Google Voice Voicemail Rings

I have really enjoyed using the Google Voice option for voicemail on my cell phone.  The cool part is that it sends me an email with the voicemail message.  The message is attached in sound form and it also makes an attempt to do voice recognition.  The one disadvantage is that it rings way too many times.  Some people give up on leaving a message because it rings so many times.  Well, thanks to Evan Wondrasek, I found a fix!

Google Voice Latency Problem

I have been using Google Voice with Skype for a little while now, but I have been having quality problems.  There is a 1 to 2 second delay between the time a say something and the person on the other line hears it.  I thought maybe it was the Linux, PulseAudio, Skype combination, but I have since found the same thing happens when I use my home phone or my cell phone.

I found that I am not the only one who has the problem:

As “Papa Bear” suggested, I sent feedback on my problem with this link.  I am trying to raise awarness of the problem now, but I am not sure what else I can do other than quit using it for the time being.  If anyone has any ideas for extra information, please let me know!
