    So I didn't set up my voicemail yet, but the phone has been doing it for me, I guess. My previous voice mails and my 9 year old OGA have all been deleted (Thanks for telling me about this before Sprint!, I would have liked to save some of them)

    When i use the "Visual" voice mail, which btw, is hardly visual, it's more like photo voice mail. No visual text to read.... The only two options I have are speaker or earpiece. Bluetooth does not work! When holding it to my ear to listen in private, the phones sensors never pick up the fact that the phone is near my face, and the screen stays active. Touch your face with it, and who knows what function you activate... :eek: And the audio quality is bad. You know who it is, but the sampling rate, or codec they use is low quality and you get a tinny buzzing sound constantly while the vm is being played back.

    Am I using this wrong, or is this just an Epic Fail on the part of the software?:eek:

    sorry you have been having bad experience...

    but for me it's great I'm coming from ATT & they had nothing like this on my old Samsung Phone.

    I love to be able to fast forward/rewind & it displays contact info who left you the msg...

    no complaints from me...

    I just set it up to forward voice mail to my Google Voice number for better voice mail and management.

    Google Voice

    After doing that and setting up GVoice on my phone, I get all voice mails through there now.

    I have the motorola H700c. It works with everything else. Perhaps the program is A2DP only?

    It's an Epic Fail. The fact that HST Bluetooth is not supported, and the proximity sensors are not monitored is ridiculous (on this phone). Stuff like this is why Android phones, no matter how awesome they are, will continue to lose to Apple with your average user. Someone needs to take ownership for integrating this stuff properly.
