    Default Nexus 5 voicemail STILL NOT working after 4.4.3!

    I'm extremely frustrated with this matter. I waited patiently for this update that supposedly was going to fix this issue and it did not!

    Before anyone suggests 3rd party alternatives, I would like for my REGULAR voicemail to work like a very one else's, and not having a third party app.

    I called Sprint and they forwarded me to technical support (big help!...not) and they completely refreshed and reset my voicemail. Did not work. Brought it in to the repair center, they did NOTHING.

    I have very important calls coming in and many times I can't answer. I need voicemail notifications! Is it that HARD for Google to do this right!?!

    What should I do???

    Are you sure it's Google? I haven't seen others complaining about voicemail.. And my buddy who had the nexus 5 before the S5 didn't mention anything about it.

    I'm 100% its a software problem that's not compatible with something to do with Sprint. Google had said this was one of the fixes....yet here we are.

    I am with Sprint and have no problems with my voice mail, no visual voice mail app but I get an icon in my notification bar when I receive a new message.

    When I first activated my phone I had some issues with the notification not going away. Called Sprint, they reset my voice mail and since then no problems at all.

    Yes I am on 4.4.3

    I am also with Sprint and have zero issues with voicemail. I get the icon and it works just fine. I do wish we had a visual VM app but it works the old school way.

    After upgrading I always do a factory reset. It can be a pain at times but I think its best to start with a clean slate. A lot of the times people have issues after updates, and a majority of them are eliminated by doing a reset. I am not saying its a must its just my preference.

    Actually, the best way to do it would be to flash the factory image. No "upgrading", and no factory reset needed. A TRUE clean install is always best.

    I read some where a few weeks ago when Sprint leaked the first report about 4.4.3 release that Sprint had some code included in 4.4.3 that enabled their Spark data network in 4.4.3.

    I'm on sprint and agree VM service is lacking. What they need to do is be like the other carriers and add an VM app on the playstore that works with unlocked / unbranded devices.

    In the mean time though, I have my VM forwarded to Google voice (which is free) and it works great! I recommend trying it out.

    Actually, Google is the one that needs to implement VM on Nexus and GPE devices just like iPhone does for every carrier.

    visual voicemail is up to the carrier... ATT has their app in the play store etc.. So its not really on google but is instead on sprint to open up their APK for their voicemail..
