I integrated my EVO 4G with Google Voice (converting my cell phone number into a Google Voice number). Well now I am trying to disable that. I disabled it on the Google Voice website which seemed easy enough. I have even gotten a new number set up for my Google Voice account (not my Sprint Cell phone number). However, I am now having 2 problems:
1) When some one calls my phone, it now NEVER goes to voicemail. Not Google Voice, not Sprint Voicemail. It just rings forever.
2) I would like to have my cell phone be one of the numbers that rings when my new, non-Sprint Google Voice number is called. However, when I try to add it as a number, Google Voice is unable to call the cell phone number for verification. It returns an error that it was unable to make contact with the cell phone.
So I am kind of stuck. I have no voicemail of any kind and can't get a generic Google Voice number to forward to my Sprint cell phone.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
Sprint tech said it was " green " on their end and my voicemail should be working...but it's not ( busy signal)
They changed my msid number and factory reset. My number isn't being used by gv anymore
But this is googles problem...they haven't figured out how to remove our numbers once integrated.
My Echo phone will let me add content to the board, but I can't edit from my phone???? Weird.
Now I get double-text, and if I go to add a new contact on my phone I don't get an option to save that contact to the " phone "...just my gmail account...

After several hours of trying, (basically wiping out my account and re-setting it up), 14KNIGHT was able to get my voicemail working for me again, so I think that part can be resolved as JPSquared suggests.
However, I have since gotten a new Google Voice number (not my sprint number) but I am not able to simply add my Sprint number as one of the options for forwarding. When GV goes to call the number so I can enter the verification code, it never rings my Sprint phone. This almost certainly has to be a problem on Google's side, as goygacon suggests. This makes GV pretty much useless for me. I want to use it, but don't want my cell phone number to be the GV number (which is why I "un-integrated" it). But it doesn't seem that it is truly "un-integrated" on Google's end. I'd love for someone to figure this part out.
I am going to Private Message you to get some account information so I can fix this.
If anyone else needs help with this, please go ahead and also private message me your name and phone number as well. Please do not post your number to this thread, only in a message to myself or someone else with the Sprint logo under their number.
I too am having the same issue I signed up for google voice and I didnt like because I once I signed up I couldnt reivec SMS or MMS messages they were all getting forwarded to GV online, which is really stupid. I tried to delete it throught managing my application it wouldnt let me I then tried throught the market it also wouldnt let me. I finally went to GV online and disabled the account but now I dont have a voice mail at all all that happens when someone calls is it rings and rings and never goe to voicemail. I tried setting up my sprint voice mail again but when I call my voice mail the dial tone is busy so I cant set it up. I dont know hwats going on anymore, all I kow is that google voice royally srewed up my HTC Evo.
EDIT: I CALLED CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND THEY RESOLVED THE ISSUE FOR ME
