    Hello!

    My voice mail icon has not been showing up on the top ribbon on my phone.

    I just happened to accidentally dial my voice mail today and it said I had NINE messages, but my phone NEVER showed the voice mail status or that I had any voice mails waiting.

    How do I get it to show when I get a voice mail??


    Thanks!!

    :)

    This happened to me when I tried using a third party messaging app. The stupid voicemail on this phone gets messed up by third party texting apps.

    I have no 3rd msg party apps either. I also don't use the voice mail app that can on the phone (since the update that wants to charge you for extra features). My voice mail notification never shows at the top either.

    I just have to remember when I get a missed call notification at the top, to go in to the phone dialer and press 1 to manually check the voicemail.

    I am having the same issue! I just noticed I checked voicemail today and had nine message also (funny!).

    There is a voicemail APP, if you go in there there is a notification setting.
    However, I have that turned ON, but still get no notification at the top.
    If you go into Settings->Apps and select the Voicemail app, make sure notification is also turned on there. After I did that, then I started getting notifications.
    You can update the voicemail app and chose to not do the premium service.

    However, I am wondering if that is the default android voicemail notification or just some android app? I don't remember seeing this app on my older android phone. (is it new or some bloatware?)

    Thanks for the tip. I think it is a bloatware app. I don't believe it was on my LG Optimus Elite. I didn't like or want the voicemail app. So I have mine frozen with Link2SD. I wish there was some internal thing that put the voicemail notification at the top, but I can live without it by checking for a voicemail manually when I see I missed a call. (I don't get many calls.)
