    Default Delayed voicemail notifications?

    I'm having an odd issue with my iPhone SE. I used to get voicemail notifications instantly but now I don't. I have switched my sim out of the SE a few times and with each of those phones, I got them instantly.

    Most recently, someone left me a voicemail on May 31 and I just received it on June 3. I'm not sure if the issue is my sim or the phone itself.

    Has this happened to anyone? How did you deal?

    I don't recall experiencing anything like that, but if it were me, I'd contact my wireless provider and have them troubleshoot from their end before resetting the iPhone or anything like that.

    Hmm okay, I'll consider that thank you. By the way, this is the unlocked SE.

    I havent noticed a delay but my phone has said visual voicemail unavailable several times. Not sure what caused that issue or if they are even related.

    That's really odd.

    I did a switch of phones again and this time, I had 5 new voice messages (4 of them are spam, but still). I wonder if there's a way to refresh voicemails on the iPhone like I have on my other phone.

    That sounds really weird! I would check with your carrier!

    I have been stalling about doing something about this, so I have been temporarily switching phones.

    Anyway, I contacted my carrier and they tried to help me with this. What they found out is that there is an issue with the SE and visual voicemail temporarily and that is something that can be fixed in the next update by Apple. For now, my only solution is to switch phones or just dial my voicemail the old way to check if someone left a voicemail after I receive a call.

    I'm going to try the restarting thing, that's a great idea! Interesting that this happens with your 5s. When I had one, it was okay but it was on like ios 9 something. It makes me wonder when this started.
