Look no further, help is here pete1234. Visual voicemail is an excellent feature that can be a real time saver to be able to quickly read messages rather than having to listen to them. Have you set up the feature on your line already? http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-83536/
If this is something you do not wish to have we may be able to remove it for you. Since I would need to access your account to do so, I am going to send you a message in private in our forums. Once you reply to that we can get started.
