    Google Voice Questions

    Do any of you use Google Voice and canceled your text messaging/calling plans?

    And also, with Google Voice if someone calls my Google number - is there a way I can set it so it will be like calling my Verizon number? The only thing that bothers me is having two numbers. How are you guys using GV toggling between your numbers/using GV?


    Thanks you,

    Your GV number has to forward to a phone, so have it forward to your cellphone. This way if someone calls your GV number, your cellphone rings. And they can still call your old cell number as well. This way you can use GV Visual Voicemail, and all the other features.

    I just use GV for the voicemail functions. I don't call through it or give out that number.

    Best method is to get your callers to switch. If they need to reach you they'll figure out how to contact you using the GV number. The whole intent behind GV's design is to have callers using the GV number. It can be used in other ways but it's an annoyance IMO.

    I'm thinking of actually having my old numbers changed by my carriers so I can shed the callers that aren't getting it (as well as the other unwanted telemarketers, etc).

    I am still in the process of setting up my GV, got a magic jack in the mix too so figuring out what I'm doing with each is getting confusing as I just have too many phone numbers and options now. lol

    Can you only make calls using GV from the web? When I open the GV app on the Droid it brings me to my inbox and gives me no other options. When I press the menu it gives me the options of Compose (SMS), Refresh, Labels, Balance, Settings, and Help. But no option to make a phone call?

    If you have it installed, go to your home screen and add a widget. There should be one that says Toggle Google Voice. From there, you can click it and toggle between the choices to use GV # for all, none, only international. You can also go into the options and do it that way but thats more time consuming.
