    Voicemail notification shows up in SMS

    Advertisement



    When I recieve an voicemail, it shows up with both the VM icon and a text in my SMS section, saying VoiceMail.

    I have my SMS text seperated from my normal emails. Anyway, I can seperate the VM from showing up as text in my SMS section? I never had that on any of my previous BB's. I want the icon though.

    Not real sure if you can turn this off at all......

    The only thing that you can do is dial you VM and see if you can turn it off on the actual carrier VM options. But after doing some research, i have found that not alot of people have had success turning this off, but talk to your carrier specifically to see!!!

    I recently had ATT and this never showed up in my SMS section.

    So it confuses me as to why my Sprint phone does this.

    I want the icon, but not the text.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I saw this some where else in the Stacks. I hope this is what you were asking about.

    with sprint blackberries you can separate the sms in box from the messages at that point the device handles the short message for voice mail as a text message or sms. its not an error but it is how sprint notifies you of a voice message. its the way sprint does things.

    Since the idea makes no sense at all, it makes sense that Sprint does it this way.

    This happens on my Bell mobility phone too. I think it's due to different voicemail systems. Sprint and bell uses an sms notification system and AT&T uses a system that recognizes differently.

    You know what - it's actually kind of handy. Just open the message, click the trackball - and you'll get a prompt to call voicemail. Then, after you've deleted the voicemail, you can delete the sms.

    It's different, I know, but it's kinda handy and frankly, the voicemail icon is pretty small....

    Just my two cents

    Don't laugh... But I might have been under a rock all this time but since when did verizon put who the voice mail is from in their voice mail notification? I just noticed it today for the 1st time. If you go into your message inbox and open the voice mail message..at the to of the message it says who it was from...this even works when my phone was off when I originally received the voice mail.

    I have a Sprint 8330 and I also noticed the VM SMS notification after I upgraded to 4.5, I don't believe I got them before the upgrade if I recall correctly.

    I get both the status indicator/icon and the VM, and the popup dialog. Sadley you cannot disable the SMS or Popup.

    The same thing happens to me..which I don't mind..I just hate the fact that I can't check my vm from a landline phone..I have verizon..and every carrier I had I was able to check my messages from a landline but unfortunately with verizon I can't do that..

    You can ck your vm from a land line with VZW. All you do is dail your cell number from the land line and when you hear your greeting you push the * and it will ask you for your pw. Then its all the same from there. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    BELIEVE ME I HAVE TRIED THAT..AND IT NEVER SEEMS TO WORK. IVE ALSO CONTACTED VERIZON ABOUT THAT, THEY TELL ME I NEED TO GET THE ENHANCED VM WHICH IS 4.95 A MONTH. (ABOUT TO TRY THE * FEATURE AGAIN FOR THE 20TH TIME) RINGING...RINGING...RINGING...RINGING...VOICEMAIL. .* BEEP. THATS WHAT I GET EVERY TIME. WHEN I HIT * IT STARTS TO RECORD..SO IM NOT SURE WHAT TO DO..I KNOW IM NOT GOING TO PAY 5$ FOR ENHANCED ID RATHER CHECK IT FROM MY BERRY...
