    When I use the visual voicemail from verizon the sound doesn't play through my parrot bluetooth car kit. It used to work with my old phone (storm) why does it not work with the Moto Droid??? Please Help!!!

    FYI - Same problem with a Motorola bluetooth earpiece - which seems strange since they are both from the same company and my previous Motorola phone worked just fine with this bt.

    I don't use Visual Voicemail (opting for Google Voice instead), but I would guess it would have to do with the Visual Voicemail app and not your bluetooth headset (or the phone).

    Sorry my friend, it is not something that can happen on the Droid...I am right there with you and will hope that in the future another version comes out that will allow it.

    Visual Voicemail is one of the things supposedly fixed in 2.01... Hold you breath and have hope.

    I wish I could give you good news, but I still have no Visual Voicemail through BT after the update.

    Got the update and.....still doesn't work!!! This is BS. Is it possible for there to be a app that makes it work??? If so I would pay $$$ for it.

    I do love the driod... there is only one glitch and that is getting bluetooth to work through Visual voicemail on the Driod. Bluetooth works on everyother function. It's absolutely insane to have fix for this - how does one listen to their voicemails in privacy? or while Driving? I thought the new fix pushed on Visual Voicemail would of solved that problem - but it only added Wifi. Anyone know about a fix? Or am I doing something wrong?

    Keep in mind that the issues with Bluetooth and Visual Voicemail is Verizon Wireless' issue and not Android/Google... so they could (in theory) offer a patch through the marketplace at any time (once VZW fixes it of course)

    why cant a developer take advantage of verizon and make a app that everybody would buy!! I would gladly pay for an app instead of paying for a service through verizon that is CRAP.

    My guess would be that the Verizon Visual Voicemail system is proprietary and they are not offering an API to get to it... If they did, I am sure somebody could write a much better application (same hold true like I said to the My Verizon app... that one stinks too)

    VVM works on my car BT, but not on my Headset BT

    Weird...
    I had resigned myself to not hearing my voicemails via Visual Voicemail on my Motorola H12 BT headset.

    In my car I have a Motorola T505 bluetooth attached to my visor and VVM does play through it.

    Any ideas?

    Yes, actually this is quite easy to explain... well, why one works and the other doesn't... not why there is a difference to Visual VoiceMail.

    The T505 doesn't use the same Bluetooth Profile at your H12 headset. It uses the A2DP profile, which is designed for stereo bluetooth... in other words, it sees the T505 as a "speaker" and not a headset.

    Now, I can't answer the "why" A2DP would work and the headset profile does not, but that would be why one device works and not the other.

    I thought so

    Thanks JayMonster.

    I had suspected that was the issue, because my Droid can play Pandora out to my radio.
    Maybe in the future there will be a fix to get VVM to go to a regular BT headset.

    Thanks again,
