Default Carrier voicemail enabling on BB before Google Voice

Please Login to Remove!

Any way to extend or disable my Blackberry carrier voicemail so Google Voicemail is activated like my other devices? I have a Sprint blackberry Curve and since I forwarded my gv calls to it, all my voicemails are going to that device, no longer transcribed in GV.

Thanks,

Shane

Please update your profile to reflect your new device and service.

Dispensing with that, you need to adjust your timing in your GV forwarding. Sprint forwards calls to voicemail at 25 seconds I believe, so you need to have your GV stop trying at 20 seconds or so.

Can't you set your GV VM as the primary so that the VM doesn't go to the carrier?

Calling the ATT carrier support line will allow you to stall the VM call activation but it will go to a default message after 6 to 9 rings. You could try setting the call forward options for busy dont answer to the GV number.
