I got my PH-1 activated and just realizing there's no Voicemail app. When you get a voicemail notification, it dials into my voicemail. Is this because it's a near stock android, like the nexus and pixel? Is there anyway to get the Sprint Visual Voicemail app? I had it on my previous phone (Galaxy S4).

Thanks

Get a Google Voice number and forward your phone to that VM.
You can get a text with the content of your VM transcribed.

I always hated Springs VVM app/service. Google Voice is way better. You have 2 options there: 1) setup conditional call forwarding or 2) integrate your Spring number to Google Voice.

Follow these steps for conditional call forwarding -- https://community.sprint.com/t5/Google-Voice/Google-Voice-not-picking-up-28-does-not-work-here-s-the-fix/td-p/348100

Conditional call forwarding forwards unanswered calls to your Google Voice number, but doesn't ring -- instead goes to voicemail there. It's all seamless.

Integrating your Sprint number with Google Voice is nice, actually. The catch is you can't use Sprint's WiFi calling feature. You're not missing anything anyway and there are ways to use Google Voice over wifi too. When you integrate with Google Voice, you share the same number on both services. Make calls from your phone as normal, your computer, tablet, virtually anything with an internet connection. Same with texting. It's all synced, sort of... Texting via Voice is synced. Texting via SMS... well, Google Voice only keeps a record of received texts. Best part about Google Voice integration is it includes spam blocking for calls and texts. As in, fewer robo calls and fewer spoofed caller ID calls.

I disabled my Voice integration to try WiFi calling. I couldn't wait to go back. Without Voice, I got 2-3 robo calls per day. With Voice, I might get one a week. And I can handle my calls and texts at work from my PC if I have to, keeping my phone down and still looking productive.

You setup Google Voice integration within the Google Voice settings on a PC/web browser. You might have to chat/call Sprint support to remove Wifi calling from your account. If you tell them you're trying to setup Google Voice integration, good luck. 9/10 don't know it's a feature and the 1 that does barely knows what it does or how to set it up. If you get an error setting it up, it's 99% likely because wifi calling is enabled/on your account.

I can't believe this is not more active, or that there isn't threads for Sprint & voicemail specifically. Obviously I have Sprint & the native phone app voicemail does not work. I got an email from Google voice support telling me Sprint deactivated my Google voice intergration, & that if I want to enable it I need to call Sprint. I've been on phone several times last couple of days going back & forth with Sprint & Google to no avail. When I go into legacy voice settings from a PC the "let Sprint work with voice" (however it's worded) button is not there. So I will call Sprint again & see if that wifi calling is enabled & if so I will have them disable it & go from there.

It just really is mind boggling that in 2018 this is even an issue for anyone. Especially when service like Sprint actually has an add for "BYOD" (bring your own device). They should have small print stating "if you don't want to get voicemail notifications"

I'd settle for just that somehow, just to get notified that I have a voicemail. And then I can dial in over phone, enter a pin & do it that way. As I see it now, that's my option, to call into my voicemail every hour just to see if I have one.

Google removed integration of Voice with the dialer.
To get integration with the dialer you need an old version of Voice.
You need Google Voice build number 0.4.7.10.
You can download it from one of the archives.
Remove the current version of Voice.
Also make sure you turn off auto-update in the Google Play Store or you will lose the integration as soon as Voice update.
It's been a known issue for years.

I have Google Voice integration just fine with the most recent and previous versions of the app... Not sure why I'm so special.

Yeah I've been using it fine, then voice was kinda built into Hangouts & I would get them there. Because of that intergration in Hangouts I used that for my SMS & they always went through. I used Hangouts because when I'm at home I have literally no data, so I used wifi & just couldn't make calls. In the settings of Hangouts you could see settings for g voice. This still worked long after Hangouts did that auto prompt telling you Hangouts for SMS would no longer work & wanted you to install Google messages. But anyway I tried 4.7.1.0 & it gave me # to provision, I tried dialing it but I'm at home & the call just ended. So I'll have to retry next time I head out & get a data signal.

Let's be clear, there is integration and then there is integration with the dialer.
integration will allow you to get you VM via your GV account and number because your phone forwards to you GV number.
Dialer integration means you don't need to open the Voice app to check or see your VM.

The former works great. The latter is broken in more recent versions of the Voice app.

    Well it installs, but it had an error provisioning, but then I received a text messages saying it was provisioned. But it doesn't receive the voicemails.

    Did you get it to work? And yes, I'm on Sprint.

    This version works for me.
