Default Can't change voicemail to Google Voice

I've seen some other people say they had this problem, but no solution other than "I did it a lot and then it worked". When I go to change the voicemail provider I get the warning/error, hit yes, and get "forwarding number failed to change". Does anyone know how I can get this to work?

you need to manually put your gvoice number in forwarding options. this will change your carrier number to gvoice, but carrier name won't chahne. don't worry gvoicemail will work thou. I assume you are on stock. Also, check the ATT visual voicemail thread somewhere here it was also discussed there.
