    Setting up google voice

    Hey guys, I've had a moto droid, htc incredible, another moto droid, and now im on the moto droid x! I have a google voice account and im trying to set it up as we speak. I downloaded the app on my x and its working fine, but everytime I press the "call voicemail" button on the dialer (same as dialing *86), it literally goes to my voicemail saying to leave a message rather than the menu to check my voicemail.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks,

    Big T

    Edit: Just for some more information, i dialed that *71 number and under settings -> call settings I have google voice selected as my voicemail service.

    Under that cell number > Show advanced settings > voicemail access.

    Sounds like that setting is set to NO?

    No, I have it on YES. Do you have the X? When you dial *86 does it bring you to google voice???

    Just followed the guide... same problem though. When i use the voicemail hotkey on the dialer it just goes to my voicemail, not my google voice

    I think you have to have the gv app to check your voicemail.

    I get the same thing. The contact doesn't update with the GV number it seems, but GV still works. When you get a new voicemail in the notification bar it links correctly though.
