Learn everything you need to know about your AT&T voicemail, including, setting it up, using visual voicemail, resetting the password, and other helpful troubleshooting steps if you run into any issues.


Setup
Ensure you setup your voicemail within 60 days of activation or it'll be automatically removed from your account.
If you wish to have the voicemail removed off your account, please send us a private message. Be sure to include your account number and a good number to reach you.
Go to our voicemail setup guide for step-by-step instructions on setting it up.

 

Accessing Voicemail

Visual Voicemail

Visual Voicemail is a free service that allows you to listen to your voicemail messages in any order you choose from an email-like inbox. You can easily play and delete messages, make callbacks, and manage voicemail features.
If you need to set it up or notice any issues with the visual voicemail not working, go to our help page to find out how to get it up and running.

I am trying to change my greeting remotely: I dial my cell number, wait for the greeting and press ‘*’ and it does not prompt me to enter a password. How can I change the greeting from another phone?

Having issues with my iPhone 7 as well. Purchased from the Apple store, set up with an AT&T prepaid plan, and while voicemails used to come through for a while, now they don’t. I’ve tried rebooting (a lot), resetting the voicemail password, and resetting the network settings, to no avail. I’m not notified of voicemails, voicemails never show up in the visual voicemail list, and in some cases, I’m not even notified of missed calls!!! This is insane!
