Question

Voicemail notification is where on S6 Verizon???

Voicemail notification is where on S6 Verizon???

I do not see a Voicemail indicator when I receive a voicemail.
I see a notification on the screen and that is it.

Shouldn't there be a little dot or something on the phone icon on bottom of screen?

I am using Verizon voicemail and not Google voice.

Thanks
Peter

Looks to be happening.

Note: I removed the link as that forum appears to have been hacked.

From another Android forum:
"You need to log onto your verizon account on your computer and then switch the voicemail. Go to the free one and not the visual voicemail. Something like that. I just looked and the interface changed and I can't find where to do it now. It is a plan feature."

Thanks, I called verizon and voicemail is indeed on and working.
Verizon had no idea re this.
Samsung tech support level 2 had no clue.

Not sure what you mean by logging into verizon account and switch the voicemail, I see no option at all.

Thanks

But I won't be able to poke around their account for a month as nothing is wrong so I can't look. But it is a problem from what folk are reporting. Verizon is on the hook on this one.

Voicemail icon missing Samsung S6 solved.

Okay I found it.The VM indicator does not show on the phone icon at bottom of home screen. You need to click on Apps on right bottom.
Then look for a folder called Verizon. Take the "Voice Mail" icon (slide it out of there) and place it on the home screen. Then it will show a number on that icon when you have a voicemail

Now there

Thanks

Chat with Verizon

Used the chat function with Verizon and they fixed it in 5 minutes. That's the only way to get rid of it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
