    Default No Voicemail Notification

    I haven't had a voice mail notification since I got this thing. Got my *** chewed by my boss's boss for not calling him back after he left a message telling me to do so. Sure enough, it was there, along with several other messages I didn't know about.

    Is this just my phone, or are there others?

    I have had this phone for 2 weeks now and after reading your post thought it was strange that I have had no voicemails. So I checked and sure enough I had 5 of them with no notification.

    My wife has the same problem...so you're not alone. Not sure what is causing this. The phone? Or Verizon.

    This feature must be turned on. Same thing happened to me. But they showed me at the phone store how to do it. Once it's on it works just fine.
    Got to Voice Mail.
    Go to Menu
    Go to Settings
    Go to Notifications

    VZWsupport on Twitter had me call my VM, press 4, then 1 to turn on the indicator. If the solution in the post above doesn't work, try this one.

    I didn't know I had voicemails until the 2nd week of owning the device, when someone asked "didn't you get my voicemail??". is this just not a default feature on most phones? gotta keep that in mind when my tech-illiterate parents get smartphones :P.

    I've always had issues with voicemail notifications & that led me to use YouMail instead.

    My phone and my wife's both stopped receiving voicemail notifications. Here is the fix. Go to text message icon on the home screen, go to voicemail then to menu then settings. Once settings is open go to menu again and restore default settings. Then reboot phone. This worked on both my phones.

    Thank you so much. Twice now I have had this issue and I am self employed: contractor. This has cost me some money. I am not happy.

    Thank you for this simple fix. Worked great.

    I have Metro PCS and I have no voice mail notifications. I lost a potential job interview by not replying to a call in time. Don't know how to turn on vm notification! I down loaded Executive Assistant to monitor all incoming media: phone, email, txt msgs, and it doesn't show vm messages either. Today, I had 4 vm and still no notification.

    Do you use Google Voice to handle your VM?
    If so, Nova Launcher Prime (with its companion App "Tesla Unread" ) can handle the Notifications for you.

    I tried to go to Application Managaer but no voicemail option shows up. I've tried the other possibilities.Now Verizon has told me to get enhanced Voicemail - that's not going to fix it. How do I get beeping notifications on Android that I have VMs? The only one I can get to happen is text messages. I happened to check the other day and had 5 VMs and didn't know it. My old feature phone worked much better for this stuff. THanks.

    Good share. I was expecting a voicemail today, but all I saw was a missed call notification. Went into my voicemail, and discovered my mailbox was full. Not sure if that prevented the caller from leaving a message, or if they did not leave one. Will try that again tomorrow.

    I followed the instructions above, and sure enough my voicemail indicator bit was set to Off. I selected 1 for On. Lets see if this works. Like others have said, I think that the default setting for voicemail indicator should be for On.

    Edit: Just realized that this is the Droid DNA forum. Found it by searching and just opened the search link from AC since I'm on AC. I have an S3, so appears this is not an isolated issue for a particular phone or Android version, but possibly something on Verizon's end.

    My service is with A T & T, I was not able to get my VM with my new Blackberry Z10 phone, I called A T & T. You must set a password in your VM otherwise the VM is recognized as regular VM but with the Z10 you have Visual Voice Mail.

    If you ever used call forwarding and your carrier is VZ the CF flag in VZ's system may still be set. Redo the *73 then remove the battery from your phone for 1 minute then restart. This has cleared up my lack of voice mail notifications in the past.

    If you have the visual voicemessage app, you need to disable it to be able to get the notifications. That's how I fixed mine. You can always go back to the app to enable it.

    had the same issue with my galaxy s3. the only way I knew if I had a voicemail was the icon on the notification bar. the solution to receiving audible notification when you have a voicemail is go to settings, choose language and input, then choose text to speech output, and finally turn on driving mode. you will receive an audible alert that you have a voice message waiting.
