But that just means that I can hear the voice mail. What if I want to answer?
Lifehacker has a post on using Gizmo to do just that. They make it sound so simple. Set up Gizmo. Tell Google Voice you have a Gizmo Phone. Have Google Voice confirm your Gizmo number. Then you're golden.
Unless you're not.
Here is my entirely unhelpful order of events.
- Tell Google Voice I want to verify my Gizmo phone.
- My computer rings.
- Time passes.
- Google Voice gives up.
- Gizmo's soft phone pops up to tell me I have a missed call.
It might be something simple and stupid. My current cannot-be-checked-at-work theory about my wife's laptop is that it's a permissions error. I'll work it out and see.
