Default Need help w/CM7 and voice mail issues... What am I supposed to install? (Sprint)

I flashed Cyanogenmod 7.1.0 on an Evo 4G on Sprint service and now I get text messages that say I need to call 408.970.0000 to get my VM. When I called it I got a recording about having a smart phone with SMS or something or another and I wasn't sure what it asked me but I pressed option '2' and it said something to the effect that it would continue sending me SMS voice mails but that's not what I want. I don't like getting the cryptic text messages and would much rather have the previous VM solution I had. I think it's called visual voice mail or something to that effect.

If I want that back and to do away with the SMS notifications what are my steps?

Can anyone help me out or link me to a how to and how to resolve my voice mail issue?

I found something about a Spring VM apk so do I just need to install this app and if so where can I find the latest one compatible with CM7?

Thanks for the help.

Which topic specifically?

Since posting this thread I kept searching and I've found some threads talking about a Spring VVM apk and I've downloaded what I think is the right file that I may try. Now I'm just trying to make sure this is my solution.

We are in the middle of this same discussion on another thread so im guna hook ya up. First, download the two apps i linked below. Then using root explorer or a file manager that has root privileges mount system as r/w and delete the stock CM7 MMS app in system/app folder. Than move the MMS app i linked to system/app. Long click the MMS app and make sure permissions are set exactly like the other system apps, click ok. Now do the same with the VVM app below, move it to system apps and set permissions as well. Mount the system as r/o again and reboot your phone. Go into the VVM app and set up VVM and thats it. You will now have visual voice mail again and no annoying 9016 texts. BTW, the MMS app i posted is from Decks AOSP 1.3d rom(that has the fix for the 9016 texts) and the VVM app is from the 8/22 GAPPS, Enjoy.......

Thanks, I'll try it out soon as I get a chance. I installed an apk based on something I found and it kind of worked but I was getting those annoying 9016 texts like you mentioned. I'll give this a go when I get some more time.

I have not tried that rom but the issue we are trying to fix is the annoying texts you get with every vm from 9016. I know this works with the salvaged rom too. The vm come through on your vm app though? Also, some have had success with the following if the VVM app is not verifying there account automatically. Press menu in VVM and compose a message over 25 seconds long. Send the message to activate@vvm.sprint.com and make sure you have either wifi or 3g enabled so it will send. This should kick start it.

Use super private conversation app to block 9016 txt. Spc is a free app.
