robotech posted a question in General DiscussionHeads up all - if you get a new iPhone with US CELLULAR - you will LOOSE your Voice mail Indicator!!! Or anything notifying you that you have a voice mail !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unless you use cellular data you have to have your WIFI OFF and your Cellular Data ON then you get voice mail notifications. Both Apple and US CELLULAR are refusing to make any exceptions - that is the way that it works. So in the OLD days if you have a voice mail waiting for you - you get a notification. Now the ONLY way that you will get that Notification is if you have DATA turned on. ( and your wifi off) So please beware that the new iPhone Lacks a feature that was very important - the ability to get voice mail notification(s) with your cellular data turned off - Now this may not be a problem for some people - a lot of people live their lives with Cellular data turned ON - Old phones had the ability to give you a notification that a voice mail was waiting for you - but the new iPhone uses visual voice mail - a feature that CAN NOT BE DISABLED - so be CAREFUL when getting an iPhone and KNOW THAT YOU WILL LOOSE VOICE MAIL NOTIFICATIONS with cellular data off !!!!!!!!!! Please people, I want some Input here as to whom else is having problems with this? I think that US CELLULAR did not think this through - every bit of DATA used costs toward your usage - so if you have say a 300 Mb account - and get hundreds of voice mails you will use up your data real quick. PLEASE GIVE FEED BACK HERE - Of problems with Voice mail on iPhones with US CELLULAR........... I Feel a bit dupped - like I have LOST a feature - unless I PAY more for it - IE use data! I am STILL waiting for a supervisor to call me from US CELLULAR - they where " to busy" to talk to me today........ and will call back within 24 - 48 hrs ( the 4th day of calling and waiting for over 25 Min on hold!) I am just being a dork here ? Or should this just work to send you a notification over cellular like a text message or something that you have a voice mail? My OLD PHONE gets my notification that I have a voice mail waiting for me! <-- OOps I literally have spent hours on the phone with US CELLAR - They are nice - but their tech support people do not have an answer - other than to turn off your WIFI and turn on Cellular Data! What a CROCK - Perhaps US CELLULAR was NOT ready to carry the iPhone - I know that I have been waiting YEARS for this -but loosing a service may be to much for me - I have not made a decision yet - but may go back to my old phone - I can not miss knowing that there is a voice mail waiting for me !!! Anyone else having issues missing voice mail notifications? ? ? We need to get as many people as possible involved here - EDIT - I lowered the font size for they where to busy to talk to me today - Also here is some MORE info - it CAN be done - generally this is the CARRIER's ability - ( or lack thereof cause they are not ready) https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3419227?tstart=0 https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3419227?start=15&tstart=0 https://discussions.apple.com/message/19165832#19165832 And: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=348214 - Ill post this as a NEW thread - and not edit this any longer....
