How to forward your cell phone to your Google Voice phones before going to Voicemail.

So I decided the other day that I really don’t like getting voice mail on my phone. So I opted to forward my voice mail to my Google Voice account, I find it much more convenient to check my voice mail online, but after activating the feature in my Google voice settings, I discovered something even better than simple voice mail forwarding.

As you can see from the image Google Voicemail is activated on my mobile phone, if its not enabled on yours the link will enable you to activate it. Google will provide you a string of symbols and numbers to enter into your cell phone to enable your phone to forward its calls to Google in the event you do not pick up instead of going to voice mail.

However after enabling Google Voicemail on your phone if you click the edit button you will see a new option at the bottom of the page, Forwarding Options. witch will allow you to ether have calls you do not pick up on your mobile forwarded directly to Google Vociemail or have the call foarded to all your other phones first. In my case this means ringing to my Skype account first. The other day I left my phone in my living room while I was working at my desk, I never heard my phone ring but I still got the call once it was patched over to my Skype account.

So if your a Google Voice user, go check out this feature and let me know what you think of it.
