Unable to get Google Voicemail Working on Note 10+

Re: Unable to get Google Voicemail Working on Note 10+

Unfortunately, I don't have anyone available at this time, through Community. You may be able to get a higher level through the Tech Support Department. Since the Note 9 didn't have the VoLTE capability, and VoLTE service wasn't as wide spread at the time the Note 9 came out, I'm concerned that the Note 10 isn't going to allow it to work due to the VoLTE capability, even though it's disabled.

Re: Unable to get Google Voicemail Working on Note 10+

I see what you are saying but if that was the case I would assume it wouldn't work at all (like when you turn on Wi-FI calling)  but the fact it works if you don't answer the call and only doesn't work when you decline a call seem odd.

Re: Unable to get Google Voicemail Working on Note 10+

I agree. I wish I had more knowledge on the Google Voice service to be helpful.

Re: Unable to get Google VoiScemail Working on Note 10+

So someone on another board said the following:

 

"This behavior is actually expected. The "decline" button is generally configured/controlled by the mobile carrier (via either the SIM or via OTA (Over The Air) provisioning, to send the call to the carrier's voicemail server. In theory, that number can be changed by you, the user, but not on a Sprint phone."

 

Can you confirm if Sprint can do this?

Re: Unable to get Google VoiScemail Working on Note 10+

I don't believe Sprint does.

So we determined forwarding to VM does not work with VoLTE turned on (just like when WIFI calling turned on).   Even the rep I was working with said VoLTE wouldn't cause an issue but sure enough as soon as we turned it off everything worked including declining the call.   SO FYI, either VoLTE or Google Voice to Voicemail.  Ugh

So not sure what has changed in the last few weeks but VoLTE now works with Google Voice as your Voicemail.

Ok spoke to soon.  Seems if I ever reboot my phone I lose the call forwarding.  I have to redo the *73XXXXXXXXXX and *74XXXXXXXXXX

That sounds about right howardpm411. A reboot wipes some settings, and can turn some features off. Updates can do the same at times.

Re: Unable to get Google VoiScemail Working on Note 10+

This has never worked that way.   The * Forwarding codes are saved on Sprint server side not locally on my phone.   been using the forwarding codes for 10+ years.

Re: Unable to get Google VoiScemail Working on Note 10+

I hear ya. I'm just saying that rebooting or updating a phone could cause some features to turn off. It's not typical but can happen. For example I completed an update on my LG and the Camera was turned off, and the setting for my Pandora changed.
