And I don't want to use google voice (the standard reply for this particular problem..haha) because of one feature that few know about. The ability to send a voicemail to other VZW users from the app (their phone won't ring. But they think I called them back because they got a voicemail all of a sudden). I love that trick when you don't want to speak to the person but have to give an answer.

But back to the problem. Anyone know a way around VVM not working on WIFI ???
I suspect that Verizon forces you to use their network for checking voicemail (or getting VVM) for security reasons.
