It works like that. The thing is I could have any number of voicemail and not be aware of it. That's the problem. No notification.

I just set up Google voice, but yesterday I left myself a voicemail. It took 5 hours for a notification to pop up. Then after checking it by long pressing 1 in the dialer, the notification never left until a reboot

I had a Sprint product development employee reach out to me this morning after reading this thread. His message says:   Robert via Samsung Note 8.0 using Tapatalk Pro

Does anyone know if there is a way to turn off notification previews that show up in the status bar?

Do you mean 2 finger swiping up and down on the notification?

 If you're not getting notifications its possible you didn't even set up your voicemail in the first place?

Great info and good to know~! I'm currently enjoying my N5 on a prepaid T-Mobile Kim card and the speeds & experience have been great. :)

 

Quick question: when you activated the N5 on Sprint after putting in a Sprint card, what were the subsequent steps? Were you able to activate the N5 on Sprint via website or did you have to call in to Sprint?

 

Also, were you made to pay an activation charge? I thought one didn't have to pay an activation charge but I was charged the fee earlier this year when I switched from the E4GT to the GS4.

I actually did the initial switch in a Sprint store. There was no charge and all they did was enter the MEID number in their database. Turned the phone off and back on and it had switched over to Sprint. When I switched back to my iPhone I had to call in - I had tried online but it required a chat session and no chat operators were available - but the lady was great and she did say that future swaps would be easy online. Probably took 3 or 4 minutes max.

Still having the voicemail/text message problem.

 

"//Android:${from} has sent you a sprint voice message. Call${callbackno} to listen..."

 

I tried everything that halcyoncmdr suggested and still having the message sent every 30 minutes or so.

 

After I cleared data, i went to unsubscribe from visual voicemail and I again got "Voicemail error".

 

"Communication with the voicemail-to-text server has timed out. We will continue retrying in the background and notify you upon completion of the check."

 

It's been trying to unsubscribe for over 48 hours.

Is there a way to have the notification light on when it is charging? Not a huge deal but used to seeing it come on when you plug it in to charge. I tried dogging through the menu and display options and couldn't find it.

Update your profile.

Did that a couple of times. No luck. Factory reset my old phone and updated the profile on that one. Issue remains.

What are you using for voicemail?

You do get missed call notifications, right? I'd base calling voicemail just in case I missed anyone's call.

I do get missed calls notifications, but I could ignore a call. That's a good point but even flip phones get a visual notification of an unheard voicemail. My point is that it should work.

Two things to try:

 

Clear all data and the cache from the Google Voice app, then open it and run through the setup and integration again.

 

If that doesn't work, reactivate you old phone, make sure voicemail is configured properly, then switch back to your new one.

 

I got a very similar message earlier, but a profile update and re-doing Google Voice seemed to take care of it.

Read the reviews and be aware of the ToS. They may be doing more with recorded messages than is necessary...

Will stop a the Sprint Store during the week to see if they can help me out. I'll say this, would love to see in future Android versions Google Voice features integrated into the phone and messaging apps. OEM's have done that through their skins. Don't know why Google Voice it's still just available to the US market, but an OS integration of its features would solve that and make Android a more finished OS in my opinion. 

 

Thanks for the input. Love the Nexus 5 though.

Also, Ericsson has really been pushing on 3G acceptances too the past few months. And at least a lot of Ericsson NV markets have Ericsson (Nortel) legacy equipment.

Haven't seen that here... take note of October 2013 missing in the one graphic since there was none that month.

Over the last month or two, Ericsson has taken KC from almost all 4G only to 3G/4G, Dalla, Houston, San Antonio as well. Guess they really just don't like you. Or Louisiana. Not sure which. :P

It's me. Same reason why certain legacy sites are still legacy ;)

I may have missed this, but has anybody with a Nexus bought on contract from Sprint tried putting another SIM in to see if it works on other carriers?  The fine print on the box makes it sound like it is locked to Sprint.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
