    Finally gave in to the modern world and acquired an iPhone 5s a couple of weeks ago. Longtime Mac user, but just not a smart phone person...

    Anyway, is there an app to 'assist' in the voicemail situation?

    From what I gather via cursory research, the repeated voicemail notification of my feature phone doesn't transfer over to the (supposedly) more advanced iPhone.

    Is this an Apple oversight? I wouldn't think it was Verizon as the 'feature' worked on the ancient handset I had previously.

    The rants that I saw posted were from 2007 and 2008 so Apple 'should' have had time to look into the issue, but it would not surprise me if they haven't.

    (Should I also add that I would have left Apple years ago if I didn't hate Windows and Google so much?)

    Just wanted to confirm that the 'behavior' of the iPhone is not to offer continuing voicemail notifications and establish whether there is a third-party app to address this.

    Settings > Notification Center > Messages > Repeat Alerts > (set to Never, Once, Twice, 3 Times, 5 Times, 10 Times)

    Of course, this will also affect how alerts are repeated for all notifications - messages, text, email, voice mail, etc AFAIK.

    Many, MANY thanks...I doubt I would ever have uncovered that setting on my own...

    I am getting that the iPhone only alerts or notifies one of "Live" voice and text messages.
