    Switch to AT&T.

    Visual voicemail is an AT&T-specific function as of right now. When the market opens up to other provides, you will see it offered by other providers.

    As Ive seen this thread, rather than making another one I jus wanted to ask a question. I seemed to have notice that whenever i do any of the following:

    • switch off the phone
    • respring springboard
    • remove the phone app from multi-task

    Whenever i open up the visual voicemail again, it asks me to retrieve my voicemail. Just wondering why this seems to happen? Should it happen, should it just go straight to the voicemail without me having to keep doing this everytime.

    I've got an iPhone 4 and I'm on O2 UK.

    You have visual voicemail on your iphone by default if you have AT&T. It' in the Phone app under voicemail. The ability to actually see your voicemails on that page and play them/scrub through them from there instead of calling a number and listening to prompts is called "visual voicemail".

    Ah Thanks. I thought we were able to send a voicemail through facetime or something. Thanks again

    FacePlant is suppose to let you do just that. You will be able to leave VideoMail if the other person is not available for facetime.

    I don;t think it have been release yet.

    Does using visual voicemail use up minutes? I have always wondered.

    Why would it? You never actually call a number. It's the form of transferred sound files.

    I wouldn't think it would use up minutes because there's no category for "Mobile to Voicemail section", there's only "Mobile to Mobile", etc...not sure though

    For visual mail on a network that doesn't support it try Hullomail. Make sure you set it to alert you by text message though, otherwise you'll never know you've got a message if you don't have a data connection. (I'm on the Vodafone network (UK))

    Hullo Mail

    If you want visual voicemail on your iPhone try downloading Hullomail from the App store.

    Its Free !!! - And it works on most networks. The App lets you know if your network is (or isn't) compatible when you run it for the first time.

    You then use the new Hullomail icon for voicemail. You no longer open the phone app and then select voicemail - which saves a few finger presses.

    The App is awesome. Push notifications for missed calls when you were out of service etc. Definitely one of my better selections from the App store !!

    Try It - Its Free !!

    (I'm in the UK on Network Orange)

    Not sure how it works with AT&T, but here in Canada (using Telus), it shows on your bill as airtime when you listen to voicemail.
