Is anyone else experiencing this. I tried setting up Google voice and can't figure that out. I can call *86 and retrieve my voicemail. It just never notifies me it's there. Please help!

Your not going to get it from Verizon until they start to recognize your device....I'm going thru the same thing .

I had Google Voice as my VM provider way back when I was on Sprint before I ever went to Verizon. I've never used Verizons VM service and never plan to. I suggest you research a little more and work on getting Google Voice working with your phone. You will never look back.

You can do it online. If you subscribed to basic visual VM just removed it from your features and add basic VM. Worked for me. Now I got my tape player icon notification back.

Definitely no VISUAL voice mail yet for VZW. Regular voicemail works as soon as you delete VISUAL voicemail from your account.

Not possible to have Verizon visual VM, because we don't have Verizon software on the device.
Will also always have to Sign into my Verizon every time you want to access it.

Same problem with Sprint.

The following works around the problem:
In the google voice settings, check "View and play voicemails from the phone call log"

This is the OPPOSITE of the solution listed here:

How do you do this online?

I can't find anywhere in My Verizon where I can get do it although I see Basic Visual Voicemail as a feature, I see nowhere to get rid of it :/

I have a VZW flavored Nexus 6 and it looks like you have to use visual voicemail. I don't see basic voice mail as a feature that I can add on my account.

I have the free version of Visual Voice mail working on my Nexus 6. The only problem is that when I tap refresh in the VVM app, my phone sends a text message "STATUS" that shows up in my messages. It's annoying!

I'm not getting any notifications re VM as well on Verizon. Tried looking online to do it but haven't found it there. Anyone have a link to it?
