    I've done some searching to little avail, so I was hoping a helpful soul could point me to where I can acquire a copy of the VM Visual Voicemail app that may work with 4.4.2 and/or mk5.

    (I subscribe to it and do like it)

    I found an older copy that seems to work from another phone but it has some graphical glitches.

    The MK5 build has the visual voicemail in it. Did you accidentally delete it? ;)

    I'm currently on CM11, so I probably didn't notice that. Good to know though! I'm going to try to back it up in Titanium and restore it to CM11 to see if that does the trick.

    But may just stick with mk5 because I cannot get MMS working with CM11 yet.

    To be honest, I've no experience with modifying custom roms for our device to have working mms and 4g but struckn has made a Guide stickied here in the forums that you may find helpful.

    On this device, I have only ran stock.

    MMS is working great for me both ways on 12/12 and 12/15 builds I posted in my CM thread. No LTE for me though, so I can't really help there.

    Pretty sure VVM is a TouchWiz thing, therefore not compatible with AOSP. Everything is essentially a tradeoff for us, can't have the whole shebang.

    Over in the Samsung Galaxy S2 4G thread for Virgin Mobile, b_randon got working VVM on his Cyanogenmod 10 rom :) I have no idea how but I ran the rom solid for weeks. It also had working mms and 4G WiMax. Brandon has since moved onto T-Mobile but I have his email. I'll see if he can help out.

    I appreciate the information guys, it is helpful.

    I'm betting that because I'm in 4G lte area, that's why my mms isn't working but yours is. I have tried every combination I can think of. I have not messed with turning off LTE though. It's ok, for now I'm happy with mk5 stock.

    I miss the stock android experience a bit, but being on kitkat is more a bragging right for me than a necessity atm.

    My apologies, my memory swapped things around in my mind. Looking back, here is the scoop on VVM working on Cyanogenmod. Brandon baked VVM into his CM10 ROM, but it was g60madman who created the VVM fix for Cyanogenmod ROMS. He managed to get it working on several devices. Here are a few of his threads pertaining to the issue. Hopefully it may steer a developer in the right direction. Feel free to contact him. He's very friendly and helpful.



    EDIT: I believe my memory had contributed the VVM fix to b_randon14 because he did in fact get VVM working on his CM10 ROM for the Galaxy S2 but g60madman was the one who made the flashable zip for the VVM fix. My apologies to both of them if I am not remembering that correctly.

    A titanium back up of vvm from tw installed on carbon ROM 4.3 works just fine. Blacklist the 9016 messages and your good to go.

    I think g60's zip somehow blocked the text messages as well. Either way, glad it's working for you :)

    I will give this a shot on KitKat. Too bad my phone is never used as a phone so I never miss calls and need to check voicemail ha ha! Seriously, texting has almost completely taken over the communication role for me, but I do use the phone as a phone occasionally. Pretty soon though, kids won't recognize the phone icons as representing a phone, they will wonder what that strange symbol is supposed to mean! I don't even try to explain the rotary phone my family had when I was a kid.

    You might open up the zip and see what it consists of.

    You're right. This icon:


    Will soon be replaced with this:


    I saw a payphone in a gas station while traveling a while back and I never expected for it to be such a strange sight to me ;)

    Also, another correction. I said that Brandon had working MMS and LTE on the S2.. it was 4G WiMax. That device does not have an LTE radio.

    The domain hosting the VVM Fix has expired. You might send him a PM. This would be a great fix to implement into ROMS. It would be awesome to have ports with already functioning visual voicemail where users don't have to back up and restore VVM :)
