    Has anyone figured how to use Google Voice as the primary voicemail provider on this phone with Boost? I tried to install GV and activate it, but it told me that my provider doesn't support auto configuration (or something like that). My searching has only turned up posts from years ago, most saying that GV voicemail can not be used with Boost.

    The stock voicemail app is working fine for me, but it's not as good as GV, and I hate the fact that it is so "in your face" about trying to get you to pay for added services.

    Note for rooted folks: If you disable com.sprint.extension and com.lge.sprintextension, then the stock voicemail app doesn't work.

    I don't know how to fix your issue, but I wanted to ask, with those disabled, do you get voicemail notifications?

    I'm thinking that those old posts are probably still accurate. One of the drawbacks of using a prepaid service.

    I don't think I was getting any voicemail notification at all when I had those 2 services disabled.

    Regarding GV voicemail in general, it worked great on my wife's last phone, which was on Pageplus (a Verizon mvno), so it does work with some prepaid services.

    GVoice Voicemail not working here either. when i set it up is said something about my carrier (VirginMobile) not being compatible or being locked by carrier. But it does work on my Net10 phone.

    Unfortunately GV voicemail doesn't work on Sprint Prepaid either.

    At first it looks promising:


    But then the actual integration doesn't work:
