Tap the voicemail app, Menu, Compose, Record(Just a few seconds), Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.... that is v v m, Once you send it give it like 2 mins and if you have any messages in the mail box they will all come through.
I have been having the same problem with my voicemail where i couldnt get them and i had to call to even find out that i had any. I tried this email thing to my voice mail and now it works. Thanks a lot for the tip. I sat on the phone with support for an hour today for them to say they fixed it and it should work with in the hour. ten hours later nothing worked still until i tried this and it worked within a min. Thank you for the help.
Was getting msgs just fine for 8 months and then my voicemail notifications starting getting buggy in the past week: I get the one that requires I call in to get messages and only sometimes a ntifcation from the visual voicemail client. Just checked settings and all looks normal--I never changed anything.
The only thing that sort of coincides with the issue is that I tried to sign up for the voice-to-text service and that was a fail: the process never completed on their end.
Anyone else with this issue? It's driving me crazy to have to call in for voicemail and listen to them read #s to see who msgs are from...
ok for those of you who just can't figure it out. i tried this and it finally worked.
make sure you turn off handcent (or what ever it is ur using) as your default sms system. settings>application settings>default messaging application. (default is disabled)
then do the few second message to email@example.com.
i thought i was cool enough to know what i was doing. lol... but i realized im as cool as the sun's f@rt. anywho ... if you figitted with your handcent settings or 3rd party sms app, and can't figure out why vvm stopped working. try that!
Ok, so I have gotten my VVM back, however I did notice something strange...I check my Voicemail from a landline on occasion, what USED to happen up until this week is that when listening to my voicemail it would also spit back to me the number that it came from and allow me the option to call back. Not any longer...Does anyone know how to retrieve this option?
This worked!!! I also fiddled with the Handcent settings and screwed it up. I now have my voice mail back but can comeone tell me how to set different notification sounds for e-mails and messages. That was the reason I put in Handcent in the first place but now that it is not the default it does not play the distinct notification. I'll get rid of handcent if I can play seperate sounds for messages and e-mails
