    They mean you cant use the "visual" voicemail feature with the data plan. You will still have basic voicemail. When you go to the voicemail tab it will take you to your inbox.

    You can try one of two things:

    1. Call AT&T, sounds like a network issue.

    2. Restore the iphone in Itunes and let Itunes re-activate it with your simcard.

    Also, remember, your phone "dna" will be sent to AT&T when the phone is active and they will eventually notice your using an Iphone and make you add the "iphone data plan".

    Plug your iphone into Itunes, it will recognize it and give you a screen for the phone. Sync your phone with Itunes first, so it will keep your info, sms msg, settings, etc. Then, in the middle of that screen should be a button that says "restore". Hit it.

    When its done there will be a button in the middle to "activate as new phone" or "restore from backup". Hit "restore from backup" to use the backup you just made.

    But, if that doesnt change anything, I would call AT&T.

    it still comes up busy when i try to call my iphone, but im supposed to have basic voicemail right because when i called before they said no you have to have visual voice

    Unless they have changed the system. Used to be if you slap a simcard into an iphone it would work off the bat, with basic voicemail.

    I would call them, but dont say im using an iphone off the bat, just tell them your voicemail isnt working.

    You need to Call At&t and have them reset your voicemail.

    While your at it, check out You could get about as close to VVM as possible with this service. It's free, and awesome to use. I'm not spamming, I used to use the service when I had my last mobile and loved it.
