Why won't my voicemail work?

Why won't my voicemail work?

Hi all. 

 

My iPhone 4 voicemail seems to be a bit messed up at the moment.  My voicemail is set up but I never get any of the messages that are left.  My girlfreind calls and sometimes leaves voicemails and they never show up.  I've never gotten a voicemail while I've had this phone either.  I'm waiting to hear back for a new job so my voicemail is really important and I need to get this fixed.  Any ideas?

Do you have cellular data turned off? Visual Voicemail requires that cellular data be present and turned on

Did you switch from a basic phone to a regular phone? If so, you will need to change your features from basic voicemail to visual voicemail. Call your basic voicemail by dialing one and go through prompts. Than power off the phone and the visual voicemail should work.

Also go to settings and look for phone settings and voicemail box number. Is it the same as your number.

If these options don't work, call customer service and have them 1.) reset voicemail password 2.) make sure voicemail box is properly set.
