    Call Forwarding Setup Help

    Hello, I am trying to set up call forwarding on my USCC blackberry so that I can use google voice as my voicemail. I am trying *74+10Digit, but that is giving me errors... some different every time. Usually sc232 or lb232. I called a rep and she said to use *72+10Digit, but then all of my calls are forwarded without a chance to answer. I want calls forwarded when I have my phone off/don't answer/ignore a call. NOT ALL THE TIME.

    doesn't *73 cancel call forwarding? I thought that by default the phone will kick to voicemail after the 4th ring or immediately if the phone is off.
    I didn't realize that there was an option to have it call foward at that point instead, only call forwarding or no call forwarding.

    Basically, best option seems to be to just give your GV # out without forwarding your cell anywhere. When some calls your GV#, you have the option of answering, screening (listening in as they leave a message) or just letting it go to voicemail.

    *73 doesn't work. I don't really want to have to give out the new number. I basically want google voice for the free voicemail transcription.
