I have two Republic Wireless phones, a Moto X 1st gen and a Moto X 2nd gen. I’ve never had any problems with the Moto X 2nd gen in terms of voicemails. Both phones are running Android 5.1 and Republic Wireless app 188.8.131.529.
From now on, I will be talking about the Moto X 1st gen phone. In the default phone app, when a voicemail arrives, it is represented as a Visual Voicemail (with an associated phone number) or it will be shown as “Voicemail” (with no associated phone number). Clicking on a Visual Voicemail plays the message immediately. Clicking on a “Voicemail” calls Republic Wireless to check the voicemail (and requires a password). My question is, why do some voicemails arrive as Visual Voicemails while others require calling RW voicemail?
I tried a few things listed here:
Visual voicemail not working
Visual Voicemail Failed
As far as I can tell, those actions achieved nothing.
Is there any logic to when Republic Wireless will create a Visual Voicemail versus when it forces you to call the RW voicemail?
Thanks for reading,
