golfnutzaz, voicemail is an important feature to have working. I never want to miss a voicemail notification so I understand the importance to get this working for you. We are here to help find a resolution for you. Can you please explain in more detail what you mean about: Basic Voicemail doesn't give me any alert to message? What happens when you try to use your visual voicemail?
