    I've tried using *72 to setup call forwarding to my GV number, but I quickly realized that would just shut off calls and send them directly to my GV voicemail. Because phone A is forwarding to phone B, and phone B is redirecting to phone A, its a never ending loop. I was thinking some kind of app to use call forwarding, but is there another solution to this before I buy an app?

    You're using GV in a manner it is not designed.

    While you can forward your phone to it, there is no DID associated with it & the best case scenario has callers getting 10-12+ rings before a VM announcement.

    The technology & concept behind GV is simple - you give out the GV number, not your cell number. GV then acts like a hunt system that looks for you - at home, on the road, etc.

    When used this way - the way it is designed - it works well.

    I set up forwarding where my phone rings twice and then GV rings 5 times so the caller just hears 7 rings. I'm not sure if you can do this with Verizon but on AT&T, you can control how many seconds your phone rings before GV kicks in.

    if you are trying to make it so the call goes to GV voicemail when the call is missed use this link . it is instructions from GV to do this, so it was designed to work this way if wanted

    Are you setting this up on a VZW or AT&T?
    I kno wyou can change the number of rings thru any CSR with VZW but I don't know if it will let you control the time before GV kicks in

    I'm with AT&T. I set it for 0 seconds which is about 2 rings on my phone before GV kicks in.
