    Hey guys I have google voice. I'm trying to set it so each caller had a custom voicemail greeting. Its not working. When a caller calls it asks them to enter my phone number and pin. But when I open it on a browser and click on the contact then hit play it plays the custom greeting. Any ideas?

    Alright I got it to work. Now I have another question. Its sending the voice mails in a email and I have to open them in like my music player. I want them to be sent to the phone like before where I call and listen to them. How do I do this?

    I am not 100% sure as I use google voice application to listen to my messages. But I think way bakc in the day to access google voicemail without teh app you called your google voice number from your phone.

    I would highly recommend the Google Voice Application though

    Instead of checking your voicemail through email, launch the Google Voice app on your phone. If you want to stop receiving email (and instead let Google Voice app notify you when you have a voicemail), go to the Google Voice settings, then on the "Voicemail & Text" tab in the Voicemail Notification section uncheck the option that reads "Email the message to:".

    In the settings to the Google Voice app you can choose to have voicemails play back through the phone earpiece or the speaker.

    Listening to your voicemail (or reading the transcript) through the Google app has the advantage of using your unlimited data, not your call minutes (calling voicemail uses minutes).

    If you want to call into your voicemail and listen to your messages (the way the carrier's voicemail normally operates), then you can call your Google Voice number from a phone that's registered with your Google Voice account (presumably your mobile phone is), and enter your PIN. You can select a PIN on the Google Voice settings just below the Voicemail Notification section I explained earlier in this post.

    I don't have the option of the earpiece or speaker. Why is that?
