Signal is excellent. Everything else besides visual VM works fine. And regarding background data, it is called "data saver" in Android 9, and the feature was already turned off, meanin background data is allowed. What's the next step?

I have had the same problem on my Pixel 2. After several calls and tech support saying it's fixed...I finally solved it on my own. 

Delete/cancel/unblock all the blocked #s on your phone. 

I had maybe 25 or so that I had blocked because they were spam. Once they were cleared, my visual voicemail returned.

Verizon: your customer service agents were seemed well trained, but couldn't solve the issue. They elevated the problem 3 times to tech support and all 3 times they reported that the problem was solved, but it never was. 0 for 3 super frustrating.

Hi, thanks for the response. Unfortunately, I tried what you suggested and it didn't work. I appreciate the response, much better than Verizon's customer no-service.

If we're going to go over such exceedingly basic stuff, we're never going to figure this out.  Yes, it's enabled. Have tried toggling it many times. Also tried a soft reset, hard reset, having VZ delete voicemail from my acct and readd it, and swapping the SIM card.

OMG this worked!!! It was so easy holy cow! I know this is a whole year later, but I've been dealing with this EXACT same issue for almost 6 months! I was on the phone with tech for over 3 hours and nothing worked. Even factory reset my phone and everything. All I had to do was this??? I'm kicking myself. Thank you so much! Seriously, thank you.
