Has anyone gotten Google Voice working on their AT&T Note? It errors out when I try to switch to it via the app or through settings -> call -> Voicemail service.

Mine works just fine without setting it up at all. I get visual voicemail and everything.

Reinstall and run the setup by launching the app

I got the same error over and over, finally got it working by manually putting in my google voice number into the call forwarding settings, worked right away

Similar problem - just Error with no more information and an OK/Cancel button

Re-install didn't work.

I ended up using the code from GV to "activate" the phone and that set all the forwarding numbers. It appears to be working, but doesn't say that Google Voice is the provider.

Still would be nice if MMS would work with AT&T/GV, especially since the messages just get dropped.

I had the same issue. Make sure it says ATT in carrier when you log into google voice (the website). If it doesn't, try to redetect it. Mine still showed Sprint for 48 hours before it detected I was actually on ATT.

Also entered the codes as mentioned on this site:

The important part to save you a click through:

"Second, open up your phone’s dialer and dial the following, replacing 1234567890 with your new Google Voice phone number…

*61*1234567890# (then hit send)

*62*1234567890# (then hit send)

*67*1234567890# (then hit send)

You should see a message appear on your phone after each time you press send. This will set up your AT&T account to take all calls when the phone is busy, when you decline a call, or when your phone is turned off or out of range and forward the call to your Google Voice number."

After doing the above I was able to change Carrier in settings to Google Voice without any problem.

Alternatively, you should be able to dial *004*xxx-xxx-xxxx# (where xxx-xxx-xxxx is your Google Voice phone number) and press call and it will automatically set everything up as well.
