    First off, whenever I look up anything on Google, it gives me locations for things in Chicago, IL but I am in CA. Even with my GPS on this happens. The main Google page says location unavailable and when I tap the "update" link next to it, nothing happens, even with GPS on.

    Issue two is voicemail. My visual voicemail doesn't want to work. I get a text message instead telling me to call some 408 number thats always busy. I have to call my own voicemail to get my messages. Anyone know whats up?

    Make sure you've checked my location in google settings...

    As far as visual voicemail Sprints is lame...The transcribing is terrible ...
    I use YouMail..Its fantastic...you can pay for a cheap basic service or upgrade to what you need...Transcribing is the best I've ever seen...Highly recommend... Visual Voicemail For Your Phone | YouMail

    I had same problem with voicemail. Made me crazy. You need to go into voicemail settings and uncheck text notifications.

    Google voice works great for me for voicemail services. It even transcribes the voicemail into text to you can read them when you can't listen, like in a meeting.

    Thanks but I don't want to READ my voicemails, I want to be able to listen to them. Visual Voicemail doesn't work at all. I have to dial my own number and put in my security code just to listen to my voicemails. I looked in the settings for visual voicemail as well and saw no option to stop texts.

    Google Voice transcribes and gives you visual access so you can see all your voicemail in one app. Been using Google Voice since I have had my Android.

    With You Mail it works like Google but more accurate you can READ your voicemails and listen to them as well...I just think Sprints Visual Voicemail dosen't work well at all...
