Thread: Voicemail indicator on after reboot.

  1. #1
    Default Voicemail indicator on after reboot.
    My voicemail indicator is always on after a reboot whether I have voicemail or not. I'm guessing it's because I'm on T-mobile. Is anyone else have this issue? Not a big problem but it's very annoying.

    When you finish listening to Voicemail, do you properly sign out or do you simply hang up? The voicemail indicator needs to know that the voicemails have been listened to, and it does that by getting the proper signal from your server. Try sending yourself another voicemail, listen to it, then log out. With our company you log out by pressing "*". Not sure what it is for T-mobile.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    Thanks for reply. After I listen my msg. I delete 'em (by pressing 7)then the indicator is gone until I reboot. After reboot, it' on again even though there is no msg in my voicemail box. It never happen with any other phone I had.

    Yeah I have this same issue. I'm guessing it has something to do with being on Tmo. It happens every time I reboot or lose and reacquire a signal. Only way I've found to get rid of it is check my voicemail, even though there isn't any.

    Pull out the sim card, power off. Power on and then reinsert the sim card... see if that works.

    Good question- same thing happens to me. Even when I turn the phone off and back on again. Nothing seems to fix it.

    This has been discussed many times and if you search you can find the answer. You currently have an older sim card and to get rid of the voice mail notification after rebooting you need to buy a new sim card. You can go to a T-Mobile store and buy a new sim card for $20, sometimes they will give you one for free, and then your problem will be fixed.

    Thanks for the answer-I've had the same problem for the last year but I've just toughed it out. Has anyone actually done this and had success? I don't wanna fork out the $20 if it doesn't work, ya know? PS what kind of SIM card do you request? or is there just one type? Thanks!

    From personal experience and the several threads on this subject, it works. Just go to a T-Mobile store or authorized dealer and ask for a new sim. Just say you have an older version and it's been giving you voicemail problems. Usually they won't ask questions and they will just port your number to the new sim and your problem will be fixed.

    Hey guys, this definitely worked for me. I went to the T-Mobile store and asked them for a new SIM card. The guy didn't want to charge me 20 bucks so he told me to buy something on clearance and he'd throw the card in for free. Best of all-it worked! No more damn false voicemail notification. It doesn't say the # of voicemails, but I think thats an AT&T only feature. Hope this helped!
