Any idea if they plan on making it Push notification ?
Are you under the impression that (a) Google voice is primarily an app devoted to supporting notification of phone calls or (b) that Verizon's voice mail supports instant notification?
I agree that instant notification would be ideal but since I have (not infrequently) gotten notification of my Verizon voicemail three days to three weeks after a phone call, I'm extremely satisfied with the notification sent by Google Voice.
I see, yea that is a bit odd being that it's all google's system... I just get notified of a missed call and then i just check my voicemail in case, but yea why refresh every 5 mins, why cant it just know...
