The long awaited feature for Google Voice is finally here: MMS. Google Voice now supports MMS from almost 100 North American carriers including AT&T, Sprint, T-mobile and Bell Canada. One major carrier not yet support this is Verizon. Of course I recently switched over to Verizon because AT&T wouldn’t give me the free upgrade when my phone died. Instead of waiting 6 months, I switch to Verizon and paid the termination fee. That’s how AT&T treat their loyal customer of over 10 years. But I digressed…
So if you are on one of the supported carriers, send some MMS and let me know how it is working.
To send all calls made to your Google number directly to voicemail, you need to enable Do Not Disturb from a phone or through the Google Voice website. Once enabled, all calls will be sent to voicemail until you disable the setting.
Note: Any text messages sent to your Google number while Do Not Disturb is enabled, will also not be forwarded to your mobile phone.
Google has a Global Spam Filtering system that would automatically redirect calls, texts, and voicemails from any of the numbers in the Google database that have been identified as spam directly into your spam folder. But you will need to enable this feature for it to work.
To enable this feature:
1. Log on to your account at http://voice.google.com
2. Click the wrench icon and select Voice Settings.
