Optimus S - Can't change voicemail provider to Google Voice

In my prior experience with Android phones, when you setup Google Voice, it offers to change your default voicemail provider.  It would send you to the Settings -> Call Settings page.  Normally, you'd have a "Voicemail Service" option to select a different voicemail service than Sprint's default.  Here I'd select Google Voice.

Unfortunately, the option is blocked or missing on my LG Optimus S.  I'd like to see this fixed in a maintenance update.

I just got my LG Optimus today, and was wracking my brain to figure out what I was missing/doing wrong. I'd also like to see this fixed, ASAP! Let's hope they do...

  You just have to set it up using conditional call forwarding.

Dial *28nnnnnnnnnn where the n's are your Google Voice number.  That'll send ring-no-answer and busy calls to your Google Voice box free of charge.

You can read more about the Call Forwarding options at:
