Visual Voicemail

Anyone found a solution to the lack of a visual voicemail app?  The Android M dialer includes native support for it, but apparently Sprint doesn't want to cooperate (no surprise there).

I don't want to use Google Voice, so for the time being I'm just doing the voicemail the old fashioned way.  But MAN is this annoying.  It's 2016 for goodness sake.

Re: Visual Voicemail

has visual voicemail been on ANY of the other nexus phones prior to this? im thinking it hasnt been since visual voice mail would be a carrier add on and the whole point of having a nexus phone is to be fully free of any and all carrier added stuff.

Re: Visual Voicemail

That may be true, this is my first Nexus device, so I wasn't sure if anyone else had found an alternate solution.

That said.

The new dialer has built in support for visual voicemail, it just requires the carriers to support the feature.  T-Mobile does.  On T-Mobile the default dialer has an additional tab for voicemail. I suppose past experience says not to expect that level of customer care on Sprint though.

Re: Visual Voicemail

dunno..but you should probably check V and ATT to see if they followed suit or not with it..might still be in the works..but it also might not be.

Try the Youmail app. Works well enough.
