If I miss a call and that person leaves me a voice mail I usually don't get any notification of the voice mail until several minutes later.

For example: I received a call and sent it to voice mail about 18 minutes ago. As of right now I still don't have notification of a voice mail. I know the person left a voicemail because they were standing right here when they left it.

(I am not getting any notices of visual voice mail not working, which happens occasionally)

This is really important to fix because I need to get these messages as soon as they are left!

hmm that's weird, i don't seem to have this problem.
just yesterday i had someone call my voicemail and not even two seconds after i had the notifacation...

maybe take it in to Apple? or maybe your signal strength wasn't very good where you were?

Well here's a noob question:

How do I call my voice mail directly? This will work until I get a chance to take it to Apple

Other than that one tone it really doesn't tell you anything about any message. That was something that frustrated me about the iPhone in that you had to turn it on and then slide off the lock to see if you had any messages or calls. No LED or screen indicator. If you miss that initial tone, you have no clue unless you fire it up.

I've had that problem before, when AT&T was Cingular and I had a SLVR, and sometimes now with the iPhone. I think it's an AT&T-side issue, not an issue with the iPhone, IMO.

would it take longer for you to get notified by the the phone if the person left you a 2 min long message compared to a just a quick 10 sec one?
