Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
My iphone's visual voice mail was working perfectly, and then stopped. i didn't change anything and this is an "untampered" iphone, so only the original components. how do i get visual voice mail back?
It took 2 weeks for AT&T to figure this out. Essentially, you have to be on the Edge network for the Visual Voicemail to work. I was on wi-fi, and was therefore the VM was not working. The easy fix for me: press and hold the home button (round button at bottom) and the power button simultaneously. then slide the bar over that appears on the screen. this will get you back on the Edge network, and problem solved. you will know you are on the Edge when the "E" appears at the top near your service bars. hope this solves your problem.

I would suggest the following... It is the easiest solution going.
simply go to your local at&t store and tell them that you need a blank simcard that you can put into your iphone and activate at home.
once you do that you will want to take the simcard out of the iphone and put in the new sim.
Plug the iphone into your computer after youve installed the new sim.
You will then be guided through the itunes activation process.
once completed all features will be working and the voicemail will work on at&t's Visual voicemail settings.
Good Luck... This Will Work... All the best

If you delete but do not clear your deleted messages, you can run into this problem. As far as I can determine, it is a size based thing - you may find the first sign of problems is that small messages may appear but not big ones. Soon, however, all messages won't be automatically downloaded (but they will be waiting on the server).
The solution is simple - delete, permanently, all your deleted messages (at the bottom of the visual voice mail screen, choose deleted messages, then choose permanently delete).
While Apple has done a positively stunning job when they created the iPhone, there is a glitch here - there should be a warning that there is no space and messages can't be downloaded; unfortunately, there isn't.
It appears to be the case that deleted messages are automatically permanently deleted by the iPhone after some period of time (appears to be 30 days), else everybody would be running into this.
So the problem only occurs if you have a lot of messages in the last month; it has happened twice to me, and each time I had around 75 deleted messages.

Call AT&T. Sorry ... not intending to be silly, but that's why you pay $big bucks each month -- so that you can call them for support.
