Why cant I get this setup, everytime I try to set it up, says something along the lines or "not supported by your carrier" manually configure, How do I then manually configure it?

Skip that screen, finish setting up, then dial *71<your Google voice/voicemail number>
Ex: *714254255555

This enables "no answer transfer" that sends the call to Google voice if you don't answer.

No go, I dialed *71and my cell # when it calls, it just makes like 3-4 real quick/short dial tones.

When I try to swith voicemail setting to google voice just tries to endlessly "update settings" when I go back to home then back into voicemail settings...it shows it set to google voice but it shows the wrong voicemail ph # & if I try to change it, it wont, just endlessly tries to update settings but never does.

That's what its supposed to do. The beeps acknowledge that Verizon will forward unanswered calls to that number.

Do you have google voice installed? Did you open it from call settings? Restart your phone and open Google voice first go through the setup, then go select it in settings.

Does it show Google voice, or my carrier? If it shows Google voice, does it show your Google voicemail number, your Verizon number, or something else?

Also: Google voice does Not use a pin/password. It uses your Gmail login.

You're not supposed to dial *71 and your cell number, but *71 and your Google Voice number.
