Google Voice Extension Question

Post by danmiller3 » Mon Feb 14, 2011 12:50 pm

Hi folks -
I have a very dumb, basic question but the documentation is just very confusing. Is it possible to have my Google Voice voicemail answer calls to my regular Ooma number? I really just want to centralize my home and cell voicemail into my Google Voice voicemail box, without any of the other bells and whistles.

Thanks,
--Dan

You have the option of using naked GV. Meaning, treat Ooma number just like another phone number like your cell, work.

But how do I get the Ooma number to ring through to GV voicemail?

Just like how forwarded calls to your cell phone ends up in Google voicemail.

Sorry if I'm being dense, but there are settings on my cell phone that I configure to send calls to GV Voicemail when someone doesn't answer. I don't have those same settings on my Ooma device unless I'm missing something.

I think you need to provision your GV to have call screening on.
