    Default no voicemail notification in status bar?

    OK, just got my nexus, and its updated to JB 4.2.1. Its pretty good so far, and I haven't had many problems with it. So far so good. Then again, I came from an EVO 4g that they stopped supporting at 2.3, so anything is better than that. The only thing I can't figure out is that for some reason I don't get a notification when someone leaves a voicemail. I'm able to retrieve it without any problems, but I'm not notified when someone leaves one. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    I have the same issue, but I'm also using Voice Integration. For a very short while on 4.0 it would show it, but the 4.1 update stopped that. Are you integrated with Google Voice, or are you "normal".?

    Go to google.com/voice and go to settings (gear type icon on right side near the top). On Phone tab, do you see "Deactivate Google voicemail on this phone"? Or "Activate Google voicemail on this phone"

    Also, check to see if you are integrated with Google voice (instead of just google voicemail as I described above) - review the phone tab
    (this of course assumes that you use google voice in the first place)

    Regardless though, you should see a voicemail notification - either from the dialer, or from googlevoice app.

    OK I think I screwed it up worse. I synced Google voice with my voicemail carrier, and now it won't let anyone leave a message. What do I do now? Help!

    If you meant to say that you enabled the integration, you can disable it on the same page on google.com/voice

    OK Google voice is disabled, and I even uninstalled the latest update. Google voice is not integrated. Should it be?

    Cool. I got it all working. Its just confusing, and I don't understand why sprint doesn't have an integrated voicemail app anymore. Probably for the same reason I can't sync my Facebook contacts to my gnex anymore without a third party app. O Google, why must you make things complicated...

    Depends on whether you want full google voice integration or just google voicemail (Google Voice)

    The Galaxy Nexus device, being a "Nexus" device doesn't have any Sprint apps (including the Sprint Visual Voicemail). Google offers the google voice application that does the same thing

    ok strange...I had google voice activated, and for some reason it wouldn't make any phone calls recently. I kept getting an error message. I called Sprint, and they said that GV sometimes "takes over" the phone. I disabled it, and it worked fine. Lo and behold, I started getting voicemail notifications through the Sprint system. So right now, everything is working, so I'm not going to mess with it. Thanks everyone!
