Default Sprint Visual Voicemail

Sprint users,

Has anyone figures out how to get the VVM app on our nexus?

I'm no longer with Sprint and I don't have my Nexus 5 yet, but in the past I was able to get it working on my old Optimus S running CM7 from a titanium backup I got from the original ROM. Its worth trying to pull it from a Sprint branded device (with app data) and importing to the Nexus. But I wouldn't be surprised if that didn't work.

It'd be nice if they made it a Play Store app like T-Mobile does.

Why doesn't Android have visual voicemail support built in? My Windows Phone had VVM neatly integrated. I love this phone, but it really surprised me that I had to download a 3rd party app to do this on Android

If you use Google voice, it does have visual voicemail like features, include free transcription.
You don't have to do full intergration or porting either. Just have Google voice handle your voicemail (launch google voice and walk thru' the steps to set it up as voicemail app)

I tried setting up Google Voice as voicemail only and didn't not work, when I dial number to provision *28..... Just tells me something about code not valid...

OK So I installed Google Voice and set it up only to handle my voicemail only. I suspect that Sprint was doing nothing more than using Google Voice to an extent, because when I installed Google Voice and set it up on my phone my Old Voicemail greeting was the greeting that I had. I had never used GV before on any of my old phones and when I set up my Nexus 5 I used the system standard. (I could be and most likely am wrong about this theory, just found it odd that the greeting was my old one from my old phone when I just used Sprint VMM app before)

The error when dialing *28 is tower specific - I ran into this when I was trying out youmail on sprint. Had to try out a few different towers before the *28 would take - be persistent.
