I was using google voice for awhile, until I started to get reports from people that were never transferred to voicemail. So I went ahead and started paying the 2.99 a month for visual voicemail. So far it's been pretty cool, and one can save the voicemail to your sdcard... No issues with calls not being sent through..
Dumb question maybe, but do you flash roms? I often have to reset GV as the default voicemail after flashing a new rom. I've never had an issue with GV not picking up.

Couldn't you forward existing voicemails to your GV account? Never tried it just curious.
Google Voice is a pretty good solution if it works for you. I actually created a service myself that allows you to record voicemails (and any other phone calls for that matter) and download them as mp3. I do charge, but it's super cheap... and you only pay for the recordings you want. Check it out: http://www.savethatcall.com
Youmail is free and works really well. I use the youmail app which will notify you in multiple ways including an email or text message. I like that I can access voicemail from the email and then download and save the message too.

We'll save your voicemails to MP3 for only $34.99...or mail you a CD for $47.49!
Super Easy Guys!
1. While the voicemail is playing on my droid, I click MENU and then FORWARD
2. I forward the voicemail to my email address
3. It's a WAV file and I can "save as" to my computer
I tried this for months and finally solved my issue of two years of voicemails. You need three things 1)A skype account and the skype software on your desktop 2)MP3 Skype Recorder 3.1-a free software availabe from CNET 3)Audacity software-also free and available from CNET.
You will need to call your voicemail from Skype and let the recording software record all the messages you want to keep as you skip through them. This will save a large file to the place you have designated and will save it as an MP3 file. After you are done, hang up and you file will be saved. Then, import this file into the Audacity software (file, open, find the file). Using the Audacity software, you can cut each individual message from the recording and save it to your computer (the easiest thing to do is to cut, save and the use the "undo" feature to return the remaining messages to the file, then go on to the next message and repeat).
This solution gives the highest quality. I didn't notice ANY quality loss from my cell phone to my computer the way I did with other methods.
Best of luck!
Agh, why is this so difficult? Unfortunately, Google Voice won't work for a 2006 voicemail I saved from my mom.
Never tried this. Why didn't I see this before!?!?

In this day and age, it's ridiculous that they make saving voicemails so difficult.
