I have just signed up for my second number (1-home, 2-work). When I put in my cell number, my number was automatically unregistered from my first account.

Is this a limitation? Can you only have one Google Voice number that forwards to a cell phone? Is there a work around?

Does it matter if your Google Voice number area code isn't near you?

I love google voice, I just wish I knew a way to turn off the notifications i get from them via e-mail and text message, and only receive it from the application. Everytime I get a voice mail I hear Da-da-da droiiiiiiiidd because of mutliple notifications lol

^^ Completely agree! I get a total of 3 notifications per voicemail. One from GV, one from text, and one from email. Entirely too much.
Go to the GV website & login to your account. Go to settings then voicemail & text then the 3rd section down looks like this:
Voicemail Notifications Alert me when I have new voicemails
Email the message to: JoeBurtnette@gmail.com Add a new email address
Send a text (SMS) message to:
Mobile Add a new mobile phone

Thanks for this! I had no idea we could access GV from a website.

yeah i uninstalled and redownloaded, but i still dont get any options at all to like send a message, i go straight to inbox which is empty
Access the menu and choose Compose.

Well to clarify my frustrations, there were times I would get a missed call, and then a full 24 hours later receive a notification that I had a new voice mail.
When did you try it? I haven't had any such issues since they updated with sync some time ago. I've really had nothing but good experiences with GV.

Only if it matters to you.

I use it all the time to send & receive SMS from my PC. Can't beat a IBM Model M for typing IMO. Also great for placing calls. There's quite a bit you can do via your PC (including many more settings, etc).

No, and in some ways, that may be better. Inter-LATA long distance calls are almost always cheaper than intra-LATA ones, so it may be cheaper for more of your contacts when calling you.

According to Droid-Life google voice is now available to anyone, no longer do you need an invite.
Missed the thread title and the very first post, didn't you?:icon_ poke:

haha good one mikes, nah i didnt see the thread on the front page and being so excited I just posted the new thread so they moved my thread over to this one ;) hard to pay attention to all this good news between google voice and slingplayer all in a 24 hour window.

How did you manage to sign up in the first place? The invite sends you to the google voice web page to sign up!

I barely remember going to a website for the initial set up, then I DLed the app for my Droid and have managed GV from there ever since. Stupid assumption but I assumed I could perform the same tasks from the app.

The only problem I have with GV is that it's accessible to everyone now! :)

No, seriously. I put in for an invite back in January (didn't even own my droid yet!) and promptly forgot about it. Last week I get the welcome email and I think "wow, I'm part of the priviliged elite now!".

Aaaaand they open it up to the public a few days after that. Thanks for taking the wind out of my sails Google! :icon_evil: :icon_evil:
