    Trying to setup Google Voice as my Voicemail service on my Nexus but I get "Unfortunately your network carrier is currently not supported for automatic voice mail configuration. Please see our Help Center blah blah". On my Droid X, this is normally when I'd call that long number.

    Anyone else having this problem? I'd really like to use GV Voicemail over Verizon's. And the hell if I'm going to pay $2.99 for their VVM.

    Edit: Went into GV via the browser and clicked the link to active voicemail on my phone and it told me to just call that special number (*71[gv#]) as usual. My phone now directs to GV Voicemail, there's just no way to configure it's setting via the phone.

    You can still use it - what that message means is that VZW won't automagically set up the phone to forward to Google Voice THROUGH its user interface - instead, you need to do something like a *720 on your phone to no-answer/busy forward to your GV Number. Everything else should still work.

    If my previous phone was set up to use Google Voice, do I need to call *720 for the Galaxy Nexus?

    no, because the forwarding is for the line. probably won't hurt to redo it, tho...

    I don't see anywhere in the setup menus to set GV as your voicemail. It was there in GB where you had to set it. It does bring up all of my voicemails already, just not sure it's set as my voicemail.

    Had the same issue coming from the Bionic to the Nexus. I had a friend test it after that message and everything works fine! I didn't re do any activation other than the Google Voice setup.

    I would double check that in your Call settings that Google Voice is your voicemail provider though.

    Please tell me where do I go and how do I start installing, settingup and using Gmail Voicemail.
    I am interested in recording my email msgs rather then typing them.
    Not necessarily get voice email though it won't hurt. Thanks!
