    When watching the hands on video for the new samsung galaxy s 2 epic touch video on phonedog, he was scrolling through the phone and showed/voice acknowledged the visual voicemail app on this phone,

    i believe its at gingerbread 2.3.4.

    so this is GREAT news for us nexus members who thought that we were left out cold with the visual voicemail not being developed anymore for gingerbread since the sprint/gvoice thing...

    so all we need now is a system dump so we can pull that voicemail apk!!

    what does everyone thinK about this?

    i just rather not have to go through the whole GV setup, i like it how it was, a vm app that was there, then we could have either option GV or use the stock vm on the phone itself.

    this is not the successor, the only successor to the nexus is another nexus, its just the only other phone available coming with a build os close to the nexus that has visual voicemail built in.
    we need to rip that apk and try it out.

    Beware of Google Voice Sprint integration though I was continually missing calls because of it. GV sends them to voicemail before the phone rings or after 1 ring. It was almost 50% of the calls I could not get before they went to VM.

    That is either the Sprint VVM application or Samsungs native Touchwiz VVM. Both of which will not work on the Nexus S 4G. Those apps will not come or be offered to the Nexus S. Samsung also does not handle updates for the Nexus S. Google does

    Do you know this as a "fact" or "just guessing"?

    Yes Google handles updates for the Nexus line BUT nothing is stopping the user from installing an app via it's .apk

    It is the Sprint VVM app. The Photon 4G has the same logo for it's VVM app.

    You can use GV for VVM purposes only. No calls (inbound/outbound), no texts (inbound/outbound), no nothing except for visual voicemail. *28 conditional call forwarding is a beautiful thing.

    You skip integration. (Or disable it now if you have it and don't want it). Otherwise your SMS will be there.

    Glad to see they updated the app so you can disable SMS notifications and use the regular app and still get VM notifications. (Which is good since I re-enabled GV+S since there is no service at work for the time being!)

    And I'm missing calls with it again. Not forwarding. Disable. Not worth it. So good.... until you integrate Sprint. Still works perfect for VVM though.

    I have a feeling that most people have no clue that GV can, and is designed to, do VVM only. If someone wants to write some instructions on how to do it, which should include instructions for those who have already integrated and those that haven't, PM me you're instructions and I'll vet the information then sticky it.

    I've been using GV for VVM only for many months and will never switch back to a carrier solution. I suspect others will feel the same after seeing what can be done. As long as your carrier offers conditional call forwarding, which sprint does, you get VVM with message transcription free and easy courtesy of GV.

    I agree with you 100 percent. Google voice has been awesome for me.

    Is there a way to do vvm with google voice with call screening and without text messaging?

    i really jumped the gun with this,
    i loaded this vvm apk on my phone and while i did get it to provision, none of my voice mails would come through.

    only things that would work were voice mail messages i would record and send to myself.

    so who ever posted here about the nexus not being in the system as being a phone thats allowed to vvm, they were right.

    its not app related, its system related.
    something the system does.

    i personally think it would be a advertising point for sprint with the newest nexus that comes out to get it, by advertising how our nexus gets vvm while other carriers dont with the nexus or similar.

    while vvm started as a apple thing and now everyone has it, it is a missed feature for me and since hearing the issues with GV, im not even messing with it.

    so mark this thread as dead, because ive done everything to get vvm to work and it just never will.
    i read it works in CM7 but find that hard to believe since its carrier related.

    Yeah, I posted this over at XDA, but I was pretty sure I heard that directly from Sprint. Bummer, though you can set Google Voice to do the same...

    I don't believe the issue is only the lack of a GB app.

    If I remember correctly, the Nexus series has the voicemail routed through a different server than the typical Sprint VM server, which is required for Sprint's visual voicemail to work. I hope I'm wrong for your sake, but I have a pretty good recollection of Sprint saying visual VM would not be on the Nexus.

    I'd be nice if someone would show how to setup Google VVM. I get texts, emails and broken english translation for each vm I get...the options menu in the app looks super sparse...I don't see how to shut the extra notifications off...

    Like other people have said, you don't have to do the Sprint integration. When you install and open the GV app, it ask if you want to do the integration and all you have to do is press skip.

    Then you can always try the app called Youmail. It's good, but GV is far superior. Yeah, GV translations may suck for some people (for me, they're perfect), but Youmail makes you pay for those same translations.

    I think I had the same problem before, the stock messaging app and GV are both notifying you of texts? Just turn off notifications for the stock messaging app.
