Visual Voicemail App for Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus Users Hits the Android Market


Verizon, knowing they have to keep the number of preinstalled apps on their Galaxy Nexus down, have decided to upload their visual voicemail application to the Android market for Galaxy Nexus users. Great! But this wouldn’t really be huge news if not for the fact that it shows they’re preparing for the device’s launch. It feels like we’re getting closer but we still have to wait for an announcement before getting too excited. [Market via Droid-Life]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. google voice > vzw visual voice mail

    1. seriously.  why can’t they integrate their systems with google voice.  they have that messaging app too;  i’d rather MMS support with google voice, or something like that.  *sighs*

      1. sad that sprint is the only carrier that integrates gvoice seamlessly. i’ve only adopted gvoice recently, but i’m an idiot for not adopting it long ago. pretty sure i’m cancelling my texting plan ($25/month) next month.

  2. I think Verizon just forgot they havnt released the nexus yet.

  3. Way to rub it in jerks.

  4. Why don’t they do the same thing with VZW Assistant and Backup?

  5. App is working well, glad its finally out.

    1. Why pay for this app when you can just use Google Voice. Much better app IMHO and it’s free.

        1. Why is that a facepalm?

        2. put a “/s” at the end next time, cause your “casm” sucks

      1. I think you fell in the casm.

  6. Nothing like eating side dishes before the main dish comes I guess.

  7. I found it somewhat interesting that it tells me that the app isn’t compatible with any of my devices (obviously since I’m on T-Mobile), when I expand the list of my devices it lists my Galaxy Nexus as “T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Nexus” but my Nexus One is just “HTC Nexus One”.

  8. Yeah…so all we need now is the phone, and we’ll be able to download all the Verizon bloatware we can handle.

    1. How are you complaining about bloatware on an article stating that Verizon is avoiding bloatware by putting its apps on the market instead of preinstalled on the phone…as bloatware.

      1. It was a tongue-in-cheek comment about Verizon’s inability to launch this phone in a timely fashion, while still providing consumers a way to download their bloatware for a phone that might as well be a ghost, at this point.  Just a little sarcasm, is all…

        1. Fair enough Joe; I’m also quite maddened by Verizon’s lack of communication regarding the release. So sad =(

  9. Apps for a fictitious phone?  Great!! Just what we needed.

  10. That David Becker guy won’t take the hint! They don’t wanna talk to him!

  11. $3 a month for voicemail?

    1. Free for t-mo *shrugs*

      1. And Sprint…

  12. What’s with all the Dan Brown character references?

  13. wow that is unattractive, why not use the google visual voicemail api that was demoed in ICS/android 4?

    1. can Verizon still charge $3 a month if they use the free, built in API?

  14. Seriously???…. At this point why doesn’t the whole Android community
    show Google/Verizon how disappointed we are and just completely stop
    reporting on any Galaxy Nexus news?  Like we haven’t had enough “news”
    and “updates” since the first rumors of this phone first “leaked” as far
    back as April or May,..or whenever the hell it was….my god what total
    debacle! HUGE FAIL!  At this point they will be lucky if anyone even
    wants this phone when ever they do decide to launch,…. oh not to
    mention the fact that they haven’t even hinted at when it will be
    available for T-Mobile/AT&T. 

    There are plenty of users who won’t buy it no matter how good it is just for the simple fact that it’s on Verizon,…  So seriously people — STOP reporting on this device,…I
    we can all agree it’s been beat to death already.  I wish I had a penny
    for every Galaxy Nexus article that has come out in the last year —
    I’d be RICH!!!  Never thought I’d say this but, this almost ranks up there with Duke Nukem Forever!

    LET’S MOVE ON!  I know I have,…and many other people have as well.  All I have
    to say is Good luck next year with the Nexus 4 because this year was a
    total disaster.  I bet two weeks from today this phone will still not be

    Hahahaha,…wow,…EPIC FAIL!
