Visual voicemail for iPhone

Last updated by Christian Robinette

What is Visual Voicemail?

Visual voicemail is a random-access voicemail with a visual interface. Such an interface presents a list of messages for playback. This means you can listen to whatever message you want and you do not have to listen to the messages in order.

Note: in order to use Visual voicemail with Ting the device must be running iOS 10 or later and GSM devices must be running the Ting Carrier Settings

To transfer your existing voicemail, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Phone app, then tap the Voicemail tab.
  2. Tap Set Up Now.
  3. Enter your password,* then tap done.

Ting carrier settings for GSM iPhone

If you are running iOS 10 or later, you can insert the Ting GSM SIM card and accept the update to the Carrier settings. Once the update is applied, you will have access to features such as Visual Voicemail and Wi-Fi Calling.

If the phone doesn't automatically pick up the carrier update, you can prompt the phone by doing this.

  • Open Settings
  • Open About
  • Check Carrier Version
    • If it says Ting 28.4 or up, then the update applied
    • If not, then you will need to tap the Carrier Version until the phone prompts you to accept the update.
