T-mobile Free visual voicemail & 9700 Now available for purchase

amyers let us know that T-mobile is now letting 9700 owners activate their visual voicemail service for free. But there is a trick to for those of you without the 9700 to add the service as well. Amyers changed the phone on his settings to 9700 and then went to services and added the visual voicemail, which I was able to do as well. A couple of weeks ago I called T-mobile about it and they told me it was going to be offered for free once the 5.0 OS was released & it looks like it should be an option once they officially release it for other devices.

I was able to add the service for free to my account but could not get it to work on my 8900 just yet, will see if eventually it starts working. Try it for yourself & see if it works.

On other news those of you who have been patiently waiting for the 9700 to arrive T-mobile just made it available online for purchase you can go to this link and place your order.

  1. t-mobile needs to kind of update that link, it says 9700 but the picture they show is a 8900

  2. I follwed ur instructions to add the Visual Voicemail on my 8900 and it worked perfectly! finally, I have visual voicemail. Thanks for the tip.

  3. I’ve had Visual Voicemail for close to, if not well over a month now. It sends a message to ur Visual VM box and ur SMS box.

  4. I guess I will be switching to T mobile in a few
    hours I have been waiting for Att to launch the
    9700 and it seems like they r just delaying
    it more and more. I have wanted visual voicemail
    But wanted to make sure it was perfected and
    Its looking like to me that tmobile is doing just
    That. Thank you for the update I thought I
    Was going to have to wait forever.

  5. The visual voicemail isnt working for me. I have a curve 8900 and I went to mytmobile and changed my device to the bold 9700. Then I went to services and turned visual voicemail on. I then did a battery pull and clicked on the icon and tried to enable it and it still says unable to activate. Am I missing a step??

  6. Nevermind….I had to change to the primary user cause its a family plan….I got it working now.

  7. so on the 8900 do you all have OS 5. or on a lower OS?
