone back on from being locked. However, when I check my voicemail, I do not have a new message or any saved messages either. Whats going on and how do I get rid of it?
I'm new to android but just used the guides at this forum to root my LG Optimus V. I was wondering if now that I have root there is a way to install a boot password similar to the one I have on my computer. Before it loads the operating system, the BIOS asks for a password. Is there any similar functionality for android?
Also, is this possible on other devices even if it is not on mine? It's one of my favorite laymen security measures.
Is there any app that instead of the voicemail going to the network it gets stored on my phone? It end ups costing me quite alot (0.102 a minute and theres a minimum charge, so even if i have a 30 second call it'll still charge me 10.2p). So if there was an app that saved me a couple of quid a month, that would be amazing. i've got a HTC Desire on T-Mobile (uk)
It is asking me for a password and I havent set anything up, I have the service, i got the everything plan, i just dont know how to get into it, i just got my droid yesterday and it is amazing, the best phone made in the history of phones, this throws alexander graham bell out of the water
Ive got this phone almost how i want it. it reminds me every 2 minutes (vib. or ring) for a missed text and a missed call. but i got no reminders if ive got a voicemail (other than flashing LED's that are no help when the phone is in my pocket). ive looked for apps with no luck.
Just got G-Voice and at this point, all I want to do is use it for visual voicemail. During setup, it asked me if I wanted to use my carrier's service or Google's service. I chose Google at which point I had to call a provided number that seems to initiate forwarding?
Anyway, just wondering what would happen if I choose Verizon's service instead of Google? Do you still get visual voicemail?
I've set up customized voice mails for some of my contacts. The problem is my GV is defaulting to the option that answers "Please enter the number you are trying to reach." Even when my wife enters my real number she doesn't get her customized greeting. Initially when I started GV it would default automatically to her customized voice mail. I'm not sure how to make this go back to the way it was. I hate to have everyone who calls me to re-enter my number in order to reach me.

The advantages of SIPdroid over symbian built-in SIP support lured me into the android-land, but I'm sort of missing two apps which I got used to on symbian: one to record all my phone calls (tho no symbian app could record SIP calls, only cell-phone calls) and the voicemail machine (where the app would pick up a call after pre-determined amount of time, then play greeting and then would record a caller's message). And I don't want to shell *monthly* fees for either of these, nor can I use GV for my voicemail.
