Thanks for reaching out.
As a fellow Android user, I'd love to have visual voicemail available to me. Unfortunately, at this time, there have not been any announcements.
If any news is made available, we'll be sure to share it here!
Not withstanding all of the theories as to why Rogers has not implemented VVM, it seems like an inexplicably foolish business strategy at a time when Rogers is trying to retain or win over new customers.......
Thats the stupid part to me. Why would they not want to activate this feature. It's not going to lose them customers, its already a part of the OS, it seems more work on their end to not activate it....
The weird thing is, half of the thing is already set up. If you have their premium voicemail, it sends you a text with the transcription and audio file of the voicemail. This is basically what the built in VVM feature in Android hooks into, Rogers just needs to set up their voicemail system to integrate with the Android VVM software. They do it for Apple, and I can't imagine it being that much different (or difficult) on Android.
Rogers is just lazy because the percentage of Android users make up just a tiny fraction of their total smartphone users (in relation to Android anyway).
Visual Voicemail or Premium Voicemail to Text as its sometimes called is a really great feature. It's so much more convenient than having to actually access your Voicemail Inbox and go through all the prompts.
If you recently changed your Wireless package its possible you may not be subscribed to that feature. It used to be a part of a $5.00 value pack but it's now available as a separate add-on feature. We will need to look at your account to confirm what subscriptions you have currently.
