Ok.what if you are on the voicemail thing and don't know your Passcode and can't get off and the question mark button won't work...
If you restored from an unencrypted backup, you will need to enter password for your Apple ID, email and other accounts and voicemail again. If you've forgotten your voicemail password, contact your carrier. My question is that I tried the apple ID and it doesnt work. Please advise on where I may find this password.
Is there a setting to show new voicemail on my lock screen? If I miss seeing or hearing an incoming message and don't check my voicemail manually, I miss many voicemail messages for long periods of time. Is there a setting that notifies you of a new voicemail on your lockscreen, or at least on your home page of apps? A notification that stays there till you listen to the actual message? Steve
DNS feature not working properly after latest update. When DNS is active calls from Favorites do not go through and is sent to voicemail. Texts from favorites also do not go through. Why even have this feature when it does not function properly.
As anyone else had this issue? The phone is sitting right next to me does not ring but a new voicemail pops up. There is no missed call under recent activity. Had a friend call the phone standing right next to me and it also went straight to voicemail???
My voice mail indicator on my iPhone 5 is not letting me know when I have voicemail.
Today, I locked the screen of my iPhone4 and went to look at something RIGHT AFTER but my screen will not turn on. Plugged it into my charger and nothing. Also plugged it into my computer to see if it would pop up on itunes so I could restore it and STILL NOTHING. It doesnt go straight to voicemail when you call so I guess it's not 'off'. Also, my lock button is broken and Ive been using the assisstive touch button. So I can't just reset it. SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE.
I want to know how to change the amount of rings the phone will ring before it gets sent to my voicemail. Thank you
Dear Apple: When will you create the necessary carrier files for those of us using our unlocked iPhones with T-Mobile here in the US so we can use their available visual voicemail? Please help!
Phone was working fine till yesterday, no it says no network and when I go into phone settings it says - sim not provisioned. It's an iphone 4. please help...
hello. i recently turned on my iphone and it started to glitch out, being really slow and i turned it off to see ifmaybe it would cool down and when i when to go turn i back on the back light is on but no visual? and ive tried resetting it.. what do i do?
I reset my phone to factory setting and now I am being asked for a voicemail password. Can someone help to unlock my voicemail?.
My phone no longer can access the internet or voicemail after restoring from itunes. Works fine after I Erase All Content and Settings. Once I restore, internet no longer works and voicemail indicator. I worked with ATT support for 4+ hours over multiple days with no resolution. I purchased a new phone as I thought it was my hardware, and it happens on the new phone as well. Any hope would be appreciated.
Dear Apple, When will we be able to leave a FaceTime voicemail? It's annoying that it just rings on forever...it must be possible! We believe! Sincerely, FaceTime Users
My iphone 4 only turns on when plugged into a charger.Previously, it had minimal water damage but I successfully got it in working order - restored it, dl'd apps, made calls, played music fully functional (or so I thought).There is nothing wrong with the lcd, visually, or phsyically, I am able to see and flip through apps.On the flip side, once I unplug the iphone from the charger, when it is inactive and on sleep mode, it doesn't want to turn back on, unless I plug it in to the charger. Note, as soon as I plug it in, it will turn the phone on whilst taking a picture of the screen... as if I pressed the sleep and home button simulatenously to take a photo of the current on the iphone. Everytime, it doesn't fail. Now that the battery is fully charged, it won't turn on even when I do plug it into the charger.I tested if my phone was really off by calling it but its not considering that it doesn't go straight to voicemail, it just continues to ring then goes to voicemail after the normal duration of not picking up.Lastly, one thing I notice is that the backlight of the iphone 4 is still on for some reason, like a dim light thats only noticable when you the lights are turned off. I know this is lengthy but I'm in need of help on pin pointing the issue. Any feedback would be much appreciated thanks!
I'm having a few problems with the sound of my iphone 4s. I sometimes receive a tone when a text message, email/alert comes through but not all the time. My ringtone also doesnt work all the time. I rang my mobile off work phone and it one rings then automatically goes to voicemail. My phone shows a missed call but it never actually made a noise. Have read quite a few posts on similar issues but mine seems to play my music through my phone fine (at the moment anyway). I'm concerned incase it affects my alarm as it's my clock for work. Through my headphones I can hear when a message comes through and also it rings. Any ideas on what it could be/how to fix it? Thanks x
I do not get an alert when somebody leaves a message on my voicemail. Is this a phone issue or a setting problem?
I have had my Iphone 4 about a year and a half and I have always had voice mail. then with out warning I got told I had no personal message on my voice mai. I tried to access it and all I get is a message saying voicemail unavailable Unable to initiate connection. I never changed anything so to it to AT&T and they tried to get it to work no luck and then they said take it to Apple. What do I do?
At this time, visual Voice Mail with AT&T is down in some areas. AT&T knows about the issue and is working on getting it resolved per a rep I just spoke to.
My phone displays missed calls but never that a voicemail was left. I have to dial in to hear messages. Anyone else having this issue? I am 4s with ATT.
Did update to ATT voicemail viewer now won't open, crashes immediately. I have deleted and reinstalled. Still won't work.
I received a voicemail and a red circle showed up on my phone icon. I went to my voicemail, listened to the msg and deleted it, but the red dot is still there. anyone having the same problem?
Just did the App update for the AT&T voicemail Viewer, and now it crashes upon opening. Any fix yet? can I roll back to last version?
I got my first ever iPhone on 9/21/12. Immediately, when I opened the package, I noticed a scratch in the aluminum side. I read a lot of posts on this forum about scratches, but I decided I would let it go since my scratch wasn't that big. Two days later, I realized that the battery life was terrible and only lasts me about a day and a half before I have to recharge again. I also noticed that whenever I had to type in my password for the App Store to buy an app, the screen would flicker on the second row of keys on the keyboard when I switched to the numbers (9/23). That problem seems to have disappeared for now ever since I updated the software. The voicemail doesn't seem to work unless I turn the cellular data off (I think that's just because I don't know how it works) and I receive voicemails LATE. Lately, this month, I have noticed that my iPhone 5 screen freezes midway whenever I try to swipe to the next pages. It also freezes every half second when I am trying to type anything. The "send" button also doesn't respond to me when I press it. The home screen button is the only thing that I can press to unfreeze everything, but it's getting really frustrating to do that every other second. Since two days ago, whenever I am repeatedly trying to press an app or swipe, random apps start to open up even though my finger is no where near it. Lately, it has also been unresponsive to any touch (like sliding to unlock), but I wonder if it's because my hands are too cold... Just a few minutes ago, my iPhone was acting possessed and started opening up a text conversation and switching to another text BY ITSELF. I wasn't even touching it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What can I do? Is it too late to bring it to the Apple Store to get a new one? It's been two months since I opened it and I have never dropped it and I kept the original screen protectors on it for a month until my actual screen protectors arrived.
Have Password Incorrect, enter voicemail password message popping up. Now im unable to unlock my phone shut it down or enter password. How do i fix this?
My iPhone 4S fell out of my jacket pocket onto the hard ground and I've managed to chip it around the edge of the screen (the very edge, sort of plastic bit). There's about 7 chips, some bigger than others around the edge of the back and front glass sections. Is there away to fix this or replace them? My iPhone works fine, I'm just upset I've managed to cause quite a lot of visual damage to my new phone. How much would a replacement part cost and how much to be installed? Thanks
When I use the switch and then come out of it the phone doesn't ring or call goes straight to voicemail
Hi all, I have an iPhone 5 which worked perfectly with ios6.0 and I had none of all of the reported issues with that version. I now have updated to ios 6.0.1 and am facing major issues making calls. My cellular network shows 4 bars but none of my calls hook the network and I cannot make calls, unless I switch off/on the airplane mode. But it would only work back for few minutes. . My phone is not even ringing when people call me. It goes directly to voicemail. Anybody experiencing this problem? Is it a hardware issue? I must say, at the same location, my blackberry works perfectly.
I just got the iphone5 today. I can't get the visual vm. I got the "primative" vm. I have read all the forums. I have treied hard and soft resets. I have tried all other things that I can find. Help!
Not long after activating my iPhone 5 with Verizon, my visual voicemail stopped working. In addition, I was not even receiveing notifications when I had voicemail. The only way for me to check and/or listen to voicemail was to do it the old fashioned way by dialing *86. Verizon technical support had me check and recheck every setting on the phone but noting fixed the issue. I was told that one of the possible causes could be a specific app. "Onavo Extend". It's an app that is supposed to "stretch" your data plan and also lets you track how much data each specifc app uses. After deleting the app, I was still unable to access visual voicemail. After a little more playing around, I found that deleting the app does not remove the profile that it installed on the phone. You need to manually remove the profile (Under Settings / General / Profiles). After removing the profile I reset the phone (Hold the power and home button at the same time until the phone shuts off) and everything worked fine.....my visual voicemail was back. You may need to remove the profile more than once. For some reason after removing the profile the first time and restarting the phone, he profile reappeared. Hope this helps!
Good evening! One week ago I've updated my phone to iOS 6. About three days later I noticed, that battery dies much faster than before updating. That's not a problem, I could only start waiting for update with fixes, BUT. Nearly the next day after updating I've dropped my iPhone. It was in a case, so there are no visual damages. Moreover, the height was not extremely big, about 80-100 cm. And now I can't find out the true reason of battery problems. What's the cause - iOS 6 or a drop? Does anyone with 4S and iOS 6 have such a probem wih battery?
I know this is supposedly not possible, but I need to retrieve a specific voicemail from my iPhone which was also "cleared" from the Deleted Messages box. Any suggestions? This is highly important. I know the number from which the voicemail arrived, but have not been able to figure out how to retrieve it. I accidentally had the voicemail in the Deleted Messages folder, and then Cleared this folder. If there is any possible way I might be able to retrieve this message, even if there is a cost associated with it, please help me. Thank you.
Hi I just recently purchased an iPhone 5 and was keen to use spoken directions with turn by turn when using maps. However, I can not get it to speak the directions and there does not seem to be an option to turn it on. I have ensured that I have an accurate current location & destination. I have the icon for car highlighted. I then press the Route button and it shows the direction clearly on the map, but when I press Start I only get the visual green signs and no sound. I have checked that Map settings has Navigation Voice Volume set to Normal and have also tried Loud. Am I missing something? I am in Australia, and wonder if we don't get this feature? Help appreciated.
For no reason known to a seasoned iPhone user, as I setup my new iPhone 5, a popup asked for my voicemail password! I have never had a voicemail password and had no idea what it was, so I entered some numbers that might be the one, but iPhone just kept asking for this. Never did it tell me it was wrong or Try again. I finally called AT&T and they reset the PW and I should change it. But WHY???? Is there any need for this to be different than the iPhone 4 or 4S, with all the added frustration. Maybe there is a logical reason for such a password, as it allows one to get voice messages from any phone. Maybe this service has value, but might that be better served with an OPT IN or OPT OUT question during the setup rather than the confusion with a one answer dialog box. Comment welcome!
So yesterday my phone started acting up. Three things....voicemail starts then pauses. push play again and it will play another second then stop again. Same thing with video and music!! Also screen wont turn off by itself. Turned off phone yesterday and when it restarted it was fine. Then by the time this morning came along same problems. My phone is only about a month old and I have then new iOS 5 update. Thanks for any suggestions.
Why us there no sound when I listen to voicemail messages ?
voicemail on my Verizon iPhone 5 is almost useless. Does anyone have the same problem OR has anyone solved this problem? Calls take so long to go to voice mail (Verizon says 40 seconds) that my callers hang up before getting to voice mail. And calls to my Google Voice number which rings my Verizon iPhone go to Google voicemail (after 25 seconds) before Verizon voicemail picks up so I don't get to use visual voicemail. We just switched to Verizon from AT&T (iPhone) and Sprint and we never had this problem before. Looking online it appears that AT&T and Sprint make it very easy for their customers to set the amount of rings (or time) that a call takes before going to voicemail. Verizon has given me conflicting information but no solution. They have said: 1. It is set to 40 seconds for everyon and you cannot change it.2. They can set it between 15 seconds and 40 seconds in 5 second increments3. They can set it to different times BUT it resets back to the default 40 seconds Help! How do I change the time it takes for Verizon to go to voicemail on my iPhone to 20 seconds or less?
Every now and again, my visual voicemail will duplicate messages that are showing in the mailbox. I can end up with four idential messages sitting in my voicemail box, which is somewhat annoying. Does anyone know why this is occuring and how I would fix it?
So is there something wrong with my phone? Do I need to have it replaced? I am constantly having to "reset network settings" to get features to work. I notice it occasionally loses service. I notice that often it will not let me send SMS text messages, especially picture texts. I notice that I am often not receiving voicemails. How am I supposed to know if I have a voicemail if I have to reset the network settings to get the voicemail to come through? All of the above are temporarily fixed when I go settings > general > reset > reset network settings I have verizon. I work in the same office and live in the same house. I have had an iphone 4 for 2 or 3 years now with no problems. Nothing about any of my locations has changed. All I did was upgrade to the iphone 5. What should I do? Any ideas? I shouldn't have to reset network settings that often. Can I take my phone to an apple store and just swap it out with a new one? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help!David
I recently updated my software, and since have been encountering a problem. I searched around on the internet and this forum, but haven't seen anyone else report this issue. Hoping someone out there can help Prior to the update:When I was on a call and someone else called me, it would display their name and few options such as Hold Call and Answer, Ignore, End Call and Answer, etc. (I don't recall the exact wording). My phone log would still log the incoming call, regardless of answering it or not. After the update:When I am on a call and someone else calls me, the new caller name is not displayed, and the options on the current call stay almost the same. The only change is the "Join Calls" feature isn't greyed out anymore. Since I can't click over, I miss the phone call. My call log doesn't register the call, so there is no way of knowing who I missed a call from unless they leave a voicemail. Any ideas on why this isn't working?
My iPhone 4S has stopped sending/receiving video or text pictures! I thought after I updating to os6 that that might help but no change. The other issue is that I never get the red phone icon to let me know I have a voicemail message. Any suggestions? Thanks!
My phone was working one moment and then it shut off. I couldn't turn it back on so I plugged it in to the wall jack. After about 5 minutes it turned back on but was not getting cell phone service. I tried to make a call and it didn't work...nor did the voicemail. I then unplugged it to take it to my computer to restore it and it shut off again. This time, as it was connected to the computer, the start up "apple" kept coming on and then turning off. This contiues to happen when connected to the computer. What do I do from here? The only "different" thing that I did with my phone is update my "Fatbooth", "Baldbooth", and "Aging Booth". I'm assuming that as soon as the phone was done with the updates that my phone started doing this. During the updates I set it down for a few minutes and when I reruned after a few minutes (5-10 min) I noticed the phone My theory: My phone battery needs to be replaced. OR the updates that the Apps required made my phone crash or had a virus. *Sidenote: My phone's "silent button" (the one on the top) does not work at all. So I can't manually restart the phone.
can't get voicemail on new phone
I forgot my voicemail password. How do I fix this?
I am having visual scratches problem while entering my apple id password in app store..i am really worried...how can i solve this problem??
Everytime I want to listen to a voicemail, I have to turn my phone off & then back on. I can listen to one voicemail message, then have to turn it off and on again to listen to another one. PLUS, Siri pops up everytime I put the phone to my ear when trying to listen to a voicemail message.
I can hardly hear my voicemail messages because the sound is so weak. Callers voices are weak too. Music sounds fine. What is the problem?
How do you set up voicemail?
I just bought a 4s today and upgraded to ios6. Now incoming calls are going straight to voicemail. Do not disturb is NOT on.
