    Got my z10 from Verizon store in Cleveland today. They said it was only the second one they have sold which surprised me. I was an avid bb user until about 2 years ago when I switched to android. Really missed my bb so did alot of research and thought I would try the z10. Anyway I really do like the phone size, function, keyboard etc. I really hope that bb can make a come back but am having some concerns. Not a big app user but am missing a few apps and customization like verizon visual voice mail for example. I have to say I at first loved the z10 and still do but I am having some concerns about future. I really dont want to learn and like this new os and have to switch again. The lack of apps is going to be a deal breaker for alot of consumers. I say this because I really wasnt concerned about apps but until I got the phone and wanted to do a couple of things I didnt realize that the bb app world is really far behind. Not sure if I can give that all up but I am definitely going to give it a chance.

    List some of the apps you miss and maybe someone here can help you find it or give a suggestion for a substitute.

    I have the Z10 with AT&T and it does support visual voice mail. As others have said, you have to call your carrier and make sure you have visual voice mail enabled on your plan. After you add it, a VVM tab will show up in your phone app.

    Seems the Z10 supports it physically then. My carrier uses it, and I can't get it. Interesting.

    I have it with ATT. Had to activate it. It will also show up in the hub, at the bottom.

    It's in the hub. Look at the bottom. To set it up go to your general settings and look for visual voice mail. Sign up and go through the stages.

    I think the whole hub is a waste of time. Takes forever just to do something. All these swipes make me wanna go back to my 9930.

    Agreed, but it could be solved by simply making the icon on the "peek" clickable. Say I shoot someone a text and then swipe over and launch facebook. While im in face book I get a random notification. I peek it and should be able to click the email icon. Instead I now have to swipe back to hub (which is still in the person text), swip out of that, swipe out of the text menu, click email, then click the email again to open.....

    I hope that a few more people on Verizon answer your post to see if this issue is carrier specific. I've seen one issue in the forums that was carrier specific to Bell, but I haven't seen any other Verizon threads. If you subscribe to it, I don't see why it wouldn't show up somewhere. I don't get mine for a couple of days so I'll be checking back in here to see if you were able to resolve it or if I get the same issue (my storm trooper is finally on it's way!).

    If you have visual voice mail with your plan and Verizon supports it on the z10 already then you should be able to open your phone app, swipe down near the top and select settings.

    There should be an option in there to set it up. I had to do this on bell here in Canada.

    Hope this helps!

    Verizon must not support it on Z10. It sounds like it is a Verizon thing.. but still is a problem for a lot of people

    I know here in Canada, bell was and might still be the only company to support it, I think like you said it may be a Verizon issue right now, it seems like it is up to the carriers to add the support for vvm.

    I just know that I had it for a week without knowing there was even more phone options to enable it haha!

    Nope, SETUP is in a separate icon. VVM setup is from that icon. SETTINGS is from the swipe down menu.

    I had issues with my Tmo VVM not being able to access my account. I had to do a security wipe and start all over in setup, transferring contacts, etc.
