    I have been receiving iphone visual voicemails up to an hour later after someone has left one... Has anyone else had this happen?

    Once, the first or second day after launch. My dad said he called and left a message, I said I never got a missed call or a voicemail... it showed up hours later.

    Happened to me the other day. Got a missed call and got the message telling me and then hours later I got the same message again. :confused:

    Happens on my previous phones where I get missed calls and voicemail messages but never get the notifications.

    So I think its probably my service provider rather than the phone itself. :confused:

    Given that visual voicemail uses the data connection to download the message to the iPhone this problem suggests a data connection problem.

    Not quite sure of all of the specifics on how visual voicemail works so......

    It happened to me more frequently when I was with Verizon than it has on AT&T.

    Yup happened to me today, someone left a voicemail at 1pm, got it at 6pm, luckily it wasn't anything important.

    It happened a lot more frequently when I was with Verizon.

    This happened to me for the first time in a year with my iPhone. It seemed to be related to being on WiFi and not Edge/3G.

    Anyone know if you can get Voice Mails over WiFi?

    Only after 2.02

    Mine worked fine until the 2.02 update. It seems like restarting the phone gets the missing voicemails to deliver. Has anyone had problems pre-2.02?

    Unfortunately this has been happening with at&t for years, and so far they have never fixed it. My son called my wife several days ago (she has a Nokia flip phone) and she didn't get his voice mail until about 5 days later. It makes VM pretty much useless, as you can never depend on it.

    Happens way more frequently than I care to admit

    Had this same problem last week and again yesterday.

    Last week it might have cost my wife and I a potential house sale, since we missed two calls from our agent asking to show our house.

    Happened again last night: got a voice mail at 4:30 that didn't show up until 9pm.

    Completely unacceptable.
