    Update: I did a factory reset on the phone and it still doesn't work. Is there a way to install some version of Android other than 2.0.1, or at least re-install a copy from the internet?

    2nd update: I downloaded a copy of Android 2.0.1 from google and installed using the sdcard upgrade method. This didn't work either.

    I just don't get it. It couldn't possibly be a hardware issue. This is very frustrating because I can't get support from Verizon, Motorola, or Google on this issue.

    At least I've still got 29 days to return the phone...maybe before then 2.1 will come along and solve all my problems.

    Google is the only one responsible for giving you support because it's their product. And Google has no customer support.

    Even if you could go back to 2.0.0 it wouldn't make a difference. Your just not having any luck. Sorry to hear that. Google Voice works for me.

    I think you mean *72 for call forwarding to the GV number??

    I figured out that initiating a call from my contancts works fine. Previously I had just been using the manual entry keypad. Annoying but at least most of my dialing will be through GV.

    Well I think I got to the bottom of it: 10 digit dialing routes out through GV, 7 digit does not. So if I append an area code to my numbers on manual entry, it will work properly. Seems like an easy fix for Google.

    I've got a help forum thread open over at Google: Google Voice App does not work on Verizon Droid - Google Mobile Help

    Please chime in there if you're having the same issue.
