    Default Dying for another visual voicemail app

    I'm not sure if this is in the right spot or not, but since I have an S5 here goes.

    I deal with the "AT&T Messages" texting app b/c it's the only one with visual voicemail (vvm) functionality (that I know of).

    Does anyone know of any other vvm apps that work with ATT?

    Google Voice not work? There's some directions to activate it here Google Voice voicemail set up - AT&T Community Support. According to some comments, you may have to have ATT remove vvm from your plan to get GV towork.

    I'm on verizon and haven't even attempted using the Verizon Visual Voicemail because it's a lot easier to just install google voice and use that. It works great.

    AT&T also has a standalone visual voicemail app in the play store. It does not require that you use their texting/messages service as a default.

    What do I have to do to use GV? Do I have to "port" my number over to Google? How does this work?

    No, you do not have to port your number (though you will get an option of also having a google voice number). You essentially set up your phone to forward to google voice, then it will act as your voice mail provider and you can then have google voice notify you of new voice mails, read transcriptions of the voice mails (albeit sometimes not the best transcriptions) and listen to them from the app, or from the call log (if you opt to integrate it into your call log). There is a widget that allows you to review your voicemails from the homescreen. And if you happen to be nowhere near your phone, you can always go to the google voice website to check your voice mail. I hear tell this will eventually be integrated into hangouts, so it probably wouldn't make much sense to use it for text messaging at this point in time since hangouts is already doing that.

    You mail isn't too bad. I've been using it on my Verizon S5.

    Default Re: Dying for another visual voicemail app

    Until 3 weeks ago, before I moved to T-Mobile, first thing I always did when getting a new Android was to remove ATT Messages app and install ATT Visual Voicemail.

    Interesting. If I designate the ATT app as my messaging app (first), then try to open another messenger app, the phone will always ask if I want to change the default messaging app. Do you experience this or are you not being asked?
