Super Easy Setup of Google Voicemail with Ting on Nexus 5

I have seen a bunch of very complicated processes but all you need to do is log into your Ting account click on Device Settings then select the device. On the settings page for that specific device:

  1. Uncheck 'Voicemail'
  2. Check "Forward 'busy calls'... and enter your GV #
  3. Check "Forward no answer calls"... and enter your GV #

Note that IF you check "Hide my caller ID" then GV won't know it's your phone and calls will ring to you TWICE - the first time and then you you decline the call GV will send it back a second time. 



  • And someone showed me one other nice trick.  If you put on "Do not disturb" in the Google Voice settings, then it will dump it straight into voice mail when a call comes in, rather than also having to ring a few times there once the call is forwarded to it.

  • What if your GV number is exactly the same as your Ting/Sprint number?

  • Ryan, 

    Did you previously have Google Voice integration with Sprint before making the jump over to Ting?
