    Default 1 Touch Voicemail Visual Voicemail Workaround

    Okay, I was trying to find a way to get the Voicemail Icon in the Dock Bar to skip the visual voicemail page and go directly to voicemail audio version. Well, I could not figure out how to do that reading forums or searching. Here is my workaround. If you know a better way please let me know.
    Its not perfect.
    1 Create a new contact "Voicemail"
    2 Put in your phone number as the number to call.
    3 Upload a voicemail icon (png filetype) to your image folder
    4 Now in the contact tap the face to load the icon image
    5 Save contact
    6 Go to widgets and grab the Direct Dial Contact widget
    7 Place widget in dock bar.

    Now, when you hit that voicemail icon in your dock bar it will directly call into your voicemail.

    Thanks for the help.

    It is the matrix of 3x3 squares now, not the gear. Or can just search for Google Voice.

    Nevertheless, I was happy with my sprint Voicemail, which seems to work fine. Maybe I will try google voice. I assume there is lots of advertising with voice, reading my messages like they do with gmail, etc...?
