Voicemail Notifications

I have an iPhone SE and I used to get notifications of received voicemail by sound and by a red dot on the Voicemail icon in Phone. Then I changed my phone number and had to re-initialize my voicemail. I must have chosen a different option along the way and I now only get texts with 800???????. I have tried to initialize my voicemail again but that is not an option offered in the menu. How can I set-up my notifications so I get the sound and red dot I used to get.

Koodo sends you a SMS when you get a new VM? Didn’t know thye didi that.

Yes. But I don’t know how I got that and I don’t want it. I want to go back to the red dot and the sound notification I used to have.

I’ll flag it to a rep, because I don’t know how to do that.

Hello there! We’d be happy to help you out. Would you please be so kind and send us a message over Social Media? We’ll need to make several changes to the account and we can’t do it by discussing over the public forum. Thanks!

Did you get an answer, I'm having same problem?

As instructed by Koodo, I reached out to them via Messenger, they contacted me and reset my account. The problem was fixed.

I receive absolutely no notification of voicemails whatsoever.  I have been missing loads of important messages.  A Koodo rep just told me the only way to receive notifications of voicemails is to add a $5/month “Visual Notifications” option to my account.  This can’t be right.  I don’t even need a text message telling me I have voicemails.  I just need the little red dot on the icon that I have always had.  Anyone???
