I see. However, you would only be able to get the iPhone to have a distinct ring for GV if you have it pass the GV number and set a specific ring for that contact. Otherwise, the phone has no idea what kind of call it is.

Hi, Brent. If using GoogleVoice, there is a setting under Call Screening which allows the GoogleVoice number to be passed to the phone instead of the calling party's number.

That could work also. I thought you have to hit 1 to answer the forwarded calls, as they are announced to you upon answering, unless you can turn all of that off. You wouldn't be able to have Google pass the caller's number and have a distinctive ring at the same time though, as far as I know.

 Bill,

          This is another option I'm considering.  If memory serves, when you forward you can tell Google Voice either to pass along the original caller's number or the Google Voice number for Caller ID purposes.  I could forward the calls to the client's iPhone via her regular mobile number and use a distinctive ring if it's coming from the Google Voice number.  The important thing is that she knows whether she's answering her own native mobile number or is receiving a call from the Google Voice number.
