    Is there a trick to some form of visual voice mail? I know I can pay $2.99 a month for their version. I tried Google voice, but it continues to freeze when I try to set it up. It originally said there was something wrong with my carrier. Let me know some tricks, or your favorite app for voice mail.

    I'm a cheap ******* with some things and I use the free stuff. I don't need visual voice mail - I can hear who it is.

    Verizon bones me enough.

    I had to call Verizon tech support and get it reset. Something about not communicating with the voicemail servers. Once they reset it i set it up with no problem.

    If you have complaints. Then why not leave? Gets really tiring of seeing customers complain about things. I happen to like Verizon. I once sold wireless for a retailer over 5 yrs. Been a customer when they were AirTouch. They are the best and always will be. Don't like em...then leave! I like the visual voice mail. Wouldn't be without it. Its personal preference

    vInbox is the best service out there. It transcribes the voicemail to text and emails it to you with a wav file. It works well for me, because as an attorney I can't always listen to the message when I am in Court.

    Other than their network, everything about Verizon sucks
    especially how they try to charge for features that Google includes for free
    (such as VZ navigator)

    just use Google voice for visual voice mail
    its better than the crappy Verizon app anyway

    Youmail is a good alternative and pretty user-friendly.

    I think after being with them for 6 years that they would MAYBE ONCE cut me some slack in an upgrade 9 days early - but no, they say I have to pay full retail price for the note 2 if I wanted to get it.

    I can't say I've had any issues with them and they SAY they care about customer loyalty, but I can surely attest that all they care about is their bottom line and not the customer. I remember when users would threaten to move to another carrier, companies would bend over backwards to keep them - but not any more.

    I can put up with stuff like this. When you are on sprint and they tell you you don't have problems even though your phone won't connect, drops calls, downloads at 200kbs etc. It's all about function for me.

    I just followed how Google said to set it up and it works great. You do have to go into the phone setting and select Google voice to handle your voicemail. Hope this helps you :-)

    Google Voice for me. Works great and free! I like VZ service but don't like the nickel and dime stuff. Especially when the others provide it at no charge. I just got done fighting with them about getting charged $15 per month for a corporate email app. I already have limited data as it is, how can they justify more money for the same data.

    I use Google Voice. When I get a call and don't want to pick up, the N2 gives me few selections on the screen like "I am in the meeting", ect. I touched and response using one of the standard messages but it does not work. Is there a way to get around this with Verizon?

    Like another person noted earlier, give "Youmail" a chance. So far, it's pretty good for me. It's definitely equal or better than Verizon voicemail and i don't have to pay the fee for v voicemail.

    With you there - busy all day at work with calls, etc. It is easy to use and invaluable to me - $2.99 is no big deal...
