Re: Press 1 to answer call?
To expand Dub-J's post, it may seem annoying, however it can be incredibly useful and cool if you understand how it works.

If i am work, and don't want to use my phone's batter talking on the phone, i can just use my work phone. If I am at home and my cellphone is in another room, i can use my house phone.
Using this system, it is possible to turn off your cellphone at work, and receive phone calls during the workday on your business phone. For text messages, you can handle all your text messages through google.com/voice. You could then choose to turn your phone back on at the end of the day.
The "press 1 to answer", is indicate that you want to receive the call on that particular phone, rather than any other phone associated with your google voice number.
