    I just set up my Google voice number, so now I have my google voice number (for work related calls) and my verizon number for personal calls. My question is, how do I get call screening to work? I went to my google voice settings on my computer and enabled it, but then when I tested it out (by calling my google voice number) it doesn't ask me for my name.

    Did you call yourself from one of your own numbers, or from a different phone number? I had to use a co-worker's phone to test a few things out.

    Does anyone know what the actual script is that the automated voice says when it is performing call screening?

    It won't screen known numbers, IIRC. Anyone tried *67?

    Have you tried a soft reset or hard reset?

    You can customized your call screening system into the kind that would conform to your answering rules. You can set up list of contacts where in calls not included in the list are automatically direct into your voice mail box.
