How do I get my voice mail to show up as visual voice mail?

How do I get my voice mail to show up as visual voicemail?  I have to check my voice mails the old school way by calling the number and entering my password and listening to everything in order.  I want to be able to see it on the screen and click which one to hear. My old iPhone did this, so I know it is possible.

blueiris717,

Well this is concerning and we don't want your visual voicemail to be an issue! Which model iPhone do you have now? What do you see when you go to the voicemail section in your phone app?

I have an iPhone 5s. When I click the voicemail icon, it starts dialing my voicemail.
