They offer visual VM on WP7 LTE devices like the Lumia 900 and Titan 2 so I would say there is a really good chance it will work on WP8 devices.
I'm still running an old Samsung Focus w/ 3G and never had the option though it was speculated to come at some point... but never seemed to happen. Big thanks for letting me know that it is available to some on ATT!
I had been wanting this feature, however since I get VVM with Google Voice and one of the many third party apps, I no longer need it. Also I like the fact that I can have Google Voice transcribe the email. It may not be perfect, but it is great when I am in a meeting and I cannot listen to the voice-mail. If AT&T does have it with the new WP8 devices I will have to see what I prefer. To use Google Voice for VVM, you do not need a Google Voice phone number.
You can always set up a youmail.com account and download the magikmail app from the WP store. I started using youmail when I had my blackberry a few years ago. I am on my fourth smartphone with the same account (blackberry, android, and windows phone) with no issue. All of my settings have stayed the same, no new greeting, etc. Plus, if I am going to be without service I can have my voicemails sent to an e-mail account.
yes they do... when i activated my new 920 they specifically asked me if i wanted this feature activated, when i asked if there was a charge she said no, i elected not to at this time but they do in fact offer it
My original Samsung Focus didn't. After activating my Red Lumia 920 with AT&T via the instructions, it still didn't have visual voicemail. So I contacted AT&T technical support via web chat and the problem was that I was using a data plan that wasn't offered anymore. So he didn't make any changes to my plan but he was able to get my phone switched to using visual voicemail.
So if your new phone for whatever reason does not have visual voicemail, just contact support and they can resolve it for you.
My wife and I both have Nokia 920s and the Visual Voicemail messages are ridiculously quiet. The volume is OK when using the speaker phone, but is way too quiet when just listening through the normal speaker. Is anyone else having this issue on different phones? Several others have commented on having the same issue with their 920s, so I'm wondering if this is an AT&T issue, a WP8 issue, or a Nokia issue.
