Finally!!! A solution that worked!!!

  1. Download the Sprint VVM Titanium Backup zip: Download attached below
  2. Extract the Sprint VVM Titanium Backup zip to the root of the SD card.
  3. Download & install Titanium Backup from the Market.
  4. Launch Titanium Backup and make sure Sprint VVM is removed (if not, use Titanium Backup to remove it).
  5. Install the Sprint VVM (/sdcard/sprint_vvm_5.1.0.48.apk).
  6. Launch Titanium Backup, select Sprint VVM, select Restore and select Data Only.
  7. NOTE: There is App+Data but it doesn't work.
  8. Launch the Sprint VVM and "Compose" a message to yourself. It will test send and receive functions of Sprint VVM.
  9. Enjoy and report back to the XDA thread with your results.
  10. NOTE: If the above steps do not work, try manually placing the contents of the folder (titaniumbackup) into the preexisting titanium backup folder, i.e. install the APK as instructed, but also extracting the three files within the contained folder into your titanium backup folder.

I can verify and confirm that Sprint VVM (SVVM) works under CM7 Nightly 12 with the stock kernel, using the above method.

NB: On receipt of new voicemail, a text from "9016" will be sent to your phone. I'm using the basic CM7 MMS app and haven't figured out how to stop these notification texts, but that's a minor annoyance to have SVVM back!

Holy crap - thanks! I have seen this solution before, but no one posted a backup file with it. You fixed my voicemail for the first time since I flashed the first unofficial cm7.

I've tried a number of versions of the VVM app without success but I'll give this one a whirl.

Ditto! I have tried various other techniques and this finally worked!

Would be nice if this could somehow be packaged into a single APK though. Anyone know how to do that?

Sprint vvm has always worked with cm but it is the annoying texts you get with each voicemail. You can use handcent or chomp sms and blacklist the texts fyi.
