VOIP voicemail not anwering
If I call my digital home phone from my cell (non-AT&T) it just rings without going to voicemail. I went through the painful process of setting up VM using the *98 process, but it still doesn't pick up. I've found various instructions on how to turn it on, but they all refer to pages that no longer exist or don't resemble the page I see when I follow the link.
The account overview page shows that I *am* logged in, and it correctly shows our services (fiber internet 300 and AT&T phone unlimited North America) and usage, but under "Manage my phone" I see only info on my calling plan and current usage, then a bunch of links to support pages- no way to view or change any phone settings.
Could there be something wrong with my account setup?

Thanks for the quick reply, Raiden.
I called customer support and the nice lady spotted the problem- there was, in fact, a problem with my account. Somehow I was able to proceed without accepting some Terms & Conditions, and that disabled all operational controls for my account. She said I should see a notification to that effect in the MyATT header of the account overview, but I couldn't find any.
To resolve it, I had to go to att.net/uverse and set up a member ID, and there I found the T&C I needed, and I was able to set up and access my VM.
