    im trying to set up google voice for my visual voicemail and im having some trouble. ok, i get into my phone settings, voicemail, voicemail services, check google voice, i get a box that is titled "Error" and says change to new provider. i check yes and it thinks for a second then says forwarding numgber change failed.

    any idea what im doing wrong?

    thanks in advance for the help, im a convert from ip4s. previously had an atrix, well 4 of them, couldnt get one that would work. hated that phone, drove me away from android till now.

    Are you on at&t? I had the same problem and was just about to make a thread. I hope someone has a solution.

    I've got the AT&T version as well. downloaded the visual voicemail app in the market and its not working. Says it needs to call into my voicemail, so I let it go and...nothing. Is this what you're having a problem with also?

    i called att and they had me set visual voicemail up with the att messages app and it works. i like google voice better, but at least its there.

    I thought the solution was to set it up from a computer then do conditional call forwarding on the phone.

    ok, here is what i did. first off, do not use att's app. blech...

    go to google.com/voice and deactivate your current subscription. then resubscribe and poof... it works.

    if you have not set it up online yet, do that. like dunbar42 said.

    yea it works

    I just received a GS II Skyrocket as a warranty replacement for my old GS II. It came installed with Visual Voicemail. I started out trying to Use the Google Voice App to change over. That didn't work. I also went to the website and did the same thing you suggested. However:

    1. When someone calls and leaves a message, it goes to Google Voice. GREAT.
    2. When I hit the Voicemail button in the dialer, it takes me to AT&T's Visual Voicemail. NOT GREAT

    How do I get the Button in the Dialer to just call into Google Voice?

    Go into contacts and change the number listed for voicemail, nice and simple.

    Phone -> Call Settings->Voicemail Service (should be Google Voice) -> Voicemail Settings (Make sure your Google Voice number is here). You MAY have to go to the Google Voice website and make sure your phone is configured for Google Voice. I can tell you that GV works great on my phone.
