No voicemail notification on unlocked AT&T S7

whimsyraj

    I have an unlocked Samsung S7 and switched to T-Mobile.  I cannot get notification that I have a new voicemail.  I only know I have a message if I call my voicemail.  Visual Voicemail doesn't work either.  I have sooooo many tickets and no one can fix the problem.  Anyone else have this issue. Any work arounds?

        Just make sure the APN  settings are all correct.

        APN & data settings

        6. To reset your APN, tap the Menu icon and then tap Reset to default.
        7. If available, tap the T-Mobile US LTEAPN (the bullet point fills with green).
        8. To verify your APN, tap T-Mobile US LTE with the bullet point filled with green.

          Checking in here to see how things are going? Did setting the APN help?

            Not sure if related, but I also have a Galaxy S7 from AT&T that's unlocked. I'm using the settings that snn555 posted, except for the following:

            • APN protocol: IPv4
            • Turn APN on/off: APN turned off

            I have to set APN to IPv4 because setting it to IPv6 breaks my ability to use the web. I'm not sure why. In any case, the issue is that if I don't install and enable TMobile's Visual Voicemail app, then if I don't reboot my phone each day, voicemail notifications stop appearing until I reboot my phone. Leaving the Visual Voicedmail enabled isn't a problem, but this app is buggy and has a tendency to show you some annoying message about not being able to connect to the network several times a day. When I disabled the app, I had to start rebooting my phone each day again.
