I have visual voice mail turned on on my TMobile MT4G but it doesn't seem to show you which voice emails are new. I have about 10 in my in box that I've kept and they are in date order but sometimes I listen to them out of order. On some phones I note that they are BOLD until they are read or a different color. These are all the same. Read - unread. No difference.
Also there doesn't seem to be a way to backup while you are listening to the voice mail. (think iPhone slider). Odd. I guess just want confirmation this is they way it's suppose to work or suggestions?

I have a slider on mine. And it bolds unread messages. Did you get the visual voicemail app for T-Mobile from the market? That's the one I use. The only problem I noticed was that it wont download voicemails while I'm on wifi.

I use the one that came with the phone, it works with WiFi. But once in a while, when I open it, it says "This voicemail account was associated with a different number. All previous voicemails will be deleted" or some crap like that. The weird part is that it works and does not erase any of my messages. :confused: Maybe somehow my account is recognized different when I'm on WiFi comparing with cell tower signal???? Very confusing.

Google voice is good. The problem is I got charges $48 one month for call forwarding. Everytime a Cal went to voicemail it counted as a forward. $.45 each time.

As for your vvm problem I'm not sure because I had to get the app from the market and it might not be the same.

I tried to install the VVM from the Market when I first got this phone as I was looking for the "delete multiple/all" feature. When I did, it read I was trying to install a duplicate app or something along those lines. I miss that in T-Mos' VVM.

I tried Google voice all of 2 days and deleted it quickly.

I have only the original OS installed and the TMobile VVM so I am not sure I should expect what you have or? I had them turn on the VMM at Tmobile (which I didn't know I needed to do as it has a box to tick in settings to do that but no mention you had to also call) and I get a icon (picture if Facebook has matched it) of the caller and date. Then when a message comes in, along side the icon box or picture there is a sliver of a colored bar (mines blue) that denotes a new call. But no slider to replay message. There is a progress bar and a pause/play icon but not a way to control the progress bar beyond that. Guess that's what I need to live with.

Thanks for all the help.
