    Are you implying that you are in Japan?
    ...and what do you mean you "miss" the feature?
    Are you just visiting? Did you move there?

    you could always test it out yourself.. ;)
    you know.. call your mobile from another line perhaps? Or get someone to leave you a voicemail..

    at least then you'll know if it works or not :D

    Are you roaming in Japan? I think if you have EDGE Roaming turned off then it wont work.

    sorry i will clarify, i am stationed here in japan and just got my 3G. I had the 1.0iphone since day one, hints the "miss it" part. i know that on the old iphone if you press the voicemail tab, even without having voicemails, that it would take you to an empty visual voicemail screen. I received a voicemail the other day which is how i found out that the visual part wasn't working.

    o and he is right, 3G is everywhere here and is the lowest speed internet that we can get on cellphones

    SoftBank are making a small charge for Visual Voice mail, Call Waiting & Conference Call. Have you added these services to your account?

    If you ever listen to Metropolis magazine's "Metpod", they continually repeat that staff in the Omote-Sando Softbank branch speak fluent English.
