Re: No silent voicemails

What are "silent voicemails"? (Calls that go to voicemail without ringing? voicemails that don't say anything?)

We need to know what you are talking about before anyone can help you.

The calls that go straight to voice mail without ringing the phone.

Re: No silent voicemails

Are they known contacts or blocked calls? Does it happen to only certain callers?

Do you have good service in the area where the phone doesn't ring?

Does it happen all the time or only in certain areas or at certain times? 

What phone do you have?

Re: No silent voicemails

I have a samsung a437.  I get good reception.  What they are doing is going into voice mail and sending a message and the number does not show up on my detail billing.  When sent that way the phone does not ring it goes straight to voicemail.

Re: No silent voicemails

I believe what you are referring to is to leave someone a message without calling them. You can do that by dailing into your voicemail and one of the options is send a message. You will then be asked to enter the number, and then you can record a message which will be sent to that person's voicemail.
