Lumia 735 Windows voicemail notification

Trying to get voicemail notification on my phone.t

I've tried turning it on via the voicemail system but it tells me it's an invalid option.  I do not want to use Visual Voicemail.


Any thoughts or help?

The normal voicemail notification is a little symbol on the corner of the phone tile. If you have the tile minimized it's tough to see. I don't know if there is a more obtrusive notification possible, but it appears that the little vm icon on the tile's corner is all I have.

Voice mail notifications can be important. We don't want you to miss out on your messages. The Lumia 735 has a different set up for notifications. There is a section called the Action Center where notifications are displayed. Use this link for important details to know about your device: http://vz.to/1Pp1ifi

I'm on Windows 10 Mobile, an upgrade from Windows Phone 8.1, but what I had to do to get voicemail notifications was call VZW and have them disable visual voice mail.  Not just disable "advanced" or whatever it is, but remove visual voicemail altogether from the account for the device.  The 735 is apparently supposed to have visual voicemail but it doesn't work on my device and having it turned off altogether allowed me to start getting voicemail notifications.

I looked for an answer to this problem in February and March 2016 when my Lumia 735 was new.  Nobody could help me.  Decided to look again a few days ago after missing another important voicemail.  Chatted with customer support from VZW today.  Copied and pasted your solution in the chat.  Fixed in two minutes!  Thank you for sharing.
