Google Voice: Contact Individual Settings.

For reasons that I cannot fathom, Google has dropped individual settings. Sure, there are group settings, but there is no way to get to individual settings at all. The odd thing is that we still have the ability to edit them. Why would they do that? It's not like Google doesn't know about the problem nor is it that they don't know that the users hate it this way. They just ignore us.

So anyway, here is how to do it. Just keep in mind that this isn't the ideal way, but it can be done if it's something you wish to do.

First, it may be easier to do this by opening a text file and pasting this on the text file. You're going to have to put together two different URLs to get this to work.

Also, make sure you're logged into Google.

Now, go to your contacts by clicking here. Search for the person you wish to edit. We'll call ours John. Once I select John it should have a link that looks something like (without the colors, of course):

Copy that last part after that last slash of your contact, it's in red above. Paste that into your text file.

Now copy this entire thing below (in red):

Paste that in your text file BEFORE the abunchofcharactershere, with NO spaces. It should now look like this:


Then hit enter or whatever to go to that page. It should work, unless Google changes something.

Hopefully this will help you. :) Cheers to all!
