    I just brought my G2 home today, and I cannot find the Visual Voicemail app. I've searched the market for it, I've looked at all the apps published under T-Mobile USA, I've looked through the T-Mobile App Pack, and I've even used the link to the app from androlib, and I still cannot find it. Anyone else have this issue? I realize I could just use google voice or youmail, but it's the principle of the situation.

    Thanks but as I said in my first post I've already done that.

    He's right. It seems that T-Mobile has pulled almost all of their apps from the market. I wonder what's up.

    I write about technology for Maximum PC and Tested
    in the Transcend
    You should just set up conditional call forwarding with Google Voice. That way all your unanswered calls forward to GV voicemail. Then you can use the Google Voice app for your visual voicemail. I've been doing this for almost a year and it works great.

    That's weird, I had no problem finding and installing it from the market about a week ago. I also received an update for it yesterday or the day before.

    Yeah it's very strange. I contacted T-Mobile's online chat and she couldn't locate it on the market either, after some research she too suggested using Google Voice. It's not that I would have an issue using google voice, I'm a very tech oriented person, I had GVoice before it went completely public, I just don't feel like I should have to use it. I also just tried to find it on appbrain and it's nowhere to be seen.

    Yeah I can't find stuff on the Market sometimes and it annoys the hell out of me. Even with the same phone you can't find the same app that others found. Google need to step up on the way their Market functions. It needs more searching and sorting options.

    They've put a few of their apps back up in the market, but not the voicemail one yet. They did however release an update for it, though, which can be found either in your downoad list or on this site.

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully this means it will be back up soon.

    I should clarify: by "update," I meant "new version." You can downoad it from that page I linked to, if you like.

    Thank you for that, but I've decided to return my G2. Too many random reboots as well as just turning off. After master resets and such I'm not willing to deal with it anymore, so I'll wait for the new myTouch or possibly try the HD7. Thanks everyone for your help in trying to figure out the strange VVM situation.

    The link above does not work anymore. Agent K- how does that apk work for you? Do you mind emailing it?

    Works great. I can PM a link to anyone who needs it, or just post it here if it's not considered "pirated/illegal software".
