Default Visual Voicemail for Galaxy S2 Boost Mobile

The visual vm that I set up is actually set up through Sprint instead of Boost Mobile. My question is "if I want to keep the transcribed text vm feature is it a charge? I received a warning that the 30 day trial period is over in 2 days and when I tried to subscribed it gave me a error to contact my provider. I didn't do it right away but two days passed by and I had no vm...It would go to a fast busy sound or "the calller you are trying to reach isn't available" then cut the connection. My phone worked perfectly otherwise. I called Boost and the CSR said I had no VM attached to my account. Did this happen to anyone else with a Galaxy S2? After he fixed it I have regular vm but no transcribing text :-(

I get text/email message notification for voice mails. I have had that using my Google number for a while. I use GrooveIP at the house on Wifi due to poor signal when home.

Default It's not like it's good.

It's really not great from my experience. I get tons of calls from work and friends and it always says the wrong thing then what the person always says. It's a good idea but the thing itself isn't smart enough to even capture 50% of a sentence.

It's a bummer that we can't use the google voice app for this phone because it's free and it works

Why do you say that? I use GrooveIP to make calls via my Google number on my phone just fine.

I just checked Google Play store and the Google voice app is available and integrates with visuals voicemail on ICS now.

Visual voicemail at least through Verizon is $2.99. I had it once through AT&T, and it worked great. I am on the fence about setting it up again, my bill is high enough.
