    I was very surprised today when i turned my LTE/4G on because i noticed my data usage has been exceedingly high and will most likely go past my allotted usage. Upon turning on the data my voice mail came thru from a few hours ago.

    AT&T is doing something fishy here . Maybe this increases my data usage and bills me for it

    Guys / Gals please chk if your voice mail is using data. Or maybe is a setting i have to change.

    It's visual voicemail. You receive an audio file through data, and that's your voicemail. Been that way since visual voicemail existed.

    Well if you are using Visual Voicemail that does use data, been that way since Visual Voicemail debuted on iPhone 1 in 2007, unlike making a phone call it pings AT&T's servers and downloads an audio file. It shouldn't be using THAT much data, but it does use some. If you are using data off you will have to call your voicemail to check your messages the old fashioned way

    Call AT&T and have them disable the VVM service then and you will have the old school voice mail system then with just the indicator on the Phone tile that you have some waiting where you need to call in to retrieve them.
