hey

Tired of not having visual voicemail. Want to try google voice. I tried it once before. Does it still play the audio from the voicemail through the speaker on the back of the phone or through the speaker calls normally come through? When I tried it on my EVO it played throught the loud speaker so everyone could hear. Not cool.

Also, if anyone wants to comment, tell me your favorite things about GV and the things you dont like.

Thanks!

You know you can install visual voicemail from the gummy toolbox, right?

Sorry I didn't post it right away.
It's good man. No worries. Are you sure data's on or you have a data connection? Try pinging a website in terminal emulator.

I dont know how to do that. My data is fine I would guess. I can use the browser and the RootzWiki app to talk to you.

Edited : figured out ping I think. ..

Yup. Ok, well you definitely have data. Hmmm... try installing a different version of busybox. But first, see if you can update the toolbox.

I'm a big fan of google voice...actually I use it for everything now. I don't even hand out my cell number to people, using google voice for all of it. I can't speak for visual voicemail, but with google voice...it can be done both ways through the phone and through the speaker....in the settings there is an option for playback...choose either handset or speaker.

Can't update tb. Busybox installer says I have more than one version installed. Is there a way to uninstall other versions? Or does it not matter that much?

I've always considered dropping texting due to GVoice, but the only thing that's keeping me on it is the fact that Gvoice still requires an active wifi or data connection. I'm still wondering if it's worth the extra $20/mo though...

No, that's probably contributing to the issue. It's either going to be in your /system/xbin or your /system/bin folder. Try renaming it to busybox.bak and then use busybox installer to update it.

Tried what you instructed. After renaming it to busybox.bak, the installer acts like busybox is not installed. So I install it and after it still says there are multiple versions installed.

Then somethings definitely not right... I would recommend reflashing.

No problem. I have the time before I go back to school, so I figure why not?

I love google voice except when playing back my voicemails either through earpiece or speaker I wish it was louder.
