Visual voicemail doesn't require a password - don't even know where it would ask for one.

Call your number from your phone and reset your voicemail password to something, like 1234. Then the next time it asks for your password, give it the voicemail password. Visual voicemail does use a password for authentication purposes, but it should only ask for it once. If it keeps asking for it, then the password is incorrect.

Mine is doing the same thing. Not all the time, but it does pop up and I don't think I am even in the VM option when it does

Edit: I found this Apple discussions

Yes, just reset it.
It keeps asking cause you either entered the wrong password or havent set it up yet.

Now I just need to remember what my password was.
