Voicemail indicator stuck: T-Mobile myTouch Q by LG

Understanding the Issue



  • Message waiting indicator automatically populates after activation.
  • When checking voicemail inbox indicates there are no messages available.


What happens and why


The message waiting indicator (MWI) populates due to an automatic system update for new SIM card activations. The MWI was created to encourage new customers to set up their voicemail inbox and greeting, but has not been updated to fit the changes for new SIM cards for existing customers.


The voicemail systems will be updated shortly to remove this prompt, based on the SIM card evolution that has occurred.
