VZW Voicemail sending SMS notification?
This is probably a really simple question but I couldn't figure it out after 5 minutes last night and I just tried searching and came up with nothing.
Me and my wife have Storms....when she gets a Voicemail she receives a SMS message notifying her of the voicemail.....
I do not.
Is it normal to recieve SMS when you have voicemail?
I couldn't figure out how to turn this off....maybe I set her up for youmail service or something and forgot that I did....or maybe I don't get them because my voicemail forwards to Google Voice or something....
Maybe this is a feature I have to change on the Verizon website....I see her number had some kind of call forwarding. I disabled it. Not sure where her calls were being forwarded to.....I guess I will see if that stops her SMS voicemail notifications.

Well, when I used to get a VM I would have to select view folder, then select SMS and then delete it. Now with 5.0 I just get the red asterisk on the SMS folder and I just go in and delete it. FWIW I have SMS turned off so I cant get spam that VZW charges me .20 each for.The ORIGINAL!

I get an SMS notification for voicemails as well and I have never turned it on or found a way to disable it. Mine simply says Voicemail and if it is someone in my address book it will display the name, if not just the number as well as the date/time called and the vm number (*86). Its annoying in a way because I think I have a SMS in addition to the vm because I see the vm symbol on the phone and then its just something I have to delete. But luckily my phone is almost always with me and I rarely get voice mails. lol Actually I'm just not that important that a lot of people call me.
Well I guess its normal then. I forward my unanswered calls to my google voice number so I don't get them. I don't remember getting them before I used google voice though. Guess its just bad memory.
I do know missed calls showed on my messages folder by default. So the default is to get 3 notifications when you miss a call and get a voice mail? A missed call in call logs. A message about that missed call. And an SMS voice mail notification. That's really dumb.

same issue here - I get an SMS text message that I have a voice mail waiting, but there is no # or any sort of call back/caller ID associated with the message. How do I turn off this aspect of Voice Mail? I just want bona fide SMS and MMS messages to be flagged, not voice mails as well
