    Hi! I'm aware visual voicemail won't work on an iPhone on Straight Talk, but I should at least be getting a notification when someone leaves me a voicemail, correct? I'm not. How can I fix this? I don't like having to call myself every time I miss a call just to see if there's a voicemail.

    Thanks!

    If voicemail doesn't work, why do you think it will notify you about it in the first place?

    Voicemail works fine. Visual voicemail (the native iPhone voicemail app) does not. I've read other users still get their notifications when they receive a voicemail. I just have to call my voicemail every time I miss a call, just to make sure I don't have voicemail, and if my phone is off for a while, I have to call it to see if there are voicemails. It's a bit of a pain.

    I think notifications would be subscription based. I had a voicemail feature before for a local carrier, and I used it only a few times. It doesn't notify me by default, but customer service says I can request for the feature, they will text me if a voicemail is waiting. I just had to agree to the charge per sms.

    I'm not familiar with the iPhone voicemail system, but as far as I know, you should get some type of notifications.

    You can also use the Google Voice application, and have people call that number. If they leave a voicemail Google Voice should notify you of it. You might like Google Voice because it has a lot of features, and will send you an email with the voicemail if you'd like.

    I am having the exact same problem. I get the notification for missed calls (the little red dot) but no notifcations for voicemails. I dont care about visual voicemail I just want to know when I have a voicemail so I know to check it. Please help! I'm missing important messages!

    Have you tried using an applications such as Google Voice? They will provide you with another number, free of charge, and you can then call and leave a voicemail to test it.

    Google Voice does not work in countries beyond the US if I remember correctly.

    That might be correct, I'm not sure, but Straight Talk is in the United States and I believe that is what this thread is about.

    Hopefully there are alternatives to Google Voice that are available in other countries. If you're aware of any, please share them.

    Re: Not getting voicemail notifications on Straight Talk iPhone

    I'm having the same problem, oddly it started a few days ago. I have voicemails and can access them by dialing my number, but the "voicemail" icon on the iPhone shows visual voicemail and an empty list. Makes sense, since Straight Talk does not support Visual Voicemail, to my knowledge.

    Is there any way to disable visual voicemail? Seems like that would fix the issue.

    Using a jailbroken iPhone 4.S, 5.1.1
