    How do I do it?
    I know that's a dumb question but I am truly baffled, lol.
    When I had my iPhone I had no problems setting it up.
    No problems with it working.
    So I figured that it would just carry over.
    Well when I got my Captivate everyone that has called me said that it just rings and rings and rings and every once in a while they will get a message saying that I'm not available.
    Is there a way for me to reset it up?

    Call at&t and let them know. I don't think that there's a setting on your phone that can be causing this.

    I had the same issue and at&t had to change some setting from the iPhone specific ones I had prior. If your used to the iphone you should give Google voice a try once at&t fixes your initial issue.

    Google Voice is definitely the way to go. I'm using that and love it. Visual voice mail all integrated with the rest of your Google services.

    You need a new mailbox. The Iphone had the visual voicemail account and this would be a basic voicemail account. AT&T will take care of quickly.

    I used google voicemail for a little bit but moved back to the regular one.
