iPhone 4 keeps prompting for a voicemail password when I never set one up.

Has anyone else have this issue. Just started to happen to me today. I open up my phone app and go to voicemail and it says incorrect voicemail password. Is there a way to get rid of this? I never set a voicemail password up. Well I'm pretty sure I didn't. This just started happening and I have never seen this before until today. Wondering if anyone has fixed this before. Please post if anyone knows. Thanks!

Try the last 4 digits of your phone number.. Or 0000 etc.

I had this happen on my iPhone 4 when I switched from 3gs. It was activated for me at AT&T store, they transferred my contacts and photos to the new device. I had my VM set up on the 3gs, but not the 4, and it still kept asking for password all the time. I just entered my VM password that I had set on the 3gs and it accepted. End of story.
Hope this helps.

You have to dial into the AT&T voicemail service and reset your password. AT&T will text you a new password, enter that and it'll stop asking you. I was having the same issue when I first got my iPhone 4.
