Well folks, Verizon might finally be making some headway with the Galaxy Nexus rocking those all important 4G LTE speeds. The Galaxy Nexus will come mostly bloatware free and because of that — the Galaxy Nexus will not launch with Verizon’s popular Visual Voicemail application. I personally use Google Voice but to each their own I guess. Today the Verizon VVM application has hit the Android Market being used on none other then the Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

Back in November we mentioned Ice Cream Sandwich was missing a visual voicemail feature and that is because Google has opened it up for carriers to build their own, exactly as Verizon has done. While we are still waiting for the fancy updates to VVM to hit Google Voice this should hold all you Ice Cream Sandwich users over in the mean time.

Between the leaked pictures and video of Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus yesterday, and this new application hitting the market today we could actually be very close to an announcement and release date from Verizon. Best Buy is claiming it will be available starting December 11th. If that is the case Verizon will probably be announcing the Galaxy Nexus with 4G LTE between now and Monday. Lets sit back and hope that’s the case.

    It doesn’t even use the new Honeycomb/ICS UI — you can see the legacy menu button at the bottom of the display. C’mon, Verizon.

        Yes, VZ needs to support older devices, but they can still support the new UI calls. Google has plenty of documentation on how to do this. Actually, rather the use a separate visual voicemail app, VZ should have integrated with the new visual voicemail API in ICS.

        It’s all a moot issue for me, since I use Google Voice, but it’s unfortunate the Verizon doesn’t seem to be taking things seriously with this phone.

        i have yet to buy a phone from verizon that i ever felt they were serious about. My Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first device ive owned from verizon that didnt ship with anything disabled or reduced. Too bad i cant find the app in the market for vvm.

    You have to pay a $2.99 subscription per month to Verizon to use Visual Voicemail on the Galaxy Nexus.  W.T.F. ?
