Tell us how you really feel

I feel like a forum babysitter. Why do we have to spoon feed so many of these halfwits the obvious page after page? Is this current Generation that stupid? Every link explains what this is, what it does, and how you get invited, yet these "I-WANT-IT-NOW" dbags are so impatient they ignore everything we tell them. ugh. Morons.
PS, I'm always happy. I'm not in Iraq anymore, so life is always good.

And it's not Google that left it out I believe. I think the program was made independently. Quite a feat if you ask me!

I'm happy I snagged GV via appstore when I did. Now that it wont be getting any updates, I might as well switch to the Cydia one.
I just signed up for GV (got the invite after YEARS of waiting) Lucky me I got a number that spells my name.
I wonder why my Google Voice page doesnt show my Google Apps domain's email contacts. In other words I have 1000 contacts when I visit google.com/a/mydomain.com but 0 contacts when I log into google.com/voice I registered and use both with same [email protected] email address.
I previously used my same [email protected] email address with another hosted service, and the [email protected] was used as a generic google checkout ages ago. I wonder if by doing that, my email address has some unused linked gmail contacts it thinks it's supposed to connect with. I asked Google in several forums and even via premium support page with no response after a week now.

Am I the only one having this problem or is it just that nobody really cares?

Ok, back on topic.
07-28-2009, 07:57 PM #89gv voicemail playback problem on t-mobile
hey everybody. many thanks to all the good people here for keeping me up to speed on what's happening with the gv/iphone situation. thanks especially to sean kovacs for putting his great app in the repos.
i am running GV Mobile 1.22 on a 2.2.1 jailbroken iphone. i have no problem accessing gv voicemail from the web via safari - downloads and plays fine; however, using GV Mobile, everything works except voicemail playback. It loads up the voicemail history fine, and when I press a voicemail the app indicates it's downloading. then...nothing. i press speaker in the upper right corner...still nada. speaker and headphones are otherwise functional. anyone else with this problem?
thanks again as always.

Not really up to speed on GV. When did Google announce this? I totally missed it until I heard about it over at iPod Touch fans...

Seriously if I was a mod I'd ban on stupidity alone, and this place would be a Ghost Town with cyber tumble-weeds. ugh!

The only way to sign up is to submit a request and hope they get to you soon.
I signed up for mine ages ago and just finally got one several days ago.

07-28-2009, 09:15 PM #100Quick Recap
For those of you wanting to use this App...
1) Jailbreak purplera1n
2) Run Freeze -- it's an icon that will appear on your device at the first available slot... This installs Cydia
3) Run Cydia -- the first run takes a minute and usually kicks you back to the home screen, just re run it after it completes it's updating
4) Accept and update any of the critical updates it requests to do
5) Select "Hacker" (may be able to do user, but need terminal support for 1 part)
After all the above are done: (or if you're already jailbroken)
5) Search for "GV Voice" -- (Default install of cydia will see it). Top-right corner hit Install/Confirm/etc.
6) Once you see a black screen with small fonts, hit the on-screen button at the bottom (I don't recall if it says return to cydia or reload springboard)
If it will not remember your username/password when you select it to do so, do the following steps:
7) Back in Cydia, Search for "MobileTerminal", Install/Confirm this install as well
8) Back at your home screen, find the black icon that looks like a command prompt, tap on the screen and run it
9) For me, the screen flipped upside-down, but still worked. Type in "su" (no quotes, case sensitive)
10) For password: "alpine" (no quotes again)
11) Next type in:
chown -R mobile:mobile /Applications/GV\ Mobile.app
Enlarged to show clearly
Hope this helps those that are new to jailbreaking as they want this app (such as myself)
