    I can never remember my pin so I called the voicemail, changed the pin,went back in, asked for pin, checked voicemail and one popped up. That was 8am ET. Just checked and the icon is still there. I did use a backup.

    Still not working this morning. Tried everything mentioned at least once. I'm also same ATT # and same Microsoft account. I've been Skyping my own number and leaving voicemails to test it out. Also tried changing PIN, no luck.

    Is VVM working on anyones UNLOCKED Lumia 950? I'm wondering if the ATT 950 supports it but the unlocked 950 does not.

    **As an update, I spent a few hours with ATT over the phone and their advanced technical support people. By the end of those few hours I was told unequivocally that ANY model of the Microsoft Lumia 950 (ATT or Unlocked), is incompatible with ATT visual voicemail and only basic voicemail functionality exists. When I explained my frustration that some seem to have it and have even seen screenshots of people who have it working, she restated her confidence in her answer and seemed to imply that I must've been confused or that those screenshots were photoshopped. It sounded like she tried to be as helpful as she could, and even called local ATT stores to see if they had VVM on any of their ATT branded 950s in the store.
    **New update, spoke with Microsoft's Lumia customer service people over the phone. My first question was whether the 950 phones they're selling in their stores work with ATT VVM, she said they do. I explained it wasn't working on mine and she said to contact ATT, I told her what ATT explained to me, and then after a minute she corrected herself that the phones MS Store are selling work with ATT VVM but that she read ATT does not support VVM on the phones. I again explained that some people seem to have it working on their ATT 950, to which she replied there was no way that was the case. She told me those users I referred to must be using a network other than ATT. I said I thought that the ATT 950s being sold in MS Stores would only work with the ATT network (otherwise why bother having an unlocked version) and she just went silent for a minute then repeated that ATT says they do not support VVM for the 950. I guess after wasting 4hrs of my Thanksgiving and rare day off from work, I'll give up and plan on taking the 950 back and returning to the 1020 next week.

    Well, I wish I could tell you what voodoo got mine working, but I can't. But it is working, and here is a pic of it working I just took now.

    I have posted this on numerous threads: WP's built in VVM is not supported on dual sim devices. Period. No amount of fussing will make AT&T or T-Mobile VVM work on a dual sim device, unless or until that changes.
    This is why people are getting it to work on the AT&T model (assuming you can overcome AT&T's 'helpful' provisioning issues) but not on the unlocked one.

    That would explain why I didn't have VVM on a Blu Win HD either, though at the time I just assumed it was Blu. Out of curiosity, can you point to any information as to why that's the case?

    I'm on the Insider Preview. Have the Lumia Icon. When I click the Voicemail ... it ask for the password, but fails saying that 'Data connection not available'. Anyone have it working with their Icon?
    Try it with WIFI off. My 929 won't sync VVM on WIFI. Network error.

    Note carefully: Verizon VVM is an app, completely different from the built-in AT&T/tmo VVM. The lessons from one don't apply to the other.

    Its there. It was one of the first things it asked me to set up after activation. I called, left a message, played it, and erased it. The app is built into the phone application. See pic.

    You do not have the dual sim unlocked version. That is why it works.

    I called the voicemail from the phone and set a password. It showed up after that

    try going into settings - network & wireless - cellular and sim - sim settings
    under cellular network, make sure the cellular connection profile is right (AT&T) and then tap "update settings"
    reboot, and hit your voicemail again to see if you get prompted for VVM after you hang up.
    A combination of this and changing my voicemail password fixed it for me. Thanks!

    My SIM finally got activated, after setting up voicemail and then calling voicemail and giving the phone my voicemail password, it seems to be working as expected.

    Must be for AT&T versions, and not dual SIM unlocked models.

    My AT&T-branded single SIM 950 worked right from the start. Those who are still having issues with VVM at AT&T, please specify:

    a. Purchased 950 single SIM at AT&T
    b. Purchased 950 single SIM unlocked.
    c. Purchased 950 dual SIM unlocked.

    I gather that dual SIM will not work now with AT&T, but wonder if the unlocked single SIM MS phones are working well or not.

    That's the way VVM is supposed to look? If so, then I'm good.

    A poster on Reddit mentioned that there could be an issue with dual SIM phones like the unlocked L950/XL and VVM. Anyone with the unlocked phone get VVM working? I can't get it to work.

    Off topic, in the phone app click the ellipses on the toolbar. There should be an option for recorded calls.

    On topic, has anyone tried to use VVM on AT&T with an unlocked Single SIM Lumia 950 or unlocked Single SIM Lumia 950XL? I am not sure if these are even available for sale in the USA, but they are available from some global/international resellers.
