    When I click on my Voice Mail app, it just takes me to All Messages (SMS/MMS). Is it suppose to do that?

    I have to admit, I've never looked at this app until now but mine has options at the bottom to select All Messages, SMS/MMS or Voicemail.

    Hmm interesting, mine just has the first 2 options - All Messages and SMS/MMS. Wonder if it has anything to do with being rooted?

    Possible. I am not rooted.

    I don't think it has anything to do with being rooted or not. I have only ever had the first two options as well, even before I rooted. My thinking was that if you subscribed to Visual Voice Mail through Verizon, then you would see the third - voice mail - option there.

    That makes sense however, I never subscribed to visual vm but have the 3rd option. Weird.

    I have the third option for voicemail. It does have the option to set up visual voicemail and either says 'No voice mail' or lists when you have a voicemail. I have not set up VVM since I refuse to pay for yet another service.

    The problem I have is that I get no indication on my homescreen when I have a voicemail, I have to specifically go to that screen and check. Is this a setting I have turned off maybe?

    Not rooted, but using Launcher Pro

    I use launcher pro also but I do get a notification in the notification bar when I have a message.

    I use Speed Dial Lite to create an icon to retrieve my cell voicemail. One push, and it dials the number, puts in the password, and gets my new messages. Of course, you have to create a new voicemail contact with the number and strings in it.

    It seems to have been removed from the Market now, but I'm sure there are alternatives:
