Is Visual Voicemail the same as basic voicemail?
I recently became a subscriber, and I was annoyed that I couldn't set up the voicemail. I was trying to follow the instructions, but I get the automated voice indicating that I'm calling from an unknown number and I should enter my phone number, which wasn't then recognized.
I already searched through the forum where I saw so many references of "basic voicemail" and "visual voicemail". Some references suggest that a basic voicemail was an option, that a visual voicemail is an extra or a separate upgrade, that some subscribers were fine using the basic voicemail, etc.
Since a basic voicemail is sufficient to my needs, I unchecked "Visual voicemail" when I created my plan. Now, I'm under the impression that perhaps "Visual voicemail" became the basic voicemail. Can anyone confirm?
