B I can send sms' and my friends received them however I don't receive the reply... 3. Is there anyway to play tunes stored on the iphone such as as ring tones?
Pls read this solution COMPLETELY
"BEFORE" making attempt to fix the VVM.
If you have jailbreak or download a new profile or via MobileConfigs for internet tethering, there is a good chance the VVM will break also.
2 possibilities of faults:
Call your carrier, tell them you are having issue with the VVM (iPhone virtual voice mail), try to convince the carrier that the problem is with the provision database, which contains your VVM profile records somehow are corrupted and needs to be "removed" and "re-provisioned" or "re-created". This is a quick fix by level one support person to do within his power for the first attempt to fix your VVM with the pre-condition that you have not mess around with jailbreak and other hacking activities.
If the above carrier method fix did not work, most likely you need to head back to the Apple store to have a Apple tech to help you. If you go back to the carrier store, most likely, they will tell you it is a "known" problem for the iPhone. In any event, you have a better chance with a face to face time with Apple then the carrier folks, unless, you have a "real friend" in the carrier store.
Before you head to the Apple store and if you think you are savvy enough, you should have already tried to reset the iPhone in a number of ways:
a. iPhone --> Settings --> General --> Network --> Reset Network Settings
b. factory reset
c. reload current firmware version
d. change and re-initiate voice mail password using (http://www.wireless.att.com/support/knowledgeBase.do?content=KB81229.html)
4. Last Resort
a. goto your itune store on the iphone, search for "youmail" app to download and try, it is free.
b. exchange your iPhone with new iPhone from where you bought it from.

Go into settings - general - reset and then resetting network settings. This should restart your iPhone.
This alone didn't work, but dialling 1760 to switch off voicemail then 1750 to switch it on again. This works!

Are you using the SIM card that came with the phone or did you use one from another phone. Generally, the first 2 problems are associated with that or an SIM card that doesn't know isn't associated with iPhone. There are plans to allow you to use iTunes songs as ring tones in a future version of iTunes.
