Voicemail for BB10 like Iphone's?
When I switched from iphone 5 to galaxy s3 I really, really missed the visual voicemail iphone had. Now that I've sold my S3 and am getting the Z10 I was hoping I could have this feature back. I can't find anything specific though. Does anyone know? I'll be with Telus but can easily switch if either Bell or Rogers has something.

If the Z10 supports it, Telus doesn't seem to have it. But the iPhone seems to be the only phone they offer with Visual Voicemail, rather annoyingly.Z30 (10.2.1.2141) | PlayBook 32GB (126.96.36.1993) | Lumia 1020 (GDR3, Lumia Black) | Nexus 4 (Android 4.4.2)

I think the iPhone is the only phone that supports it out of the box.
But it's possible your carrier can add that option in the future like they do with Android phones. I know my carrier (Verizon) has a visual voicemail app for previous BlackBerry and Android phones.

all android and ios devices support this out of the box. with google voice on android it even shows your voicemails to you right in the call history, i hope this feature exists on bb10 as i'm eager to purchase a z10 in the US but the features i'll be losing moving from android are slowly piling up.

Windows Phone also support visual voicemail out the box. In the UK, the carriers only seem to enable it for iPhone (and not all of them!) Vodafone are doing it for iPhone soon, and WP after that. I've not heard of plans for BB yet. Probably costs carriers infrastructure.

Rogers told me today after i called them and they told me it was a minor (Major) Oversite and they will be added in a os update coming very soon. So for now No rogers visual voicemail. For anybody who has not used it on the os 7.1 it was fantastic better than iOS because it not only gave you the list of voice mails to listen too it also transcribed the voicemail to text and was super easy to forward or print. Lets hope it going to be simular to what it was like before.

i don't really know why a carrier needs to "support" it, it's not a feature that you need from your carrier to get working on android. it just forwards to your google voice number which is your voicemail and syncs with your phone. the functionality is identical, and more powerful than using something the carrier provides you with. been using it for years on android with tmobile and att, never had to deal with it as a feature from the carrier.

2) those voice mails, and their transcriptions are available to any phone either through the GV app or by setting it to text/email you the transcription and voice clip.
3) As for integration with the dialer, that was a cool feature on my Nexus 4, but then again, that's Google integrating their own voicemail client with their phone.
4) The visual voicemail on the 9900 also transcribed the audio and was in the call list, so it was the exact same thing.

My z10 (from Fido, in Canada - which is really Rogers) had Visual Voicemail on it when I first got it. We are talking about the text messages that you receive, with the transcription of the voicemail someone just left you, right?
It had it, when I first got it. At some point, I seemed to have lost it. I believe I lost it, after the first 10.1 release got pushed to my phone.
I called Fido about it once, to ask what happened to it, and the support person I was talking to, didn't seem to know too much about it, and suggested I try rebooting my phone. I didn't want to waste my time with unknowledable support people on the phone.
My current plan, is supposed to still have it (it's listed on my plan details). Maybe one day, I'll bug them about it again. I just call into my voice-mail.

Visual Voice Mail displays voice messages in the hub essentially as media files. You don't dial into the VM service, the messages are sent to the phone. You play them back and listen to them and they're stored on the phone.BlackBerry Z10 on Bell Canada

I'm on Bell with Q10 and I have Visual Voice mail since MR update. I enjoy this feature. No text just a standard BlackBerry notification and in the Hub there is a VVM inbox. It was always there but the actual service did not kick in until MR update.For the best typing experience only one brand does it the best. That brand is BlackBerry.
BlackBerry. Nobody likes a typo.
