iOS is 9.1. When I receive a voicemail, a red dot shows on the phone icon. When I tap the icon, the red dot is on "voicemail". A message at the top of the screen says that visual voicemail is not available, call voicemail. The only way I can retrieve my voicemail is by calling in. I do not have any voicemail setup options in the settings. I do not want visual voicemail. Phone worked fine before I upgraded to 9.1. How do I fix this, or do I need to take it to the nearest Verizon store?

Thanks for the reply. Before the upgrade I could see the voicemail messages, now I just get the "A message at the top of the screen says that visual voicemail is not available, call voicemail." I do not want visual voicemail, I am not even sure what that is. I want to be able to see who called, with the "play" button. I don't want to have to "call voicemail" in order to get my messages. How do I turn regular voice mail back on? Like I said before voicemail worked just fine before the upgrade. Any other suggestions?
Amy, I definitely understand your concern with the voicemail not working. We can lead you in the right direction. We also want to clarify that the previous way you checked your messages is considered “Visual Voicemail” so this is what you want to be activated on your iPhone. Usually if you’re getting the error that “Visual Voicemail isn’t available”, our technical support team would try and refresh the voicemail on our end.
