Phone number autoforwarding to voicemail without me asking. Verizon and Nexus 6P

Pedantyc 4,500 566 June 6, 2016 at 02:55 PM
Got an issue where a phone call never registers on my phone but it goes to my voicemail. The number belongs to a gate that people can call me from to buzz them in.

As far as I can recall, I have never had this working on my Nexus 6P but is used to work fine on all my other phones.

Also have a possibly related issue where I don't get voicemail notifications. Instead I get a text message from Verizon that is complete nonsensical garbage.

Called Verizon about both issues but they basically said that they don't support the 6P and told me to just reset it or call Google.

Some networks just don't play nicely. IOW, you can't get there from here.

I may end up doing that. Managed to fix the first error by forcing Verizon to remove the Visual Voice Messaging that was never actually on my account anyway. Made the text garbage go away.

Called myself from the gate box last night and it worked for some reason. Maybe something about being on Wifi at home mad the call not connect and it was just bad timing?

I did turn on the HD voice function to allow simultaneous data and voice. Should not have affected it but it did maybe?

In the end fixed maybe? No idea.

Google voice could also call multiple phone numbers at the same time if it was appropriate.
