We’ve received a few pings from users expressing frustration about an issue with the Nexus 5′s voicemail notifications — or lack thereof. We looked into this and confirmed that the Nexus 5 does not show voicemail notifications — specifically, the icon in the notification centre after someone has left a message — until the device
Sometimes, acts of nature disrupt our lives in ways that even technological advances cannot prevent or repair.

The government of Ontario is close to passing Bill 60, the Wireless Services Agreements Act. After passing its third and final reading this week with a unanimous 96-0 vote in the legislature, the former private member’s bill is preparing to protect wireless customers in Ontario.
