Visual Voicemail FAQs

General Information
  1. What is Visual Voicemail?

    Visual Voicemail lets you view voicemail messages you receive and listen to your messages in any order on your devices. You can scroll through your messages, pick the ones you want to listen to, and erase or archive them right from your device's screen.

    Other features include:

    • Reply to messages by call back or text
    • Get onscreen access to message status
    • Access voice messages with 1 button and get instant playback

    Notes:

    • We offer three different Visual Voicemail services, so not all features listed above come with each service. Refer to the Voicemail Comparison chart to view and compare the different features available with each voicemail service.

    • iPhone® comes with its own built-in Visual Voicemail service. Refer to Apple's Visual Voicemail help page for more information.


  2. How much does Visual Voicemail cost?

    Visual Voicemail and Premium Visual Voicemail cost $2.99/month per phone. Basic Visual Voicemail and iPhone Visual Voicemail are included with your smartphone plan. Data charges also may apply when using Visual Voicemail.

    To use any voicemail service, you'll need to set it up first.

    Note: If you have multiple phones on your account, you can subscribe each phone individually as desired.

    Refer to the Voicemail Comparison chart to view and compare the different features available with each voicemail service.



  4. Can Visual Voicemail be used with any device?

    • All smartphones on standard monthly accounts
    • Select basic phones on standard monthly accounts

    Refer to our Visual Voicemail: Compatible Phones page to see if your basic phone is supported.

    Note: Visual Voicemail isn't currently available for phones on prepaid accounts.



  5. What happens to my messages when I upgrade to Visual Voicemail?

  7. How do I subscribe to Visual Voicemail?

    To subscribe to Visual Voicemail:

    Note: Visual Voicemail isn't currently available for prepaid accounts.

    1. Check the list of Visual Voicemail: Compatible Phones to verify that Visual Voicemail will work on your phone.

    2. Open the Voicemail app on your mobile phone and follow the setup instructions:

      • Smartphones - Open the Voicemail app from the App menu.

      • Basic phones - Open the Messaging menu and select Visual Voicemail.

        Notes:
        • You may need to set up your basic voice mailbox using *86 prior to setting up Visual Voicemail.

        • You may also need to enter your voicemail password which is what you entered when setting up your basic voice mailbox using *86. If you can't remember it, you can reset your voicemail password.

    3. Follow the onscreen prompts to accept the Terms & Conditions and finish subscribing.

    You've successfully completed the steps to subscribe to Visual Voicemail. It may take up to five minutes for the Visual Voicemail setup to complete.



Using Visual Voicemail
  1. How do I check my Visual Voicemail messages?

    To check your messages:

    1. Open the Visual Voicemail app on your device.
    2. Select the message you want to listen to.
    3. Select Play to listen to the message.

      Note: You can also pause, rewind, skip ahead and more.

    You've successfully listened to a message. To listen to other messages, go back to your Visual Voicemail inbox and repeat the steps above.



  2. Do I need a password to use Visual Voicemail?

    You may need the password you created when you set up your voice mailbox.

    You'll only need to enter your password in the Visual Voicemail app once, during the initial setup of the service.

    Notes:

    • If you change your voice mailbox password, you'll also need to update your password in the Visual Voicemail app.

    • To limit unauthorized access to your voicemail, consider locking your phone when you aren't using it.


  3. Can I access Visual Voicemail if I'm outside the data coverage area?

    No, Visual Voicemail isn't supported over Wi-Fi. If your mobile device can't send or receive data, you won't be able to receive your Visual Voicemail messages. However, you can still retrieve your voicemail messages by calling:

    • *86 from your mobile phone
    • Your mobile number from any phone:
    1. When you hear your voicemail greeting, select # on your keypad.

    2. Follow the prompts to enter your voicemail password and listen to your messages.


  4. Is my voice mailbox and my Visual Voicemail inbox on my device synchronized?

    Yes, in most circumstances the Visual Voicemail inbox on your device and your voice mailbox on our network will be synchronized.

    However, if data coverage isn't available, updates you make on your device (e.g., erase messages) may not update on your basic voice mailbox until data coverage becomes available (and vice versa). Then the next time you open Visual Voicemail, you'll be prompted to enter your new password.



  5. How do I change my voicemail password online?

    To change your password online:

    1. Go to the Manage voicemail password page in My Verizon.
    2. Select the option to create your own password.

      Note: You can also select to have one chosen for you.

    3. Enter your password in the Create New Password field.
    4. Re-enter your new password in the Confirm Password field.
    5. Click Submit.

    You've successfully changed your voicemail password online.

    Business accounts:

    You can reset your voicemail password in My Business Account:

    1. Hover over the Account Maintenance tab, and click Wireless Numbers & Users.
    2. Select the mobile number that requires the password reset.
    3. Click the Actions tab.
    4. Click Reset Voice Mail Password.
    5. Follow the prompts to change your voicemail password.

    You've successfully changed your voicemail password for your business account.

    Note: Not all My Business Account users will be able to access this page. Access to the page is determined by the role you're assigned in My Business Account. For more information, please contact your company administrator.



  6. How do I change my voicemail greeting if I subscribe to Visual Voicemail?

    Call *86 from your mobile phone and follow the prompts to change your greeting. Or you can use the voicemail app to change your greeting if you use iPhone Visual Voicemail, Basic Visual Voicemail or Premium Visual Voicemail.



  7. What happens if I have expiring Visual Voicemail messages?

    Visual Voicemail holds messages in the Inbox until they are designated for deletion by the voicemail system. If you want to retain messages, use the Archive option to save them to your phone or memory card.



  8. How do I unsubscribe from Visual Voicemail service?

    To cancel Visual Voicemail service:

    1. Go to the Products & Apps page in My Verizon.
    2. Click the Manage Your Products tab.
    3. In the Visual Voicemail section, click Remove from Account in the top-right corner.
    4. Follow the onscreen prompts to remove the feature from your account.

    You've successfully canceled Visual Voicemail.

    All of your existing messages should remain in your voice mailbox after you cancel, but you may lose some custom greetings you've created. However, before canceling the service, we recommend archiving important messages to your device just to make sure you have a backup.

    Notes:

    • If you have a business account, you can remove this feature from the Account Maintenance tab in My Business Account or Verizon Enterprise Center.
    • If you use iPhone Visual Voicemail, you can't unsubscribe from it.
    • Unsubscribing from the Visual Voicemail service doesn't remove the app from your device. The Visual Voicemail app comes preinstalled on your device and can't be removed.


Archiving
  1. What is Visual Voicemail archiving?

    Visual Voicemail lets you save important messages to your phone or external memory card.

    Note: Archiving isn't available on all phones, including iPhone.



  2. What can I do with archived messages in Visual Voicemail?

    Now you can own your message and transfer these files to other locations for additional use. Use these audio files to store memories or for important events.



  3. How do I archive a message in Visual Voicemail?
    1. Select the message you want to archive.
    2. Tap Options.
    3. Tap Archive or Save a copy.
