    Every time someone leaves me a voice mail I get an annoying "set up your Visual Voice Mail" prompt. I don't want Visual Voice Mail. Once the prompt comes up, there is no way to dismiss it, and the "back" button doesn't work. I have to continue like I'm going to install it then reject the licensing agreement. I don't see it in the app list to disable. Anyone know how to get rid of this?

    Just set it up. It doesn't cost anything on the Turbo like it still does on some phones. This is a feature Apple had first and one of the only ones I was always jealous of. I was never willing to pay for it. I LOVE VVM.
    But if you don't (do you know what it is?) just set it up. You don't have to ever use it, you can still check VMail the old fashioned way. :D Y'know, the old 2011 way. lolol

    Basic visual voicemail is free to all I believe. You get a trial of the transcription service, then that expires & you can still listen to your voice mails without having to call, but won't see it translated to text.

    I stopped using Google voice & started using it. Works as advertised & saves a couple steps for checking voicemail.

    There was a $2.99/mo charge for the RAZR HD for basic. Maybe VZW's exclusive deal ran out with Apple and it's free for all now?

    Like PereDroid said... Sign up... Then don't use it.
    Or go to settings... Apps...all. Scroll down to the voice mail app and disable it.

    i don't want to sign up for it. if you sign up for it, it eliminates the time / day / stamp.

    also, you cannot disable it from the apps, it's not an option.

    It does no such thing. It has no effect on your "regular old press and hold #1 to call your voice mail" which is what I think he means, Ava.

    I just called my Voicemail the old fashioned way. BARBARIC!!!! And yes, it's fully timestamped.


    It's a fantastic app. I don't know how anyone can prefer dialing and pressing buttons over choosing which VM you want to hear from a list. The ONLY reason I can think of why someone wouldn't want that is security: you don't need to enter a pin.

    To each his own. But trust us... we are Android Pros. This is how to get rid of the prompt.

    How'd you even remember to do that!? I used GV for years for my voicemail and, like I said, switched to the free basic app from VZW recently. I'm not sure I could tell you my PIN if my life depended on it.

    I used to use that old method on my last phone, so it hasn't been that ong for me.
    I was so excited to get VMM on the Turbo. Didn't even know it was standard when I get the Turbo. That was a joyous discovery.
    I have a Google #...never once used it.
    And if I live to be 100 I cannot forget the pin. I just type my name on the letters of the keypad. ;)

    Actually, I lied. I'm pretty sure mine's the last 4 digits of the phone number I grew up with.

    And I almost never use the GV number, but I set my phone to forward to the GV mailbox and transcribe in the app as soon as it was possible. Kinda convoluted the way you have to do it nowadays on VZW though.
