does visual voicemail work? Do you actually get voicemail notifications? lol

Re: My Samsung Ativ S Neo has been updated to GDR3

For your info visual voicemail is a Sprint App and Not a Windows Phone app. Also I don't use visual voicemail and yes I do get voicemail notification.

Also LOL to you too.

Re: My Samsung Ativ S Neo has been updated to GDR3

cool, unfortunately I am stuck with visual voicemail on my neo with sprint. If I uninstall it the regular voicemail notifications don't work for me like they did on my old arrive. Sprint visual voicemail doesn't work either so I am stuck with a device that doesn't notify me when I get a voicemail. Sprint has said the neo only has visual voicemail through their app and will not work in the old way. I wonder how you got yours to work?

How do i get this for my Ativ S Neo?  does it resolve the issues with reboots and voice mail notification?

Re: My Samsung Ativ S Neo has been updated to GDR3

Sprint/Samsung hasn't officially released this for us yet.  The OP got the early release through developer account.

Re: My Samsung Ativ S Neo has been updated to GDR3

That's right us developers gets it sooner. While troll like you gets it last.

Re: My Samsung Ativ S Neo has been updated to GDR3

Been using update and No it does not fix voicemail issue. Remember visual voicemail is a sprint app. It's not a Windows phone app. Also who knows when sprint will give you update. I updated it myself and working excellent.

Also about reboot issue I never had no problems with my Neo before I had upgraded to GDR3. So I can't tell you if it will fix the reboot issue.

By the way, you don't need to be a developer or have a developer account to get gdr3 from Microsoft on your NEO.  Just download windows phone 8 sdk and register your phone as a developer phone.  Once that is done you download windows phone developer preview app from Microsoft and then you can do settings>phone update and it will download and install gdr3 just like OP.  I just did it and I don't have a developer account (didn't pay the $19 yearly fee).

Keep in mind doing it this way will not get you sprint/samsung oem drivers/software but that may not be a big deal for you.

Also, after the gdr3 update, I'm still not getting toast notifications for voicemail... with or without visual voicemail app.

Re: My Samsung Ativ S Neo has been updated to GDR3

I have no problem getting my voicemail notifications and working fine. I never used visual voicemail. I removed it since I gotten the phone first day launch. If your not getting voicemail notifications than your neo is a lemon.
