I setup my Google Voice number to forward to my AT&T cell phone number. There are two features of the forwarding behavior I'm not very fond of:
- When someone calls, they get a recorded voice asking for their name. People tend to assume this is voicemail, and not realize that my phone is ringing, and after they follow the instructions I will be picking up.
- When I pick up the phone, it tells me the name of the person calling and asks whether I'd like to answer the call or send it to voice mail (I'd rather it simply assume I'd like to answer so I didn't have to wait or bother with the keypad).
I don't think its relevant, but I'm using an iPhone 4. Is there anyway to setup Google Voice call forwarding which avoids either of these two issues?
