I have a Google Pixel which I brought to Sprint a week ago under BYOD, 1 year free unlimited.
As you are aware, since it's BYOD I have no visual voicemail app.
I tried to set up / integrate Google Voice as a workaround, but received a message from Google to contact Sprint because this number cannot be integrated.
Using *73 I was able to forward my missed calls to Google, but - they show up as missed calls and do not trigger Google to actually prompt for, or record, a voicemail.
I contacted support. I don't have WiFi calling, any kind of blocking, CallingPlus, anything enabled that would cause a problem.
The problem is apparently that Sprint has disallowed Voice integration on my plan. WHY THOUGH? I have to call into the system like it's 1992 and listen to the entire 5 minute voicemail repeatedly just to hear someone mumble their number at the end.
I was told that in order to have usable voicemail, I'd need to change off the current plan - in essence, pay $720 a year for voicemail. That cannot be right, can it? What's the workaround to the workaround?
doing more research:
there is NOTHING here about Google voice restrictions for this plan
and NOTHING here either
