Question Inspire voicemail notification

I tried to set up voicemail through AT&T but it "did not recognize mailbox" so I set up a Google Voice account. Now I don't get a voicemail notification in my status bar! Help? I just switched from the iPhone to the Inspire so I'm very new with Android/HTC.

If you just switched from an iPhone, the rep at the store most likely forgot to re add "Basic Voicemail" back on your account. The iphone has visual voicemail as I'm sure you know, but when lines get upgraded, the system removes the visual voicemail but does not automatically add the regular voicemail. Just call att or stop back by the store you bought it from and have it checked out.

Try this:

Google Voice > Menu > Settings > Sync and Notifications

There should be an option to select "Inbox Notifications" and once you have that checked, it should then notify you in the status bar when a new VM arrives

I do not see Google Voice on my all apps menu. I see google search and then at the bottom is voice dialer, voice recorder, and voice search.
