Different voicemail greeting for local callers only? Derwinator 5/7/12 10:49 AM
I was looking at the Groups & Circles settings for GV and see that I can offer individualized voicemail greetings to specific phone contacts in my Contacts list.  What I'd like to do is offer one voicemail message to all callers outside my area code and a different one for everyone within my area code.  Can Groups & Circles be used to do this?

Unfortunately, Google Voice greetings aren't quite that sophisticated. You have three basic options.

1. Create individualized voicemail greetings for individual contacts

2. Create individualized voicemail greetings for groups of contacts

3. Create a "default" voicemail greeting for all other incoming callers, both those in your Contacts who aren't already assigned a specific greeting, and for incoming callers who are not in your Contact list
