Noticed my phone keeps ringing if I can't answer it - doesn't switch over to voice mail.  Tried to access my voice mail but get busy signal each time.  This situation has existed for about 2 weeks.  Any thoughts?

OK, they fixed it at tier level 2. FYI, for some reason my voice mail got switched off.

Thank you for your assistance.

What is your phone model? Did you setup the voicemail before?

Did you switch phones recently for example did you switch from an Android phone to iPhone or the reverse?

No. I've been using the same phone for years.

I have a Samsung S4.

Don't remember downloading any new apps. Is there a way to list the Applications that have been download in chronological order?

I did recently travel outside of my area (Minnesota) - went to Washington DC. Not sure, but perhaps around the same time problem started.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 was affected by the discontinuation of the $2.99 visual voicemail back in July 2016. Were you paying for the Visual Voicemail feature at that time? Or were you always using the basic non-visual voicemail? When the visual voicemail was discontinued, you would have needed to setup your voicemail again for the basic non-visual voicemail. If you didn't, it is possible the feature was dropped off the line like it is for new customers who never setup their voicemail when they were new customers.

If you were always a basic non-visual voicemail user, then it doesn't make sense to to suddenly not have it working.

I did/don't have visual voice mail.

When I dial "*86" as described in your link - I get the busy signal again.

Any other thoughts?
