Default visual voicemail not working?

so heres my question...

i came from a verizon iphone 5 to a note 2. love the phone....except for no visual voicemail. so i downloaded a few different ones on google play, like youmail, hullo, etc. i thought that solved the answer, but it didnt. my wife asked me one day, why i wasnt picking up her calls. and i always do? or how she said it goes straight to voicemail. i got no miss calls from her? weird? so i deleted the app, installed a different app, same issue. so im back to using the stock voicemail.

is there any app that will work? does the verizon n2 support visual voicemail? any help would be appreciated. thanks.

Verizon has a service: visual voicemail.
Here is the link.
Calling Features: Visual Voice Mail | Verizon Wireless

Go to the Google Play Store and search for YouMail.

It's free and it works.

Can someone clarify this for a noob too? I just moved over to a Galaxy Note II from an iPhone 5, and on the old phone I'd see a little "1" or "2" on the icon alerting me that I had voicemail ... then when I clicked on the icon I'd see the list of voicemails and when they came in.

So which part of that, if any, is considered "visual voicemail"? Is the Galaxy Note II going to be alerting me in any way when I have a voicemail if I don't subscribe to their pay-extra service (nor download that YouMail thing the poster just up above mentioned)? Or do I just have to periodically go tap the icon and actually MAKE A PHONE CALL to find out? (That would be so 1980s, on a 2015 phone!)

I think Apple has some kind of patent for Visual Voicemail on smartphone OS. That's probably why visual voicemail is not built in to the android os. If you don't want to use any app, you will have to dial voicemail and listen to them. But there are lots of apps available to download to add this feature. I don't know about Verizon, but for AT&T, they have their own Visual Voicemail app. I use Hullomail, and others use Youmail. You will have to find one that works for you. But if you don't download or use any app, you will have to CALL voicemail like it is 1980.

I am still running it, and it shows in Play store as "HulloMail Free SmartVoicemail". Originally I had the AT&T visual voicemail, but it stopped working for about 2 weeks back last year and I switched to HulloMail ever since.

Understood, but just doing a search for it in the Play Store garnered no results.

Yup. U.S. Play Store. Though I am looking at it on the web.

It's not showing up if you go to a computer webpage. It is showing up if you search the store via your phone.

Odd.

Oh wow, it is very odd. It doesn't show up on the PC play store if you select "ALL device". But if you just select the Note II, it shows up! I guess Note II is NOT part of ALL android devices :P

Just wanted to kill the myth that this has anything to do with Android. To me, this sounds more like a Verizon limitation.

I have both the Sprint Note 2 and the International Note 2. Both have visual voicemail on it.
