    You may have to go into My Verizon and add Visual Voicemail for $2.99/mo, that's what I had to do. You'll also likely have to call *86 to setup voicemail pin, then you'll be able to load that pin in the vvm app.

    Why would you want to pay $3 per month when GV is free?

    GV seems kinda overwhelming to me, I'd rather pay to have it than not have it all, and I just don't really have the time to dive into the research. OP specifically asked about Verizon's vvm app for galaxy nexus.

    I didn't think anyone actually used Verizon's visual voicemail? Why does Verizon charge for this knowing there are free versions out there? Does it have something my FREE Google voice doesn't?

    I just want to repeat the obvious.

    And Google Voice is overwhelming? Um...yeah. Maybe if you find inhaling and exhaling overwhelming, as well.

    google voice is not very overwhelming at all. Get on your computer, go to googlevoice.com, sign in, set up google voice lite.......follow the instructions and use it....simple. (I use lite cuz i dont want to port my number and lose unlimited data)

    Im glad you know now! Welcome to VZW! Imagine how many people VZW gets with this scam? How do they justify this charge? I can see a one time fee, but a monthly charge? I'd love to here an opinion that justifies this 3.99 a month(or whatever it is) tax on top of VZWs premium over other carriers. Does vzw still try and charge a monthly fee for games like pacman on their pseudo smartphones? Does anyone remember this? I had an LG dare that was supposed to be an iPhone killer(what a joke) that charged monthly for pacman and other simple games.

    Do they still charge a monthly fee for the vzw navigator? I would have got an iPhone years ago if att didn't have such sub par service. Thank you google and moto for bringing the first relevant phone to vzw!

    I use GV, but for an easy visual voice mail replacement I use You Mail and love it. I think they have a free version and paid version. It's a great voicemail replacement and it will allow you to assign specific greetings to individuals, friends, family, business. Their web site contains all kinds of custom greetings you can use. I'm a big fan of the product due to its simplicity and reliability.

    Visual Voicemail For Your Phone | YouMail

    Also, I really like the standard greeting because it answers the caller by name using their caller id information! The generic message says something like - "I'm sorry [callers first name], but [my name] is not available right now. It cracks me up when the person leaving the message is startled to be greeted by name when theyve never called me before.

    You did choose the correct version of VVM? There are two apps. You need the one "VVM Nexus".
    It has a red icon. I couldn't get it to work either then I saw there was one specific to the Nexus.

    this doesn't solve your visual voice mail issue, but may I recommend Google Voice. it handles voice messages very well and it will transcribe the messages too.

    Google Voice! Don't waste $36 a year on something that is free and 10X better than Verizon Visual Voicemail. Take a few minutes to learn Google Voice and you will be happy you did!
