    i think this is the popup that appears saying that automatic voice mail setup is not supported by the carrier. meaning if people calls your Verizon number and you don't pick up, it will forward it to Google Voice so you can use their Voice app for visual voice mail. i think this is the setup that popup is talking about.

    i'm not sure if Verizon has a feature to forward to a different number if you don't pick up the phone, but if you use your Google Voice exclusively anyways, it doesn't matter.

    Your correct. That is the message I get. Then I have someone call my number and leave a message to see if it comes through and it don't.

    you have to go to your Google Voice account on your computer and on the upper right hand corner, click on settings. you have to manually activate the phone number there. under the settings menu, under your Verizon phone number, click on edit and then click on "show advanced settings". at the bottom is "forwarding options". when you click activate, it will display a set of numbers that you have to dial on your phone's keypad. for me, it asks me to dial *71########## where ### is my Google Voice number.
