    I swap out between the iphone and nexus 6P every now and then and am having issues getting voicemail notifications after swapping the sim. I have Verizon and in the past, I use to just get a text with a bunch of letters and numbers letting me know there is an actual voicemail.

    Lately, no notification or text comes in letting me know there is a message in voicemail. Anyone here experience this? I have to constantly call Verizon to have them reset the voicemail for the phone I currently have the sim card in. Very frustrating.

    Have you tried using Verizon's voicemail app on your 6P? This worked when I had a 6p but I didn't switch between iPhone and the 6P at that time, just a few different android phones and used Verizon's visual voicemail app depending on which android phone I was using.

    I have and it didnt help, each time I change back to the iphone, they have to reset it back from scratch.

    ah, gotcha. I'm not sure then. I haven't been sim swapping from iPhone to Android since I've been on Verizon. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

    Not sure how it's like on Verizon, but on AT&T I know if I switch phones my voice-mail would reset because the iphone has a specific visual voice-mail add on, so when I used android it would sometimes still have that add on and it would try to send iphone voice-mail and I wouldn't get it. And sometimes the opposite was true, though on the iphone I would at least get the voice-mail notification but would have to dial in to listen.

    For this reason I started using Google voice for my voice-mail. Works great on android, and when using my iPhone I use the Google voice app.
