I've been searching around the net and browsingthe APIs to find a way to forward an incoming phone call to voice mail, but with no success so far.I know it can be done since some apps do it already. I also know that blocking an incoming phone call is not possible yet and is an issue Google devs are working on.In the app i'm coding, I easily manage to detect an incoming phone call by listening to the phone state. But I cant make the phone NOT ring and NOT show the incoming phone call screen.I' ve tried to cut off the network via a ServiceState object, but that doesn't seem to work.
Loving my new desire but its got one strange bug, for instance , when my gf calls me 'o2 network', the call goes strait to my voice mail, i was blaming her new phone as u do lol but when i called my phone using her handset, my phone dident ring and it went strait to my voice mail , woulent mind we were both in the same room, i did this a few times and it would connect fine but the odd time it failed to connect, checked signal and that was fine , so cant be the problem, anyone else had this problem?
First off I've got to say the 2.1 upgrade really improved my phone's speed and completely fixed the dialer lag I used to have. I'm very satisfied. My only issues are 2 small problems: 1. My ring tone (same as before upgrade) fades if I pick up the phone to answer it....if I leave the phone on the counter it plays normally. 2. Where is the "send call to voice mail" option? I don't get that option anymore when saving a call to contacts.
One thing I've noticed with my HTC Hero (Sprint) is that I have a very short period of time to answer an incoming call before the caller is directed to voice mail. When I do answer the phone people are routinely telling me that it rang 4 or more times before I answered even though, from my perspective, I answered it rather quickly. Could this have something to do with using downloaded ringtones? Perhaps, while the phone should be ringing, instead, it is loading the ringtone off the sdcard.
I'm looking for a call log widget and a voicemail widget which look like the default mail app widget.That is, a simple small widget which show me the number of missed calls (if it's the call log widget) or the number of voicemails received (if it's the voicemail widget), just like the mail widget shows the number of emails received.
I use Google Voice (love it) primarily because of it's visual voicemail on my Droid. I do have a Google Voice number, and I'm trying to decide whether to set the Droid app to "make calls using Google Voice" or not.
I have no problem with giving out a different number, and my placed calls seeing the GV number in caller ID.
My question is, does this affect how the call is actually connected, from a quality standpoint? I tired a call both ways, and the sound quality seemed a little bit different. But then, I am an obsessive compulsive weirdo.
Is there any difference in call quality or routing between making a native Verizon call and a Google Voice call on Droid? (Like, does Google voice actual use 3G to connect to Google server over the internetz, then place the phone call?)
Is there an app out there that allows me to assign different ringtone for different events like SMS, mail, voice mail....etc. is there a way to modify the XML file for this? currently there is only ONE notification sound for all events.
I changed the voice mail number from *86 (version default) to my Google voice number. This works when I am not answering the phone and I the caller gets connected to my GV account. But when my phone is not in coverage the caller gets my version voice mail. Appreciate if someone can correct my settings or suggest any app that does it. I am from Windows mobile world and missing those settings when you can define several settings for voice mail (unanswered, rejected, unavailable etc...)
I tried searching for the question I'm about to ask and didn't find any threads so here it goes. Can someone post the steps to setting up Google Voice as visual voice mail for the Captivate? I know it's probably something very simple but I just can't figure it out ( yes, I'm a bit slow ).
I've been using Nimbuzz and fring to make a voice call but fring does not support skype anymore and Nimbuzz somehow mutes itself. I wonder what other BH2 users use to make a voice or video call. If would be really helpful if someone can let me know. I'm in a long-distance(9000km) relationship.
Looks like Phone Fusion pulled it off first and for free.... Works ok still a little buggy for me and they have to put an option to turn off the damn sms but otherwise looks good to me... anyone else have any takes on it? http://webworkerdaily.com/2008/03/19/phonefusion-adds-visual-voicemail/
Once upon a time, I set up Google Voice as the voicemail agent on my phone. Now I really regret it.Every time a get a voicemail now, I receive two text messages and an email and it's annoying.So I went to call settings and changed the voicemail from Voice back to "Carrier" and I also removed the Voice number and put back the default voicemail number.Nothing has changed! Any ideas?I am running Froyostone on an HTC HD2, which may complicate things.
Why is it that my stinkin voice mail deletes any and all messages after 4 days? This never happened to me before I got a "smart phone" Really? Is there no way to change this extremely annoying setting?
This is driving me crazy. How do I clear voice mail notifications? Let me explain what I do. Of course the first thing is listening to the voice mail. Then I delete it. The notification is still there. When I open the notifications area I see voice mail pending. It's the same voice mail that I already listened and deleted. I click the voice mail icon and it tells me there is no voice mail. Then I go to settings, calls, and there is an option to clear voice mail notification, but is grayed. I can't do anything there. The only thing I can do is turn the phone off and back on. That is the only way I can clear the notifications area. There should be a better way. Anyone has the same problem?
Quick question and I was wondering if its been happening to any of you. When I get a new voice mail, there is no alert appearing at all in the "Messages" app on the home screen. Is there a setting somewhere to fix this or perhaps my voice mail is just hosed? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Update: Ive noticed I've been getting some weird text messages since getting this phone. I did a Google search and found this: Gibberish Text instead of New Voice Mail Notification on TP2 - Verizon | Forums and Blogs - Verizon Community Has this happened to anyone else? Maybe this is my problem?
Don't know how to explain this or if anyone else have or heard of this problem? But when i listen to my voicemails they sound like there talking into a bottle or Tin can like LoL told you would be hard to explain how it sounds LoL, just sounds funky like bad recordings or something anything i can do to make them sound better?
Someone was calling me today and it went to voicemail before I could get answering. When I called them back they said it only rang 5 or 6 times before going to voicemail. Is there a way I can get my phone to ring more times to give me extra time to answer it?
I was wondering if there was an app out there that can change my voice mail into a text for me. As I am one of those people who does not enjoy opening my voice mail and would liek to jus read a text. is there any app that is out ther (free app)
I cannot make any calls with my Incredible all of a sudden - I cannot even reach my voice mail. Every time I try to dial out there is about 10 seconds of silence followed by beeps and then the message on screen says "Network Status: The network is busy. Please try again later." The problem started this morning and I haven't been able to make any calls since then. I have a great network signal (3-4 bars) and I can check email, surf the web and everything. I am not aware of any update that might have caused this.
I have a voice mail from my son I've been re-saving for a couple of years now and was wondering is there anyway I can save to my droid. If I could save it is a wav file or some other format I could then move it to my comp to keep forever.
I have the voice mail notification on my home screen and for some reason, when there is a voice mail, there is no number next to it to advise me there is one. I am using Widget Locker if that matters. Everything else works with that.
