Is there a way to turn this off? When I answer a call I have to press 1. It's annoying and I've missed called fumbling around. Can I turn this off?

Yes. seems like Sprint is now joining forces with google voice and the app is doing it.
Go to:
1) https://www.google.com/voice
2) upper right corner there's a gear, hit on it and choose settings
3) under setting choose "calls" and turn call screening off
4) if you do not want the voice-mail text go to "phones" and un-check "Notify me of new voicemails via text"

I disabled under "phone" the "Your Google Voice Number" and took out my number

Seems like google is trying to get people to use their programs without our permission. Not good.
