    I am having a weird issue with with my iPhone. I have been using Google voice for over an year now and my ggogle voice number is configured to forward call to my iPhone.

    But I just noticed that when I call my AT&T cell directly and reject the call, instead of playing my ATT voicemail greeting, the message says that "The ggogle voice subscriber you have called is not available. And then in 1-2 mins I receive an email from google voice informing me of new voicemail.

    I had installed GV mobile app couple of weeks ago but that should not start routing calls to my ATT number to Google voice network. I have also checked call forwarding on my phone and it is disabled right now.

    This just doesn't make any sense. Is anyone having a similar issue??

    I am on a call with AT&T CS right now and he is checking what is going on.

    When you signed up for google voice, you may have followed instructions that turned on that feature, not knowing what it did. To turn it on and off, see here:

    It's nothing special or limited to google.

    Other companies can do this, too, such as Ribbit Mobile.
