I have it on my vzw devices. Wife, kid, parents included. What issue did you have?

It says " Unfortunately your network carrier is currently not supported for automatic voicemail configuration." When I try to set it up. I tried to follow the manual steps but no joy. Mind sharing how you set it up on your m8?

OK... so the first time setup I usually do from a PC while logged into google voice. There's a first time setup page there that tells you to complete a step you would likely miss otherwise. From memory... you have to enter *71 [Your GV #] and hit send on your phone. This sets up the voice mail forwarding for no answer/busy. You then open and install the google voice app and open it. ?It will ask you to login and then you hit next. I chose the option to NOT use google voice to make any calls. Click next on the setup voicemail page (you will get the unfortunately error. Hit configure. Select google voice. Hit OK on the carrier configuration prompt.

If you land at the voicemail settings screen (which is under phone settings->call) you want to see the voice mail service set to Google voice and when you click on the Voicemail Settings for google voice there you should see your google voice number there. After that, go back to the google voice app and it will sync your new mail box. Make a test voicemail call from a different phone and see what happens.

Hardest thing is getting the forwarding number setup on each phone which only needs to happen one time.... regardless of swapping phones. After that you will only ever need to run through the app setup

Turns out it was extreme power saving mode that broke it.
