    I have the newest Ipad and now the Iphone 5, Before the Iphone 5 I had a droid X, on the droid X through google voice I would get a text of my voicemails. it would transcribe the message and send it to me in a text or an email on my phone. I would not have to look at the tablet to get the voice mail.

    I cannot figure out how to get the voice mails to come as a text or email on the new iphone 5. Am I missing a button somewhere or something. I would hate to have to open the ipad every time to read a voice mail

    Thank you in advance

    Is there a way to set up this on the actual google voice site? I don't think there are options to change notification settings on the iPhone app.

    Yeah I don't see how it still wouldn't work. After all your voicemail is still web based so to me wouldn't see whether its set up on iPhone or android and the web service should forward either. But obviously that's not the case. Weird. And I didn't get anything forwarded to me on my android phones so really not sure how I would have set it up on those. Guess it didn't matter because d I could open my email or messaging app then I could open the voice app. But of course that's not the case for everyone.

    You need to make sure conditional call forwarding is set up on your iPhone. Instructions vary based on carrier. Just google search for iPhone google voice set up conditional call forwarding. Instructions should pop up :-)

    In google voice on the web in your settings tab voicemail and text the voicemail transcription should be checked. Not sure is this was already mentioned.

    I actually use my verizon phone number not the google number for my phone and it would transcribe the voicemails on the Droid X with my Verizon number. I use the Google number for everything else. I miss this a lot. lol it is so easy to look at the voicemail and read it and be secretive in a meeting or wherever you are and know if the voicemail needs attending to immediately or if it can wait. Calling in to get the voice mail is interruptive.

    Thank you

    At this point, I'm personally extremely disappointed in how the Google Voice app performs on this phone. Most of the time, even when I use the google voice dialer, it will not place calls using my google voice. When I installed an app to sync my google contacts onto my phone, it screwed those up to by merging numbers with different names in my google contact list. Very frustrating to say the least.

    Yeah some google apps aren't optimized for iOS and that's pretty obvious why. But you should be able to see your google contacts as they. I'm your address book you can choose which list you want to see ie google contacts, icloud, global address etc. Your numbers should show as they are on google.

    I have a 4s and my google voice operates fine, I get the texts and email and can play the recording. I did not upgrade to IOS 6 because of no JB so maybe an issue with 6 but would think it should still work if your settings are right.

    Care to elaborate on the settings? From everything that I can see, my calls should be going out via Google Voice but, that only happens sometimes.

    I'm not exactly sure about the calls since I never used google voice to make calls. But in regards to your contacts problem when you're in the contacts app if you click on groups at the top you'll see the various sources where your contacts came from. By selecting your google ones you should see them as they are on google and not messed up. You can also do this from within google voice app. Uncheck those sources you don't want to see as they can result in several duplicates.

    The app for ios download and the settings in the app are basic, account, password, select this phone. Then your settings in your google account are the regular set up utilizing your reg cell number.
