Re: Google Voice odd behavior
Adam4 is correct -- Google Voice does not support "early media", where a message or IVR is played before giving answer supervision.
IMO, this is a serious shortcoming of GV. Not only are many toll-free numbers inaccessible, but you will also miss important messages such as "The number you are calling has been changed. The new number is ..." In most cases, you won't even hear a busy signal and will incorrectly conclude that your party is not home. A busy test number is 408-269-1999.
