I just purchased a Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ with Jellybean(4.1), and have an Unlimited account with Straight Talk. I would like to use Google Voice to handle voicemail for the phone.
Currently, I am using my Google Voice account as a SIP provider for my Obi100 internet phone appliance, but I am using the phone's aswering machine rather than GV to handle missed calls, and I have the Google Voice account set up to act as the phone's voicemail (activated through AT&T, which is Straight Talk's SIM provider.)
The problem is, missed calls to the android phone number, not the GV number, triggers the answering machine at home - calls ring to both the Nexus and the Obi100 device! I have "Go straight to voicemail" checked off under advanced options for missed calls, rather than "ring my other phones first."
Do I need to port the mobile phone number (which I've had for ~10 years) to GV, request a new number from Straight Talk, and use the new Straight Talk number as the "physical phone" for both accounts? Am I missing something in the phone or the GV configuration to make this work as-is?
