Verizon visual voicemail, sending "STATUS" text messages
Lankmaster9000

When refreshing the Verizon visual voicemail, my phone sends a text message from me to 900080006200 that reads "STATUS". How do I prevent this? When the app refreshes itself on its own, this does not occur, only when forcing a manual refresh. I have the Nexus 6 phone.

I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled, with no improvement.

Lankmaster9000,

This certainly is an odd issue! There are couple of variations of Visual Voicemail. Could you please confirm which one you have? Click to view the different options, if necessary. http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/voice-mail-comparison/

Hello Lankmaster9000!


It sounds like there may be something going on with our system internally. Please send me a Direct Message, so I can get some additional details and help insure this is resolved.

I just installed Visual Voicemail on my Nexus 6 today and it sent the STATUS text message to 900080006200, too. Have we come up with a solution yet?

It says that michelleh_vzw and I are both following each other but it still refuses to allow me to send a message. It says we have to be following each other.....but we are.

This is more than frustrating, I just want some help on my problem, not mess around with Verizon's mess of a website.......

Please help!
