Visual voicemail aka voicemail transcription isn't working on my brothers iphone 6 on ios10. Any idea how to get it to work? Is there an ATT setting under My Account to turn on visual voicemail?
Ive only tried Resettting Network settings on the iphone so far.

I just want this crappy transcription beta off my phone (iphone SE). The feature does not work and I can't listen to any voicemail messages. The transcription usually gets cut short and the message window won't stay open long enough to read the message. If it's Beta, why did they give it to everyone before it was ready?
I think it's just the actual text transcription that's supposed to be beta, I don't think it should be affecting your ability to listen to the voicemail function at all.
Why? They probably need a HUGE sample of voicemails to practice with, rolling it out was a way to get that...

Well, this problem is even worse than folks some are saying. On my 6S, fully updated, when there is a transcription I cannot hear the voicemail at all. Even when the progress bar show a 1+ minute message, it will not play. So despite @jdemon55's comment above, this problem IS affecting playback. And the transcription of course is not only incomplete (only about a screen worth of the message is transcribed), but it is also a crappy transcription if the sound quality of the message is anything less than perfect. Since I'm on ATT, that's much of the time!
This "feature" NEEDS AN OFF OPTION! NOW!!

I have an iphone 7, and when I got the phone the transcription worked fairly well. Suddenly it stopped transcribing, and would display the message, transcription unavailable or something similar. I went into an Apple store and the tech spent almost two hours with my phone - it had some other issues, as well - and said the transcription is a beta feature that doesn't always work. He said sometimes it takes up to 24 hours for a voice mail to transcribe! I never had to wait that long. However, now that he worked on the phone, transcription is no longer an option at all. It doesn't even try to transcribe, and it doesn't display any message as to the failure of such transcription. I didn't ask for the feature to go away entirely, but apparently there is a way to make it disappear. Just have an Apple tech work on your phone! Anyone know of a way to get it back?

I'm having the same problem. The last voicemail I received that transcribed was on December 27, 2016. Recent voicemails simply display "transcription not available". I'm not sure when it stopped working exactly though as I don't have any voicemails between the one that worked and one on Feb 11, 2017 that didn't. No voicemails since then though have transcribed.
