Google Voice and Visual Voicemail?
Newbie here to the forums so be gentle! I love the site and have recently checked the forums. Here's my problem. I have Google Voice and love the functions but really miss the Visual Voicemail function on my iPhone. Is there any way I can use both services without jailbreaking or unlocking? It'd be real cool to still be able to use VV on iPhone as well with GV. If anyone can show me some insight I'd be eternally grateful!

If you will tel us how you have GV set up and how you want to use it. (Is GV to be your Main #, How do you want GV to handle incoming calls, etc.) That way we can know which way to point you.
Unfortunately, without JB you can not "Make" calls with GV. I am not even sure that you can make a call on GV while using WiFi? Not sure?
am i making sense? thank you!

Google voice is a google service and only fully works on jailbroken phones.
visual voicemail is an Att service only. It does not have any connection to gv calls, even when jailbroken.
there's a way to send ATT voicemail to google voice I believe but not the other way around.
1. Gv voicemail
2. visual voicemail
brickman- you can make calls without being jailbroken, go read their docs. You can make a gv call from any phone. You are right that you need a cellular connection to make calls on a cell phone. It's a call relay service, not a voip service.
