    I had the exact same problem when I first got my iPhone.
    The answer? My SIM card was of an older generation; specifically, the 9th through 12th numbers on the card should be 4000 in order for the phone to correctly display a voicemail indicator.

    Go into AT&T and purchase a new SIM card (I'm not sure how much they are in the States, but they're $35 here in Canada), and process that SIM card onto your account.

    That's what I did and it fixed my phone :)

    If there is something wrong with the sim card, then there is no fee. If they charge you, then you can contact Rogers/Fido yourself and they should credit your account.

    Well actually in my scenario, I've had a few extra 4000-series SIM cards from newer phones that I've recently purchased. Luckily I wasn't charged :p

    But $35 for a card is extortion. Never knew that they can credit your account if you say something ;P
