    I've installed a rom that doesn't have the Sprint voicemail app installed and I can't listen to them through the texts I receive for some reason. I tried Google voice but it just made texts, calling, answering calls and getting voicemails overly complicated. Is there any way to get it back?

    After you install it go to the help in the settings for VVM to learn how to activate it if you do not receive voicemail.

    You need to remove the Google Voice Provisioning off of your account. Either log into google voice from a computer to change the settings... Or just call sprint and ask them to remove the forwarding and voicemail client that is programed in the switch at sprint. If you call and tell them... I cant recieve my voicemail. They will look at the switch and see that you have it provisioned for Google Voice and they can remove it for you.

    Either way will work. I have done it myself.

    You need to activate it. I had the same problem once. Do a search for voicemail in forums. I am not at pc now so I can type it all in right now. I made a post about this issue before.
    Dial *38 to stop call forwarding to Google voicemail, call last less then minute. Remove battery, update PRL, compose voicemail must be longer than 15 seconds and send it to: activate@vvm.sprint.com. YOU should now start receiving notifications.

    Read these posts from here, it's the 3rd 0r 4th post down I explain how to do it:

    FYI, when you install google voice it asks you to associate your texts and whatnot with google...the new "sprint integration"...you can hit "skip" and use it solely for voicemail. But other than that, just dial *38 to reset the voicemail back to Sprint and send the e-mail through the VVM like blackops said.

    "Error V30: Voice message will be delivered when data service becomes available."

    My data works lol and i have voicemail so im not without but figured it might be nice to use this feature. Have'nt had it since back in May when I got root. Also how do you update prl? That option is no longer available in my settings.

    Why even bother answering the question? You didn't help him at all. Doesn't look like you've been active enough, judging by your post count, to be offering such advice. Like the old adage says: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

    Dizzle: Unfortunately, as far as I'm aware, you can't update PRL using CM7. You have to do a NAND backup, flash a VD based ROM, update PRL, then NAND back to CM7.

    You are correct, you cannot do a PRL update in any CM7 ROM.

    OP: Do what jsm0377 suggests, it's literally the easiest way to do a PRL update.

    I got the same error when I was on cm7 too. I don't think vvm plays nice with cm7. You may have to go with Google voicemail.

    I did, grant you it took a bit to get it setup (which it still isn't done properly, if i ignore the call it continues to ring then beeps and straight to recording your message.) doesn't matter much theyd figure it out

    Well thanks guys. I'm gonna stick with the voicemail I've been using. No complaints on that. I had a little issue doing a backup and restore Thursday so I'm just gonna leave well enough alone lol. If it ain't broke...but as usual you guys showed up with support. Thank you all

    P.s. you guys are right @ matt2298 I "Googled" it before I posted my last post lol. I don't believe in taking up your guys time if i haven't done some research on my own. That's just being lazy.

    Lol Thanks for the help. I'm using the CyanogenMod Thunderc rom (I think thats what it's called) and I'm not able to update the PRL through the settings. I absolutely do not enjoy using the Googlevoice app haha but oh well. BTW is the googlevoice app the closest I can get to having the original voicemail? I've looked around and most of the other apps that look good say things about being members to be able to use their app.
