      I tried using 5.1.048 but it wouldn’t work for me either so that’s why I had to use the older version (it was working for me on CM6 as well).  Try uninstalling your current SVVM (use Titanium backup to back it up just in case) and install the version.  I’m curious as to why you haven’t upgraded to CM7?

    I am having an issue getting this to work.  I have followed the instructions: download, compose, record and send.  I get “Error V30: Voice message will be delivered when data services are returned.”  Not sure why this happening.  I have unlimited data.  I can go into the browser and go to any website.  I can run Wifi Tether and everything works.  I don’t understand why it say I don’t have data services.  I also choose the phone to stay on the Sprint network as well as roam.  Suggestions?

      Ah, sorry about that man.  I thought I had responded to this.  After I got my new phone I was unable to get visual voicemail to work at all, and I tried a few different voicemail .apks.  What phone are you using?

      I suggest using Google Voice if you’re okay with doing that.

      I ended up switching to Google Voice since I couldn’t get the .apk to work after a while. It actually worked out because it has more features.

    I get a popup that says “messages will be delivered when data service is available” yet I have full internet access. What do I do now?

    Sorry, dumb  question here: Where exactly am I supposed to download the .apk file, and what do I do with it after it’s downloaded?  Do I flash it?  Just try to open it?  What?  I’m not only dealing with the voicemail issue but also with the impairment of GPS functionality and total loss of turn by turn navigation, and the fix for that also requires an .apk download.

      Not a dumb question 🙂

      Just put the file anywhere on your sd card/phone. Any file you download from the internet (via your phone) should be in the “downloads” folder. To browse through your phone’s folders, download ES File Explorer.

      After you download the .apk file, just find it and tap it like you would a normal app. You should be prompted to install it.

      If your GPS is way off, or taking a long time to lock on, I recommend downloading GPS Status.
      Here’s my video on how to get it to reset your GPS and download fresh data: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6UuU3E6ivU

      Hope that helps!
