Disable "Visual Voicemail" on Android / T-Mobile
January 17, 2016

If you are a T-Mobile USA subscriber, you may be using "Visual Voicemail" without even realizing it. I discovered that I was using Visual Voicemail when I noticed that voicemail had stopped working for me, on a Google Nexus 4 phone.

Go to the phone app, select settings:

phone settings

Select "Calls":

call settings

Select "Voicemail", and turn off "Visual Voicemail":
